I am allergic to corn, where I live there is a pub that has a gluten free menu to pick from as well as their regular menu. There are not many gluten free bakeries, I buy "Robin Hood Gluten free all purpose flour" as everything is added & you use it like regular flour without having to add "Guar Gum" etc. it is in it.

There is no corn, as stated I am allergic to corn products.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Sounds like good eating. Other countries offer more gluten free options. I think more restaurants are serving gluten free. I went to a mom and pop restaurant this week and all sandwiches were available on GF bread and I also went to a GF bakery. Slowly GF is becoming more commonplace. Eat good and clean!!

I just wanted to share a couple of experiences I had while I was traveling in Victoria BC and Vancouver BC. I have to say that overall, gluten-free options are very easy to find in both places.

Victoria--Origin Bakery--dedicated gluten free bakery. They also have several products that are dairy free as well. They are open from Tuesday-Saturday 7:30-5:30 and have two locations. I visited the Pandora Street location very early in the morning. I bought a loaf of their oat bread, which had just come out of the oven and it was still warm. It was HEAVENLY. Soft, dark brown bread with just a hint of sweetness. I also bought a granola bar and cookies. The granola bar was fantastic, the cookies were just "OK".

Il Covo--Italian restaurant. Most of their pasta dishes can substituted with a gluten-free version. I didn't ask what the gluten-free pasta was made with, but it tasted like corn and my dish was very good. There are also plenty of gluten-free options and most of the menus I looked at will remind folks with allergies to ask about additional ingredients that are not listed.

Vancouver

Smak--100% Gluten-Free cafe. I had a green curry and a lovely green salad. Their bread (including croutons) is sourced from a bakery called Lemonade Gluten-Free Bakery, which is how I found Smak. They have fantastic coffee drinks and delicious juices and smoothies.

La Brasserie--French/German bistro--Many, many GF options and the waitstaff seem to be well-educated about cross contamination
