Believe it or not, the gluten-free trend is here to stay and with more and more people choosing to cut wheat from their diets, more and more restaurants are adding GF choices to their daily menus.

While most restaurants have just one or two items, these nine restaurants offer extensive selections for our gluten free friends. Check out who made our list:

Green/Nami -- Gluten free is no problem for the kids at our favorite vegan comfort restaurant and neighboring coffee shop. Ask them for their special wheat free menu, which features tasty bowls of organic rice topped with mock chicken and fresh veggies in savory sauces or an order of their awesome "wings" (yep, they're GF!). Weekend GF brunch is served every weekend at Phoenix's only vegan coffee shop, Nami, and they also have a handful of gluten free baked goods on hand daily.

North Fattoria Italiana -- If you thought gourmet pasta was off limits, then think again. Chef Chris Curtiss at Sam Fox's kitschy North in Arcadia will make any of his tasty pasta dishes with gluten free pasta for just $2 extra. Try the simple, yet satisfying Bucatini with big chunks of ripe tomatoes, sweet basil, and olive oil or the Mafaldine with spicy rock shrimp, shaved fennel, tomato, and basil. And for dessert, try North's luscious Salted Carmel Budino with fresh creme fraiche.

24 Carrots
24 Carrots -- Chandler's (soon to be Tempe's) best spot for fresh juices and vegan fare is also Chandler's best spot to eat gluten free. The easy to navigate menu is packed full of gluten free breakfast and lunch items including scrambles, breakfast bowls, sandwiches, quesadillas, and even tacos. The little shop bakes up a gluten free treat or two every once in awhile, but we like to tame our sweet tooth with one of their naturally sweet smoothies (which are also GF).

With me it's not just a trend, having celiac disease it's a necessity. Glad to see these and more!
