Lunchtime in DC – Green lentils and feta salad

Standard

This post is meant for all of you DC’ites that work or live in the downtown area of DC.  I work very close to the White House which is a great location with a number of different fast food style places to grab your lunch and head back to the office.  Unfortunately for those suffering from Celiac’s it is not that easy to grab lunch at places because a good number offer sandwiches only or are not that easy to to navigate around them preparing a gluten free lunch.

One place that I like not only because it is fairly healthy but also because it is a quick jaunt from my office is GStreet Food, located..TA DA on G Street.  Their exact address is: 1706 G Street, NW.  They have a salad area that is separate from where sandwiches are made so the risk of cross contamination is minimized but clearly not without possibility.  I like the food they offer because it is unique and flavorful not your every day run of the mill green salad with tomato and cucumber.   One of my favorite salads is a green lentil and feta with red onions on a bed of greens, the feta adds a nice creaminess to the texture of the lentils.  The owners and owners son are very happy to let you know if a soup may have flour in it or anything that would make it not gluten free, and a majority of their salads are gluten free.  Check out their menu on the webpage and you will see a good amount of salads a there is usually a soup or 2 that you can choose from.

This is a picture of my lunch today:  A green lentil and feta salad with black bean and sweet potatoes on a bed of greens. Yum!

About Gluten Free Girl In DC

I love to travel (my favorite countries are Spain and Morocco), I am going to attempt at becoming a master of SUP in 2012, camping and hiking especially in the desert are some of my favorite hobbies. Keeping up with my crazy Springer Spaniel, Gaia. I inherited Celiac Disease from my mother but not until I was 34 years old. My blog/website is dedicated to help those who have been diagnosed with the disease on how to live a 'normal' life without gluten. I try by adding homemade recipes, restaurants that I have been to that are GF friendly and suggestions on just how to be..with Celiac but be happy and healthy.
