Ok. I’ve been meaning to write a post about this place for a while. You see, when I found out I have celiac and can’t eat gluten, this food lover went into a deep state of depression as I lamented all of the wonderful things I would never be able to eat again. There’s something about being told you have a medical reason not to eat certain foods that just makes you want them so badly. One such result of this spike in trendiness is my first experience eating a doughnut in years. And oh, it was delightful. I think a tear came to my eye and I requested a moment of silence so that just the doughnut and I could share this special moment together.

As a result of special dietary needs, traveling can sometimes be problematic since it involves venturing out into the unknown where your trusted food sources aren’t readily available and you may not be privy to where your best dining options might be.

If you’re going to be visiting North County Coastal San Diego in the near future, allow me to be the first to welcome you to the neighborhood. I know when I’m hanging out in a new place I like nothing more than sleeping in and then meandering over to some restaurant where I can be served a delicious brunch that I will linger over for far too long.

Every Thursday night in Oceanside, California, something awesome happens. I’m talking about the Main Street Oceanside Sunset Market, a.k.a. the best spot to eat in town.
Ok, so there’s something you should know about me before I write this and that’s that I found out in 2012 that I have Celiac. It was devastating news for this food loving, carb loading, travel obsessed eating machine, let me tell you. For years, I went on […]
That’s right. I went there. I decided to write an entire blog post dedicated entirely to the awesome goodness that is an In-N-Out Burger. My fellow Californians will agree with me: there is really nothing quite like that sweet, burgerey goodness that satisfies a deep, primal craving.
