  1. Wholly Tomato

    Just wanted to throw in my 2 gluten-free Cents. I ate at Wholly Tomato this past weekend. I found them on line and I couldn't resist the call of 'organic gluten-free fast food.' Man, was I pleased with this find. I don't make it to Denver much. But I'll be back just to eat here again. In fact I think I'll preorder a 1/2 doz. of those Garbanzo bean tortilla's to-go. So good! I appreciate Stephen's response above too. Every effort made, from the recipes to the presentation was sincere. The homemade rootbeer and peach lemonade were very tasty. I drooled over my gluten-free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie. My wrap was fantastic and my wife thought the Irish soda bread was the best gluten-free bread she'd ever had. I especially like the educational signs on the walls. I haven't had any food or beverages with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) for the last year (because I figured the Corn was genetically modified and Immune System supression was likely with all that sugar). My family thought I was going overboard but then they read the HFCS sign on the wall. While none of my reasons were up there, I learned something new and the fam. is happy to join me in the my "non-fruc" life style. There's something to be said about someone who's become Gluten Free. After cutting out wheat, they don't fear change anymore.
  2. Juliano's Raw In Santa Monica - Restaurant

    I ate there last year with my wife and some friends. It was our first raw meal, and we had a similar ordering experience, but knowing that it was all vegan we went for it. What a great dinner! Since then we've bought their 'uncook book' and use it a couple times a month. Whenever we have someone over for a raw meal I let them know that they will probably experience, what I like to call "Rapid Digestion." The tummy starts rumbling and you process your food rather quickly. It must be all the enzymes (that were never cooked out of the food) aiding in digestion. Raw meals are the only gluten-free meals that energize us, right after eating and through the following day. Our favorites are the fettucine alfredo and the nut loaf ('not' meatloaf). The desserts are fantastic. I made the coconut fudge cookies a few weeks ago and I was very pleased. Just this weekend I stopped in to see the newest Whole Foods, south of Denver, CO. They don't have as much gluten-free foods as my local WF but I was very suprized to see that they were preparing some Raw Vegan foods for eat-in and take out. I didn't tried them (because I was on my way to try Wholly Tomato - YUM! ) but the finished product looked like some of Juliano's recipes. I hope more WF's stores start doing that. I like the idea of eating out more.
