Review: The Gluten Free Bar

Usually I reserve protein bars for refueling after a hard workout or run, but I always keep one in my purse for emergency hunger attacks.  Sunday I took Hannah and her friend to see The Avengers, good movie, but a little too long (2 hours 22 minutes to be exact).  We all know that typical [...]

Review: Funky Monkey Snacks

I had the opportunity to review some pretty cool snacks recently.  Funky Monkey Snacks (love the name!) are real fruit snacks made using a proprietary freeze-drying process that creates “Fruit that Crunches” while retaining close to all of fruit’s natural goodness.  It is no secret that I love fruit, so I couldn’t wait to [...]

First and foremost, how cute are these snacks? Okay, so I am getting close to being 40, but I can still act like a [...]

Review: Blueberry Hemp Superfood

I am always trying to make an effort to eat cleaner, naturally gluten-free food. Not only does my body feel better when I eat like this, but my brain does as well. By choosing foods that are naturally gluten-free, there is no deciphering of labels, just eat and enjoy.

Navitas Naturals has some pretty awesome [...]

Update: ZonePerfect Perfectly Simple Bars

Last week I wrote about the new ZonePerfect bars that I found at Target with the “gluten-free” label on them. I sent an email asking about oats to ensure that they were gluten-free and to see which certification company Abbott was using.

This is the response I received:

Hello Kim,

I just wanted to [...]

Review: Brad’s Raw Chips

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to sample & review some fantastic products from Brad’s Raw Chips. I first tried kale chips almost three years ago. I saw them on another blog and decided to dive in and make them myself. A year or so later, I sampled some pre-made kale chips and fell in [...]

Review: Mary’s Gone Crackers

Mary’s Gone Crackers is one of the companies that has been around since I first began the gluten-free diet in 2006. At that time they only made crackers, but they now have expanded their product line to include cookies, “sticks & twigs” and crumbs. In addition to being gluten-free, Mary’s Gone Crackers products are also [...]

Review: Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars

A few weeks ago I received some fruit bars from Betty Lou’s to sample & review. I thought these would be perfect for Jon to have as a snack, but he turned his nose up at them without tasting them the first time I offered them. I asked him how he could say he [...]

Review: Popcorn Indiana Limited Edition

I had the pleasure of receiving two of the four limited edition flavors from Popcorn Indiana to review on Friday.  The caramel popcorn and the dark fudge chocolate chip kettlecorn arrived just before dinner time, so I sat it nicely on the counter, resisting temptation to skip dinner & dive right in.

Review: Rise Bars

It is no secret that I am a fan of energy/protein bars.  I like portable food for times when I am in a hurry or need to refuel after a workout.  When I first started the gluten-free diet over 6 years ago, the choices for gluten-free bars were few & far between.  There were [...]
