It’s not the first time Victoria’s ‘MomPreneur’ has been the focus of media attention! Benjamin’s Bites was ‘chosen’ as a BC brand worthy of Thrifty Foods support! See videos here and here!

The following was excerpted from Thrifty Foods, We Pick BC First – Benjamin’s Bites:


  • Debbie discovered her son, Benjamin, had multiple food allergies so she started making him his own cookies.
  • Benjamin’s Bites contain no gluten, eggs, soy, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds or sulphites.
  • She doesn’t have a background in baking, but her mom is an amazing cook, so it came naturally (there was more than one dessert at their house at all times).
  • Her cookies were a huge hit at playgroups, so she decided to sell them. She’s now in her third year of business.
  • At the moment, Debbie is a one-woman show but hopes to grow the company in the future!
  • When Debbie picks Benjamin up from school, she usually has a little cookie for him in her pocket!
  • Benjamin prefers to eat his cookies a little cool, but still enjoys them hot out of the oven as well.
  • The best compliment she has received is “Oh my goodness, they taste normal”. Her goal was to create an allergen-free cookie that tastes like the ones her mom used to make.
  • Debbie’s first job was a childhood educator – for almost 26 years!
  • She was born and raised in Victoria, BC.
  • If she could take a visitor to BC anywhere, she’d take them somewhere that shows off Victoria’s greenery, like Beacon Hill or Goldstream Park.
  • She’s a vegetarian but eats fish once in a while (she is from the coast after all!)
  • As well as baking, Debbie loves to cook. Benjamin’s favourite is the Chickpea Daal she makes.
  • After a hard day at work, she likes to hang out with her family – go for walks, to the library, or swimming!
  • Beyond enjoying her allergy-friendly cookies as a treat, try them in these Thrifty Foods Recipes!

b-tea-kombucha-canadaWhat is Kombucha?

  • pronounced “com-BOO-chah.”
  • a fermented tea naturally rich in prebiotics and probiotics.
  • raw and organic with a slightly sour-sweet-fizzy taste
  • nutritious,  low in calories, caffeine and sugar

For centuries Kombucha has been brewed throughout Asia and Eastern Europe.  Kombucha was introduced to North America by people who had traveled to Asia and learned of its nutritive effects and its cleansing and detoxifying potential.

Kombucha starts out as a sugary tea fermented with a Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY) and yeast (in the form of Medusomyces gisevi). In seven days, the tea is transformed into a refreshing, effervescent, lightly astringent beverage LOW in calories/sugar and FULL of living probiotics.

B-Tea Beverage was established to fully explore all the benefits of the revolutionary healthy products. Our team is made up of experts and professionals in the nutrition industry. With all the fame surrounding Kombucha majorly due to its nutritional value, we decided to bring our wealth of experience together to make a very unique brand of Kombucha that is brewed under the most strict guidelines that follow traditional recipes using Pilzen laden water and best organic ingredients available. This is how B-Tea Kombucha was born.

What is B-Tea Kombucha made of?

  • B-Tea uses only 100% raw and organic ingredients, juices, and extracts without preservatives, sugars, chemicals or artificial colors.
  • Pilsner Laden Water from the Czech Republic
  • Darjeeling Black Tea and Japanese Bancha Green Teas antioxidants
  • Organic brown cane sugar, consumed during the fermentation results in tea low in sugar and naturally carbonated

Noodle Box

Noodlebox was born out of a small food cart in Victoria BC’s Chinatown in 2001. Our unique style of Southeast Asian street food became so popular that people were willing to wait hours in the rain to get their fill. In 2003 we opened our first store in downtown Victoria, with many more opening throughout BC and Alberta to keep up with demand for our bold dishes.

 FRESH FOOD, MADE BY REAL PEOPLE

We’ve been concerned by the rise of the processed food generation and the departure of nutritious food sources. Our kitchens want to reverse that trend.

What we will always do best is prepare real food, by hand – made from fresh ingredients like non-gmo vegetables sourced locally whenever possible. Our special sauces are house made, with no added MSG.

We support sustainable & ethical producers, with farm-to-plate practices that deliver a premium product with trusted transparency.


NoodleBox prides itself on trusted transparency – premium ingredients, ethically raised protein, MSG-free, sustainable practices, farm-to-plate and committed to community.

  • Standard Protocol – every wok is scrubbed by hand, every time.
  • Gluten-Free Protocol – let staff know your dietary preferences or intolerances and the chef’s station will be re-set with fresh utensils, cloths and squeaky-clean hands.

Ask for rice noodles, jasmine rice or go no-carb / high-protein. Add in roasted cashews, crushed peanuts or even a fried free-range egg to gussy up any GF dish! Dial in your spice level and you’re ready to go!  Facebook • Twitter • Instagram

We support sustainable & ethical producers, with farm-to-plate practices that deliver a premium product with trusted transparency.


NoodleBox prides itself on trusted transparency – premium ingredients, ethically raised protein, MSG-free, sustainable practices, farm-to-plate and committed to community.

  • Standard Protocol – every wok is scrubbed by hand, every time.
  • Gluten-Free Protocol – let staff know your dietary preferences or intolerances and the chef’s station will be re-set with fresh utensils, cloths and squeaky-clean hands.

Ask for rice noodles, jasmine rice or go no-carb / high-protein. Add in roasted cashews, crushed peanuts or even a fried free-range egg to gussy up any GF dish! Dial in your spice level and you’re ready to go!  Facebook • Twitter • Instagram

Contest applies to Douglas Street •  Shelbourne • Uptown • Langford locations only.

JD’s Sunshine Jams & Such 

From their hobby farm near the Sooke Pot Holes on Vancouver Island,  Janice and Danny Willis turn the fruits and vegetables from their garden into more than 130 gluten-free products. Sun-ripened and grown without the use of chemicals, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and haskap berries are transformed into succulent jams, jellies and sauces from Janice’s family recipes.  As Danny harvests successive crops of corn, tomatoes, hot peppers, beets, peas, beans, carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, asparagus, rhubarb, zucchini, Janice creates a potpourri of chutneys, pickles, relish and vinegars. Their flavourful, always gluten-free creations are sought after at  farmer’s markets throughout the region – and by fans around the world. Look for their brightly coloured display! Learn more about JD’s Sunshine Jams & Such …

Keep up with JD’s Sunshine Jams & Such at Sooke’s Thursday Market, Metchosin’s Farmer’s Market, Goldstream Farmer’s Market, Buccaneer Days in Esquimalt and more. See JD’s Sunshine Jams & Such Market Schedule

NOTE: JD’s Market Table is Gluten-Free! Only Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free Bread & Glutino’s Gluten-Free Crackers are used for sampling purposes.

JDs sunshine jams AJD’s Sunshine Jams & Such – The Back Story

For more than thirty years, Janice followed and supported her husband, Danny while he served as an RCMP officer across Saskatchewan and British Columbia. In 2014, they chose to settle in the community of Sooke and explore what they could make of their ‘retirement’ years.

As it happened, in June of that year,  their son James was working for a chef in downtown Victoria who was searching for ‘locally-made’ jams to serve during High Tea. He wanted something that would outshine the competition. In short order,  Janice stepped up to provide the eight jams and two vinegars she had been making for years from family recipes. Soon enough, she began selling in Artisan’s Lane to passengers from the Coho and Clipper ferries and tourists from around the globe. Three years later, she and Danny have turned their retirement into a full-time, full-scale labour of love!

It was important to Janice that her products be enjoyed by customers following a gluten-free diet. Janice attributes her regained health to her 100% gluten-free diet after years of struggling with a host of auto-immune disorders. Not only does she love sharing celiac-friendly wares at farmer’s markets, she loves to share her journey with others who are seeking to improve their health through fresh, locally-grown whole food

Janice is keen to learn more! If you have an heirloom recipe that you can offer Janice, she will gladly repay with a jar of her very best strawberry jam!

  • *All JD’s Sunshine James & Such products are gluten-free with the exception of Mocha Stout Jelly  & Pothole Jelly
  • *PREPARED IN A KITCHEN THAT IS NOT INSPECTED BY A REGULATORY AUTHORITY

JDs sunshine jams AJD’s Sunshine Jams & Such – The Back Story

For more than thirty years, Janice followed and supported her husband, Danny while he served as an RCMP officer across Saskatchewan and British Columbia. In 2014, they chose to settle in the community of Sooke and explore what they could make of their ‘retirement’ years.

As it happened, in June of that year,  their son James was working for a chef in downtown Victoria who was searching for ‘locally-made’ jams to serve during High Tea. He wanted something that would outshine the competition. In short order,  Janice stepped up to provide the eight jams and two vinegars she had been making for years from family recipes. Soon enough, she began selling in Artisan’s Lane to passengers from the Coho and Clipper ferries and tourists from around the globe. Three years later, she and Danny have turned their retirement into a full-time, full-scale labour of love!

It was important to Janice that her products be enjoyed by customers following a gluten-free diet. Janice attributes her regained health to her 100% gluten-free diet after years of struggling with a host of auto-immune disorders. Not only does she love sharing celiac-friendly wares at farmer’s markets, she loves to share her journey with others who are seeking to improve their health through fresh, locally-grown whole food

Janice is keen to learn more! If you have an heirloom recipe that you can offer Janice, she will gladly repay with a jar of her very best strawberry jam!

Il-Covo-Trattoria Entrance-357x323

Gluten-Free Foodies Dare to Dine

Please join us for an authentic taste of Italy on Sunday, March 19th

  • Our Foodie Meet Up has been staged to avoid the hectic  Dine Around Victoria Month (February 17 to March 5th) Owner Italo was a little uncertain that he would be able to do our group justice at such a busy time. Some modifications would have been needed to the Dine Around Menu. That said, if you’d like make the most of their tempting $40 menu below, I encourage you to reserve now – and let the receptionist know you will be requiring some accommodations.

Il Covo Trattoria is an Italian-style eating establishment serving classic, home-cooked Italian cuisine in the warm and welcoming neighbourhood of James Bay, the heart of Old Victoria.

Il Trattoria’s owner, Italo, explained that all of their meals are made from scratch, à la minute (prepared to order, not prepped in advance and held for service) from whole foods and seasoned with fresh herbs & single-ingredient spices. Gluten-free pasta is cooked in a dedicated pot and drained through a dedicated colander. Il Trattoria’s menu features gluten-free notations to the left of standard menu items. (see below) Always let your server know of your needs – many meals can be adapted to be gluten-free.

Il-Covo-Trattoria Entrance-1024x538

A unique opportunity to take in this historic heritage-designated building. Built in 1914 by architect JCM Keith whose design credits include Christ Cathedral and the Legislature library. Named the “Connaught Seamen’s Institute”, its function was a safe haven for young merchant sailors providing them a bunk, food and guidance while waiting for their next vessel. Outside you will find a plaque that reads… ”Seamans Institute. Come unto me all Ye that are weary and I will give you rest”.

Gluten-Free Foodies Dare to Dine

famoso-gluten-free-pizza-victoriaRead the Review Below!

Famoso Neopolitan Pizzeria – Fellow celiacs reached out to The Celiac Scene to report that they had been enjoying safe and delicious gluten-free pizzas at Famoso’s on Pandora in downtown Victoria. This I had to see for myself! See Scene map

The Celiac Scene visited the restaurant in person and spoke to Louis, the manager on shift. He took the time to carefully outline their practices, starting and ending with the proviso that their restaurant handles wheat. Fair enough.

Here’s how Famoso’s handles ‘gluten-free.’

    • every morning, staff prepare the day’s supply of gluten-free crusts.
    • the crusts have been tested to contain < 20 ppm, conforming to Health Canada’s safety standard
    • gluten-free orders are prepared at a dedicated station in the kitchen, removed from the main preparation area
    • gluten-free ingredients are stored in dedicated bins and used exclusively for gluten-free orders
    • gluten-free orders are cooked in a physically divided oven to ensure that there is no contact with regular orders
    • Famoso’s also serves gluten-free pasta, cooked in a dedicated pot, strained with a dedicated colander. Identified sauces are gluten free.

Famoso Review from February 5th, 2017

Dear Corey, Louis, Luca and Anna!

Last night was excellent! 

A fantastic turnout of very sociable celiac and gluten-free diners thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Famoso’s Victoria! 

Anna, our Waitress, Handsome Servers, Corey (Culinary Manager), and most importantly, Louis (Kitchen Manager) and his Elves took good care of us. It seemed everything on Famoso’s menu was able to be made gluten free. We took full advantage of that! I had the Pasta Prima Verde with Pesto Sauce on Penne. Fab! 

See pics from our Foodie Meet-Up site: https://www.meetup.com/Victoria-Gluten-Free-Foodies/photos/27600509/

Thank you for your patience as we made plans to dine with you from first contact with Louis on December 23rd to finally dining with Corey 6 weeks later, with a phone call conversation with Luca in between! What fantastic service. It is nerve-wracking for celiacs to venture to new restaurants but once we do find a place we trust, we offer a 96% loyalty rate. 

Thank you for all of the care and attention you provided us. Restaurant dining at its best! 

Warm regards,

Testimonial:We had Madeline’s cousin visiting from Halifax for a couple weeks. When we toured them up to Chemainus/Ladysmith all eight of us (one celiac) enjoyed a delicious meal at Wild Poppy. We had to have take out as the restaurant was full. Wonderful to see.”

Old Towne Bakery Ladysmith

Old Town (Wheat) Bakery, 510 1st Avenue, Ladysmith

As co-owners of the Old Town (Wheat) Bakery at 510 1st Avenue in Ladysmith, Vancouver Island, Kate Cram and husband Geoff could easily be considered local celebrities!  As an ‘Associate with the Culinary Institute of America‘ who also undertook to certify as a Red Seal Baker in Canada, Kate is truly baker’s baker!

Two children later, Kate and Geoff’s young sons began to experience persistent health issues that had them resorting to a gluten-free diet in search of relief.  The improvement was nothing short of remarkable and a heads up to Kate that gluten may be taking a toll on her own health. The couple found themselves at a professional and personal cross roads with Kate contemplating the end of a career she loved, and their children unable to  set foot within the family business.

Wild Poppy Bakery & Bistro 541 1st Avenue, Ladysmith

That’s when Wild Poppy Bakery & Bistro – 100% gluten-free and peanut-free – was born, right across the street from Old Town Bakery! 

Kate’s health has never been better and business is booming. Husband Geoff continues to oversee Old Town Bakery while Kate applies her professional training to creating unparalleled gluten-free buns, scones, muffins, cheese cakes, cookies, fruit tarts, granola and so much more.  And if that were not enough,  gluten-free birthday and wedding cakes, and even gingerbread houses, are the icing on Wild Poppy’s offerings!

Real Food Made Easy Engagement Cake
Celiac Scene Review

From the moment I laid eyes upon Janice Mansfield’s gluten-free cake gallery  I was in love! I had been waiting for an opportunity to commission one of these sumptuous beauties and my daughter finally delivered!

I leapt at the opportunity to commission this gorgeous gluten-free ‘Engagement Cake!’ Impossibly thick and rich layers of chocolate cake were smothered with huge butter cream swirls, tinted with reduced raspberry. Guests – all gluten-eaters but me – fairly swooned with each mouthful!

Real Food Made Easy Engagement Cake
Celiac Scene Review

From the moment I laid eyes upon Janice Mansfield’s gluten-free cake gallery  I was in love! I had been waiting for an opportunity to commission one of these sumptuous beauties and my daughter finally delivered!

I leapt at the opportunity to commission this gorgeous gluten-free ‘Engagement Cake!’ Impossibly thick and rich layers of chocolate cake were smothered with huge butter cream swirls, tinted with reduced raspberry. Guests – all gluten-eaters but me – fairly swooned with each mouthful!

Kerry Uncommon Carrot

Meet Kerry and ‘Mini-Me!’

Why The Uncommon Carrot?

I find it hard to eat healthy.  But with the birth of my first son in September 2013 it became a little easier.

For most of my life I suffered through gastro-intestinal issues. Poor digestion, bloating, fatigue… and the best the doctors could do was to tell me to avoid certain foods. And not the foods you would think but good for your foods (or as we like to call them, “Go foods”) like broccoli and bell peppers. When I found out I was pregnant with our first child I requested a juicer for my birthday as I knew I was missing so many nutrients my body would need to grow a human on my very limited and somewhat trashy diet.  We started juicing and making smoothies and I felt my energy levels increase.

But it wasn’t until my son was born and he had inherited my gastro-intestinal issues that I became determined to find some better solutions. We worked with a naturopath and first eliminated dairy then gluten from my diet and within a couple of weeks my son was a completely different baby. He went from borderline colic, super fussy and very difficult to happy, social and generally content. The added benefit? I felt 100 times better myself, lost that last 10 pounds and I could eat broccoli and peppers again no problem!

And just like that, we became a gluten-free, dairy-free, juice-making, smoothie drinking family.

Eating healthy can be hard, even when you know it’s best. We’re here to help you on your journey towards eating better and improved health; whether you find it to be effortless or an epic struggle.

 With love, Kerry

Screamin Brothers

The Screamin Brothers’ story grew in Canada but was born of tragedy.  In January 2010, the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti was not far from the oldest of the Screamin Brothers’ thoughts.

One of J.R.’s brothers had arrived home from Haiti only weeks before, and his youngest brother was now stuck in the wake of the devastation, his orphanage destroyed and living in a tent.

J.R. knew he couldn’t just stand by idly so he took his love of creating with food and began selling his dairy free frozen treats to raise money to help.

It didn’t take long for these delicious products to become so popular that J.R.’s brothers offered to help with the business.  The boys could see that the more frozen treats they sold, the more children they could help both locally and internationally!

Today, the Screamin Brothers are determined to make a difference with the world’s greatest natural resource … children!

Using Organic Coconut Milk, water and organic guar gum as their base, they have created gluten-free, allergen-free treats in 9 delicious flavors – with more treats coming soon!

See the splash that Screamin Brothers made on
