There are still so many gluten free items to discover in the Bay Area. I don’t have enough time to go everywhere and I also have no room in my body to eat all of them! I don’t want to follow the flow and besides I want to control my desires to taste new things because usually they are high in sugar level…

I also like to find new things spontaneously instead of going exactly to find what was I looking for… it’s totally different type of joy for me.. It was something like that when I was in Marina the other day. Continue reading


Gluten free dining in LA

It was my second time in LA this year. I think this is one of the best places to eat gluten free outside and inside. The options are huge.. The Sensitive Bakery, Pizza Fusion, Whole Foods, Outback Steakhouse are the first things coming to my mind.

Whole Foods was way bigger than the one here in Berkeley. And the gluten free options were much more than here. I couldn’t try so many new brands but I enjoyed just looking how brands can be creative while thinking gluten free items. The other thing is the Authentic Foods’ options were available in Whole Foods where here I only find them in a local bakery. I think I can live easily in LA!.. I envy people in LA who are gluten free! but no complains! since my experience in Turkey is still way limited than here!

So my best place was Pizza Fusion in Hollywood. I liked there thin crust made by themselves with bean flour and other ingredients. I liked their veggie pizza with mushrooms, zucchini, peppers and artichoke hearts… They even had gluten free beer in their menu. So if you are around there just go and have a great meal with no worries for your allergies! their eco-friendly environment is also impressing but that also makes them casual which I liked..

Here is the picture of the pizza…


Los Cabos

First summer away from my country was the toughest experience in this whole year.

Summer means sun, sea and a sunburned skin color! none of them were with me until August. It was hard to resist.. seeing all the pictures in Facebook, people are going to the beaches where actually you can sunbath unlike fake Californian beaches where you get chilly.So we wanted to arrange a vacation where we can just have summer and that’s it…

Mexico is one of the places in our top ten list of countries to go. So we picked up Los Cabos for our destination.

As a celiac person I wanted to choose a place where I can easily find something to eat. And as a person who loves Mexican food I thought there is going to be no problem except Spanish 🙂

We chose Hilton Los Cabos to stay for six nights. I loved the hotel and people who work there. I found not only something eat but instead I ate one of the most amazing dishes I have never tasted. Continue reading
