Fresh First: 100% Gluten Free in Fort Lauderdale

Once upon a time people ate meat and potatoes, and were absolutely fine with it.

Then we learned about heart disease, celiacs, dairy-allergies, the industrial farming system, and all the other issues stemming from our "standard American diet." (SAD)

While awareness of dietary issues still has a way to go, it's on the rise and we're starting to see more shops and restaurants that cater to those who have special alimentary needs.

Fresh First is Fort Lauderdale's first place to earn the recognition of "Great Kitchen" by National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA), and it caters to diets and lifestyles of all shapes and sizes.
