The gluten-free diet is recommended for individuals who are known to have a gluten issue or allergy, or have a recognized gluten sensitivity. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley that has been identified as the source of celiac disease and other inflammatory conditions. People interested in a gluten-free diet need to avoid all foods with any wheat, rye, or barley ingredients. Gluten is found in breads, pastas and many processed foods.
Keep in mind, just because a food is labeled “gluten-free” does not mean it is good for you. A gluten-free diet does not restrict fruits, vegetables, dairy, meats, poultry or fish. Beans and corn are also permitted.
The only gluten at CoreLife Eatery is the whole grain bread that is stored in a closed container at the end of our serving line. It is optional. So, if you are looking for a gluten-free meal, feel free to select any of our bowls. Here are some examples:
- Grilled chicken tortilla – broth bowl
- Sriracha ginger roasted tofu – green bowl
- Spicy chicken and ancient grains – grain bowl
“We visited your Henrietta location today and were blown away by the fact that we were not singled out or hassled because my sister is Celiac. This was the first time we’ve been able to eat out without having to worry she’d be sick. We simply said, “Hi, she’s a celiac.” They were gracious, professional, and one of your team members named Matt explained he would personally build her meal from beginning to end after he washed his hands and changed his gloves. We ate an amazing meal without any fear of cross contamination, and were able to enjoy it knowing my sister was safe. I can’t stress how much that means. People without Celiac Disease or food allergies just cannot comprehend how difficult and life threatening eating out can be. We’re not trying to be difficult or annoy you, we’re trying to eat safely. CoreLife Eatery gets it, and they do it PERFECTLY! Thank you!” – Kristin
