There were tables set up all over the store with samples, and Zach who writes the Gluten Free Raleigh blog had an information table, as well as the Cel-Kids group. I met some neat folks, and enjoyed hearing everyone's stories. Some recently diagnosed, some diagnosed for quite some time.
One of the things that was really nice about them having food samples was that you could try a variety of the Whole Foods brand GF items. It would be pretty expensive to purchase all the different products individually. Surprisingly, though, I realized that I have already tried a majority of them!
Pretty much everything from the Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse is delicious. I got to meet Lee Tobin, the head baker and founding baker of the Bakehouse, who was serving up delicious baked treats!
My personal WF Bakehouse favorites are: Sandwich Bread, Honey Oat Bread, Cheddar Biscuits, Blueberry Muffins, Molasses Ginger Cookies and Nutmeal Raisin Cookies!
I also met representatives from Rosie's Plate, and they had some amazing PITA BREAD to try, and I liked their trail mix a lot, too.
Trevor from Bella Monica Flatbread Company was there, who I have met before, and it was nice to talk with him a little while. (And the flatbread pizzas still taste great!)
It was just a great day all-around.
Why don't we do this every Saturday?? :)
