Gluten-free Super Bowl Recipe Round Up

February 2nd, 2011 by Jennifer Harris

Since the Super Bowl is this weekend, it seems fitting to round up all of the gluten-free recipes this Examiner can find.  We used to have fun hosting Super Bowl parties, but have since taken to just a quiet gathering.  When we hosted, some of my favorite dishes to prepare were: deviled eggs, seven layer dip, veggie tray, homemade dips (hot and cold), chili, wings from Allergy Free Foods, chicken nuggets from Applegate Farms, and brownies. Keep the menu simple and limit it to things you are comfortable preparing. No need to get stressed out on such a fun day of sports, commercials and of course gluten-free food.

Here are links to gluten-free Super Bowl recipes: (more…)

Stand Up for Your “Gluten-free” Self!

January 31st, 2011 by Jennifer Slack

Interesting experience over this past weekend.  I went to a restaurant that offers gluten free pizza and buns and inquired with the bartender if they had gluten free beer. 

He proceeded to inform me that there is no such thing as gf beer because gf beer isn’t REAL beer and was a bit jerky about the whole thing.  He informed me that he brews his own beer, so he knows what real beer is. 

I was quite offended at this response, as I was ordering gluten free beer out of necessity, not out of (more…)

Top 10 Ways to Eat Gluten-free Safely for the Holidays

November 17th, 2010 by Jen Cafferty

1)  Never assume.  Just because your host knows you're on a special diet doesn't mean they understand the nuances of your lifestyle.  Ask to see packages of foods before you eat them.

2)  Bring a protein-based dish to your next gathering.  That way, you know there will be something safe to eat, and you won't be hungry.  Click here for a Holiday (more…)

Smoothie King Offers Gluten-free Choices

September 20th, 2010 by Kimberly Bouldin

The idea for Smoothie King started back in the late 1960's in the home of Steve Kuhnau.  Kuhnau was trying to remedy his allergies and low blood sugar and began to experiment with blending fruits, nutrients and proteins in a blender.  In 1973, Kuhnau opened a health food store selling his smoothies & vitamins and Smoothie King was born.  Smoothie King has grown to over 600 locations in the US and Seoul, Korea.  Smoothie King's mission is "To relentlessly influence and help more & more people achieve a healthier lifestyle."   (more…)

Breakfast is one of the easiest meals to make at home, but it also the one this Examiner used to enjoy ordering out.  It seems now that breakfast is the one meal with limited gluten-free choices, so we tend to eat this meal at home.  Who can afford to spend more than $10 for eggs, bacon and potatoes when they can be prepared at home for a fraction of the cost. 

Brunch menus tend to vary, but when we go out to brunch we are looking for more than just egg dishes, meat, potatoes and fruit.  A traditional brunch menu should offer a gluten-free version of what you would normally expect: pancakes, toast, French toast, eggs Benedict, (more…)

Arby’s offers up gluten-free menu

August 16th, 2010 by Kimberly Bouldin

Over the past few years more & more restaurants have been adding gluten-free menus to their repertoire.  This is a much welcomed change to people who have had to follow the diet for any period of time.  Simply being able to order off of the menu and not bring food in from the outside is a pleasure.  

Arby's is the latest establishment in this explosion of gluten-free menus.  Arby's has multiple meat items, several salads, drinks & even shakes on the menu.  The French fries and potato cakes are off limits due to cross-contamination issues; sharing the deep fryer with chicken fingers, chicken patties and mozzarella sticks makes them unsafe.
