Weight Watchers recently introduced an all-new program. And with it, is selling all-new materials. I got myself a "Dining Out Companion," which is an updated list of foods offered at major chain restaurants and their POINTS values. I thought I'd go through and highlight everything that was gluten free, as listed on the restaurant's web site. Easy peasy.
Except for something huge that I didn't know (probably all of you know this, but I didn't, maybe someone else doesn't either).
McDonald's and Wendy's fries and hash browns are NOT gluten free! Gulp. (Though Burger King's and Dairy Queen's fries are.)
We'll be switching to Apple Dippers instead of fries, though it may be a tough sell for the kids. It's a sad, sad day at the GFF house, I tell you.
Qdoba has lots of great gluten-free choices, and we've been eating there a lot. Not so much frugal, though. Wendy's is pretty good, what with the chili and baked potatoes and mandarin oranges and yogurt, but without fries? Dairy Queen also seems to be a good option, their burger patties, fries, soft serve, and many of their prepackaged treats are gluten free.
Or, you know, we could be more frugal and just stay home. :)
