Thank you! I was wondering what service needs to be provided in the gluten free lifestyle community? For one thing I find there was one blog about restaurants that were close to me, and others on beauty products. But what do we all need? Maybe a blog that reaches people all over? I don't do much traveling unfortunately but I want to reach a wide audience. I know we have support through spark people but what if there was a spark people specifically for people with celiac or gluten intolerance? Or maybe just start with the 3 main areas I go to.

As far as New York goes The Celiac Diva is on Facebook she has her own t.v. show and she lives in New York and answers all sorts of questions about the gluten free lifestlye she has really helped me. :) I hope this helps a little.

I follow a similar blog for the Austin area (atxglutenfree.com) - it's a wonderful local resource. Jessica offers recipes, restaurant information, and local GF events. It was a very helpful way to learn how to manage a GF lifestyle.

Good luck with the blog/website - I'm sure there are folks who would appreciate the information!

I love the idea. I used to live in So Calif and now live in Arizona. Who knows you may branch to other areas. Looking forward to your blogs and info on gf bakeries.

Like both but would like a place that I could go to and not have to worry about getting any gluten or corn products in my food

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Thank you for responding. Yes I don't know if their are too many gluten free blogs but I thought why not offer something? As far as the bakery or cafe goes I would make the items all gluten free, sugar free, and low carb. I know their has to be a way to lower the carbs in a baked gluten free goodie. Especially since their are people who have to worry about gluten and carbs.

Those are both great ideas, with the blog I'd check to see if anyone else is already doing it, but doesn't mean there can't be more than one. I'd be out of your market area. I'm in the Portland, Or area and we have one dedicated GF bakery that had to move once to expand and almost outgrown it's new location. There's a few combo bakeries but don't shop there since both are made in the same room at the same time. I've complained to one of them and they don't give a rats ass about CC, drives me crazy.

Thank you for replying. You like both ideas? Because who knows maybe someday it will expand or I can inspire others to make their own blogs from all around the states who knows maybe other countries too! Spark People has taught me to dream big.

If I made a blog or website dedicated to trying gluten free fare in Southern California or just generally at different restaurants would anyone be interested? I have a dream to one day open my own Bakery/Cafe. If someone thinks this is a good idea to open a bakery/cafe where every dish and dessert was gluten free please let me know about this and the blog. Please let me know if you like the idea of the blog or restaurant or maybe even both. :)

Thank you!
