Morning Smoothie

Morning Smoothie

Morning Smoothie – filled with nutritious ingredients. Taken on Instagram.

I have been needing a mix-up of my morning breakfast routine. Eggs, toast and fruit or gluten-free oatmeal, can get old after a while. A smoothie is my answer, as of lately. It’s healthy, fast, fresh and fills you up!

We have been so busy lately! In between events (Whew! SXSW wore me out!), work and wedding planning; I feel like I haven’t been able to take a breather and relax 100%. Speaking of wedding planning, things are moving along nicely. I actually went wedding dress shopping recently and found “the ONE” in Austin at a cute local boutique. It feels real that it’s getting close and I’m thrilled.

Locate Special Diet will be making an appearance at a couple events around Texas soon. Make sure and check out the Texas VegFest coming up April 6, as well as the Dallas Mavericks Celiac Awareness Event brought to you by the good folks over at Gluten-Free Calendar. I’ll be heading north to Dallas, April 12th to attend the event. I hope to see you there!

Also, I’d like to give a shout-out to the hilarious - April Peveteaux - who recently had a book signing for her new book coming out titled ~ Gluten is my Bitch (available for pre-order on Amazon). Thanks for mentioning our mobile app, Locate Special Diet, on your SXSW panel April!

    I was shocked to find out that Curras’ corn tortillas now have wheat flour in them. I know this is a trend — but Curras? Has anyone done a survey of other Mexican food establishments to know which also have embraced this abominable assault on our health? I really am astounded with the gluten free trend growing as it is, that a restaurant would consciously adulterate a traditionally gluten free food.

    • Hi Janet! I too find it strange that restaurants would want to add wheat flour to already gluten-free corn tortillas. I’m assuming it’s because they are wanting the tortilla to be more stable and/or larger. Regardless, it’s a shame. I believe there are a couple more places in Austin that do this. I’ll look into it and email you at the email you have provided. Thanks for reaching out to us – Jessica

  2. I think the recipe which you had shared would be the best breakfast.
