Tips for Gluten-Free Living:

  1. Avoid gluten by consuming more whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, meats, and eggs, and learn more about the gluten-free products we carry on a complimentary store tour! Some of our favourite gluten-free brands include El Peto, Glutino, Namaste, Enjoy Life, O’Dough’s,  Udi’s, and Pamela’s along with many more.
