Gluten-free Restaurant for Celiacs, Lugano Switzerland

November 2017 – Is it true that approximately 80,000 people in Switzerland are intolerant to gluten and one in five of these people are lactose intolerant? According to The University of Chicago Medicine, Celiac Disease Center, Celiac disease affects 1% of healthy, average Americans. That means at least 3 million people in our country are living with celiac disease—97% of them are undiagnosed.

I will say that in over twenty years of performing food intolerance testing, almost 100% of the people that came to me were intolerant to the lactose in milk and milk products. I also found that 95% of my clients were intolerant to wheat, 60% were intolerant to corn, and 40% were intolerant to soy. A very small percentage of people were intolerant to gluten. If you aren’t feeling well, try eliminating wheat, milk, corn, and soy. Check out Alternative Ingredients for Food Intolerances on this website.

Vegetarian Restaurant, East Boston MA

March 2016

When I landed at the Boston Logan airport I immediately opened my Happy Cow app to see where I would have lunch. La Sanghita popped up as a five star vegetarian restaurant in the East Boston area. The restaurant is right next to the airport, but because of all of the one way streets, I had to take a long circuitous route to get there. It was worth it!

La Sanghita – Vegetarian Restaurant

I entered La Sanghita and was greeted by a friendly face and an invitation to try a gluten-free vegan kale cookie. This cafe looks like a small house from the outside and contains space for 18 to 20 people to sit. Food is prepared from scratch with mainly organic ingredients and a lot (if not all) gluten-free ingredients. It took a few minutes to get my food and I appreciated the love and attention put into my meal. La Sanghita does not use microwaves so my food was heated on the stove. Delicious!

I had vegan quesadillas and vegetable soup puree with avocado:

Nepali, Tibetan, & Indian Restaurant, St. Paul MN

March 2016: The weather here in St. Paul Minnesota has been delightfully sunny and warm. I stopped at a restaurant that offers Nepali, Tibetan, & Indian Cuisine on my way to the James J. Hill House for a tour.

Vegetarian Nepali, Tibetan, & Indian Cuisine

Everest on Grand offers a lunch buffet every day which includes vegan and vegetarian options. I am not a fan of spicy food so I was a bit apprehensive when I entered, but the food was mild and flavorful. I had brown rice, a vegetable & dal dish, potatoes, salad, and dessert. Yum!

I will definitely return!

Burmese Restaurant, Palo Alto CA

January 2016 – I had to add this Burmese restaurant to my blog because the food was beyond fantastic and there is no way that I want to forget where this restaurant is. Parking lot half a block away where you can park free for two hours.

Rangoon Ruby Burmese Cuisine

Palo Alto CA Restaurant

Rangoon Ruby. Burmese restaurant Palo Alto CA. A cultural melting pot. How wonderful!

They have vegetarian options and standard dishes can be made vegetarian. I ate these exquisitely flavored dishes:

Veggie Kebat

A mix of vegetables stir-fried with paprika, masala, tamarind, green chilies, mint leaves, tomatoes, onions and cilantro

Mango Salad

Shredded fresh green mangoes served with fried onions, fried garlic, cabbage, red onions, yellow bean powder, cucumber and dried shrimp (they left out the garlic and shrimp for me)

When they brought the mango salad to my table I was told that the Tea Leaf Salad is the most popular salad at Rangoon Ruby’s. I will have to try it next time!

Tea Leaf Salad

This salad is a popular traditional treat unique to Burma. A mix of Burmese tea leaves, fried garlic, yellow beans, peanuts, sesame seeds, lettuce, tomato, jalapeno peppers and dried shrimp. This special salad will awaken your taste buds
(vegetarian option available)

Highly Recommended!

You will be given a number to take to your table of choice where they will bring you your food. The ingredients are fresh and from local sources whenever possible.

I ordered Bubbie’s Spring Bowl, a delicious combination of braised lab shoulder, red quinoa, steamed spinach, roasted asparagus, pickled red and watermelon radishes, and a yogurt-dill-pickled mustard seed sauce. I asked for the sauce on the side because I don’t usually like dill, but today I loved it! Even though this dish was not vegetarian, it was gluten-free.
