“Gluten-free” stole the limelight for its promised benefits of weight loss, improved overall health, increased energy, and accommodation for people with gluten intolerance, sensitivities, or even diseases that prohibited them from consuming gluten.
Over the years, bakers and shops that offer gluten-free goods have grown in number in Toronto. The list of Toronto’s best gluten-free cake shops and bakeries gets longer each year.
ActivEats complements this move away from gluten (and dairy) by offering a menu that’s free of gluten and dairy. ActivEats is a healthy food delivery service that serves two weekly alternating menus made without gluten or dairy, to guarantee that every mealtime offers a nutritionally balanced meal.
As the interest and market for gluten-free goods expands, restaurants and shops dedicated to serving gluten-free products are becoming easier to find. For those who want to enjoy a gluten-free diet without having to do restaurant take-out can benefit from ActivEats’ daily gluten-free meals – breakfast, lunch, and dinner made without gluten or dairy can be cooked and delivered to each person’s door.
For gluten-free cakes, ActivEats has put together a list of the best gluten-free cakes in Toronto.
