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.

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 Dragon’s Den, read about their story here or prepare to meet these ‘pint-sized’ celebrities in person by following their schedule on Twitter!

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.”

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!

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

Cascadia Gluten-Free Granola

Cascadia Ingredients

Cascadia Gluten-Free Granola is made with premium ingredients.

A half-cup serving provides 16% of daily protein, 15% of fibre, 12% of iron and loads of B vitamins and trace minerals. The good fats come from coconut, nuts and seeds and just a little bit from pure olive oil. With yogurt and fruit it’s a breakfast that lasts.  

And YES! It’s gluten-free.  Ingredients have been sourced carefully, then prepared and baked in a gluten-free commercial kitchen.  Just to make sure, it has been tested using ELISA technology.  It’s safe!

My favourite way to enjoy Cascadia Gluten-Free Granola is by the handful – right out of the bag! A more restrained consumer may have sufficient quantities left over to give this oat-free, gluten-free brand a go in any number of permutations! Make every ounce last!

NoodleBox-300-x-250

$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.

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

Find Route 14 at 6686 Sooke Rd at Townsend

Find Route 14 at the epicentre of all things gluten-free,  the corner of Sooke Road and Townsend – at the town’s famous roundabout! Visit Route 14’s Feature Page. Route 14 Pub is your last chance to dine gluten free before you surf Jordan River, trek the West Coast Trail, party in Port Renfrew or drive the Pacific Marine Route to Lake Cowichan.

Bard's Beer

Bard’s – 100% Gluten Free

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.

Root Beer Kraut Route 14Route 14 will be serving up her Root Beer Kraut along with their Pulled Pork – West Coast living at its gluten-free finest!

Check out Route 14’s menus below or keep tabs on the possibilities via their Facebook Page for daily special. Yes, they are on Instagram!

If you have questions or additional sensitivities, give Route 14 a call ahead of time. They are keen to make this a special evening for all of us!

Phone: 778-352-1414 or email [email protected]  • 6686 Sooke Road, Sooke


Route 14 is right next door to The Uncommon Carrot, now open as Sooke’s first and only 100% Gluten-Free Juice Bar & Cafe! Between the two, you can be healthy and have fun – and vice versa!

The ‘UC’ closes at 4pm on Sunday but feel free to join The Celiac Scene at 3pm to check out the space and be dazzled by their fabulous offerings. Plan to do some shopping!

Lot1 Pasta Bar

Victoria’s Gluten-Free Foodies Dare to Dine

Lot 1 Pasta Bar is the location of our next Gluten-Free Foodie Meetup!

Please join us on Tuesday, August 30th at 6pm – 815 Cloverdale Ave.

RSVP via Gluten-Free Foodies – No Drop Ins
Not a Meetup Member – Sign Up Here or Email [email protected]

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.

Every taco served has been pulled from Mexico City’s street culture, spiced with authentic Mexican peppers – Guajillo, Ancho, Achiote, Chipotle  – to be shared with us. It is time to taste a taco as it was meant to be – gluten free – and from a Food Truck! A true north Taco Revolution!

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.”

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!
