Gluten free soft pretzelsThere is just something about a warm, soft pretzel that reminds me of my youth.  Watching the Cubs play at Wrigley Field, enjoying the circus, or attending an amusement park just seemed better when you munched on a pretzel. Thanks to the good folks at Kim and Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels now there is a frozen gluten-free pretzel to fill the void. (more…)

Gluten-free tacosWe shop at Trader Joe’s at the Forum about once a week and we are always scanning the aisles to see what gluten-free products we can find.  On a recent trip we discovered their taco seasoning mix.  It has a ‘g’ on the front of the package and it is only .79 cents a pack, so we decided to give it a try.

Real Gluten Free Foods

“Real Food” can be defined as natural, unprocessed, traditional and nourishing foods that human have always eaten. This includes things like whole fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices, fish and seafood, and animal protein.

Listed below is the gluten-free news this Examiner has heard about this past week.
