i went to whole foods the other day and found some food for life brown rice wraps. they were decent enough to give me the desired wrap experience, although nothing i would really get super excited about.

i also tried out some whole foods gluten free bread. they have a whole baked good section near the bakery that could probably eat up my whole paycheck.

anyway, staying away from the sweet stuff because i actually find that pretty easy to make myself, i picked up some sundried tomato bread and another one called prairie bread.
they weren't bad. they did have a strange taste to them which i can't indentify but seems to be less pronounced if you toast it - ALOT. the texture was decent. they both have dairy in them. i still like the sticklings stuff and the st lawrence market stuff best.

i ate at bar one on queen street near shaw after one of my openings recently. and the waitress although not super savvy about gluten, seemed to understand that it was important to talk to the chef about what he put in the food as well as she was the one who mentioned that gluten is not just in flour and then i went on a tirade about soya sauce. anyway, i had a steak. it was pretty yummy, except that i had a lumbar puncture earlier in the day and my post spinal tap headache that i didn't know was going to happen started to kick in. oh, sorry, tangent. anyway, most of the stuff was not really going to work for me but at least i wasn't stuck with the salad.

a recent candida dieter in the family has been a blessing in disguise. i am slowly gaining an alliance. muhahhaha
