Toulouse = gluten-free/allergyfriendly heaven

IMG_8151After haveing some trouble with finding gluten-free food in Nancy and Paris I was well prepared for the trip to Toulouse. However it seemed like It was not necessary at all!

There were several grocery-stores that had some gluten-free food, like Biocoop and Monop (the same as I found in Paris), but the very best was “Parapharmacie Lafayette”, 10 boulevard de Strasbourg, close to the metro station Jean Jaures.

IMG_8261They had the usual brands as we have at home, but also lots of other brands I have never seen before. There were several shelves and I think, for a little while at least, I was in gluten-free heaven! However I didn’t buy much as I didn’t need anything, but I bought some boxes with “Le Pain des Fleurs” crackers. We have them at home, but they are so expencive I don’t bother to buy them. Here it was half the price so I am planning on stocking up some more to fill my suitcase!

I also bought some seasonings as I found “massala-mix” without onion and garlic in another shop, unfortunately I don’t remember the name of the store, but it was the grocery-store next to the Parapharmacie Lafayette, something with “International….”.

If you are stuck there are lots of sushi-restaurants and even two Mc. Donalds, but I take it that most restaurants have “beef and French fries” if you ask.
