The March 25th issue of “All You” had an article on “Eat well, gluten free” with a short paragraph on celiac disease, & 2 recipes - nice to see the awareness in some of the more major magazines.
If you’re looking for gluten free pita bread then check on the site glutenfreepitas.com from GFL Foods in New York. The price is $9 a bag with 6 pitas in a bag plus shipping. Against the grain rolls can be found at Nature’s Best - I like the pumpernickel the best. They also carry the Vermont Country rolls from the same company. You can now find Canyon Bakehouse hamburger buns locally too - check New Life also for their new products. Their gluten free products are located throughout the store & in the freezer section - if unsure just ask for help in either store.

CBS has been showing their public service message with Pauley Perrette from the TV show NCIS discussing celiac disease - a big thanks to CBS & Ms Perrette for helping to raise awareness.
I found Snyder’s gluten free pretzel sticks at the north side Wal-Mart in the snack aisle - look carefully among the choices - it is clearly marked on the front of the package.
Have a wonderful Spring & Easter season.
