There are more and more restaurants coming out with gluten- free menus as well as other specialized menus. It is starting to be like the “pick and choose” your meal as it used to be on air planes. Yep, those days are gone, but back to this topic of gluten and eating out.
There are some things to do to help your eating out experience a winner. I want to share a few key points to be sure you are ready to come home with a palate that is happy and tummy satisfied, by doing a few things in preparation. Let’s cover a few of these key topics:
- 1. You can always call ahead and ask about the restaurant’s willingness to cater to your needs.
Carry a card (wallet sized dining card which can be purchased) with you needs. This card can be handed to the waiter and he can show to the lesser informed chef.
3)Bring a few items tucked in your purse or bag to supplement what they may not be able to give you: gluten-free bread slice or roll for dipping in olive oil, or a small jar of your own gluten free salad dressing, for example.
There are other points to share but these three are sure to help make your eating out dining experience more enjoyable.
