your guide to eating gluten free at fast food places! (part 3)

hey guys!! so one thing that definitely worried me at the start of this journey was how to order at fast-food restaurants. i mean…. fries being cooked in the same oil as the breaded chicken, employees not changing gloves?? sounds like a recipe for disaster (or cross-contamination) if you ask me. so while you can’t order at all fast-food restaurants (looking at you Burger King), here are some fast-food restaurants that as long as you inform the workers that you have a gluten allergy, you should be safely able to eat at. that said, this list is not professional advice, and there is always a risk for cross-contamination at any of these restaurants. please be careful while choosing where to eat especially if you have celiacs. none of these places are guaranteed to avoid cross contamination and there is always a risk of becoming sick after eating at these restaurants. gluten free items are underlined.

wendys – wendys is one my favorite fast food restaurants. entrees include strawberry summer salad, southwest avocado chicken salad, taco salad, and apple pecan chicken salad. sides include seasoned potatoes, apple bites, and strawberries, vanilla and chocolate frosty, all forms of fries, all forms of baked potatoes, and chili.

subway – I’ve said this many times, but Subway has some of my favorite salads. Select locations offer gluten-free bread, but your best bet is one of their salads. Toppings include all meats except meatballs, teriyaki chicken strips, chicken enchilada, falafel, seafood sensation, veggie patty, and vegan patty, all cheese, all dressings/condiments, and all veggies. Soups include black bean soup, broccoli and cheddar soup, mediterranean vegetable soup, spicy chicken tortilla soup, and tomato basil. Some locations offer a gluten-free brownie.
