The food you eat can be either the safest & most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison

Hello & Welcome!

I’m going to start off with a brief story about what brought me here today.

Growing up, it was always a dream of mine to become a baker or chef. Most of my time was spent making cooking shows, using my mom’s old camcorder. In high school, my electives consisted of chefs and culinary. During my senior year I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I was devastated. There was nothing I loved more than fresh baked bread, pasta, cakes & pastries. Upset, I left that doctors appointment, went out to breakfast with my dad and had what I thought would be my last chocolate chip pancakes EVER (it actually took me 5 years after being diagnosed to go completely GF).

After my diagnosis, I started stocking up on GF food, not even knowing if I was going to like any of it. And of course, I didn’t.

Up until this point I didn’t have many symptoms, other than the occasional stomach ache. I figured “Hey, if I can get away with eating my favorite foods and only have to deal with a little stomach pain here and there, that’s totally worth it” & plus I didn’t have any symptoms at all during my pregnancies (later on down the road). I was able to eat gluten without having to deal with the consequences (so weird how pregnancy does that, right?).

It wasn’t until after having my daughter that I realized how bad my gluten allergy really was. It was effecting my stomach, my hair, my energy, my immune system etc. I finally decided I didn’t want to destroy my body any longer. I was going to go completely GF, and guess what? I DID. It was very hard at first but I did it and I am extremely proud of myself. I have been GF for a year now.

I spend a lot of my free time trying to find new recipes and snacks that taste delicious. Foods you would never even know were GF! I would love to share all of these delicious recipes with you!

Follow me on my journey in search of the BEST GF foods!

Thank you

How do I know what to buy?

Here are some of my personal favorites and recommendations

Schar Table Crackers

Schar does an amazing job with these table crackers. They taste exactly like saltines and the texture is on point. I use these for my soups, cheese & crackers and they taste amazing with some Nutella. I also use these for my GF Christmas crack recipe that I will be adding to my blog soon!

Price $4.94/ Walmart

Canyon Bakehouse Bread

Out of all the GF bread I have tried this is my all time favorite. It has the best taste and texture. I use this for my sandwiches, french toast, grilled cheese, toast and mini pizzas. I keep the bread frozen and thaw out pieces as I need them. The country white is my favorite.

Price $4.98/ Walmart

Krusteaz Products

The Krusteaz brand does such a good job with their GF products. I love these because it saves me from having to make everything from scratch. Just add your basics. To name a few of their products: cornbread, chocolate cake, yellow cake, blueberry muffins, brownies, cookies, cinnamon swirl cake, pancakes and confetti pancakes! My favorites are the cornbread and brownies!

Price: $3.84/Walmart

Sweet Loren’s Cookie Dough

I love Sweet Loren’s premade cookie dough! Not only are they super convenient but they are delicious. They come in 4 flavors: Chocolate Chunk, Fudgy Brownie, Sugar and Oatmeal Cranberry. My favorite is the Chocolate Chunk although I have yet to try the Sugar. I find these at Hannaford and Stop N Shop. Not only does Sweet Loren’s make premade cookie dough but they also make GF edible cookie dough! Sweet Loren’s doughs are GF, Dairy Free, Vegan and made in a nut free facility.

Chocolate Chip Dō Bites

These chocolate covered cookie dough bites are amazing. I’ve always missed the taste of Toll House cookie dough and these are a great substitute. These taste exactly like real cookie dough and the chocolate coating makes them even better. The are made by Leah’s Better Bites and come in other flavors such as: Birthday, Snickerdoodle and Sun Better! I usually find these at my local Hannafords but have also found them at Trader Joe’s. 6 bites come in a pack for a little over $5 (depending on the store). They are also vegan, dairy free, non-gmo and kosher. This company also makes cake bites but I have yet to find them!

Price: $5.99/ Target
