Gluten Free Portland

With our recent entry into the "special diet" club (Dave has become lactose-intolerant), I'm starting to hear from folks about other types of food sensitivities. While some are definitely related to preference, others can affect a person's health (like gluten-intolerance) or even be life-threatening (like nut or mold allergies that can cause anaphylactic shock).

In short, it's good to know about options when it comes to diet, and the blog Gluten Free Portland does a nice job of reviewing restaurants, providing recipes and checking out products for the gluten-intolerant crowd. Right now you'll find a review of Francis on Alberta, a test of Trader Joe's gluten-free pancakes along with a recipe for orange butter and then a comparison of prices for quinoa pasta.

Are there diet-related sites you like? Let us all know!
