There’s a local organic movement that is sweeping Dallas off its feet. You can thank local restauranteurs for opting for local produce and baked goods first before buying from wholesale retailers. My favorite burger joint now has gluten-free buns from a local gluten-free bakery, my post office now sells fresh peas and turnips along with local honey and barbecue sauces (score!), I can buy free range eggs at the market near the lake, and get raw almond milk at the farmers market. Dallas has come a long way.
On my way to pick up lunch this week I discovered that an organic raw juice stand had opened in Shed #2. Boom Juice offers fresh pressed, organic juices that can be used as food supplements during cleansing. They also have a special liquid diet for new moms, brides-to-be, and juices for babies when they’re ready to eat solid food. Boom Juice also makes fresh coconut milk and almond milk. If you haven’t been down to the Farmers Market in a while, it’s time to check out all the new stuff. Don’t forget the new gluten-free cheese bread stand Ipanema Cheese Bread run by Hortencia Dunaway. Every weekend Dunaway creates delicious gluten-free lunches from stews to chilies and baked desserts for anyone who want to steer clear from gluten.
