Imagine my surprise when I received a package from the awesome folks at Live Gluten Freely yesterday! The package I received was pretty much what you see here in the product boxes that can be ordered from the site & sent to a newly diagnosed friend or family member or as a pick-me-up.
I love the information sheet that was included in the box. The sheet provides all kinds of tips on starting the gluten-free diet, what to eat & what to avoid.
You all know about my love of Chex cereals, right? I was just thinking the other day how I needed to get some Honey Nut and here they showed up on my door step! The PB Cookie Lara Bar is one of my favorites, too!! And, while I was making fun of instant mashed potatoes on Facebook yesterday, I have been known to use these to thicken sauces or soups before when cooking gluten-free. It has been a long time since I have served them as potatoes, though. They also work very well as breading for chicken. It is nice to have them on hand.
See that cake mix & frosting? That will be turned into cupcakes for the boy’s 14th b-day party sleep over. Easy & great tasting. $10 says none of the kids know they are gluten-free unless they pick up on the fact that Jon is eating them. Hannah has already broken into the Fruit by the Foot for her snack today. She doesn’t get fruit snacks often, so she was in heaven.
Sending out a huge THANK YOU to General Mills & Live Gluten Freely for this great array of gluten-free foods. I am surprised I haven’t broken into that frosting yet!
If you want to order a box like this, go here and follow the directions. The cost is $24.99 + $9.99 shipping & handling.
