The Truth About Artificial Sweeteners such as Sucralose/Splenda
"There is enough evidence showing the dangers of consuming artificial sweeteners to fill an entire book -- which is exactly why I wrote Sweet Deception. If you or your loved ones drink diet beverages or eat diet foods, this book will explain how you've been deceived about the truth behind artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose -- for greed, for profits ... and at the expense of your own health."

2018 some of my favorite restaruants w/Gluten Free menu and places where I've eaten and not had any issues
*Total gluten free kitchen & catering
*Tea Thyme Cafe Marble Falls
Totally Gluten/Wheat Free kitchen! Salad and hot bar with home cooking, usually three meats, fish, tacos, sandwiches and great desserts! They also sell breads.
We ate at Fogo de Chao for my husband's company Christmas party in 2017 and I had no issues. They make these really delicious rolls too all gluten free made with Cassava flour! Very yummy with lot's of butter! Tremendously awesome salad bar too! I ate mostly the filet and had some ribs. The chicken legs are marinated in beer so that's a no no for Celiacs and gluten sensitive folks.
*Elle's Cafe Bee Cave (dedicated gluten free)
Chisosgrill (gluten free menu)
PF Changs (anywhere we travel we look for this one. I've eaten here gfree for ten years)
Hopdoddy's Burgers & Fries (2 locations at Anderson and Congress)
All Star Burger at the Bee Cave Galleria. Dedicated fryer for fries. Burger is awesome with gluten free bun (no corn ingredients) or try one skinny with lettuce. They also have gluten free cookies, brownies and shakes. I've eaten here for the last five years and have not gotten sick.
J5 Steak House in Spicewood (great local place for a nice special occasion, love their Susan Salad is big enough for two, ask the server to split it for you if you'd like to share, tenderloin steak topped with butter sauteed shrimp, and broccoli, creme brulee for dessert)
Angels Icehouse in Spicewood (I get the Sara salad with chicken, be careful of CC though)
Maudies Mexican Food Restaurant Lakeway
Panera Bread - Chopped Chicken Cobb with Avacodo with NO Blue Cheese
Outback Steak House
Daily Juice in the shops of the Galleria. We believe in whole ingredient foods. No added sugars, chemicals or processed factory foods. Most people today have diets that are poor in nutrient density and quality, resulting in chroic conditions that are mostly preventable when you use food as medicine. Our fresh juices, smoothies and salads contain the vitality that will energize and nourish you. Visit us andsample amazing juices that are delicious! Eat better, Feel Better.
When we go out of town to visit our son on the east coast we eat at PF Changs, *Points South Latin Kitchen in Baltimore (totally gluten free and so so good, I highly recommend this place if you're in the area near the Harbor! Margaritas are some of the best I've had!), Bareburger in DC (dedicated fryer, gluten free bun)
We also eat at Glory Days when we're on the east coast! They are very aware of Celiac and gluten sensitivities so ask for their Gluten Free menu. Great burgers (their bun has corn ingredients however), awesome wings, and dedicated fryer for wings and fries! Really good margaritas too!
Modern Market (best gluten free whole grain bread I've had! There's a photo of our sandwiches on my blog post from our recent trip). They are in Maryland and in Austin!
