People living with celiac disease or a severe gluten allergy can find dining out challenging. While there’s the question of whether a restaurant offers options beyond a boring salad or grilled chicken on the menu, there are also concerns over cross-contamination in the kitchen with non-gluten free ingredients, which could possibly trigger an allergic reaction.
Celiac is an autoimmune disease that causes damage to the small intestine when someone eats gluten. This can affect nutrient absorption and lead to other long-term health problems.
Thankfully, plenty of restaurants around Atlanta have adapted menus to accommodate a gluten-free lifestyle, and offer everything from cheeseburgers on gluten-free buns to hearty shakshuka. Note: not every restaurant listed has a dedicated gluten-free kitchen or preparation process.
