One hot day in the city, this little girl went to Live Market in Liberty Village.
Little sister to Live Organic Food Bar on Dupont, the bright Liberty Village eatery is part cafe and part grab ‘n go, serving prepared items (salads, wraps, etc), food you can order at the counter (bowls, burritos, etc), bottles of fresh pressed juices, gourmet coffee and a selection of artisanal products—all vegan, organic and most importantly gluten free!
The girls took a seat while mama browsed.
Wrapper’s delight! We bought Live’s flax and corn tortillas for our breakfast burritos: scrambled egg and cheese with avocado.
Ezra’s Pound teamed up with Live to bring the best espresso in the city to Liberty Village.
Lily refreshed with naturally sparkling Tonica Kombucha. She’s mad for mango passion!
We ran out to our favourite local grocery store this week to pick up a few things. Look who’s here!
Fiesta Farms is literally a gluten-free fiesta! Besides the incredible whole foods and fresh organic produce, the selection of gluten-free fare is something to party about. Here are just a few of our fave GF products available at Toronto’s largest independently owned grocery store.
Raw, organic, gluten-free snacks from Nud Fud. (Goji Energy dipped in peanut butter rocks our world!)
A variety of delectable, nutritionally dense salad dressings from RawFoodz.
Saigon Soul Foods‘ crunchy spring rolls, best accompanied by their tangy roasted garlic plum sauce.
And what’s a fiesta without Neal Brothers‘ savoury salsas and tortillas?
We are double happy to have Fiesta Farms and Neal Brothers as sponsors of the Gluten Free Garage!
We baked these banana chocolate chip muffins today with JK Gourmet’s almond flour muffin mix. They were amazingly moist and, I’m going to use a word here I don’t use too often, scrumptious! We were off to The Mike Chalut Show on 103.9’s Proud FM, gluten-free goods in hand.
Lily, aka the GFG muse, in-studio for her radio debut with the handsome Mr. “Love Your Guts.”
We felt kind of bad that we didn’t bring Mike his favourite— poutine—but he was thrilled with his muffin and GFG bag. Tune in to Foodie Friday on 103.9 Pride FM!
We’re happy to have JK Gourmet as a sponsor of the Gluten Free Garage! They sample like crazy at the event so don’t forget to hit up their table!
We picked up this bag of organic gluten-free goodness at our favourite neighbourhood grocery store Fiesta Farms. But we had no intention of eating it for breakfast.
Instead we made a delicious juicy crisp with apples and raspberries!
Why didn’t we think of this sooner?! For the recipe, click here.
We’re happy to have Lotus Fine Foods as a sponsor of the Gluten Free Garage! They’ll be exhibiting their nutritious quinoa granola at the Neal Brothers table.
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe…
And the winner is…Chippity Chocolate Chip! Ever since we discovered Gaga for Gluten-Free’s yummy allergen-friendly cookies, the glass has been half full.
We’re happy to have Gaga for Gluten-Free as a sponsor of the Gluten Free Garage! We hope they’ll be sampling all three varieties of their melt-in-your-mouth cookies!
