If you think the kitchen cleanliness is your biggest worry when eating out, think again. While researching allergen information on local restaurants to maybe expand where we can eat with our 5yo’s food allergies, and to make traveling easier, I found a wealth of ick. It’s no wonder I’ve been having GI issues after eating out. Seemingly innocuous food is really pretty nasty for you. And here I thought my biggest problem was going to be to find places that don’t fry shrimp and fries in the same oil.
-Nitrates/nitrites are part of the cold cut hoagie territory, but sulfites in the steak, Subway? Gross.
-Quiznos, Quiznos, Quiznos. No wonder I was hooked on your mesquite chicken hoagie. It was full of processed crap to make it taste like it was laced with crack.
-Denny’s has MSG, sulfites, and their pancake mix is made on equipment with tree nuts, so that makes them out for us now too.
These are just what I found that I wasn’t aware of. What allergen information have you found about some of the restaurants where your family has eaten? What are some allergy friendly places that you enjoy a family meal out?
