Locate Special Diet is LIVE!

It’s finally here. After a year and a half of work and research, the Locate Special Diet website is live. Oh… it feels so good to type those words. Let me tell you a little bit about my baby…

Locate Special Diet helps people find local businesses that cater to a gluten-free, vegetarian, or organic lifestyle. 

The database currently includes approximately 30,000 businesses in over 27 U.S. cities. Users can browse local restaurants and grocery stores by location, dietary preference and type of food. There is also a section to filter places that offer gluten-free, vegetarian or organic drinks. Austin is currently the only city with the largest drinks database, and it includes places to get smoothies, juices or even gluten-free beer.

Don’t see your favorite local business in the database? Users can submit businesses to Locate Special Diet and after they are approved by our team, we will add them in. This includes restaurants, grocery stores and drinks for any city. Our team is also furiously working to extend the current database to reach others looking to find places that cater to their special diet lifestyle.

I thought I would share some of my Favorite Things About Locate Special Diet.

Tuesday Treasures: Pictures of California + a Giveaway

We just got back from a fabulous trip in San Francisco, Napa Valley and Sonoma. I’ve always wanted to visit wine country so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do so. Napa and Sonoma were my favorite part of the trip. The scenery is breath taking and the drinking wine part was fun too. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip. [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday: Amy’s Carob Chip Cookies

Recently, I tested a carob chip cookie recipe for my dear bloggy friend, Amy Green, of Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free. She is about to release her first cookbook in January 2011 called: Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free, 120 Easy & Delicious Meals You Can Make in 20 Minutes or Less.

These cookies were amazing. I suggest you pre-order her book now!

Wordless Wednesday: Taco Deli

My favorite taco at Taco Deli: Thunder Heart Bison Picadillo. Locally sourced bison seasoned with roasted garlic, tomato, caramelized onion, melted jack cheese and jalapeño. Topped with fresh cilantro and onions. Heaven in a corn tortilla.

I hear one of their specials today (10/6/10) is a locally sourced pork belly (Richardson Farms), topped with fresh avocado, onion and cilantro. Oh man, does that sound tasty?

Update: Specify “gluten allergy” when ordering to prevent your corn tortilla from being grilled on the same tortilla press as flour.
