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. I asked her if I could help her find something, and she said, "I don't know! The doctor told me today that I have celiac disease and

Gluten Free Diva: Cherrybrook Kitchen® Gluten Free Dreams Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

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

Gluten Free Diva: King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Muffin Mix

I would say a muffin mix is an extreme hit when your kids are requesting you make it for the third time in two weeks. When you make an excuse to stop at the grocery store so you can pick up another box, you know you love it just as much! I had noticed King Arthur Gluten Free products popping up i
