apple-pieIt's pie time! Wrap up your holiday feast with one (or more!) of our tasty pies. We have vegan offerings and wheat-free, too.

November is here and you know what that means: pie, pie, PIE! We will be offering a wide variety for your Thanksgiving holiday table! For vegan shoppers, we have Peach Raspberry, Blueberry Crumb, Apple Cranberry Walnut, and Pumpkin. Non-vegan varieties are Coconut Cream, Chocolate Cream, Southern Pecan, Chocolate Pecan, and Pumpkin. We'll be selling the pies on a first-come, first-served basis at both stores, but we're happy to announce that this year we'll be taking special orders for wheat-free pies (and only wheat-free pies). These special orders will be subject to our production schedule, and need to be placed by Friday, Nov. 21, so start planning today! If you'd like to inquire about the production schedule or have any other questions, please give us a call at the Central Kitchen at 607.273.5069, between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm. Happy holidays!

GreenStar's Bakery Expands Wheat-Free Offerings

By Kristie Snyder,

wheat-free-dessertsYou know a diet is popular when a Google search returns over 12 million results, as it does for "gluten free diet." Compare that with "vegan diet," which turns up a paltry 2.6 million. It's clear that people are increasingly avoiding wheat products and gluten, the stretchy protein found in wheat and many of its relatives. Many who avoid gluten have been diagnosed with celiac disease, in which gluten consumption can cause intestinal inflammation and damage the lining of the intestines. Others experience wheat allergies or intolerances, which can lead to a host of symptoms.

Ten years ago, finding gluten- or wheat-free baked goods could be a real challenge, and finding ones that tasted good proved even more difficult. But a trip to GreenStar's bakery case today yields over two dozen delicious wheat- or gluten-free options.
