Recipe: Gluten free rice noodle salad with chicken and herbs

Randi_Markowitz, Houston, TXFood and Wine.

This is an easy-to-make, delicious entree that is gluten-free, inexpensive and fantastic. It’s as good as any dish I have had in any Thai or Vietnamese restaurant in the Houston area. Do not fear the Asian fish sauce…it adds lots of flavor, and it is easy to find in the Oriental foods section of just about any grocery store.

Redbridge gluten-free beer has been reformulated


Redbridge gluten-free beer seemed to be a thing of the past earlier this year.  All of a sudden it disappeared from grocery stores shelves.  Tiffany Janes at Celiac-Disease.com reported that after speaking with a representative from Anheuser-Busch, she confirmed that the beer was being reformulated, not discontinued.

It seems the beer was too high in alcohol to be sold in every state.  The beer was reformulated to contain only 4% alcohol instead of 4.7%.  This now allows the beer to be sold in all 50 states.

Reformulated grilled chicken at Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A-logo-big

On April 14, Chick-fil-A introduced new and improved grilled chicken breast and nuggets to its lineup. This new grilled chicken is infused with a smoky taste by marinating it in a blend of sea salt, lemon, garlic, and savory herbs. According to the company, this technique creates a tender, juicy filet with just the right amount of smoky flavor.

According to the company, they spent seven years and more than $50 million to reinvent its grilled chicken recipe. The largest portion of the investment came as the company worked with Garland Grills to create a proprietary grill. This new grill sears the chicken on cast-iron grates like it was cooked on a backyard grill, only faster.

We wanted a grilled chicken recipe that is just as ‘craveable’ as our original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich.” Read More »

Refuel with Homemade Electrolyte Drinks

Do you remember the first time you drank Gatorade?

I do! I was at a track and field meet. After the race, my coach passed me a bottle of Gatorade and told me to drink it to avoid feeling sick.

The neon color should have been enough to raise a red flag, but I drank it anyway. 5 minutes later I felt like I’d been hit by a truck. Sugar overload! I could feel the  Read More »
