Wilson GF July Updates

  • Mellow Mushroom (which serves gluten free pizza) has a restaurant scheduled opening in Fall 2011 in Greenville NC! YAY! :-)  Thanks for the tip Heather!
  • Another great restaurant I enjoy in Greenville is Five Guys Burgers & Fries. The fries are made in a dedicated fryer & the burgers are gluten free (sans the bun of course).  They do have peanuts available throughout the store for everyone to enjoy, so if you have a peanut allergy this is not the place for you to go! 
  • Margaret Highsmith, a Greenville resident has opened a gluten free cake bakery out of her home in Greenville and she will deliver to Wilson. Her specialty is gluten free special occasion cakes and the bakery is called Gluten Free Dream Cakes ( You can contact her by email: or phone: 252-917-2966
  • Hibachi 101, located in Heritage Crossing in Wilson across from Harris Teeter is a quick Japanese grill and I have been able to eat there safely several times. I order the hibachi chicken or steak, I make it clear when ordering that the staff needs to clean the grill and that they do not use ANY sauces on my meat or vegetables. I order this with white rice and I haven't gotten sick. If you miss Japanese, this might be a good option to try! :-) 
Upcoming Gluten Free Coffee Breaks: 
  • Tuesday July 19th, 7-8pm Wilson Target Starbucks
  • Tuesday August 2nd, 7-8pm Wilson CHICK FIL A 
  • Tuesday August 16th - CANCELLED
  • Tuesday August 30th - 7-8pm Wilson Target Starbucks
Upcoming Gluten Free Monthly Meetings: 
  • Saturday August 13th -- location & time pending -- I'm hoping to plan this at a local Wilson restaurant that can meet our gluten free dietary needs. If you have a suggestion, please let me know!
  • Saturday September 27th - Winstead UMC 3-5pm

Why Gluten Free Coffee Breaks?

Every other Tuesday our Wilson Gluten Free Support Group meets up to have a Gluten Free Coffee Break. The purpose of these meetings is simple: we need to share our experiences. Being gluten free in a gluten filled society can be tough. Food is important in so many aspects of our lives... and when you are gluten free it effects every part of your life. 

Our Tuesday night coffee breaks are simply a safe place for you to share your experiences, have a safe gluten free cupcake or brownie, and just have the opportunity to talk with people who get it. Whether you're gluten free due to celiac disease, autoimmune disorders, autism spectrum disorders, or simply for health reasons, we're here to help you. 

Our next GF Coffee Break will be held on Tuesday June 21st from 7-8pm at the Wilson Chick-Fil-A on Forest Hills Rd. If you have any questions about our coffee break or about our support group, please email Carrie (gingerlemongirl at gmail dot com). 

I look forward to meeting you! :-)
