Does anyone know if I can buy gluten free flour from safeway?



Carly,
It probably depends on where you are. Near me (Natomas area in Sacramento, CA) the Safeway has a small gluten-free section, that I seem to remember had gluten-free flour. The Ralphs has a better selection, so I shop there mostly.

If you post where you are at, there will probably be someone who can recommend places to shop.

This one was just boneheaded -

On my birthday last November, I happened to stop at Whole Foods. I noticed one of their gluten-free Carrot Cakes, and got all excited. I decided to treat myself. I needed to stop by Raleys anyway, and while there, looked at a can of frosting. Saw nothing wrong with the ingredients, then noticed another brand was on sale, so I grabbed the on sale one.

After dinner I sliced a few slices, and layered on the cream cheese frosting. 40 minutes later, I was hurting. Doh! I never checked the second can. Silly me.

Hi! I'm just planning a trip to Peru now. When you hiked Machu Picchu, did you go with a tour group? If so, were they able to accomodate the gluten-free diet and would you recommend them?

Thanks!

To hike the Inka trail, you are required to use a guide service. You can not hike the inka trail on your own. Their are other hikes, but on the famous inka trail, you must use a guide. We didn't use a tour group fro most of our trip, but did for that section.

We went with Mayuc Cusco, and they did a great job with the Gluten Free thing. I spoke with them several times ahead of time, and they were great.

We go to Cold Stone Creamery. Tell them you have allergies, they will get a clean tray to put over the cold stone, and they will get a clean scoop. None of their flavors have added things (you then tell them what you want mixed in to get your custom flavor), so there shouldn't be any gluten in the bucket of ice cream.



So of the flavors at cold stone DO have gluten in them! In the bucket of ice cream. I've asked before, and been given a list of allergens in both the ice creams and the mix-ins.
