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.

Look for their brightly coloured display! Learn more about JD’s Sunshine Jams & Such …

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

B-Tea is North America’s first live Kombucha

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

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.

  • TESTIMONIAL:  Just had dinner last night at the 6 Mile Pub on Old Island Highway. Wow! I have eaten here before but was amazed again at the GF menu selection, presentation, deliciousness, and the feeling of safety eating there. We went with another family and it was so awesome that I could share food with others who easily ordered GF even though they aren’t Celiac because there is just so many good things to choose from. The calamari is the best I have had anywhere. All the deserts were gluten free. How is this possible I wondered? I asked the waitress and she told me the chef is Celiac! We need more Celiac chefs that are this creative!! I this has got to be best restaurant for dinner for Celiacs in the Victoria area.
