Rocking the Menu with Gluten Free Options in Lancaster County

As I travel the culinary world of late, I have noticed a change in the landscape here in Lancaster County. Local restaurants have begun catering to the needs of those with Celiac Disease. Even here at the Bed and Breakfast, we have noticed a trend towards the gluten free diet.

And to accommodate these special needs, restaurants all over Lancaster have begun to offer a menu for those who require a gluten free diet. One of my favorites is Lily's on Main. Steve the owner/chef has become known in our area to challenge his staff with creative offerings for everyone who enters the restaurant, including those who are gluten intolerant. One of our pizza places in town is now offering a gluten free pizza as well. Carini's Italian Restaurant near by has had there Gluten Free Pizza on the menu since last year.

In New Holland a new Health Food Store has just opened and caters to many needs including dairy free, gluten free, organic and other forms of healthy lifestyle foods. But minutes away, you will be sure to have all kinds of fresh produce, cheese, and meats, many of them being local and all being healthy.

We here at the Harvest Moon Bed and Breakfast continue to offer to our guest a wide variety of gluten free breakfasts. We are always pushing the envelope with our breakfasts here, whether gluten free or not,  I need the challenge to continue offering unique and tasty morning meals. Be sure to let us know what your needs are and we will be sure to accommodate them.

My husband is gluten-free. When a restaurant can at least offer a few gluten-free items, it is so helpful. Also, it is fantastic when the options are pre-printed so we don't have to remember all the details as the wait staff quickly runs through potential options. Thanks for the update on the New Holland scene as well!

You are more than welcome. I believe that the whole push for a healthier eating is coming into the limelight. Glad that we are here to see it.
