If you are dating someone who has both gluten and soy allergies, then it might seem that you have to be very restrictive with where you go out to eat. In fact it can feel overwhelming and cause you to think that you have to limit yourself to home-cooked meals so that you have complete control over the ingredients. However, that's not exactly true, which is great news for people who want to eat out and enjoy going to a restaurant on their date. Here are a few dining options to check out because they will offer items without soy or gluten.
This is a great choice because so many of the dishes won't have any soy or gluten. And it's also perfect for a fancy, romantic dinner. Steak is free of gluten, of course, and as long as you don't choose any sort of sauce that has soy as a base, you are safe on that frontier as well. A perfect dish would be a steak, some vegetables, and a nice bottle of wine. You could just skip any of the breads or rolls that come with the meal and opt for a dessert that doesn't have gluten (an ice cream, for instance, instead of a slice of cake).
Another fantastic place to consider going is an Indian restaurant. These places are perfect because they are exotic, which will satisfy those people who are looking for something out of the ordinary. The spices and sauces in Indian food don't normally include soy products (which is more prominent in Eastern cooking). There are lots of dishes that are made with basmati rice, vegetables, and things such as chicken or beef. There are even lots of options for vegetarians, which is another cool option if your date has that added dietary consideration. Something such as chana masala or sagg paneer. Likewise, there are also great gluten free desserts. Indian restaurants will often serve a mango or coconut flavored ice cream, which, again, is much better than a slice of cake.
Finally, don't forget to consider a vegan restaurant. These restaurants will serve all sorts of non-gluten dishes—everything from sandwiches made with sprouted breads (gluten free) to lentil soups and designer salads. And because these restaurants cater to people who are not inclined to eat dairy nor other animal products, the servers are quite aware of food sensitivities, so they will be able to tell you if a dish has soy in the sauce or base, or if there is any gluten in the pasta or bread, or if you will be served gluten-free breads and pastas.
