Have you tried VitaCoco Coconut Water? Hydration is so important, try something new.

I recently attended an amazing fundraiser for Lupus Awareness called "Christine's Un- Birthday Party for Lupus".  I received a gift basket with some VitaCoco Coconut Water in it.  I have heard a lot of things about coconut water but thus far had not joined the craze.  Coconut water is a gluten fr

Product Review: KIND Bars Snacks – Yummy, Healthy, Easy and Gluten-Free!

It can be tricky when you are on a special diet, like gluten-free or are simply trying to eat healthier. Seems like the most nutritious foods aren't very appealing, and the most yummy goodies are nothing more than empty calories that derail you from your goals. And what about convenience? You want

Medically Necessary Diet? Don't Freak Out!

Medically Necessary Diet? Don’t Freak Out!

A few months ago, I was in a local health food store and saw a sad but familiar sight: a woman with an utterly bewildered expression standing in the gluten-free aisle.

Product Review: Maxwell House’s Iced Latte Singles

  It’s 4am in the morning and storms are rolling into your area. Your three year old is terrified of storms so inevitably ends up in your room saying she’s scared. You have her climb into bed with you because there is no hope of getting her back in her own. You have hopes of getting a fe

Of course I try to eat fairly healthy, but there are times you just need a little indulgence. Since going gluten free I have been on the quest to find a worthy chocolate chip cookie. Of course I could try to perfect a recipe from scratch, but quite honestly I don’t have the time or patience for th

The Gluten Free Diva: Wellaby’s Cheese Ups

I know all my fellow gluten free friends can relate to having 5 items you totally miss the most and would pick to eat if given a day to freely digest the G word. My husband thinks I’m crazy, but one of my most missed items is Cheez-It® Crackers. I have loved them since eating them at the kitchen

Gluten-Free Diva: Glutino Gluten Free Dream Cookies: Chocolate Vanilla Creme

One positive for me about living gluten-free is that the temptation of many calorie loaded dessert type treats is eliminated unless someone goes out of their way to bake or buy me a special gluten-free dessert. One negative for my almost 10 year old daughter eating gluten free, is that she is exclud
