I love going to the Franz Bread Outlet as they are switching all their products to having no high fructose corn syrup in them. Their breads are awesome and we enjoy no worry about the high fructose corn syrup when we eat them. The clerk today said soon none of their products will have HFC in them.

I often get lunch from a local restaurant that encourages ordering and paying online ahead of time. I'm able to make healthy decisions at my desk and pick up the food without waiting in line. I leave my wallet behind when I go so I have no cash to get dessert on impulse!
The restaurant is Specialty's Bakery and Cafe, http://www.specialtys.com. They have stores in CA, WA & IL.
So Grateful For Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Options!
I have multiple food allergies and gluten intolerance, and I feel immense gratitude every day that the world of specialty food options has come so far. When I was first diagnosed, 18 years ago or so, there was almost NOTHING on store shelves that I could eat - I subsisted on celery sticks and lint. Today, I had Tofutti dairy-free soy "cream cheese" on Rudi's gluten-free bread (toasted), and it was SO DELICIOUS! I never take the awesome things I can still eat for granted. AND...(see below)...
...I write "thank you"s to the companies that make the awesome products that I buy - So Delicious, Rudi's bakery, Udi's, Lucy's gluten-free cookies, etc. Often they send me coupons in return, and I feel like there's a better chance they'll stay in business if they know they're loved and valued.
I love Sobe's Zero Calorie Life Water products. They keep me feeling full -- especially the flavors with Citrimax. And I like that they are sweetened with Pure Via (stevia). Cherimoya Punch and the Strawberry Dragonfruit are probably my favorites. They are a very tasty way to calm 3:00 or evening munchies!
