Things I’m Loving, 1st Edition

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I had a wonderful time with my family and fiancé in Jackson, Wyoming. We visited for yet another white Christmas and it was beautiful. Filled with laughter, snowboarding, eating, drinking and more. I can’t wait to go back (for our wedding)!

If you have never been to Jackson, you must visit! It’s extremely gluten-free friendly, and has a wonderful foodie scene. If you visit, download my free mobile app and find GF options near you. Filter by type of food, view menus, tips and more. Search LOCATE SPECIAL DIET in the iTunes and Android marketplace. If you aren’t visiting Jackson anytime soon, no worries, Locate Special Diet is also in 45 other U.S. cities and expanding very soon.

Back to my vacation…

It was lovely. I snowboarded everyday (my favorite sport), and was able to purchase my first board, boot and bindings (Hello, Burton FeelGood Flying V)!

So many great powder days! 

I came up with the idea to do a series called “Things I’m Loving” while flying home to Austin. Everyday, I come across so many interesting articles, blog posts, recipes, photographs, products, etc, that I thought would be great to share on here. Most of the time I’ll share these finds on Facebook and Twitter but thought you all might enjoy seeing these on occasion as well.

If you have come across a new “gluten-free find”, share it in the comment section. ATX Gluten-Free has grown to be a wonderful community and I’m thankful for that. Being gluten-free can suck sometimes, let’s be honest. I’m also dairy-free now which can also be a pain in the a**. We’re here to help, and your input is always welcome. Leave some comments below and share your favorites with other readers!

  4. My wife has been gluten-free for about 7 years now (her main wheat symptoms were/are migraines), and I’m joining her as more-or-less an experiment. Being that I’m new to it all, I’m taking baby steps and trying a lot of different things.

    Your mention of Thundercloud Subs (not a fan personally) brought to mind the fact that Jimmy John’s Subs offers the Unwich, which is any of their subs using iceberg lettuce wrap instead of a bun. I personally enjoy it, but YMMV.

    Finally, I’m going to ask my wife to publish the recipe she came up with a few months ago for a gluten-free waffle/pancake mix. It was the first gluten-free waffle mix that I *really* enjoyed. Her first B.S. was in Family & Consumer Sciences (AKA, “Home Ec.”) whereas her second B.S. was in Nursing, and she’s had a long-standing interest in nutrition. The closest I come to any of that is having worked for the IT department of Whole Foods corporate for 5 years.

    Anyway – thanks for the site. I’ve bookmarked and I’ll be trying out the app.
