Gluten-free gems in Victoria B.C.'s funky neighborhoods
The sky is blue and the sun is shining - it's a beautiful day in Victoria and it's FINALLY CONCERT NIGHT! When Shawn and I travel our meal schedule gets all mixed up. We usually end up eating a late breakfast/early lunch then start foraging for food again around 3ish. This day was no different. We started the day at West Coast Waffles, did some sightseeing, rested up a bit then headed to Canada's oldest Chinatown which happened to be just a couple blocks away.

Cruise ship cuisine - gluten-free dining on the high seas
Three women, one cruise ship, and five days of dancing equals one crazy girls trip on the first ever Zumba Cruise. In January, Mindy, Teri and I boarded Royal Caribbean's Independence of the Seas amped for tropical temperatures, exotic ports of call (Haiti and Jamaica), and the promise of food, fun, and sun.
Food is a big deal on cruises. There's a lot of it, it's readily available, and with a few exceptions, it's included in the cost of the cruise. Prior to our trip, I was uneasy about dining on the ship. Would they have anything gluten-free? Could I trust the kitchen staff to take appropriate care in preparing my food? I had visions of being stuck on a floating resort, wasting away and hangry while surrounded by the most enticing gluten-filled food known to humankind. Food allergies and intolerances are becoming more prevalent and many companies -- including cruise lines -- are doing their best to accommodate high maintenance eaters. Royal Caribbean is no exception. Here's what I found onboard:
A note to readers:
I am gluten sensitive/intolerant so I am not overly concerned with possible cross contamination. If you have severe reactions, I recommend taking additional precautions.
