Gluten free diets, are in short, eating flour free, but it is more complex than that as I understand it. Some people may think its a food-trend that these products and diet regimes are increasing in numbers but many people actually have to live this way out of necessity (and some by choice).
The wannabe-Italian in me is forever grateful that I have no such food allergies (to date) and can basically eat what I want. If I had to give up pasta, or cereal or cookies or cakes, I have no idea what I would do – again, I’m grateful that I live allergy free. But if I ever come to a day where gluten must be cut from my diet, then I’d probably start with some blogs online for inspiration (and support) – like this one….
My Blog or Bust Share #25 is Gluten Free Vancouver – in support of my food-challenged friends and readers. This local gluten-free lifestyle blog is handy resource! Hosted by Andrea and Robyn – two sisters that have been living gluten free in Vancouver since 2005. They share their adventures, challenges, and gluten free discoveries in their blog.
The sisters have organized their site with smart sections including eat, dine, drink, or shop gluten free. After poking around on the site, they have really done a great job sharing restaurants and retailers (even IKEA!) that offer gluten free products in Vancouver.
