Habibi’s started off as a local restaurant on West Broadway – the first in Vancouver to introduce an all-vegetarian menu featuring traditional Middle-Eastern style cuisine. Habibi’s Restaurant enjoyed an amazing following with a reputation for good food that lasts to this day.

When the time came for the restaurant to close it doors, Abe bought the business and Jeff soon joined him as co-owner. Both were determined to carry on the Habibi’s torch. With help from Abe’s mom Mona – famous in her own right as the owner of Mona’s Lebanese Cuisine South Vancouver – they breathed life into Habibi’s famous hummus, blended in some of Mona’s old-world recipes – and brought traditional home-made hummus to retailers across British Columbia! Better yet, this gluten-free, non-GMO, all-natural vegan* brand is now available on Vancouver Island! Scroll down to see their selection!

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!

Great Bear Paleo Bites are from a Crossfitter for Crossfitters following the Paleo diet – this started back in 2008 when Tracy, our founder and creator, began Crossfitting in Perth, Western Australia. There she learned more about how to support her training goals with improved nutrition (which is a constantly awesome learning journey….)

Taught to bake by her Mom and Grandmothers as part of family time, Tracy has been baking since the age of 3. Former geologist turned sustainability specialist, Tracy Lydiatt holds a Masters degree in Strategic Leadership Towards Sustainability (Sweden). She is an award-winning sustainability advisor, educator and author passionate about sustainability empowerment and change.

Tracy has watched the merging of allergen free diets with the Paleo way of eating over the last five years. In late 2012, she chose to shift from being a home-based baker, supplying her peeps at her Crossfit gym, to a larger endeavor able to serve more people seeking to eat cleanly. Since then, we have grown, reformulated and expanded our product offerings – all intended to support clean eating and living.

We are really proud to be grain free, vegan and free of wheat-soy-dairy and nuts! (dairy = no butter/no eggs). We hold a gluten-free certification.

Closing Sale

Uncommon Carrot 2“Dear UC Family,

We have some sad news to share with you today. Stu and I have decided to sell the The Uncommon Carrot Cafe.

In the last couple of months I have been hit with a series of health issues, the latest being some heart irregularities and fainting spells. You may or may not know that we also found out in February, rather unexpectedly, that we would be welcoming our third child this October.

It is because of what is going on with my health and our upcoming addition to our family that we have made the heartbreaking decision to sell. We love the cafe, our staff, you – our UC Family – and what we have created for the community and are so bummed to have to end our journey now (and right before the summer!!). Ultimately though, we have decided we need to put my health and our family first.

We will be open this week, offering some great discounts on grocery items and retail merchandise, and then will be closing our doors and focusing on finding a buyer for the business. Unfortunately with my health the way it is, I’m just not able to continue managing the business on a day-to-day basis.

 Uncommon Carrot closing SaleFor anyone that has any outstanding gift cards, gift certificates, free drinks etc, please come and use them up this week. We will be open normal hours with our final closing taking place Sunday at 4pm.

If you recently won a personalized limited edition UC Jar and monthly smoothie or juice through either the Irwin Family Auction or the Sooke Region Chamber Auction we will be in touch to work out an alternative prize given the circumstances. Feel free to reach out to us as well.

Thank you so much for all your support. You helped us bring our dream to reality and we will miss you all terribly.”

With love,

Kerry and Stu
[email protected]


Thank You!From The Celiac Scene and the Gluten-Free Community:

Dear Kerry,

You dreamed a wonderful dream, and have the respect of our community for venturing to create an oasis for folks with food sensitivities – and sensibilities. Thank you for undertaking to learn so much on our behalves, for sharing that information with your staff and your customers and for holding the line on our collective safety and enjoyment. Your efforts will not be forgotten – rather they are an inspiration to anyone who dares to envision a better world!

Wishing you,  Stu and your growing family our very best.

Ellen Bayens,
The Celiac Scene

  • I think a lot of us, by the time we’re diagnosed, have had more than our share of health care practitioners and may not want to bother with a dietitian.
  • Selena played a crucial role in my recovery, and I would highly recommend her, whether you’re newly diagnosed or just trying to feel better.”
  • Charlene (long-distance celiac disease client)

Selena’s Road to Diagnosis

Selena De Vries RD, Celiac Disease Specialist

Selena De Vries RD, Celiac Disease Specialist

  • “When I was going through university, I was exhausted, ALL the time.  I had to drag myself out to hang out with friends, and if I had it my way I would have spent most days in bed sleeping.  It was not unknown for me to sleep 12-16 hours a day.  Call me crazy, but I related it all to the busy-ness of school.  I was even checked for anemia at one point (common with celiacs) and I was ‘fine.’  
  • The symptoms continued through school and the brain fog was undeniable.  I distinctly remember during my dietetic internship (like a medical residency except everything is nutrition based) at Kelowna General Hospital sitting in the office, charting on a patient and, literally, feeling like my brain was so fuzzy that I could barely keep my eyes from nodding off.  It was awful. 
  • Another thing I didn’t pay much attention to, was bowels.  I was always constipated.  Never the other way around. Never.  And, I also remember mentioning this to my gastroenterologist just before the endoscopy and he said ‘oh, well with your very low antibody levels and constipation, there is a very low chance that you are actually celiac but we will proceed with the endoscopy since you’re prepped and ready to go.’  
  • The piece of paper I received after the endoscopy said to follow up with my GP.  I did follow up with my GP and the report came back positive for celiac disease.  My GP said “well, you’re celiac.  But, you’re a dietitian, right, so this should be easy for you!”  
  • Perhaps I had a leg up in the nutrition part of it, but I think we all know that the gluten free diet is not a walk in the park.  And, although, I am so appreciative of the medical care I received, it did open my eyes to the lack of knowledge within the medical community when it came to celiac disease and the lack of support offered to individuals with celiac disease.  

That’s how Healthbean Nutrition was born!

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!

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!

Keri and Korbin

Keri and son, Korbin

Stella’s story began with a little boy, a very sore tummy and finally,  a diagnosis. Autism. With tons of therapy, natural interventions and changes to Korbin’s diet, Stella’s Gluten-Free Perogies were born. Dairy, egg, and soy-free, Keri was able to reverse 95% of Korbin’s symptoms. She and her husband were on their way to getting their baby back using her grandmother Stella’s recipe and fresh potatoes from a local farmer as their base. Stella’s non-GMO and preservative-free Perogies, Ravioli and Pizza Pouches took the 2014 Canadian Celiac Association National Conference by storm.

What sings about Stella’s is that they are made from fresh potatoes, delivered daily to their dedicated gluten-free facility in Lacombe, Alberta by the farmer who grows them. That means they are wheat free, gluten free, sulfite free, soy free and GMO free. Also available in dairy, lactose and casein free.

Compare Stella’s with perogies that contain up to 22 ingredients and you’ll know that hers is a product dedicated to purity. Stella’s uses only certified gluten-free ingredients in a dedicated facility but still tests finished products to confirm that they are 100% gluten free.

Don’t give ‘gluten-free’ perogies, manufactured in a wheat-based facility, a second glance. Trust in Stella’s!

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

 Lifestyle Markets Gluten-Free Shelf Tags

Look for Lifestyle Markets’ ‘Wee Gluten-Free Tags’ to guide you!

20 years ago, celiacs were hard-pressed to find food that met their basic ‘gluten-free’ requirements. Lifestyle Markets on Douglas Street in Victoria, BC was known as the ‘first-stop-one-shop’ for anyone new to the diet or new to town. Excellence is what has always set your stores apart from the rest, and Lifestyle Markets is once again championing our cause – that gluten-free consumers are entitled to the very best organic, non-GMO options available. Lifestyle Markets on also offer the most comprehensive selection of gluten-free flours and baking ingredients in British Columbia.

Big Wheel BurgerThe only thing better than a Big Wheel Burger is two Big Wheel Burgers! 
Lucky for Victoria – Big Wheel Burger has two locations to serve us! Delicious! Real! Fast Food! And celiac-safe french fries!

Scroll down for details

Big Wheel Burger #1 in Cook Street Village is right next door to the iconic Lifestyle Markets,  enjoys a solid reputation with gluten-free diners for their dedicated deep-fryer, yummy gluten-free buns and their careful protocol! See map.

Big Wheel Burger #2 is nestled next to Starbucks in Gateway Village, kitty corner from Uptown Mall. Gluten-Free folks from the far north of Victoria, or direct from the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal can easily  make this go-to gluten-free dining destination. (If you pass Whole Foods on the right, you’ve gone too far!) Pop in and check out this beautiful new restaurant.

Gluten-free deep fryers, dedicated prep station and staff who make themselves fully accountable for how they prepare your meal. When things are busy – and they often are – Big Wheel assigns one person to be the ‘Designated, Dedicated Gluten-Free Chef ‘ for that shift!

  • Just three gluten items to avoid at Big Wheel : deep fried pickles, regular buns and cookies 
  • Celiacs – always identify your needs when placing your order
  • GF Kids Meals – ask that the gluten cookie be left out of the order

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

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

Did you know that Country Grocer has ‘Localized‘ its shelves?

Localize Your Food is a unique grocery shelf labeling service that empowers consumers with a wealth of information including the who, what, where and how behind the hyper-local food suppliers and farmers who supply Country Grocer stores on Vancouver Island.

“We’re an Island-grown company so this program is a great fit for us. We especially appreciate how easy the program is to use. It’s nice that we can make it easier for our customers to identify local products on our shelves. It’s all about sustainability and helping each other in our community” says Country Grocer Director Peter Cavin.

Look for Localize labels in Country Grocer stores in Victoria, Cobble Hill, Nanaimo and Lake Cowichan.

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

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