Healthy Lunch Challenge

April 8th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill


When I was asked to create an example of a healthy gluten-free lunch for the ladies of Easy Lunch Boxes and Crunch a Color, I jumped at the chance. It was easy for me because this is what I (try to) do 5 days a week.elb crunchcolor lunch

Peanut Butter & Jelly Quesadilla Wrap Up!

March 13th, 2013 by Candice Rose Clifford

By the title of this post, I am sure many of you are probably wondering what I have in store for you today, but trust me, it’s a good little invention on my part!

PB-J-Quesdilla-Wrap-up--1024x682

Lately I am trying to limit my consumption of gluten-free bread products; not with the intention to lose weight, but rather I have realized that I feel better when I keep it to a limit. However, being someone who is always at the gym I need carbs in my diet to reenergize.

The other day I really want a PB & J sandwich. My only problem was I didn’t (more…)

One Dish, Three Meals – Mexican Style!

November 14th, 2012 by Candice Rose Clifford

I have never viewed being on a gluten and dairy-free diet as restrictive. Of course there are many foods I can’t have, but there are many more foods I can enjoy. However, more so than I did before I went gluten-free I get in phases where I feel like I’m eating the same foods. This is especially true since I have had to restrict my diet even more due to acid reflux.

When my parents came up last time my mom brought me two 1lb containers of ground turkey. I had made a meatloaf with one and had been enjoying the frozen turkey burgers my mom had made, but with my last (more…)

The Perfect Gluten-Free Croissant Sandwich

November 5th, 2012 by Christie Bessinger

This recipe is identical to my Gluten-Free Cream Puffs, they are just made bigger and cooked for a little longer.

They make a perfect lunch for any day of the week, and are also great for formal events like weddings, baby showers, family dinners, and holiday parties!

Gluten-Free Parmesan Crusted Chicken Recipe

September 20th, 2012 by Petra Aitken

I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it.

The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time I cooked this recipe I therefore made my own breadcrumbs by blending a piece of frozen gluten free bread. It turned out really well, the chicken was very tender and it tasted awesome served with cornmeal mash (cornmeal mixed with milk and cheese) and stir fried vegetables.

Macaroni and cheese is a great comfort food. When I eat it, I remember those days when my mom would surprise us with her baked macaroni and cheese. This wasn’t just any macaroni and cheese, this was the real deal, made from scratch!

After starting the gluten-free diet, pasta dishes were a little tougher to make. Some pastas don’t hold up well to being cooked in boiling water and then baked. I have found that (more…)

Healthy Gluten-Free Tuna Salad Recipe

July 18th, 2012 by Christie Bessinger

This recipe is full of nutrients that are important to anyone living gluten-free. Tuna is a great source of iodine and iron, and avacado provides fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid. The tomato is full of Vitamins A and C, the onions add sulfur, and the cilantro contains Vitamin K and gives the salad it’s zesty taste. I hope you enjoy!

 

Vegan Creamy Ranch Quinoa Salad Recipe

Healthful Pursuit - Leanne Vogel

Did you have a good weekend?

Kevin and I had initially planned to go to Calaway Park, but it ended up raining all weekend so we decided to stay home and organize the house! Sounds much better than going to a theme park, right? *rolls eyes*

It’s amazing how much stuff a person can accumulate over the years, isn’t it? I was surprised to learn that we have 11 boxes of Christmas things – lights, decorations, stockings, etc. That’s more than we have boxes of books, or clothes! There’s something wrong with this picture, no?

Come Sunday afternoon, we had made two trips to the goodwill center, organized the basement, our offices and the garage, and were absolutely drop-dead starving! Kevin kept himself busy sorting through a box of old photos while I prepared a big salad for the two of us. We met in the living room just off the kitchen, sat on the floor with the dogs, and (more…)
