Wendy’s updates gluten-free menu

March 1st, 2010 by Kimberly Bouldin


Wendy’s has always been good about listing a list of their products on their website that are gluten-free. This list has just been updated as of February 2010. Please pay special attention as it appears that some of the salads have been removed from the list.

Items that are no longer on the gluten-free list (it is not clear whether these items are no longer offered or if they have changed gluten-free status due to suppliers or recipe changes.) (more…)

Where can I buy gluten free food in San Francisco?

March 1st, 2010 by Amy Fothergill

A lot has changed in the past few years for gluten free eaters. It’s one of the fastest growing markets. According to Foodnavigator.com, this market has grown at an average rate of 28% since 2004. Sales are estimated to be at $2.6 billion by 2012. Wow.

What does this mean for you? When companies review trends and where grocery dollars are being spent, that’s where their research and development is focused. They want a piece of the “gluten free” pie. The good news for the consumer is that there will be more and more products available in more stores. (more…)

This is a recipe that I love to make, especially when it’s a little chilly outside. This recipe as written serves 4, but it can be doubled to serve 8. It has hominy in it, which are delicious starchy balls of corn grits. Somewhere between a soup and a stew, this recipe is fast and easy and gluten free, and the smell of the chili powders and cumin is absolutely fantastic!! (more…)

Jenny McCarthy, actress, author, and biomedical Autism treatment activist is featured in a TIME Magazine article this week, The Autism Vaccine Debate: Who’s Afraid of Jenny McCarthy?

Gluten Free Recipe: Meat Free Monday Tacos

March 1st, 2010 by Kaitlin Fleming

I’ve found that the crucial detail to remember is that it important to cook the tofu in very flavorful sauces and seasonings. Tofu absorbs whatever flavor you cook it in.

Tacos are one of my favorites foods that can be made gluten free and vegetarian very easily. I use corn tortillas over the gluten free ones you can find because I find they taste better and always make sure your sauces are gluten free. (more…)

Whenever asked what product is thought to be missing from the thousands of available gluten-free products, my number one response is always gluten-free pita bread. In my 13 years on the gluten-free diet finding out about GFL Foods, Inc. gluten-free pita bread made my diagnosis. Gluten-free pita bread is one product that this Examiner has truly missed and is thrilled it has become available in the gluten-free market.

Rami Aharon, owner of GFL Foods, Inc., set out to create a gluten-free pita when his son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. After several attempts, they finally created what they considered to be the ‘best ever gluten-free pita’ and this Examiner agrees. (more…)
