create a community where users, "never have to feel alone, awkward, or a burden because you are gluten-free.". At Grand Velas Riviera Maya gluten-free pancakes, waffles, muffins, cereal and bread loaves are offered, says Executive Chef Eric de Maeyer. It seems that GlutenfreeSingles is less an attempt for gluten-free individuals to avoid wheat-eating potential partners, and more a response to marginalization they have experienced - in dating and beyond. Guests staying at one of Wyndham Vivas seven all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic, Mexico and the Bahamas can contact a guest service representative two weeks before arrival to request gluten-free options. There are some products and services developed specifically for gluten-free individuals that make perfect sense, like gluten-free food brands, restaurants and cookbooks.

With notice in advance of a guests stay, the resorts can also order specific items such as gluten-free beer, which is not readily available in the Caribbean. He also points out that separate preparation areas and utensils are used to prevent cross-contact with gluten-containing ingredients. Both resorts have several AAA Four Diamond-rated restaurants on site.
Those needs and preferences are communicated to managers and sous chefs directly to ensure that no information is missed. Seven restaurants at Grand Velas Riviera Maya serve gluten-free dishes, each marked on the restaurants regular menus, while all gourmet restaurants at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit have gluten-free icons that guests can identify while dining. Paul Bauer, group manager for food and beverage standards at Sandals Resorts International, the parent company of Beaches and Sandals, says virtually any dish can be made gluten free, including breads, pizzas, pastas and desserts. But do people leading gluten-free lifestyles really need their own dating website? Having a dietary need in common with someone will definitely make choosing a date spot easier, but it doesn't necessarily ensure authentic compatibility. The creators of, glutenfreeSingles, a dating website for - you guessed it -gluten-free singles, believes they. He notes that the menus at each resorts restaurant have icons indicating which items are gluten free, and service staff members are trained to ask guests if they have any food allergies or special dietary requirements before taking orders. According to its website, GlutenfreeSingles was created for users who, "have celiac disease, are gluten intolerant or choose to be gluten free for health reasons" because "relationships last longer when partners have similar lifestyle needs and common interests.".
"I'm no statistician, but I'd say it's damn near impossible to find a match if the dating pool isn't filled to the brim with nearby single people.". It's undoubtedly beneficial for any "outsider" group to find a community of peers, but it remains questionable whether one's dietary preferences or requirements are a useful basis for finding a romantic partner. The representative will notify the resorts specialty restaurants of the dietary requirement and advise the chef at the main buffet restaurant so that gluten-free choices are on hand. Food stations throughout the resort have gluten-free hamburger buns, pizza crusts and French fries available daily, and the food service staff uses dedicated cookware and utensils to prepare gluten-free foods in a separate processing area, he says. But a growing number of all-inclusive resorts are making it a reality by catering to gluten-free guests. Each resort has more than half-a-dozen themed restaurants, which offer meals ranging from Southwestern tapas to pan-Asian cuisine. Let us know in the comments!
