In Topic: What's Your Favorite Gluten Free Restaurant?

24 April 2015 - 12:01 PM

I generally only eat at 100% gluten-free places. Thus to my delight I have a few options where I live. I also came across two on my recent vacation. 


Minnesota (St Paul)

As Fenrir mentioned there is an awesome gluten-free brewery taproom. On Fridays Burning Brothers has gluten free foods (foodtrucks /carts) at the taproom.  You know its gluten free if it is allowed in the facility. They worked with the vendors to get them in.


Minnesota (Minneapolis)

A 100% gluten free restaurant just opened a few months ago in Minneapolis. The Sassy Spoon has amazing and healthy choices. The owner had a food truck and changed over to a restaurant. She came from a nutritionist background and makes amazing delicious meals. Just typing this makes me want to go there for dinner. Mmmm. I think I will and for brunch tomorrow too. Even if I could eat gluten and had more choices, I would be eating at the Sassy Spoon as a first choice.


Minnesota (Lino Lakes)

There also is Paleo's, I have yet to go, but when I checked with them last fall, it was a 100% gluten free restaurant. If anyone goes let me know what you think.

Hawaii / Maui (Lahaina)

The Maui Sugar Shop organic/Gluten free Bakery - Love this place and still dreaming about the chocolate dipped macaroons. This place is hidden, but worth the effort to find.  The owners are great people too.


Hawaii / Maui (Kihei)

Maui has the Maui Brick oven (100% gluten free)  - Don't let the strip mall location fool you, they do it right.

In Topic: Celiac Disease And Mental Disorientation And/or Vertigo?

21 April 2015 - 01:08 PM

St Clair, YES!  I had a very similar experience. A very unnerving and surreal experience! If someone described the symptoms I would believe they were having a stroke. I had also experienced vertigo and was seeing doctors for it just prior to being DX'd with Celiac. Prior to going gluten free I used to have migraines at least about a third of the days during the month. Since going gluten free I can count on one hand how many migraines I have had (It is coming up on four years).


Just remember to enjoy life and don't let living gluten free make your world small.  I'm still working at it.  It gets easier as time goes by. So much easier! 



In Topic: Gluten Free Beers-- Reviews

03 April 2015 - 01:11 PM

Minnesota has a 100% gluten free dedicated brewery called Burning Brothers Brewing.  They currently have one commercial canned beer/ale (Pyro) that is available in MN (and maybe in WI and IA). If you are lucky enough to be in the Twin Cities you can visit the taproom which has a larger selection.


Top three if I stop at my local store

Burning Brothers  (Pyro)  ( I drink the coffee and stout in the taproom)

Glutenberg American pale (Red can) or  IPA (Green can *** may be too hoppy for those that drank miller/bud)

New Planet Pale Ale   (I'm surprised they panned New Planets Pale ale).


Easier to find (bar) and drink in volume (if that's your thing)




I won't touch gluten reduced beers (Omission, etc...)
