Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Spaghetti with Flax


Hodgson-Mill-Gluten-Free-Spaghetti-Flax

My wife and I recently found a new pasta we really enjoy. Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Spaghetti with flax seed tastes great and is easy to cook. Boil shorter for al dente and longer for Chef Boy R Dee consistency.

Getting enough omega-3 fatty acids is important, but can be a challenge. Supplements like fish oil are available, but can be difficult digest.

We like the flavor and the benefits of Read More »

PUR Mints Review and $10 Coupon


 

PUR Mints are Gluten and Aspartame Free! And DELICIOUS!!!

Thank YOU, Kendall!

HUGE shout out to Kendall and the PUR Team for sending us samples of their new PUR Mints: Tangerine Tango, Spearmint, Polar Mint, Peppermint and the one I am currently enjoying – Mojito Lime Mint. The mints are gluten-free, aspartame-free and yummylicious! (They are also vegan, nut & soy free, diabetic friendly and non-gmo!)

PUR really promotes the fact that they do not use aspartame to sweeten their products. That’s a good thing. Aspartame is made from genetically modified e-coli, their feces in fact, and I was told it was produced in the same facility as Agent Orange. YUCK! Aspartame gives me migraines, so I stopped eating it even before I found out it was made from bacteria dung.

Instead, PUR uses xylitol, which is pretty smart considering xylitol creates a cooling effect in your mouth. I really like how the packets reseal, so you can save some for later…unless you eat them like candy like I do.  (Mmm. I just crunched into a Peppermint.)

Thanks again, Kendall. The mints are fantastic. I’ll definitely be making PUR my go to mints.

Oh, and Kendall was nice enough to send us a $10 Coupon for our Gluten Free Works Members to use on PUR’s website. Considering they have products for $4.99, you’re looking at FREE STUFF! Woohoo!!! Just enter the coupon code in the image below.  Read More »

Coconut cream pops Expo West

Expo West is simply the best and the largest natural foods event in the United States. Each year the event grows in exhibitors and attendees and shows no signs of slowing down. One of the trends noted this year was the surge of vegan/gluten-free products, like bread, cheese, cheesecake, cookies, frozen desserts, macaroni and cheese, salad dressings, yogurt, etc.

Here are this Examiner’s top 20 gluten, dairy, and vegan product finds:

  • CoYo’s coconut milk yogurt hails from Australia and is made from coconut cream and natural flavors in four varieties: Natural, Mango, Mixed Berry, and Raw Chocolate. The berry and mango are incredibly creamy without a funny taste or texture and taste fantastic. This product debuted at Expo West 2014, but this was my first time trying it and color me impressed. Availability: In stores
  • Cosmo’s Dairy-Free Spicy Ranch is thick, rich, and mildly spicy. Made from coconuts, it works as a salad dressing, dip, and sandwich spread adding a nice kick to what would be ordinary. It does contain eggs, but is soy and nut free. Availability: Online for now
  • Daiya Foods, Inc. gets a nod for their new Cheezecakes and Cheezy Mac kits that are soy free and vegan. Available in three flavors, Deluxe Alfredo, Deluxe Cheddar, and Deluxe White Cheddar Veggie Medley, each kit comes with a bag of liquid cheezy sauce ready to be combined with cooked brown rice pasta.Their cheezecakes are also available in four flavors: New York, Chocolate, Key Lime, and Strawberry.

Pizza Hut Launches Udi’s Pizza Sales Today!


My fiancee and I like to cook. We like being healthy and since we hate unnecessary pain and suffering, we avoid cross contamination.  As a result, we tend to eat mostly healthy, tasty, homemade meals.

While we love cooking, we have busy lives and hate cleaning up. Every once in awhile we both wish we could just order a pizza.  In fact, we were just talking about it the other day.

Pizza Hut must have heard us talking because they just launched their Udi’s Pizza Sales today! And they deliver!

Here is what Pizza Hut posted on its website today:

For some time, we’ve seen you guys do all sorts of unique and inventive things to eat pizza. From your special homemade version to cauliflower crusts to zucchini pizza boats, we’ve been impressed with your pizza spirit. But we knew you were still missing out on the simple joy of ordering pizza and having it arrive at your door. So we got together with our friends at Pizza Hut and came up with a solution.

Since we’ve shared this announcement, we’ve been listening to all of your feedback. We’re so happy to see your interest and anticipation, but we’ve also been tracking your biggest concerns and questions. Here are answers to some of the most common questions we are seeing.

Product Review: So Delicious Dairy Free CocoWhip Is the Tops


So Delicious Dairy Free Coco WhipBack in the day it was impossible to keep a tub of Cool Whip in the house because it was irresistible to me plain (on the end of my finger) or on top of pudding, cake, pie, and ice cream. It wasn’t until later in life that ingredient choices became an issue and my beloved Cool Whip was deemed unsuitable. Tears were shed as a chapter of my life came to a close and desserts were no longer topped until So Delicious Dairy Free introduced CocoWhip.

CocoWhip, available in Original and Light, is made from organic coconut milk, it is naturally sweetened, and contains no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors. It is certified gluten free, vegan, and kosher parve, and Non-GMO Verified. CocoWhip ingredients are: Read More »

Alternative Baking Company Gluten Free Cookies

Alternative Baking Company Gluten Free Cookies

This product update is long overdue and it is just the tip of the ice berg when it comes to new gluten-free product launches in 2014. Expo West is just a few weeks away and I can’t wait to be overwhelmed by gluten-free products. Gluten free is slated once again to be one of the top diet trends in 2014 and that means more gluten-free products are being developed. Hopefully, these new products will trend towards health food and won’t be loaded with fillers, sugar, salt, and artificial color/flavors.

Here is the first new-to-me gluten-free products installment of 2014: Read More »
