Eating in Kansas City, MO

It has been a while since I've been able to blog, and it seems like in that time, I have heard of some great new resources and found out some more people I know may be gluten free.   I will try to post the resources as I can.

I'm in Kansas City right now at a NAFSA professional conference, and overall I have to say that it has been surprisingly easy to eat well.  I found a place in the Denver Airport that served rice bowls, and here I have gone to this great market near the Convention Center that has a salad bar.

The only glitches so far are:
1) I ate the seasoned potatoes at breakfast this morning before I thought to ask if they had wheat on them.  They did, but luckily I haven't felt any strong negative consequences today.  I did make sure to take a probiotic, so perhaps that helped.

2) At the KCISS reception tonight, I could only eat one of the appetizers they had at the buffet (some sort of meat kabobs).  I'm guessing that may be a problem the entire conference since caterers often have wheaty appetizers large group events.

Stay tuned!


  1. Are you near the Airport? There are 2 places with very good GF pizza, not far from the airport in Parkville. One is All Star Pizza & Pub. Owner's wife is Celiac & the staff is very well trained. They also have GF mac & cheese! Their pizza is more of a modern style thin crust pizza. The other is in downtown Parkville MO (historic old town)- Stone Canyon Pizza. Delish traditional pizza. Well trained staff too.
    Good luck the rest of your conference. I will check back to see if you need any other suggestions to eat!

  2. Dear KCPC,

    Thanks so much for your comments! I haven't had a chance to get back in here for quite a while, so I'm sorry for the delayed response!

    I had a lovely time in KC. I didn't get to the pizza place, but we did end up eating some GF pizza from a place called SPIN! near our hotel.

    Thanks, again, it was very fun to see your post and know that there is another gf person out there looking out for others like us.

    Take care,
