    Hey, thanks so much for publishing this list. I have gluten intolerance and have been GF for only 2 weeks. Then ate at Cafe Rio yesterday (on the way home from a road trip so I didn’t have access to computer or planning) and felt terrible all day afterward. That amazes me. But it’s so valuable for those of us on a GF diet to share this info with each other. Thanks again!!
