Wendy's has a GF .pdf file directly on their website!!!

(If you click on this blog post title, it will take you directly to the .pdf file on Wendy's website containing the list of Gluten-Free menu items) Ok... so it's a small wonder, but what a wonder it is! The very fact that they actually have taken the time to find out which of their products ARE Gluten-Free, and then actually put it ON their website, is pretty remarkable to me. Burger King lists the 8 top allergens on their menu items, which is good as well, but it's nice to have a straight-forward list of the items that are gluten-free. Sadly ( :( ), Wendy's french fries are NOT gluten-free, which is a bummer. Ashton hasn't been allowed to eat them since he started the diet, so that's not a big issue, but still, it IS indeed, a bummer. Their hamburger patties are gluten-free though AND since he's started eating baked potatoes, he CAN have a plain baked potato from Wendy's as well! Yay! It's always nice to find safe "normal" foods for Ashton to eat. Other fast food places that we eat at that are "safe" for Ashton are: Burger King (hamburger patties, their french fries ARE GF, apple fries and usually a soda of some kind), Chick Fil A (fries only.... I haven't tried getting him to eat the grilled chicken breast......). Now that I know Wendy's is "safe", we'll be letting him eat there, as well. Of course, keep in mind, if you are avoiding casein (dairy) containing products as well, you have to make sure you're not consuming the items that have casein in them. Just because it's GF, does not mean it's CF. :) Just thought I'd pass this along
