All About That GUT

In honor of the last day of Celiac Awareness Month, I’m discussing a topic that directly relates to celiac disease–gut health. Anyone who has been diagnosed with celiac disease should be aware of the importance of maintaining a healthy gut, which is sometimes easier said than done. Healing the lining of the gut from damage caused by previously…

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Happy Earth Day! To celebrate Earth Day, I decided to share a fun dessert recipe, which is perfect for today or any spring gathering, birthday party, bridal shower, etc.  I was in charge of planning my bestie’s bridal shower (MOH duties), and I chose to make this recipe for her garden-themed bridal shower a few weeks…

Acai Something Delicious and Nutritious

Acai something delicious and nutritious. Confused? Allow me to explain…acai is pronounced ah-sah-EE, which sounds like “I see.” So, acai (I see) something delicious and nutritious. I bet you’re thinking acai what you did there. Ok, I’ll stop now with the bad puns. But for real, what I see is an acai bowl, which is amazing…

Sunday Spotlight #3

So, remember when I said that I was going to post an edition of “Sunday Spotlight” every Sunday? Well, clearly I didn’t think that one through. You may have noticed that I didn’t post about any gluten-free products last week, but I did post a recipe for a killer green smoothie. Since I typically only…

Shamrock Smoothie

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Wanna know how this Irish gal is getting into the holiday spirit? With a green smoothie, of course! Irish or not, anyone can enjoy this nutrient-dense smoothie. It is packed with spinach, which gives the smoothie a nice green color and provides a good source of iron, folate, vitamin A, and much more….

Sunday Spotlight #2

Hello followers! Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! As promised, here is my second edition of the newest feature on my blog where I showcase some of my favorite gluten-free finds. This week I will be sharing GoMacro MacroBars. These bars are gluten free (obviously), vegan, organic, and made with non-GMO ingredients. The High Protein varieties can have up…

Sunday Spotlight #1

While there are occasionally some gluten-free products that we may stumble upon that are less than desirable, we have to admit that these items have come a longggg way in terms of flavor and palatability. Now, there are so many GF products to choose from that it can be hard to find the best ones on the market. So, I…

P.S. (& Co.) I Love You

This weekend I had the privilege of eating brunch at P.S. & Co. in Philadelphia.  Since it can be challenging to find a delicious and safe gluten-free meal, I have gotten used to looking up restaurant menus and planning my meal ahead of time. Trust me, this time was no different. I literally analyzed the menu…

New Year, Same Goals

Well, it’s safe to say that 2016 was not my best year. I’ll spare y’all the details. (Y’all? Pretty sure I’ve never lived in the south before, but occasionally a southern accent randomly comes out and it just feels right. Like now, for example.) Anyway, I’m determined to make 2017 my best year yet. I’ve been reflecting…

A Gluten-Free Safe Haven

Happy New Year! Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays! Last week, my parents and I took a post-Christmas day trip to NYC to hang out with all of the lingering tourists. While in the Big Apple, we checked out the oversized Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center and saw the Rockettes perform an awesome show at Radio…

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Quinoa for breakfast?? Yes, please!! If you haven’t jumped on the quinoa bandwagon yet, what are you waiting for? Quinoa is naturally gluten free and has a nutty, slightly bitter taste on its own, but I find that it tends to take on whatever flavor it is mixed with. I’ve been on a quinoa kick…

Warm and TOAST-y

Well, it’s Tuesday so you know what that means—time for another Toast Tuesday creation! On this particularly chilly morning, I decided to make a breakfast that would have me feeling all warm and TOAST-y (get it?!). I simply toasted a slice of GF Canyon Bakehouse Cinnamon Raisin Bread, spread it with SunButter Sunflower Butter, and topped it…
