Yoga Sprouts Day Camp - Burlington

Jemma Ermellini of The Naked Sprout (a sister company to Chrysalis Yoga) and Deborah Gemus  are offering a unique Kids Camp experience ideal for any kids ages 6-11, who suffer from celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.  

Our facility is Vegan, Raw and completely gluten free! There is no risk of cross-contamination.  Hamilton Magazine recently named The Naked Sprout "Best New Restaurant".

We have planned a healthy, active and very "veg-ucational' day that combines both nutrition and movement.  In the AM, kids will be whipping up all kinds of delicious and nutritious foods, with an emphasis on fun.  In the afternoons, they will be doing yoga-related activities and crafts.

The camp runs July 9-13, with options to do full week, full day, and half day.  Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are included in the price of the camp.

We especially want to spread the news to folks in the Hamilton/Burlington/Milton/Oakville area to let them know about this camp, and hopefully inspire other yoga studios and Gluten-free restaurants across the country to team up and do something health related for kids in summer and March Break timeframes.

Please see poster and / or contact Jemma or Deborah at anytime. 

Best regards,
Deborah Gemus

Rock Cod Café Launches Celiac Summer Menu!

Just one meal at the Rock Cod Café in Cowichan Bay, BC and you’ll spoil your appetite forever with amazingly good food. BIG food. And friendly, personal service you simply won’t find anywhere else. That’s why one time visitors become regulars. And regulars become family. Small wonder, eating at the Rock Cod Cafe can quickly move from a habit to a ritual.

Your health and enjoyment are important to us. When we prepare celiac-friendly meals, we use clean, separate pans, separate flippers, a separate cutting board and employ good hand washing techniques to minimize the risk of cross contamination. Our waitstaff can advise you on which salads and asian bowls are suitable and our chefs can prepare salmon, halibut, cod, prawns, steak and chicken as you like for an excellent dining experience. At the Rock Cod Café, we believe how you are served is just as important as what you are served!! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Serving Strongbow Cider year round and Merridale Ciders to suit the season!

You can often smell the crisp ocean air from our beautifully designed O Bistro’s patio, so it’s no surprise that our focus is on dynamic West Coast cuisine. Our menu is created from the freshest local ingredients and served in a setting that reflects the hotel’s stylish, modern aesthetic. 
Enjoy the warmth and glow of the stone fireplace in the cooler months, or dine al fresco on our patio when the weather’s warm. Our intimate Lounge is a casual option for sipping a cocktail or a fine local wine or beer. The live entertainment is local, too.
