Take me out to the Ballgame

I  recently made the trek to the new Marlins Stadium to see the Phillies play the Marlins. As I was passing Sunlife Stadium, I was thinking this better be worth it! The drive was a little extra but the AIR CONDITIONING was so worth the extra time and miles it took to get there! To not sweat it out in the oppressive heat of summer!

The second thing that made it worth it is that Marlins Stadium is one of 30 ballparks across the country that have a gluten-free stand! (For a complete list see our friends over at Gluten Free Philly’s post on all of them)

While I have to say that the hot dog with a bun! (I havent had a bun in a long time) wasn’t the best thing I had ever ate – it certainly was way better than what I ate last year, an arepa (corn, corn flour with melted cheese patty for our fans that arent familiar with South American cuisine) that I had to settle for after much searching at sunlife stadium. Later in the 7th inning we went back downstairs and got a chocolate cookies (they also offering muffins too) the cookie had chia seeds and I felt like that it was a little too healthy, but it was good too.

Some other options they had and I think I might try next time is the Loaded Nachos – I noticed they were making them with Tostitos® Tortilla Chips that were labeled gluten-free. They were also making club sandwiches fresh. The entire stand is gluten-free so no worries about cross contamination.
