Lima was a truly magical city. It is at the crossroads of becoming a well-established tourist destination on its own versus a pit stop or jumping off point for more well-known destinations in Peru such as Machu Picchu or a diversion from the Galapagos Islands. Lima is a sophisticated metropolis that is a city of distinct contrasts grounded in a rich historical background…
I have not been posting as frequently as normal because as many of you know I am on the road in Lima, Peru.
Sadly my journey to Lima is coming to an end and I have had a truly fabulous time here. I was a bit apprehensive in the food allergy department at first but found this culinary capital of the Americas to be most welcoming to this food allergic diner.
My friends at Moni’s Naturals sent me some of their products to review and I could have been happier. Those of you from Texas might recognize the name because Moni’s is served at a host of restaurants down in the Lone Star State. After tasting these products it is no surprise why Moni’s has been a successful family business for decades…
I have said it before and I will say it again, I always love my trips to my local Costco because each time there seems to be more and more gluten-free items on the shelves. My last visit yielded a really great fine of gluten-free and vegan Veggie Patties from Don Lee Farms. I am typically not one for pre-made foods but after looking at the ingredients – these patties were all natural and had real honest to goodness ingredients (namely vegetables) so I thought why not give them a try.
My friends at El’s Kitchen sent me samples of their new Medleys flavors of Cheddar and Sour Cream and Onion. Now I have long been a fan of El’s Bagel Chips and Medleys since I first reviewed those products a while back. I was really excited to give their new flavors a try.
Now for those of you that are not familiar with El’s Medleys, they are a crunchy gluten-free snack mix that includes a fantastic mix of flaxseed corn chips, pretzels, potato chips, corn nuts, and bagel chips. I really liked their Original flavor which was quite unique and their new flavors did not disappoint.
