$5 Noodle Box Sale Supports Mental Health

noodle-box-charity-day

Noodle Box is looking to change the stigma around mental health and raise awareness for different disorders through a fundraiser on Wednesday, September 21st.

Shelbourne • Douglas • Uptown • Langford locations will be selling select boxes for $5, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Mental Health Association. Hayden started the fundraiser three years ago at the Southeast Asian noodle bar’s Shelbourne location, adding it’s a cause that is close to his heart.

Victoria’s 4 Noodle Box locations will open at 11 am,  with the fundraiser running until supplies last.

Noodle Box Head Office has assured The Celiac Scene that locations will be able to accommodate gluten-free requests on this, their busiest day of their year! (limit of two $5 Noodle Boxes per person)

“I chose the Canadian Mental Health Association because I lost my brother to mental health,” said Hayden. “He committed suicide in 2010. He struggled with mental health growing up and had a lot of insecurities that followed alongside.

“I’ve struggled with depression through the loss of my brother. This is a way that I can help people out who are afraid to speak up about their personal problems.”

The Celiac Scene: “Feeling depressed / depression is a Common Sign / Symptom of Celiac Disease

New this year, all four of Hayden’s locations will be participating in the fundraiser. Hayden said he’s received a huge response from customers over the last three years, with thousands of people coming through to support the cause of mental health.

noodle-box“It was incredible seeing the amount of people that came from the community and spoke to me about their stories about mental health,” said Hayden. “They just expressed their gratitude in such a strong way.”

According to the CMHA, one in five Canadians will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime.

“Mental health is something that affects everyone in one way or another,” he said. “It’s something that’s slowly being brought to the attention of our community and our country and the world as a whole.”

“In our first three years of doing it, at the Shelbourne location alone, we’ve run out of food in the entire restaurant by about 6 p.m.,” he said. “We had stocked about double the amount of food that we would stock on a regular Friday night.”

The fundraiser will feature music along with a CMHA tent.  For more information visit cmha.bc.ca.

In 2003 they opened their first restaurant location on Douglas Street and have broadened their reach since then to Shelbourne, UptownLangford and Port Place in Nanaimo. Scroll down for their locations in Vancouver, BC and Alberta!

Celebrating the people and places that make the Saanich Peninsula the little piece of paradise we call home, writer Jo Barnes salutes Lifestyle Select’s 20 Years in Sidney: A Healthy Approach One Customer at a Time. Seaside Magazine, September 2016

Carmine Sparanese, owner of Lifestyle Select in Sidney and general manager Lifestyle Markets two locations in Victoria shares a bit of his story with writer Jo Barnes.

“Carmine never knows who might come through the doors at Lifestyle Select. It might be an overdue pregnant woman looking for suggestions to induce labour or a businessman dealing with insomnia. But no matter the need, Carmine and his employees are always welcoming and helpful.

What brings people back to your store time and time again? I’ve watched customers interact with our team for years and believe it is that special connection and trust that brings people back. We’ve made the choice to only carry quality products and offer great pricing, but it really is the people who make the difference.

What sets your stores apart from others? We have amazing people that run our stores, people who know their stuff by attending ongoing training to stay up to date with new research and products. We carry a wonderful variety of foods and products that help support many lifestyle needs including vegan, gluten-free, paleo and more.

How did you get started in this business? I was involved in accounting work with Lifestyle at the original Victoria location and the owners Bryan and Lorraine Peterson offered me a position as General Manager. I liked the concept of the business and wanted to be part of it.

When did the Sidney store open? The store opened in 1996. I can’t believe it was 20 years ago that we opened this location!

Does the clientele of the Sidney store differ from Victoria store? We do have more seniors than the other two stores, although younger families are becoming a larger part of our clientele. We also serve many people from the Gulf Islands who find our Sidney location to be very convenient.

How are you celebrating the store anniversary? We are celebrating our 20th Anniversary on September 23 and 24 with product samples, wonderful prizes, and even cake. We will also be raising money for the Sidney Lions Food Bank.

How important is diet in life? Along with strong faith, family or social network, our diet is the single most important factor in living a healthy lifestyle. It is so beneficial to consume larger amounts of organic produce and high quality fats and leaving behind over-processed packaged and fast foods.

What are the popular products right now? Popular products include quality fats such as coconut oil and fermented foods such as kombucha and sauerkraut.

How do you keep up with trends? We listen to our customers!

What do you like about this business? When I go home, I think to myself , ‘At Lifestyle we get to do this, we get to help people.’ It’s amazing to see, to watch people transform. I’m excited to be a part of that.”

Victoria’s Gluten-Free Foodies Dare to Dine

Route 14 Sooke 3

Route 14 is eager to meet you

*** RSVP to [email protected] or via Gluten-Free Foodies ***

It doesn’t get any better than the testimony of a diagnosed celiac, cycling through Sooke with miles to go before he sleeps!

Just had a great gluten-free meal at Route 14 in Sooke. Awesome menu with gluten-free notations and a great chef that isn’t afraid to use spices. I ordered a Morroccan Korma dish that was so good I asked for a spoon so I would not waste a drop. Owner Stew was a great host – well aware and talked to the chef immediately when I had a question about soup of the day. My small intestine can verify this is the best restaurant I have been to in months! I am celiac,  diagnosed just 7 months ago, and I am absolutely confidant this establishment is on the ball!

Route 14 Sooke 2

Not only that, Route 14 is the place where everyone knows your name – and staff will serve you your favourite gluten free brew – Bard’s Beer – just as soon as you sit down. Stew and staff will treat you like a long lost friend and introduce to the locals – like Jen of Wilde Fermentations.

Victoria’s Gluten-Free Foodies Dare to Dine

Here’s the Back Story on Lot 1

When a Mom-of-a-Celiac asked about  Lot1 Pasta Bar, I was certain that she was a glutton for gluten-free punishment!

Has anyone been to Lot 1 Pasta Bar. Good practices? Safe for 8 yr old celiac?

My immediate response:

Call me a Celiac Cynic but what are their assurances that the meal they serve you is gluten free aka celiac safe? We all know that a gluten-free crust does not make for a gluten-free pizza. I told her that I would stop in to say a celiac hello and to see what their protocol is.

Cue Trumpets!

I have tremendous news!!! Lot 1 has it all going on for the gluten free!! They are a sister restaurant to the highly regarded Bin4. The same attention to detail permeates this establishment. While Lot1 makes their own fresh gluten pasta on site, they are very mindful of minimizing airborne wheat flour. The kitchen is set up to cook gluten-free, Italian-made Preferisco Pasta in dedicated pots and colanders. All of their pasta sauces but one (the Hoisin-style) are gluten free. Servers can walk you through the appetizers that are not, as well as the ones that can be adapted. The restaurant has only been open for 5 days! Seems nothing escapes the gluten-free in this town!

Lot1 Pasta Bar

Thank you, Mom-of-a-Celiac, for posing this most wonderful question. Two thumbs and 8 fingers up for Lot1!!

Lot 1 had been added to The Celiac Scene’s Recommended Listings.

Pepper’s Foods Wins Independent Grocer Award! Oct 6, 2015 by Jacob Zinn – Saanich News

 Independent Grocer Award

After 10 years, Pepper’s Foods made it back on the podium at the Independent Grocer Awards.

The Cadboro Bay grocery store took bronze in the small-surface category, which is open to grocery stores across Canada with less than 15,000 square feet of space. The award recognizes Pepper’s for its community engagement and ongoing efforts to serve customers in the area.

“This year is big for us because we’ve kind of gotten back into the mix,” said Scott Zaichkowsky, assistant grocery manager, adding that a decade ago, the small surface area capped at 10,000 square feet.

“We always competed in the smallest category, but they upped the size of it, so the competition has gotten larger. Bigger stores, bigger chains, so since then, we hadn’t really taken any awards home.”

Up through 2005, Pepper’s – which is only 4,000 square feet – medalled five times in six years at the Independent Grocer Awards in the same category. While the pool of competitors increased, Zaichkowsky said their latest win confirms that they’re doing something right. “Ten years ago, when we had the smaller category, the competition wasn’t as intense. For us to come back 10 years later and establish ourselves… it’s a big honour for us, for sure,” he said.

For more than 30 years, Pepper’s has been owned by John Davits, with his son, Cory, working as general manager. Prior to that, the store was called Shop Easy and was owned by John Pepper, after whom Davits named the current store. Zaichkowsky said the family-run Pepper’s has been a staple of Cadboro Bay and credited the store’s friendly staff and local products as a few of the reasons why the community has been so loyal to it.

“Any time a local vendor or distributor approaches us with a local product, we’re all ears and open to carrying their product,” he said. “It’s always nice to be acknowledged. We’re excited by the fact that doing what we’re doing is getting such a great response.”

Gyro Park & Beach at Cadboro Bay
The legendary home of the “Cadborosaurus” sea serpent, Cadboro Bay is a partially protected bay with the kind of long, sandy beaches that make for sublime summer swimming, strolling and boating. The park has a replica of the Cadborosaurus creature, said to be a relative of the Loch Ness Monster. Caddy, as it is known, usually allows itself to be seen once or twice a year. Cadboro Bay’s beaches are well-equipped for family outings with picnic facilities, public washrooms and a children’s playground. Pack a snack from Pepper’s and enjoy!

Thrifty Foods shows you how …

Successful meal planning requires a little imagination and knowledge – that goes for everyone. Fortunately, many foods are naturally gluten-free, including plain meats, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables and grain alternative, as well as flours made from rice, corn, soy and potato that can be substituted for traditional gluten-containing items. Thrifty Foods shows you how!

Gluten-Free Foodies Dare to Dine

New to the gluten-free diet? New to Victoria? Too shy to dine alone? Join Victoria’s Gluten-Free Foodies and add a new restaurant – and possibly a new gluten-free friend – to your repertoire!

Thai Lemon Grass Restaurant has enjoyed rave reviews from the day they opened their doors in Cadboro Bay in 2013. Their chefs have been formally trained in Thailand by the Oriental Hotel and lucky for us, almost all of their menu items are gluten free or can be adapted to be.

The Celiac Scene popped by Lemon Grass to refresh staff about our gluten-free p’s and q’s. They are primed to serve our group of gourmets. Even the peanut-free can be accommodated! If you have additional sensitivities, allergies or questions, please contact Lemon Grass directly at  (250) 385-3838.  Refer to the reservation made under the name, ‘Ellen.’

We hope you’ll join us for this extra special summer evening! RSVP to [email protected]. No drop-ins please.

Elizabeth had me at ‘mole!’

“Only one dish, the mole sauce, has wheat in it, and it is prepared in a separate area.”

Music to a celiac’s ears! This assurance in Simple Gems in the May/June 2016 edition of Eat Magazine tipped the Celiac Scene to Esquimalt’s newest gluten-free gem, Restaurante La Tortilla! (scroll down to read review)

La Tortilla Gluten-Free Restaurante

Located at 910 Esquimalt (near Head Street), La Tortilla pronounces its gluten-free commitment on latortilla.ca and their menus invite diners to share information about additional allergies.

RSVP HERE or via Gluten-Free Foodies

La Tortilla Gluten-Free Restaurant Esquimalt

La Tortilla Menus

A quick phone call to owner Ricardo Rojas confirmed that La Tortilla’s dedication to healthy eating prompts them to use vegetable oils instead of lard and no gluten on the premises, except for the mole – which by the way gets rave review from gluten eaters.

La Tortilla serves authentically Mexican cuisine from the Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo and Guerrero regions and features empanadas, enchiladas and huaraches. No burritos or chimichangas to be found – or to wreak havoc with our gluten-free sensibilities!

New to the diet? New to town? Shy to dine alone – gluten free? Join Victoria’s Gluten-Free Foodies and add a new restaurant – and possibly a new gluten-free friend – to your repertoire! Join Victoria’s Gluten-Free Foodies as we set out to dine as a group at La Tortilla or head to La Tortilla today!
