Amazing GF buffet at the Four Seasons

The Four Seasons Aviara is now having a monthly gluten free buffet for $29. It is on the first Saturday of every month. The buffet includes an appetizer bar, a salad area, hot entrees, cold entrees and a fabulous dessert bar. EVERYTHING is gluten free (unless marked otherwise). When I went, there were just a couple of sandwiches that were marked as containing gluten, otherwise, everything else was gluten-free. The dessert bar must have had about twenty items on it ranging from flourless chocolate cake, to all kinds of cookies, to chocoloate-covered strawberries, to creme brulee and more! Go and bring your appetite, but not your thirst. A small bottle of coke will run you $5 with no refills!

Yummy hot GF breakfast cereal

I have missed my morning oatmeal since I became GF. I'm pretty lazy so the little packets of oatmeal that just require adding water and microwaving are perfect for me. I found eco-planet's 7 Whole Grains Hot Cereal in Apple Cinnamon flavor at Whole Foods the other day and I am so glad I did. It tastes really good and is good for you. Unlike traditional pre-packaged oatmeal, it does not have too much sugar, only about 8g per serving and it has fiber and lots of other good things.

A box with 6 packets cost $5.69 at Whole Foods. You can order it online at various stores but the online prices seemed the same as Whole Foods or more expensive!

It also comes in original and Brown Sugar Maple varieties.

UPDATE: I was in Whole Foods in Hillcrest yesterday and could not find any of this great cereal - I couldn't even find the space on the shelf where it should be - I'm really hoping they haven't stopped carrying it!
