Thanks Dot! Toronto is four hours north east of me but its ok.

Walksfar? I've not ever heard of that before. I've been using El Pieto and Glutino products that i've found but they are hard to come by!

By the way, Good morning everyone!

Do you have a chick-fil-a in your area? I was surprised to find that they have gluten free products.

Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, unless you are willing to move your feet.

God grant me the serenity to accept those I cannot change, to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know itís me.

Jen - maybe you could take a look around this site and email this person for ideas in your area:

http://torontoceliac.blogspot.com/

Also, I always ask for the manager. It's not hard to steam veggies in foil, a little butter with freshly ground pepper and garlic, and grill some plain meat or something. They just need to talk to the chef. It's worthwhile to try.

Do you have a restaurant wallet card explaining what you can and can't have? It's helpful (and sometimes I'll even make enlarged copies for them to keep...hopefully they keep it anyway). There are free ones online - just google (through SP of course!). You can also buy a set in different languages for different cuisines from Triumph Dining. google them too. I think they're about $10, but they're laminated and nice.

I haven't found any GF support groups down this way in Southwestern Ontario. I know my aunts and a few cousins are and keep passing on information back and forth but that's it.

I've asked but been told "sorry, no" when I was in Toronto and London last week but i'll keep up on the asking. They do have stuff for Diabetes though

JENMCCL - do you belong to a support group? Maybe it could start with one restaurant that you frequent a lot and then blossom? It's not going to until you keep asking though ... on that note, a local (chain - Abuelo's) doesn't have an official gf menu, but at one of the chains a chef has celiac and he's shared his gf menus. It was the first time I'd had a sauce in a restaurant: it was sooo GOOD! If I didn't venture in, I'd have never talked to the manager and found this out!

Talk to managers, talk to owners! Bug 'em emoticon in a cute and desperate way! lol

thanks for the tip, Dot!!!!!!

I just wonder when Canada is going to come up with something like this for restaurants. There are so many that I can't go in!

I have a gluten and celiac alert on google and this article was a good one. I like that Dr. Green mentions how other countries are more amenable to the gf diet. You think this is gonna shame them into more gf options at restaurants and stores/delis? I keep hoping! emoticon

The more aware people are, the more options we'll have. Please share your celiac awareness so we can get gf menus everywhere, not just at PF Changs or in NYC.
