I had this delicious breakfast at the teatree cafe in the Danforth (salad, black bean burger, scrambled eggs, and toast). I also had dessert (pictured below), because who doesn't want dessert after breakfast?
I don't recommend soy milk, as a rule, but it's the only milk alternative that comes in smaller packaging and with a gluten-free guarantee These options allow me to bring a breakfast that won't spoil if I don't end up eating it.
I was pretty excited about these new soups, available at Independent! They are reasonably priced, vegetarian, easy to pack, and gluten-free. I loved the split pea soup and I disliked the thai coconut.
This dinner was a hit with my hosts! They had offered to order a pizza when I arrived, but I didn't want them wait on a late dinner. I told them I'd be bringing food with me, which I would be happy to share if they decided to wait. It doesn't take more than 30 or 40 minutes to cut up all vegetables, top the pizzas, and throw them in the oven. It feels good to bring food with me when I travel because I know it can be daunting to feed a person with so many dietary restrictions.
Dinner (on Second Day of Stay) at Riz Restaurant
I love this restaurant because the food is delicious and reasonably priced, but also because every gluten-free dish comes to the table on a plate that says 'Gluten-Free' right on it! I should have taken a picture, but I forgot because I was hungry and excited about eating. Anyway, it's a big comfort to know that miscommunication between serving and kitchen staff is dramatically reduced by a plate that tells everyone it needs to be gluten-free!
