Jujubeet – A Plant-Based Juice Bar | Triumph Dining Review

Review of Jujubeet in Seattle by Triumph DiningOn a trip taken to Seattle a couple months back, one of the last places I stopped was Jujubeet in Bellevue. This juice bar also offers gluten-free food items. Their goal is to provide quick, simple, delicious, nutritionally rich food.Their storefront offers a variety of proven superfoods and they claim that everything they sell is crafted to provide you with the energy and the nutrition needed to make each day spectacular.

I enjoyed my Green Limeade Smoothie made of spinach, parsley, kale, celery, cucumber, apple, lime. It had a bit of a bite, which I liked. They also offer Happy Greens, Liver Purifier, Carrot Zinger and Just Beet It!  Continue reading “Jujubeet – A Plant-Based Juice Bar | Triumph Dining Review”

Celiac Family Opens Gluten Free Bakery | Triumph Dining

We’re always happy to hear about the opening of a new gluten-free bakery, but we’re even more excited to share when there’s a personal story behind it.

Lisa and Tim Jermyn are a couple living in Lockport, NY. Seven years ago they found out that all three of their children had celiac disease. When they weren’t impressed with the taste or cost of gluten-free options in their area, they began experimenting with gluten-free baking themselves. When Lisa discovered she was pretty good at this gluten-free baking malarkey, she decided to quit her job as a teacher and open a 100% gluten-free bakery!

A Better Way opened in December, 2012. Jermyn says that the store’s sweet products are priced similarly to those in a traditional bakery whilst the breads and pizza crusts are a little more expensive.

As well as at the store, A Better Way products are also available in Niagara County Produce’s Lockport location; at the Bakehouse Market in Father Sam’s in Cheektowaga; and at Wilson’s Pizza Shop in Newfane, which uses their gluten-free crust. They also plan to open a café at some point.

“When I first started, I didn’t think we’d have so many retail customers,” she said. She thought she’d be selling wholesale, but she laughed, “I couldn’t keep the people out.”

A Better Way location and hours:

6429 Dysinger Rd, Lockport, NY 14094

Tuesday-Friday 10am-6pm

Saturday 10am-3pm

100% Gluten Free Taproom Opens in St. Paul | Triumph Dining

If you thought a taproom serving only gluten-free beer was something you would only ever dream of, think again! Or come to St. Paul, Minnesota, where a brewery is doing just that.

The Burning Brothers Brewery opened their doors for the first time earlier this month and they serve only gluten-free beer. One of the brewery’s co-owners was recently diagnosed with celiac disease, which is what led to the idea of a completely gluten-free brewery. As a result, he began experimenting with gluten-free home brewing.

“Why? Because we get it. We’ve been there and we know what you’re going through. Our calling is to bring the freedom to drink beer back to everyone who is gluten-free. We want to not only give you that freedom, but to push the envelope and bring you flavors you’ve never tasted before.”

The owners of this gluten-free brewery say that they decided to focus on gluten-free beer because they don’t want anyone to have to “fear the beer!”

How exciting! The twin cities are already pretty gluten-free friendly but it’s great that gluten-free folks living in or headed to St. Paul now have another safe place to go for a drink!

If you find yourself in the city and fancy a gluten-free pint, regular hours are Thursdays and Fridays from 4pm to 9pm and Saturdays from noon to 5pm.

Cheers!

Passover Cupcakes from Kara’s | Triumph Dining

passover_cupcakeIf you’re in Northern California, there’s a sweet new addition that needs to be added to your Passover this year- Flourless (and GF!) Fudgy Cupcakes from Kara’s Cupcakes.

This cupcake is available all month long at any of Kara’s shops, or by order online for pickup or delivery. It is made with Scharffen Berger cocoa powder and sprinkled with C&H confectioners sugar and a festive blue fondant Star of David.

The texture and taste of the Flourless Cupcake is spot on, incredibly moist, light (for a GF cupcake as we all know they tend to be more dense) and a great chocolatey flavor without being overly sweet or overly chocolately. These make a great addition to any Passover dinner, or even as just a treat for any day. Continue reading “Passover Cupcakes from Kara’s | Triumph Dining”
