.Sista Sandwich Allows Gluten-Free Diners to Grab and Go

Laura Tucker was tired of tubs of yogurt and plastic baggies filled with almonds — tired of the sad little snacks she always had to tote around, ever since a gluten-free diet cured her of the stomach ailments that had plagued her for the better part of two decades.

Like many gluten-free eaters, Tucker was a snack-carrier by necessity. Out in the world, she just never knew if she would be able to purchase something substantive to eat — whether in a restaurant or in a convenience store or in the Starbucks where she sat with her sister, Sharon Pearlstein, one day in the fall of 2011, lamenting how lunch was, once again, yogurt and nuts, when all she really wanted was a sandwich.
