Places in Nashville with Gluten Free Options
Gluten free restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries in Nashville
Five years ago, I would have started this article with the question, “have you heard of gluten and gluten intolerance, or celiac disease?” Today, I do not even have to ask that since the norm now is hearing about and seeing these phrases on products in the media and thankfully in your local coffee shops and restaurants/bakeries. As the products we eat have become more and more global with higher and faster production, the quality has changed, and our bodies are being forced to evolve and adjust to the changes. Many of these changes, evolutions, are manifesting as auto immunities. I read an article once about how auto immunities are simply part of an evolutionary process that is taking place, and I would venture to say that is true. Regardless if that is true, it does not make it more pleasant, easier to understand or ok.
Gluten is a protein composite that is found in wheat and some other grains. The body's reaction to this protein composite for some people is unpleasant and can cause GI upset, intestinal inflammation and digestive issues, as well as brain fog and other symptoms. These can manifest in such a way, leaving the “victim” of gluten in confusion as to what is going on and what is causing the problem. The allergy or intolerance for gluten is highly misdiagnosed but if successfully labeled and diagnosed is discovered and confirmed through blood testing that identifies the antibodies that represent this condition or disease. And it IS a disease. It is not a fad, not a joke, not a way for people to seem healthier. It is a DISEASE, and in our opinion, simple education can make all the difference in the world for those that suffer and others who may not even realize they are suffering.
The intolerance or disease has varying severity. In most cases, a little can be enough to cause major issues. Because of this, “gluten free” is not completely true in all cases. A small amount of gluten in a factory from other products can then add that small amount of gluten to a “Gluten free” product that is coming down the same conveyor belt. In order to be “Certified Gluten Free,” the product must be made in a facility that is dedicated to 100% gluten free practices. This is mainly for products that you could buy in Whole Foods or Trader Joe's and Kroger even. For eating out, there are more and more gluten free options in Nashville that are becoming available.

Upcoming Post Events

He also writes much of their material, unless they're playing from the deep and wonderful catalog of John Hartford.

February 21 - Lane Abernathy (10 - 1PM)
Lane Abernathy grew up in Bell Buckle, TN a small town of 450 people 50 miles outh-east of Nashville. There's no stop light, trains barrel through every hour or so, and getting stuck on the road behind a tractor isn't unusual. Childhood for Lane meant potluck dinners and back-yard bonfires, grownups singing the likes of Van Morrison and the Rolling Stones, and long walks through the woods. The group of families who raised their children together surrounded Lane with a sense of wonder and passion that has guided his life and helped him grow into an artist deeply connected with his roots and the world around him.<--

Pure coffee, pure juice, pure life. At the core of our philosophy lies the idea that our bodies deserve only the best. Only the freshest beans from fair-trade certified coffee growers. Only the purest produce from organic farms, and only the highest-quality flours from local mills. We know you wouldn't settle for anything less than the best at home, so why should you when going out?
Our good friends at Victrola Coffee in Seattle, WA supply us with our heavenly coffee. Their purist approach to coffee, like ours, is to serve only the best. All Victrola coffees are fair-trade certified, and are a product of cultivated relationships with the growers.
When it comes to extracting juice from fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices, we have found that there is only one way to go: cold-pressed. In order to preserve the natural enzymes and nutrients from the produce we juice, extreme care must be taken during the juicing process. Our juicers use a masticating (chewing) method with gears that slowly grind the pulp, then press the juice through an ultra-fine screen. This insures minimal oxidation of the juice, and zero heat. Since we use only 100% certified organic produce, you can rest assured that you are getting only the best for your body. Organic produce is the only way to guarantee avoiding the high concentrations of pesticides and herbicides used on today’s conventionally-grown produce.
Nicole Wolfe of Wolfe Gourmet Cakes, and Lauren Cowley of Artemis Breads keep us in awe day-to-day with their unique, baked creations. Nicole bakes everything from cajun crawfish croissants, to five-tiered wedding cakes. Lauren is the creator of our gluten-free and vegan menu with delicacies ranging from the egg-topped Bullseye Biscuit, to the vegan almond-topped Amazing Delicious bars. Be sure to check our Facebook page for daily updates and specials!
It's hard to beat an ice-cold smoothie on a hot summer's day (or after a tough East-Nasty work-out). Our smoothies use the same 100% certified organic produce as our juices, and feature boosters like chlorella, spirulina, macca root, and locally harvested bee pollen. We use dates, agave, and local honey to sweeten the deal, never powders or concentrates. Don't forget to add hemp or soy protein to add some oomph while still keeping it vegan!

Open everyday from 7:00am - 6:00pm. From downtown, take the Shelby Ave. exit east into East Nashville. Continue on Shelby Ave. until 17th, turn left on 17th and we’re two blocks down.
