Being new to the “Zipsterhood,” I wasn’t sure how this car sharing would all play out, but becoming a member and picking up the car was a piece of (gluten-free) cake! Literally, you can be sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle in 4 simple steps:
1) Join Zipcar.
2) Reserve a car.
3) Unlock the door (with your Zipcar card).
You can drive by the hour or the day, with gas, insurance and up to 200 km a day included. Best of all, there was a Zipcar location two blocks away from our house. Off we went on a gluten-free shopping spree to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington!
Zipcar, Organic Works Bakery, Lettuce Love Cafe and Kelly’s XO Bake Shoppe are all sponsors of #GFG2014!

A trip to the Gluten Free Garage just isn’t complete without stopping by the Hero Burgers food truck for the best poutine this side of Papineau. Our favourite corner spot for gluten-free (and hormone- and antibiotic-free) burgers and buns, HB has our carnivorous cravings covered all over town. Thanks to this short-order saviour, there are plenty of GF options to choose from, but note that not all locations offer the gluten-free poutine—made in a dedicated fryer with trans-fat-free canola oil—so be sure to ask before ordering (the Colossus and Yonge & Shephard restaurants have them). We’re purists when it comes to poutine so we stick with the traditional dish, but for the more adventurous, Hero Burgers serves up four different flavours: beef, mushroom, garden and Caesar.
