How much do you spend on Gluten Free foods?

I track this, supposedly for tax reasons, but I'm a bit of a laggard when it comes to producing visuals.

Our friends at Gluten Free Edmonton have blogged about their expenditures - how much, where and on what specific items.

You can check out all their shopping at their detailed blog post (with charts & graphs oh My!) here!

Gluten Free Dining at Hundred Bar & Kitchen

The Edmonton chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) hosted a supper for members with Chef Cowan at the Century Group's Hundred Bar & Kitchen on June 7th.

What a delicious TREAT! Every course a delight, no one left hungry, and there were leftovers people politely haggled over. ;-P

My friends over at Gluten Free Edmonton did a great job documenting the events of the evening, so I'll let you read their account in their post.

The link for the event details: 2014 Pancake Breakfast, and it's going to be one of the CCA's best yet!

Pancakes, sausage patties, coffee, juice and more – all gluten free.  The gluten free pancake breakfast held outside the Kinnikinnick Store - we shut down the street! It is always a popular family event attended by 100′s of people supporting the Celiac Community.  Please support our great sponsors, because without them, this event would not be possible.
