Expecting too much?

I think a gluten-free and dairy-free mac & cheese
is too much to ask for. I usually enjoy Amy's frozen
frozen entrees, but this one was an exception. I
did not enjoy the soy cheese mac & cheese at all but
I don't think it was Amy's fault. I have yet to find
a good dairy-free cheese. Most of them just taste
funky. If anyone knows a good gluten and dairy
free mac & cheese, I would love to hear about it!

Great Mexican Food in Solano Beach

From a reader:

"I live in Solana Beach and I happen to live right down the street from a great Mexican place called Tony's Jacal. Recently I was diagnosed with Celiac disease, but much to my surprise, Tony's Jacal was able to do several items gluten free. If you tell them you have a "wheat allergy" they will whisk away your chips and bring you new ones that are fried in fresh oil, and I have eaten both their carnitas plates and shrimp fajitas (with corn tortillas) and haven't been sick."

My new fave GF cereal

I bought Mesa Sunrise from Nature's Path after loving their delicious and addictive honey-sweetened corn flakes. This cereal is organic and gluten-free and contains flax and amaranth. It tastes really good and is good for you with 3 grams of protein and fiber in each serving. I also like the ecopac packaging because you get more cereal in the bag and there's no unnecessary cardboard. I bought Mesa Sunrise at Wholefoods for about $6/bag (one bag = a lot more than a box).
