Sams Club Raw Whole Chickens Are Gluten Free

Sams Club raw whole chickens are gluten free. (Post below can be found at the gluten free weight watchers blog.)

I double checked the status of the raw whole chickens I buy. When I read the label yesterday it said the ingredients contain “chicken broth”. I know a lot of broths have gluten so I shot an e-mail to Pilgrim’s pride. Their website did have a listing of items that are gluten free but I did not see whole chickens.

It looks like they are GF (see below).

I know you might think I’m clever, but really, I’m not. Full credit goes to Lauryn Cohen, aka Bella Baker, who came up with this cute concept. Lauren is the queen of sweet and is known for her uniquely creative treats and crafts. She recently launched a holiday baking guide (entitled Sweet Gifts Holiday Baking and Crafting Guide– available nationwide) filled with innovative and delicious recipes for the holidays.

Lauryn was nice enough to share one of her creations with The Family Chef. In this recipe, she calls for a red velvet cupcake (you will find a gluten-free, no-dye recipe in my upcoming cookbook). You can always use a basic vanilla (gluten-free).

Here is her technique for making super cute holiday cupcakes for your friends or family. Read More »

Say What?! Those Crazy Gluten-Free Misconceptions

When it comes to the gluten-free diet there are crazy misconceptions out there… thanks to Hollywood and the media! Lets take some time to clear somethings up…OK?

Newsflash, GOING GLUTEN FREE WILL NOT CAUSE YOU TO LOSE WEIGHT!! If I had to guess people who lose weight after going gluten-free are eating healthier or have finally received a proper diagnosis! I’m not a medical professional but these are my thoughts based on some of my own experiences:

When I first went gluten-free I was so afraid of food that I stuck to the foods I knew were safe. This meant I was eating mostly foods that could be found around the perimeter of the grocery store.  Some people refer to this as clean eating, which in fact is better for your overall health & wellness. However, eliminating processed foods also decreases your caloric intake. This is why I dropped weight, which I might add was unintentional since I was already below average.

If you go gluten-free and load up on processed foods like most, it’s just as bad for you as if you were splurging on gluten containing food, or in most cases worse since gluten-free foods are higher in fat and sodium. Life is about balance. Enjoy a slice of cake, but remember to eat your fruits and veggies too.

Separate Gluten-Free Appliances: Are they necessary?

A question that many new gluten-free eaters ask themselves.

Do I really need to go out and buy a new toaster? Will I really get sick from crumbs?

The above questions are asked at the same time that the overwhelming feeling of what has my life become? starts to set in.

GlutenFree tester ToasterDo you have a dedicated gluten-free toaster? I do. I went out and got one the day I went gluten-free. If I was going to do this whole change my lifestyle thing, I was going to do it right. That’s just the kind of person I am though. I don’t half-*** anything, so I definitely wasn’t going to cut any corners as I got myself healthy. No way, no how.

But, not everyone feels the way I feel. Maybe they don’t get the same symptoms from gluten that I do, and see this all as a bunch Read More »

Seventy Percent of Canadians Support No Exemptions to Proposed Food Labelling Regulations for Allergic and Celiac Consumers

OTTAWA, Feb. 2 /CNW/ – Prime Minister Stephen Harper is being asked to act on the concerns of millions of Canadians with food allergies and celiac disease and listen to the advice of prominent national medical, consumer and health organizations and pass proposed federal food labelling regulations now.

According to Angus Reid Public Opinion, 67% of Canadians approve of the proposed rules so they apply to all food and beverage companies, while only 21% believe the government should change the proposed rules to exempt the brewery industry from Read More »
