Gluten Free Cakes

I have heard from several people now that these cakes and cupcakes a really good. They come in lots of flavors and are great for a party or catered event.

Cakes vary from $55-$65 each. Cupcakes are available as a dozen or a pack of 24 bites.

Waters Fine Catering - To Go

I went to Waters Fine Catering's Solana Beach location yesterday for lunch. They have a really nice selection of freshly made food. It was a Wednesday, so they had a selection of gluten-free pizzas. There are also various other safe foods, such as salmon, rice, vegetables etc. The gluten-free pizza was very good and very reasonably priced - only $6.50 for a personal size pizza. If you choose to eat at the place (they have about 5 tables inside and 2 outside), then they will heat your food for you. They have different gluten-free selections on different days, so check their website, which is updated daily with the day's menu.

They have two locations - one in Solana Beach and one in San Diego. I have not been to the San Diego location yet.

Brick Oven Pizzeria

I went to Brick Oven Pizzeria the other day when I was in Poway. The people there are very friendly and welcoming and are used to lots of us gluten-free types coming in.

Their gluten free crust is a lot like regular delivery crust - like Pizza Hut's hand-tossed crust. The gluten free pizza comes in the medium size only, which feeds 2-3 people, depending on your hunger level. They have a nice variety of toppings as well. My only complaint is that I wish their interior seating area was larger and was a little more separated from the order counter. For those of us who don't live in Poway, we would eat the pizza there, and more atmosphere would be nice.

Sooooo good

Omigosh, these "cookies" are so good. They taste like coconut chocolate chip cookies. The bag contains three servings but be careful, as you may eat all three servings in one sitting without noticing.

They are gluten free and nut free and raw, for those into the raw movement.

One bag at Whole Foods La Jolla was $4.29. They didn't have this flavor in the Whole Foods in Hillcrest today - they did have other flavors though.

GF, nut-free granola bar

Nonuttin' granola bars are gluten free, nut free, dairy free and lots of other things "free" too! I was pleasantly surprised by the Nonuttin Double Chocolate Chunk granola bar I tried. It was pretty chewy and pretty chocolatey. I wish it had more than 2g of protein, but it is a pretty good snack for on-the-go.

I found it in Whole Foods in the GF section for $1.69.

As close to normal as you can get

Udi's Gluten Free bread is as close to regular bread as you can get. It is soft and flexible and can be eaten without being toasted! It's good for a sandwich or for anything else that you use bread for.

So far, I've found it in the Whole Foods in La Jolla (not the Hillcrest one) for $4.99. They have it in white sandwich bread and multigrain varieties. But if you see it, buy it because they sell fast!

UPDATE: Thanks to helpful readers, it seems that Wholefoods in Hillcrest DOES carry Udi's bread - they must have been out when I went in. Also, it is available at Healthy Creations in Encinitas (along with the Udi's brand pizza crust).

I think the lesson here is to call ahead before you go to make sure your chosen store has Udi's in stock.

Move over Glutino, UDI's has arrived!!!!
