All Things Gluten-Free

I am a chatter box this morning and no one else in my house is awake.  Because of that, I will put my thoughts down here.  Lucky you! 

There is a new warning out that I ran across last night on Twitter that I feel the need to get out.  I already shared on my Gluten-Free is Life Facebook, but just in case you don’t “Like” me there, I want to make sure you know: Advil Liqui-Gels are NOT gluten-free.  I know that I have taken these in the past and am not sure if this is a recent change to the gels or not.  Additionally, Advil Migraine is not gluten-free. 

Q:I am allergic to gluten. Is it all right for me to take this product?

A:Advil® Liqui-Gels® and Advil® Migraine and contain a wheat derivative, and are not gluten-free. You should check with your doctor if you have any concerns about taking this product.


Gluten-free swimmer Dana Vollmer won gold and set a new world record in the 100M butterfly!  Dana has also teamed with Crunchmaster as the crackers are a great gluten-free snack to help fuel her for her workouts!  Congrats Dana!  Dana shared her winning breakfast on Twitter:


Sounds like I need to give this breakfast a try!  From Dana’s Twitter feed:

My fav meal still- rice w/almonds, peanuts, sunflower seeds, peanut butter and milk! I ate this before my swim last night! #GF #eggfree

If memory serves me correct, Dana has another race today!  Go girl!

Have you been bumming when you saw the Nestle Crunch Thin Mint Bars?  Well, check this information out from NuGo Nutrition:

Ha – seems the NuGo Dark Mint Chocolate Chip bar is a lot healthier!  It’s when I see stuff like this that I am happy to be gluten-free.  What better way to refuel after a hard run or workout? 

I have a lot of stuff to do today, as I have been slacking a bit with all of the Olympic events that I have been watching.  So exciting!  Have a great day!!

    Thanks for the heads up (tho I can't take Advil, still good to know). Great about GF Olympian Dana Vollmer, wonderful to see GF can support that level of competition, love to get a peek at her nutrition approach!

  • I have taken Advil Liquid Gels nightly for a long time! I had no idea they weren't gluten free! Something to definitely look into!

  • Bad timing on my part! I just took my Advil PM Liquid Gel and THEN I clicked on this post! I wonder, I've been feeling a bit draggy in the mornings for quite awhile, not really waking up until I'm moving. Sometimes I still have to fight through some sleepiness even after being active, resisting naps. Not real big brain fog, but definitely feeling something. Drat! Thought they were safe!
