For Quentin (co-founder and Chief Executive Officer) and Rebecca Irey (co-founder and Executive Chef), raw foods was a concept that evolved into a lifestyle and then a business.   Raw foods naturally help you flush toxins out of your body. Raw foods are  more oxygenated, because fruits and vegetables are high in water content, and that H2O remains best intact in their raw form.  Pure Market Express‘s products are certified Gluten Free and created dairy free.  There’s no meat, dairy, refined sugar or preservatives, making Pure Market Express perfect  for vegetarians, lactose intolerant, gluten intolerance and those following other special dietary needs.

Gluten Free Thanksgiving Tips for Your Customers

Posted in Featured Brand on November 19th at 8:04 pm

Thanksgiving is a huge American tradition, where food is key. For people with Celiacs Disease or a gluten intolerance, a gluten free Thanksgiving can be hard. Not everyone understands the ins and outs of a gluten free diet. Cross contamination can happen and people can get sick as a result. Garden Spot Distributors has a few tips that you can share with your customers to have a safe and successful Thanksgiving.

For starters, the National Association for Celiac Awareness has some great tips for the holiday.  Some of their tips include:

  • Cook the entire meal yourself with only gluten-free recipes and ingredients.
  • If others insist on contributing, ask them to bring non-food items. Suggest extra ice, a bottle of wine, or even fresh flowers or candles for the table.
  • When the inevitable gluten-filled “gift” dish arrives, accept graciously and serve it away from other foods to prevent cross-contamination.
