Gluten-Free Girls Need Red Apple Lipstick!

June 10th, 2013 by Christie Bessinger


gluten free lipstickFor us Gluten-Free girls, it's a little more difficult to shop for makeup, because we have to make sure all of our cosmetics are GF as well! Thankfully, a lot of companies are developing some amazing GF make-up products. This week I got to try this fabulous lipstick from Red Apple Lipstick - a company who's products are all GF, Soy-Free, Lead-Free, Enriched with VITAMIN E (woo-hoo!) and Paraben-Free. It is definitely the highest quality GF Lipstick I have found. It's safe and 100% non-toxic. One of the reasons I love being gluten-free, is it has made me more aware of toxins in popular brands of makeup.Since going GF, I've been on the look-out for safe, quality GF brands of make-up, and I have to say that Red Apple is one of my new favorites!

The Best of G-Free Grab & Go

June 7th, 2013 by Cheryl Harris, MPH, RD, LD

gluten free kind barsI’m a huge fan of naturally gluten-free food. It’s usually healthier, usually cheaper, and IMHO, usually tastier, too. There are so many ways to go g-free quick and easy, and I highlighted a bunch in last month's newsletter, with tips from a variety of gluten-free bloggers.

And yet…there are so many reasons packaged foods do come in handy from time to time, whether it’s because of job demands, travel, outdoor activities that prevent easy access or you just need to have something shelf-stable and portable in the car in case of emergency.

So…in honor of Celiac Disease Awareness month in May, I put together a list of healthier options among packaged products, with an eye out towards

I was enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon with my daughter who was grounded and couldn't watch her normal shows. We sat down together to watch Food Network to find Dean McDermott on an episode of Guy's Big Bite. Dean McDermott has celiac disease, so I was shocked to see him sample dishes that contained gluten.

Surviving a Gluten Free Life

June 3rd, 2013 by Patricia Middendorf

Gluten Free is heard everywhere nowadays.  It’s seems to be as popular as the vegan diet years ago.

Unfortunately gluten free is not a fad, or a diet, it is a way of life for those with Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivity.

gluten free livingThose of us, including myself, need to check everything that we eat which can honestly be a royal pain, but the good news is that most places are gluten aware.  There are those hole in the wall places in the middle of nowhere that we can never find anything to eat, but we can always pack a snack.

The first time that you go grocery shopping or out to eat can be overwhelming after being told that you

I am on a mission this year to get in shape and to become healthier. I’m doing this for several reasons but one in particular is that if I plan to become an RD I need to be healthy – no one, including myself wants to take advice about health and wellness from someone who is not healthy and practicing what they are preaching.

One of the biggest things that I have found is really being conscious of

This recipe for Potato Salad with Fresh Green Beans and Tarragon Dressing is not made with mayonnaise. That means it is a safer salad choice for picnics and cookouts. Bacon and a fabulous fresh tarragon dressing make this recipe a real crowd favorite.
