Probably the number one complaint we heard from people who were told they had food allergies and needed to change their diet when I worked in the Naturopath’s office was how inconvenient it was. I would have to agree. It makes it difficult to just grab something to eat when you’re on the go. I’m constantly in search of gluten-free and dairy free things to keep on hand for snacks or small meals when I don’t feel like preparing something. My cousin told me about Amy’s burritos and I have to admit, I was skeptical. A dairy free and gluten-free burrito? What the heck is in it? But I bought a couple of them anyway and was very pleasantly surprised. Great texture, great taste, and convenient! If you’re not dairy free she also has a variety of just gluten-free burritos. So far this is the only dairy free & gluten-free one that I’ve been able to find. And who really needs the added extra fat of cheese anyway, right?
I really love these! I always have in my freezer for a quick meal. Maybe gluten freeda will make one next.
I think now that gluten intolerance and food allergies in general are becoming more recognized by the general public that we’ll start seeing a lot more options. I would really like them to start working on phyllo dough and dairy free cheese and butter that really tastes like cheese and butter.
