Gluten Free Options at Syndey International Airport

October 11th, 2011 by Petra Aitken


Gluten free works author Petra Aitken

I was traveling to NZ earlier in the year and because I had chosen Air New Zealand’s seat + bag option I wasn’t going to get any food on the plane. I therefore searched the airport for morning tea (to have at the airport) and lunch (to take on the plane). I noticed that Black Tonic Espresso Bar had a selection of gluten free muffins and therefore decided on the raspberry one for morning tea. I was pleasantly surprised, it was moist and actually tasted pretty good!

Gluten-free Halloween Candy Lists and Recipes

gluten-free-halloween-candyHalloween is quickly approaching and it is important to take time to decorate the house, buy a costume, find gluten-free recipes to bake, and determine which candies are gluten free. We tend to give out gluten-free candies at our house because there are so many great ones from which to choose.  More and more companies are labeling their candy gluten free, but remember it is important to read the labels on all of the candy bags as ingredients do tend to change.

If you are in doubt of a specific candy’s status, go to the company’s website and check their gluten-free list, or you can call their 800 number for further clarification. Remember not all of these gluten-free candies are made in a dedicated facility, so be sure to read the disclaimer located on the package and make the choice that is right for your child.

Listed below are the gluten-free Halloween lists we found online. (more…)


gluten free glutaric acidHaley is the mother of 21 month old Wyatt, who was diagnosed with Glutaric Acidemia Type 1 (GA-1) through newborn screening. Doctors have been unable to explain why a gluten free diet seems to be making such a positive difference to his health. Here is Wyatt’s story…

Haley’s letter to Glutaric Acidemia Group:

I thought I would share some interesting news with you all, in case there is a child out there like my son. We started my son on a gluten free diet in April and since then, his glutaric acid and 3-hydroxy glutaric acid levels have (more…)

Clint Trickett Gluten Free Celiac DiseaseAt 6’2″ and just 165 lbs, Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett was consuming 4,500 calories a day earlier this summer to try to put on weight.

It wasn’t working.

“I had some blood work done, I had a biopsy,” Trickett said during a recent  meeting with Florida State beat writers. “And they said, ‘You have Celiac disease.’ And it started making sense.”

Trickett adopted a gluten-free diet and within a month started to see results.

“You just have to stay away from any kind of breaded food,” Trickett said. “Already I’ve seen two pounds a week gained. I’ve been putting on pounds ever since (more…)

rudis gluten-free breadRecently I was sent a sample of Rudi’s Gluten Free sandwich bread and was blown away. For the most part, I had given up enjoying bread since becoming gluten free. I have enjoyed gluten free bread at restaurants  but as far as making a sandwich at home or enjoying toast for breakfast, it just wasn’t happening at home. There just didn’t seem to be a gluten free bread that I thought was worth buying much less that I truly enjoyed.

I can now say, I’m back on the bread wagon, and loving it. Rudi’s offers original, multigrain and a cinnamon raisin bread, all of which exceeded my expectations. I tried all of them toasted and un-toasted and honestly, have no complaints. To make sure I wasn’t just overly excited by having free bread sent to my house, I made my fiance try them all too. He is not gluten free and (more…)

Gluten Free Maui Banana Bread Recipe

Gluten free Maui banana bread Amy Fothergill

When you go to Hawaii, more specifically Maui, it seems like there’s a checklist of what most people do or see like snorkeling, going to Haleakala, seeing a rainbow (maybe even a double!), attending a luau, and driving the road to Hana which includes consuming the famous banana bread from any one of a number of roadside stands.

On our way to Hana, we never made it to one of the roadside banana bread stands, mostly because they all had gluten in them. I did allow myself to taste one local batch from a grocery store in Ka’anapali because I was curious. The family also agreed it was delicious.

When I returned home, I was determined to recreate the same flavor but in a gluten-free variety. After doing some cross referencing, I decided to use (more…)

Review: Saffron Road – Gluten Free Frozen Entrees

September 27th, 2011 by Cinde Shields

Saffron Road Gluten FreeI am not usually a big fan of store bought frozen meals, however there are times when one of my family members needs a quick meal and there is no time to cook from scratch.  The gluten free entrees fromSaffron Road are one of the few store bought frozen entrees that I actually enjoy eating and feel good about feeding to my family.  I feel that Saffron Road’s frozen meals are a cut above the rest; check out a few of their FAQ’s and I am sure you will agree:

How does Saffron Road guarantee that its livestock are treated humanely?

We work with trusted, credible, third parties to certify that our livestock are treated humanely. Our chicken is Certified Humane® by the Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) and our lamb by the Global Animal Partnership.
