Somehow, without even meaning to, my eyes seek out the words ‘gluten free’. And this was no different on a recent quick trip to Brisbane.
So here is a small sample of ‘gluten free’ in Brisbane.
All Real Food is convenience breakfast and lunch options in a refrigerated vending machine. I spotted one in the ‘Wintergarden’ on the Queen Street Mall, just outside a health centre. Fresh juices, wraps, salads, breakfast cereals are all presented in a jar with gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and paleo options. Go to their website to find their other seven locations around Brisbane.
Noosa Chocolate Factory have two stores on Adelaide Street and we are enjoying the Peanut Crunch and Peanut Brittle brought home. There is a range of chocolate coated products which are in the main gluten freee: strawberries, hazelnuts, sultanas, ginger. All products are 100% palm oil free and 100% vegan.
Snag Stand in Queens Plaza not only promotes 100% gluten free sausages but also gluten free buns (extra $). Check their website for additional stores in Queensland, Canberra and New South Wales. With Spicy Cheese Kransky, Spicy Spanish Chorizo, Toulouse and Australian Fare sausages a sample of what is on offer, these are tempting indeed.
Soul Origin is also in Queens Plaza and offers a range of clearly labelled gluten free salads. Stores can be found in New South Wales, Canberra and Queensland. Some choices are Bean Medley, Tuna and Avocado, Chicken and Steamed Vegetables, Lentil.
Schar Pizza Bases are not available in Townsville so we always visit the Greenslopes IGA to grab a few boxes. There are two in a box and they are a good quality pizza base ie they aren’t thin like cardboard nor do they crack and break. The store generally has a great range of gluten free products. The pizzas are also brought back to Townsville whenever we have family visiting from Brisbane.
House of Biskota was a newly seen gluten free biscuit range found at the Rock N Roll Marketplace on Logan Road at Stones Corner. With a little TLC on the flight home, the GF Almond Crescents and GF Melting Moments are being enjoyed by all.
A big thank you to my local co-ordinator for Coeliac Queensland who has supplied the Townsville group with this link : The Ultimate Gluten Free Guide to Brisbane Just one of the many reasons to be a member of your state’s Coeliac Australia Branch.
