i went to Veg Food Fest and this is what i ate

(In order of appearance)

 

I eyed the cinnamon buns (who wouldn't?) and gobbled up a Supersonic cookie (and took a couple for the road).

First stop, Veg Food Fest: I can never be anywhere in the vicinity of Bunner’s and not eat/buy their cinnamon buns and Supersonic cookies.

 

Shockingly Healthy

These delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are Shockingly Healthy (made with uncontaminated oats, doily not included).

 

Green Zebra Kitchen's GF mac and "cheese" and kale salad with a couple of treats for later.

Green Zebra Kitchen delivers flavourful organic, vegan and gluten-free meals to your work or home. Like this one I had for lunch: sweet potato mac and “cheese” and kale salad  (with a couple of sweets thrown in for good measure).

 

Relieve tea from The Honest Leaf for my gluten-free girl when she has a sore tummy.

I was relieved to see The Honest Leaf. I bought a package of this tea for my gluten-free girl because she’s been having some tummy trouble. I’m a big fan of their Detox tea.

 

My 2 new gluten-free finds: Cheesauce from Raw Foodz (melt it over cauliflower and weep) and The Date Lady's caramel

My best new gluten-free product finds of the day: CheeSauce from Raw Foodz (melt it over cauliflower and weep) and The Date Lady‘s caramel sauce (squeeze it over ice cream and moan). Next to Raw Foodz was Nud Fud (I sense a theme here). If you haven’t dipped their Goji Energy crackers in peanut butter, seriously, what are you waiting for?

 

Every year I run into Marni Wasserman at Veg Food Fest and beg her to participate at the Gluten Free Garage. This year for the first time she is going be a vendor as well as a guest speaker! Marni's going to give you some fantastic gluten-free dinner ideas.

Every year I pay a visit to Marni Wasserman at her booth and beg her to be a part of the Gluten Free Garage. This fall for the first time she is going be a vendor and a guest speaker! If you’re hungry for healthy, delicious gluten-free dinner ideas, don’t miss Marni’s afternoon workshop  at GFG.

 

We found what were looking for! Tori's pink donuts are a much-coveted baked good in our household!

After making (and eating) my way through Veg Food Fest, I finally found what I was looking for. These pink sprinkle donuts from Tori’s Bakeshop are a much-coveted gluten-free baked good in our household! The girls were about to get lucky.

 

MOST OF THESE VENDORS WILL BE AT THE GLUTEN FREE GARAGE ON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 9TH! SEE YOU THERE!

 

5 things making me happy this week

Some are gluten free, some have nothing to do with gluten at all.

Avocado goat cheese toast=GF toast, avocado, honey goat cheese, pepper, lime juice

With more than 6,000 toasts tagged, New York magazine calls it “the most annoying food on Instagram.” We call it delicious. Our avocado toast, made with Organic Works gluten-free quinoa and honey bread, is topped with honey goat cheese, hemp seeds, a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a pinch of black pepper.

 

Shopping up a storm at Canada's Gluten Free Marketplace.

Enjoying all the yummy gluten-free goodies we bought at Canada’s Gluten-Free Market (did we go overboard with the GFG branding?).

 

Feasting on Chinese food takeout from Riz! The General tao chicken was gone in a blink!

Feasting on gluten-free Chinese takeout from Riz on Bayview! I highly recommend the General Tao chicken.

Washing down the Chinese food with a cold sparkling glass of Thornbury Apple Cider—gluten free and made in Ontario! I picked it up at the LCBO. My official bevvy of summer 2014!
