Easy Lunchbox System Review and Giveaway

I cannot even BEGIN to tell you how thrilled I am with this lunchbox system!! Before I go into the specifics of the Easy Lunchbox System though, I need to vent. I kid you not, I am overflowing with lunchboxes and containers! I have never found a “one size fits all” solution to packing the […]

Jumping through the Pringles Loophole

popbox7

I know that Pringles (which are NOT gluten-free) as well as many other mainstream chips are just not good for you, you will get no argument from me on that one. However, raising a child with celiac disease can be very difficult when it comes to social situations, as any parent with a child that […]

Amy’s Gluten-Free Non-Dairy Mac and Cheese Review

amys-dairy-free-mac-and-cheese

So in case it hasn’t been made clear yet, I like trying new things. Especially when it comes to innovative food substitutions! I haven’t done a lot of dairy-free/vegan posts because I try to avoid straight-up soy when possible. My mom is a breast cancer survivor and I prefer to not eat plant estrogen, “just […]

Portable Gluten-Free Soy Sauce Containers

soy-sauce-containers

While there are several gluten-free soy sauces on the market, the biggest frustration (at least for me) is portability! The last time I carried a bottle of my favorite gluten-free soy sauce (San-J Organic Wheat-Free Reduced-Sodium Tamari) in my purse, I was the lucky sucker who had the bottle leak everywhere! Besides, it isn’t exactly […]

Gluten-Free “Lunchables”

Gluten-Free-Lunchable

I’ve succumbed to the almighty Lunchables.  I STRONGLY dislike those things, and not necessarily because they are one of the most unhealthy “foods” marketed to children, but because my son feels like an “oddball” because he cannot have one! I love GoPicnic’s Gluten-Free Ready-Eat-Meals (and so does Sam), but he recently confided in me that […]

Gluten-Free “Boxed” Mac and Cheese

gluten-free-boxed-mac-and-cheese

Okay, so it’s not really “Boxed” Mac and Cheese but “Bagged” Mac and Cheese just sounds weird! I have been making my own “Kraft-like” GF Mac and Cheese for a long time now, mostly because I do not care for the texture of the pasta in the GF store-bought Mac and Cheese.  The other two […]

Gluten-Free Chex Mix

gluten-free-chex-mix

I realize this is probably a no-brainer, but it actually just dawned on me not too long ago when Sam needed some Chex Mix for his “Friday Fun Snack,” that I could make my own gluten-free version!  So just in case it has not occurred to someone else, I thought I would post the recipe […]

Gluten-Free Lunch Box Finds

I was very excited to find a couple of things while at Costco the other day. Last summer, I found some Fruit Roll-Ups called Simply Fruit at Target, and bought a box. I was bummed when I went back for more and could not find them… anywhere! I was starting to think I had imagined […]

GoPicnic Ready To Eat Meals Product Review and Giveaway!!

Giveaways are intoxicatingly fun for me, especially when they are products that I absolutely love and that have made my family’s gluten-free life easier and infinitely better. It is difficult for me to rave about a gluten-free product on my blog and leave it at that. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a […]

Surf Sweets Organic and Natural Candy Review

A while back, I received a complimentary sampling of Surf Sweets Organic and Natural Gummy Candy and Jelly Beans to review on my blog. I have to admit, I received these back in December and I am embarrassed that I am just NOW reviewing them at the end of January! I am a big “out […]
