Navigating the world of gluten-free eating can be daunting, especially when you are just starting out. The premise of gluten-free eating is very simple: if you stick to whole, unprocessed foods and avoid wheat, barley, rye and all their derivatives, then you’re golden.
However, easy as it may seem to get a simple, whole foods meal when you go out to eat, you will quickly learn that you have to be on your A-game in order to ensure that you don’t accidently get some gluten onto your plate.
Remember, if you are gluten intolerant, you need to stay away from gluten 100% of the time. Here are a few foods that you need to be extra vigilant about when you go out to eat:
1. Scrambled Eggs: Some restaurants add pancake batter to their scrambled eggs to make them fluffier.

3. Vegetables: They could be steamed in the same water that is used to prepare/reheat pasta.
