National Grilled Cheese Day–Gluten-Free Style

Who doesn’t like a cheesy, gooey grilled cheese sandwich?  You may choose to stick with the childhood favorite basic version or venture into more gourmet versions.  There is no better way to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day – April 12th – so here was my lunch:

I had plans to make a Caprese Style [...]

Review: Sambazon Superfood Smoothie & Juice Blends

It is always hard for me to figure out meals and fueling when I have evening workout classes.  The classes always seem to fall around 6:30, so for me I would have to eat dinner at 4:30ish if I wanted to eat before or wait until after 8 PM.  I have found on days where [...]

Since the temperatures are finally inching their way up, it is time to start thinking about picnic season. Everyone loves a picnic, right? I remember going on picnics on Sundays after church when I was little and we lived in Texas. I am not sure if it was one picnic or many to that specific [...]

Review: Red Apple Lipstick

When I first got the call from my doctor that I would need to start following a gluten-free diet, the last thing that crossed my mind was having to check my cosmetics for the presence of gluten.  Seriously?  Didn’t I have enough on my plate?  Yes, seriously.  Red Apple Lipstick helps simplify things a little [...]

Gluten-Free Protein-Packed Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I am sure you have heard that before, right?  I used to skip breakfast and looking back now, I don’t know why I did that or how I made it through the morning.  Now wonder I was starving my 11:00 AM!  Now that I am older [...]

If you have been reading my blog for any period of time, you know I love my salads. I eat small spinach salads with lunch and then a larger salad with dinner or sometimes as my dinner.  My dinner salads are more than just lettuce and a few extra veggies tossed in – I love [...]

Little Soya Soy Sauce Giveaway

Did you know not all soy sauce is gluten-free? It is one of those things that we don’t think of right off the bat as possibly containing gluten. If you have been following the gluten-free diet for any period of time, you are aware that some varieties are brewed with wheat, but there are a [...]

Thai Kitchen Giveaway

Do you like Thai food? I don’t think I had really given it much of a shot until I started the gluten-free diet and I had to open my mind to new foods. While I had expanded my taste palate as I aged, Thai food was just one of those things that I hadn’t sampled. [...]

Review: Udi’s Gluten-Free Plain Tortillas

I knew it was only a matter of time before Udi’s Gluten-Free launched gluten-free tortillas. They’ve really cornered a large part of the gluten-free baked goods/bread market in the past few years. Gluten-free tortillas have been available for a while, but there is something really special about the new tortillas from Udi’s. Yes, they still [...]
