Tips for Eating Out With Celiac Disease (or Any Food Intolerances)

Eating out with Celiac Disease, any Autoimmune condition, or food intolerance can be a daunting and scary task.

Whenever you eat out, you’re trusting your health and wellbeing to the restaurant staff - who most of the time, doesn’t have your best interest in mind when preparing your food.

Since I’ve needed to switch to a 100% gluten free diet, I’ve been able to come up with some tried and true techniques to feeling as comfortable as I can while dining out.

I’ve used these tips to successfully eat gluten free at many restaurants for years, and now I want to share them with you!

Tips For Reintroductions on the low-FODMAP Diet

The low-FODMAP diet isn’t forever, and it’s really only a tool to use to reduce your IBS and SIBO symptoms while you work on healing your gut and getting rid of any overgrowths.

I know how difficult it is to work on expanding your diet after you’ve been eating low-FODMAP for a while and feeling great. But it’s important to reintroduce these carbs as they’re the only source of food for your good gut bacteria.

So, I came up with a few tips for helping you get started in your FODMAP reintroductions!

#1: Work on introducing the category of FODMAPs you don’t react to

#2: Start with small portion sizes

#3: Support your digestion

#4: Don’t stop reintroducing if you experience some symptoms

My Health Journey

My health journey starts with a diagnosis of Celiac Disease, and continues today with issues like SIBO, leaky gut, dysbiosis, adrenal fatigue, liver toxicity, and overgrowths of pathogenic bacteria.

But, I’ve come such a long way, and have learned so much in the process. My gut is well on its way to healing and being the gut it used to be.
