Celiac.com 10/30/2017 - Say what you will about the gluten-free food craze, but one of the benefits of the popularity of gluten-free food is that it now shows up in what would have previously been some very strange, or in this case, remote places.
Like a food truck in Elko, Nevada. The Sisters Food Truck, owned by Jennifer Saxton of Spring Creek, opened for business this summer, and she can often be found at the Conoco station on Idaho Street. Saxton is one of six food trucks licensed to do business in Elko.
For Saxton, rich colors are key to her presentation, and to her customers' satisfaction. She believes strongly in "eating the rainbow," and her customers have been impressed enough for her to build a strong clientele of repeat customers.
Nutrition is every bit as important as the appearance for Saxton. Her son, Jace, has type 1 diabetes and Celiac disease.
The nutritious meals she began preparing for Jace at home have inspired her food truck's gluten-free menu offerings.
Saxton is looking to expand into to food preparation for people with special dietary needs. Winters are cold in Elko, so when temperatures plummet, Saxton plans to prepare orders in her food truck's commercial kitchen, and to deliver them in her pickup.
