The new Live in Liberty Village

One hot day in the city, this little girl went to Live Market in Liberty Village.

 

And the sign said...

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 were feeling the heat.

The girls took a seat while mama browsed.

 

It made our day that Augie's Gourmet Ice Pops were in the freezer. Juiciest popsicles ever!

Augie’s Gourmet Ice Pops are in the house! Some other faves include: Sweets from the Earth frozen cookie dough, Bunner’s Supersonic cookie, Stasis Preserves, RawFoodz salad dressing and Chocosol dark chocolate.

 

These wraps are a game changer!

Wrapper’s delight! We bought Live’s flax and corn tortillas for our breakfast burritos: scrambled egg and cheese with avocado.

love your gluten-free guts

We baked these

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, made her radio debut with Mike Chalut on 103.9 Proud FM.

We felt bad we didn't bring Mike's favourite— poutines—but he was thrilled with his muffin and his GFG bag.

quinoa gets crisp

We picked up this bag full of gluten-free goodness at Fiesta Farms.

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.

 

We took this recipe for crisp off of the Lotus website.

Instead we made a delicious juicy crisp with apples and raspberries!

 

And we dug right in!

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.
