Gluten-Free Restaurants in Austin, Texas

Gluten-Free Eats in the ATX Hi everyone!  I made a list of our favorite gluten-free restaurants in Austin, Texas.  It’s really nice to live in a city with so many options! I’m super sensitive to cross-contamination so gluten friendly or gluten free-ish places didn’t really work for me.  But lately I’ve been impressed with how knowledgeable chefs and staff are and how easy it is to safely eat out.  And so many 100% gluten-free kitchens are popping up. Sometimes we’ve had to sit down with a manager and talk to them about food preparation and potential cross-contamination.  We had a great experience at many different restaurants around town that aren’t necessarily thought of as gluten-free restaurants. Whereas we probably ate at PF Chang’s in The...

The Weekly Menu Jan 30, 2017

Well it’s time for the weekly menu Jan 30 – Feb 5.   I need a lot of comfort food this week.   Of course, it is all gluten free, mostly non-GMO and organic… It has been tougher than usual for me to find gratitude these days with the world imploding.   But I will say that I’m grateful for people standing up for themselves and others and joining together to fight for what is right.   I’m grateful for knowing so many good, decent and strong people. I’m so grateful for my wonderful husband and that we found each other in this crazy life.   We had dinner and cocktails at South Congress Cafe to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary.  My steak and brussels...

The Weekly Menu Oct 24, 2016

Hi all!  Hope you are doing well. It’s already time for the weekly menu Oct 24!  We have a couple days off from cooking again this week.  Woohoo!   Last week we tried two more places offering gluten free food – Frank (artisan sausages served on a Udi’s bun with waffle fries from a dedicated fryer) and take out from Pho Thaison (Vietnamese Pho, starters, chef and house specials).   I’ll be adding them to my growing list of restaurants serving delicious gluten free food in Austin, Texas! Fun Stuff Coming Up Next week we have two interesting events planned.   We are going to see the screening of Tower, a documentary highlighting the witnesses, heroes and survivors of the first American mass school shooting at...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Nov 30

It’s time for the weekly menu Nov 30.  And like that we are heading into December! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. It’s been a little strange keeping track of time via these gluten free weekly menus, but they have been so good for reducing my stress and anxiety about what to make for dinner. We’ve come a long way with our food choices, too and had a lot of fun experimenting in the kitchen.  We joined the Austin based Wheatsville Food Co-Op as owners so I’m pretty excited about that – lots of gluten free and dairy free options, organic veggies and locally farmed food. I don’t think I mentioned that we also had dinner at District Kitchen + Cocktails...
