Hi! Welcome...

I\'m a busy internet marketer with time for myself. Having a gluten intolerance has been a challenge, but it\'s getting easier. Follow my adventures as I figure out what I can - and cannot - eat, where to buy it, and how to cook it.

Swiss Chalet’s Allergen Guide Wins Points with Me

Swiss Chalet is a restaurant staple

Swiss Chalet is a restaurant staple

Since being diagnosed with a gluten intollerance, Swiss Chalet has become my go-to restuarant. It’s familiar, it’s comfortable, and I know I can always get something to eat there. And who doesn’t love chicken?

(Also, the chalet sauce has super, magic healing abilities, but that’s another story.)

When ordering from their site tonight, I discovered a link at the bottom to an allergen guide. Really? They have one? Oh yes, AND it has wheat/gluten listed on it. Here’s a summary of what you can have:

Starters

Garden Salad, Greek Salad.

Can You Eat Lasagna?

How do you deal with family members who don’t understand that you can’t eat certain foods?

I had a conversation today with an extended family member today about what I could eat for dinner when I visit, and I seriously had to shake my head at some of the questions. Can I eat lasagna? How about potatoes? And carrots?

This only a few days after Thanksgiving dinner, where I was hardly able to eat anything. Apparently, the thing to do this year was to put bread crumbs on all the vegetables. I was able to have the basics: turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce.

El Peto’s Chocolate Cake Mix – A Review

I celebrated my birthday a few weeks ago, and wanted to find a decent gluten-free cake that wasn’t…well, disgusting. To be honest, I haven’t had much luck with gluten-free baked goods; they’ve always either been silty or very dense. Either way, not very appetizing. But my friends have been known to show up with cake, and I wanted something tasty that I could eat. Or, if no one brought cake, something that my “normal” friends wouldn’t mind eating.
