Giveaway! Triumph Dining Guides and Card Set

Hi everybody. We’re doing our first (and hopefully not last) giveaway here at Gluten Free Portland Oregon! Last week we did a review of the Triumph Dining Gluten-Free Guides, and now this week we’re going to give them away

Up for grabs are:

Triumph Dining Gluten-Free Guides

Triumph Dining Gluten-Free Cards

To make things more interesting, we’re going to give these away to three different people.

The Triumph Dining Gluten-Free Guide Giveaway:

What is up for grabs: The Essential Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide, The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide, and The Gluten-Free Restaurant Rescue Pack. The rescue pack is the set of cards in different languages.

Who will win: To enter, simply make a comment to this blog post. On it, we want you to answer two questions. One: Which of the items you would want most. Two: Why. There is no reason to write a novel, but we are really interested to see your answers! We aim to give people the item they would prefer. (I can only afford to ship to the US and Canada, so people from other countries please don’t enter. Sorry!)

What they will win: I have one set to split up, so there’s going to be three winners. One person will win The Essential Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide, another will win The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide, and a third will win The Gluten-Free Restaurant Rescue Pack.

When and how the winners will be chosen: The giveaway ends at midnight Pacific Time on Saturday, August 22. Winners will be chosen using We’ll keep generating numbers until a winner is picked for each item based on their stated preference.

Notification: Winners will be notified by email August 23 and will have until August 31 to get back to me. After that, their prize will be forfeited and awarded to someone else chosen with a number.

  1. I Would love a copy of the restaurant guide! I tend to stick with the same old places that I know I can trust, so this would be perfect!

    Awesome Giveaway! :)

  2. I would love to have a copy of the restaurant guide as well – I love traveling and eating out, and it sounds like this book would make it a lot easier!

  3. As a student on a tight budget, I prefer to save money by eating in. The gluten free grocery guide would come in handy when I need ingredients for a new recipe I want to make for myself and my boyfriend, who also has celiac.

  4. I would like The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide. It would make buying groceries for my husband, so much easier!

  5. I am newly diagnosed with Celiac disease so I need all the help I can get. Thank you.

  6. I would love to have the restaurant guide.

  7. The grocery guide would really be helpful to me.
    Thank you!

  8. I want the restaurant guide because my girlfriend is a vegan with too many food allergies to name. I’d love to be able to take her out to places I know she can enjoy and this would be an amazing help.

  9. I would love the grocery guide! As a relatively newly diagnosed Celiac my friends and family are very eager to figure out what they can feed me. It’d be great to have a book like this to show them or loan them and especially for me to take the grocery store on those days when I’m just too tired to properly think. I’m still at the point where going to the grocery store can be stressful and upsetting because it takes so long to find things I can eat,and even then,it’s not positive they won’t make me sick.

  10. I would love the gluten free grocery guide. I have a good friend that’s recently been diagnosed with celiac, but I don’t know what foods are safe for me to fix for dinner when she comes over. This would be a lifesaver.

    the grocery guide and the restaurant guide

  12. d.e. manning says:

    extremely helpful items that should definately be promoted!

  13. oo! prizes! i’d love the dining cards, because then I don’t have to be “that” person (as much) and know they have a reference in the kitchen so I would feel more comfortable dining out. Thanks!!

  14. beth britton says:

    This one’s for my mom.

  15. I would love to win
    this for my daugther and
    her husband, who is
    allergic to gluten.

  16. The Gluten-Free Restaurant Rescue Pack, please. I’d love to go to Europe, but the thought of trying to order gluten-free in a foreign-language restaurant terrifies me Thanks for the opportunity.

  17. I am really interested in the gf restaurant guide! My sister and I just recently became gluten free because of an allergy that we didn’t even know about. It’s so interesting how many people gluten affects! Props to Portland for being so aware.

  18. I would love the restaurant guide… 6 months into it I’ve gotten pretty good at navigating the labels and shelves in the store, but restaurants still scare the heck out of me, especially when I have to travel (which I do fairly often due to work). Usually I just end up living on apples/bananas/EnviroKids bars due to a few bad experiences that have left me afraid to go back to eating out unless I ABSOLUTELY know it’s safe. I’d also be down for the restaurant rescue pack, because one of the biggest problems I’ve had eating out is communicating my needs (especially if it’s in another language).

  19. I would LOVE to win the Restaurant Guide. As creator and executive producer for HypFoods, we are all about a hypoallergenic approach to food preparation, both in home kitchens and commercial. So knowing who else is responding to this vast need is important to us. As a start-up, we are working hard to contain our costs in our first year. Gluten Free is BIG. Thanks for the opportunity!

  20. Catherine says:

    I’d love a copy of the Restaurant Guide. I’d love to be able to support places that are catering to the GF community!

  21. I would love to win this for my 3 year son who is on a gluten free diet.

  22. Beverly H. says:

    I would love the Dining Cards. I already have the Restaurant Guide and Shopping Guide, received this week and find them very useful. I plan to travel soon and need the cards to communicate in different languages. I’ve heard good things about these cards.

  23. I would love a complete list of restaurants that offer Gluten Free menu selections in Portland so I can give dependable and current referrals to the visitors and locals that ask us in the Visitor Information Center. We make restaurant referrals everyday and are getting more requests for Gluten Free.

  24. Yay! Thank god there are lots of gluten-free options in Portland. It is easy buying gluten-free at the grocery stores (i.e. Trader Joe’s, New Seasons, and even Freddy’s) but I always get a bit unsure when I go out to eat at restaurants. That is why I would want to win The Essential Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide.

  25. i would pick the grocery guide….my son is allergic to wheat, eggs and peanuts! mayjor bummer. since i’m nursing – i have also eliminated these items from my diet. this is all new territory for me….so the grocery guide would be insanely helpful!!

  26. I would like The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide. I just found out I can’t have gluten anymore. I have to re-learn how to eat and shop! this would really help me out!

  27. kristina jones says:

    I would like the grocery guide to make shopping easier.

  28. Melissa O says:

    I was just diagnosed with Celiac this week, after 15 years of suffering! I am starting from scratch with shopping, cooking, and eating out. I find the entire thing to be extremely overwhelming, so when I heard about the cards I was thrilled! I would be happy to win any of them!

  29. I’d want the restaurant guide, so I could see which ones to eat in.

  30. Gluten Free Grocery Guide because I have Grave’s disease.

  31. I’d love to try the Restaurant Guide!

  32. It’s interesting to read the responses. Personally, I would like to win the grocery guide, because I’m hoping to discover some new products that I have overlooked in the past. In a restaurant, I usually ask about ingredients and possible substitutions, but it’s not practical to do that at the grocery store. Although I have to recommend going through New Seasons with one of their nutritionists. It was so helpful for me!

  33. Ed Nemmers says:

    “Gluten Free Grocery Guide”; I would like to watch my home food intake.

  34. I would like the Restaurant Guide as I’m often on the run, family and friends want to eat out and I’m the odd one in the group with my special needs for gluten free food.

  35. I just went Gluten-free, so I could really use this. Thanks for the giveaway!

  36. I would like the restaurant guide because I like to go out with friends and am sick of going to the same place every time. They are nice about it but I’m sure they would like some variety. Thanks!

  37. I would love to win the copy of the Restaurant Guide. I travel with my wife all the time who is gluten intolerant, and when she eats gluten she tends to get angry and yell at me. Would make my life a whole lot better being able to find gluten free places to eat at.

  38. Amy Tucker says:

    The Essential Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide would be my pick. I have most challenges ordering at restaraunts I often learn from trial and error, but would love to know what to expect in advance.

  39. I give advise to gluten free eaters thru Twitter all day and would love to better serve them by suggesting great restaurants. I’d love the Gluten Free Restaurant Guide.

    Thanks for doing this!

  40. I’d love to have you do a review for Udi’s Gluten Free Foods. Udi’s have the best darn bread in the market. It’s just like the old stuff we used to eat! Let me know by email if you are interested.

    I’d love to win the Reatuarant Guide so I can more effectively direct other gluten free diners thru Twitter.

    Gluten Free Product Ambassador
    Udi’s Gluten Free Foods

  41. I would choose The Essential Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide.

    Because we just found out that my 10 year old Nephew has a gluten alergy so this would be a great book to have when going out to dinner here in Portland.

  42. I want the grocery guide for my friend. Her kids are all gluten free.

  43. Imodium is my friend.

  44. I recently discovered my gluten sensitivity and could really use the help!

  45. I would like to win The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide for my friend who started going Gluten-free last month and is having a tough time with it.

  46. The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide :)

  47. Heather C says:

    I’d love The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide. I have found that if I avoid breads and things for a while, I tend to feel a lot better…and in an effort to feel a lot better in my ‘old age’ (it’s coming!), I thought it best to start at home. Thanks!

  48. like the restaurant guide ty

  49. Lily Kwan says:
