Dining Out Gluten-Free - Local Menus Celebrate Celiac Awareness Month













Breaking gluten-free news! Check out the wonderful gluten-free news that I received in my Inbox this morning! I wanted you to be the first to know so that each of you in my community can plan ahead to enjoy this fabulous, gluten-free dining out opportunity. Not only is it gluten-free -  it's for a great cause!

May is Celiac Awareness Month and in celebration, all month long, Jsix Restaurant will be offering $30 prix fixe menus as an extension of their existing gluten-free menu items. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to further celiac disease research.

Described a playful, inviting and passionate, I am truly looking forward to experiencing JSix's upcoming gluten-free prix fixe menu. Located downtown adjacent to the stylish Hotel Solamar, JSix offers a perfect gluten-free night out experience. I am a personal fan of JSix because I feel we share a  "Slow Food"-inspired philosophy that features fresh, local and seasonal ingredients (right up my own alley!).

“A gluten-free diet can be very challenging for those who like to dine out,” said Executive Chef Christian Graves. “The options can seem very limiting. This is why we have created menus that are not only gluten-free, but include dishes that go beyond the norm.”

What a fabulous way to kick-off Celiac Disease Awareness month this May be enjoying one of these gluten-free meals out and supporting the cause. Each week will feature a new menu, complete with an gluten-free appetizer, entrée and dessert course.

Take advantage of these delicious gluten-free menu items nightly from May 1 to May 31, 2012.

And did I mention that in addition to these gluten-free menus, Jsix will also feature gluten-free recipes on their Facebook page all month long View the weekly menus here.

Here is a quick taste of a few of Executive Chef Christian Graves gluten-free menu items for May:

Starter: Organic Baby Lettuces served with St. Germaine-Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette, Baby Carrot Coins, Persian Cucumbers

Entree: Double Cut Niman Pork Chop served with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Duck Potatoes, Red Wines Sauces, Hollandaise

Dessert: Brule Banana Split served with Caramelized Banana Split, Toasted Almonds, Whip Cream, Chocolate Sauce

I love how the folks in our local San Diego restaurant community are embracing alternative cooking options. Do you have a  favorite gluten-free dining spot? If it's not already, JSix should be on your list!

As many of you already know first-hand, it makes such a difference to be able to go out to eat with friends, family or on a date and be able to trust in honest, clean, delicious gluten-free food. When those of us gluten-free eaters find a great spot - we are a LOYAL bunch! I am so grateful that we have so many delicious choices here in San Diego. You know a few of my favorite gluten-free spots. I hope you'll stop by and share a few of your own.

When I work with my health coaching clients I often find that they've been eating gluten-free for years but still not feeling their best. I love having the tools to support my clients to look and feel their best! It's truly amazing the power that one conversation has to change your health...
