Review: Kashi Indigo Morning Cereal

Late last week I discovered Kashi now had two cereals that are gluten-free. I quickly put them both on my grocery list so I could sample and review for you guys. When I was at Meijer on Maxtown Rd. yesterday, I spotted the Kashi Indigo Morning cereal.

I couldn’t wait to dig into this for Monday morning breakfast. While Mondays are usually my day off, they are usually busy and there is nothing like a bowl full of yumminess to help shake off the “Mondays”.

I poured some Silk Vanilla Almondmilk + Protein & Fiber over the Indigo Morning cereal. I can’t begin to explain how much I like this cereal!  Crunchy with berries and just a kiss of sweetness.  

What is your favorite gluten-free cereal?

National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day

Today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Hannah told me that I was only saying that because I eat PB & J daily, but while that may be true, today is definitely the right day. I wasted no time preparing my lunch and getting down to business.

*PS…Don’t forget to enter to win the Tyson Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets and Chicken Breast Strips giveaway!

Tyson ® Chicken Nuggets and Chicken Breast Strips + Giveaway

Finding quick gluten-free food items on busy weeknights is a constant battle, especially with picky eaters. Both of my children are extremely picky eaters so this is a struggle we face often. Tyson Foods now offers Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets and Gluten-Free Chicken Breast Strips that have the same great taste kids love, but without the gluten.

I like to keep a bag of each on hand in the freezer, as they can be easily prepared by my kids in the microwave in under 5 minutes. This really helps us out on nights where I have clients in the evening and Dad is working late. Hannah enjoys these just as much as the “real” chicken nuggets she eats, and she doesn’t have to eat gluten-free. These aren’t just for kids, I enjoy Tyson® Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets from time to time, too.

Review: Glutino New & Improved White & Multigrain Bread

Gluten-free bread is not easy to perfect. Often times the gluten-free bread that is found in grocery stores is small in size and crumbly. Glutino fans loved their bread, but they have made it even better! The White and Multigrain breads got a recipe and packaging makeover.

These loaves of bread arrived on my [...]

Switch to Turkey

Over the past few years I have been gradually switching over to ground turkey from ground beef. We still eat ground beef on occasion, especially for burgers, but when I make tacos, lasagna or the like, I use ground turkey.
