This is a list of GF restaurants by the Huffington Post, my question is: Are they Celiac-Safe?
As many of you know my quest is to get restaurants regulated so when they put GF on the menu, there is also the knowledge and the responsibility going along with it. Gluten-Free does NOT mean celiac-safe and cross contamination is a huge problem.
Coming together as a community is what needs to be done to spread the word about what restaurants are safe – do take the extra precautions necessary, and what restaurants do not. This can be accomplished through tweets, yelping, facebook, blogging… to weed out eateries that are using GF merely to bring in more customers and bump up their sales. It’s up to us to say, This is Not ok, you cannot put GF on your menu unless you are responsible with ingredients & cross contamination.
As well as giving shout outs, appreciation, and our business to those restaurants all over the world that do.
We are the consumer and in our money driven society, we choose where to spend that money. Lets choose wisely, share information, changing the world we live in to create a safe eating environment.
Change starts one person at a time… the community starts the domino effect bringing that change.
