Costa Vida – Gluten-free choices

Costa Vida, Gluten Free Choices

Costa Vida is a chain restaurant with about 45 locations in the South Western US.

The menu offers, “The ultimate way to eat a burrito. A piping hot tortilla stuffed full with cheese, sauce, black or pinto beans, cilantro lime rice, and your choice of protein. Don’t forget to get it smothered with one of our signature sauces: Red Enchilada Sauce, Roasted Green Chile Sauce, or Tomatillo Cilantro Sauce.”

The websites states, “We have worked diligently to remove wheat gluten from all our sauces, dressings, sauces and proteins. Natural glutens remain only in our flour and wheat tortillas and in two desserts–tres leches and key lime pie. This means that we offer “oceans of gluten-free choices” in our menu. All of these items are gluten-free: all enchiladas, all tacos, all salads (without the flour or wheat tortilla), all nachos, and our chicken tortilla soup…which uses corn strips.”

Sounds like a good place for a Celiac to eat.

Sherry Lynn’s Gluten Free Bakery and Cafe


It took more than a decade for doctors to tie Sherry Lynn Birch’s migraines, stomach pains and weight loss to a celiac disease. She spent the next few years looking for good-tasting foods that fit her restricted diet. There weren’t many gluten-free products on the market, in 2002 and the restaurant scene was even worse. Frustrated by the limited food choices, she started making her own baked goods from rice flour.

In 2007, she and husband Howard Birch used their life savings to open Sherry Lynn’s Gluten Free Bakery, a cafe, take-out and roadside stand. A year later, the building they were leasing flooded and was condemned. That’s when the Birch’s expanded. They took a five-year lease on a vacant storefront at 836 Troy-Schenectady Road in Latham. On March 21, Sherry Lynn’s Gluten-Free Bakery and Cafe opened for business.

Louise Sans Gluten

Louise’s story
I have always been a food addict. I just plain love food and everything about it. I actually thought I was pretty knowledgeable about the whole food thing until the time when my food world was turned upside down. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. Little did I know this was going to be the start of a new challenge!
I quickly found out that I knew very little about something that is present in so many things we eat; gluten. Celiac disease is characterized by the inability to digest gluten. We must avoid all gluten in order to remain healthy. And this is where my quest began.

The very first thing I did when I was diagnosed (after a good cry) …

The Story

Haven on Earth Bread & Bakery Co.

A dedicated gluten free bakery

Everyone has a favorite Bakery, you know one where just thinking about it makes your mouth water? You know that “to die for moment” when it’s just you and the donut against all the stresses of the day. It is comfort and just plain good food. Mine is where we go camping. It’s the first place we stop and the last place for just one more yummy treat before we go home. The best cookies, the yummiest donuts, special loaves of bread and those Eclairs in the cold case just before you pay, I know I have your mouth watering now. But why do I feel so yucky and bloated after I eat those harmless treats? Is it worth it? Of course it is until you hear the words “Celiac Disease” or Gluten intolerant. Now you realize that “Gluten” could actually begin killing you one bite at a time. Oh

! maybe just when I’m on vacation and then that familiar pain in your stomach is a rapid reminder that looking and smelling is all I will be doing in that luscious bakery.

After 20 years of doing without I walked into a “Gluten Free” bakery in Corvalis, Oregon and thought I was on vacation. I could eat anything in the store and be safe. It was a Haven for me. I felt like I was cheating or dreaming but that day I discovered a product that looked, felt and tasted like a “to die for moment”. I didn’t want to stop there , I wanted this for all my friends and people who I hadn’t even met yet who had the same limitations as me.

I had experienced over the years dry “emergency” bread (just in case I had to take a sandwich somewhere). I had even tried toasting it to make it a little more palatable but it wasn’t worth it. I had forgotten what good bread tasted like. That day in Oregon changed my mind about what “Gluten Free” could be like.

We are now opening a bakery here in Reno, Nevada with the help of the proven recipes of the Oregon store and now every day we can provide a fresh, good tasting and great textured bread as well as pastries, cookies, cakes and…for the rest of the list you’ll have to come in to our “Dedicated Gluten Free” facility for a look see and a free taste test.
