The Gluten-Free Lunch Box Blues

It can be a challenge living gluten-free (or with any other food sensitivity).
When Samuel was younger it was much easier because he was not yet subjected to peers that ate differently than him. Once he was in school full time, I had to negotiate with him about the lunch foods that I packed for him. I wanted to send healthy foods such as “green soup” which is a family favorite at our house but the mixture of cruciferous vegetables made his lunch smell sulfurous which then resulted in his peers teasing him. He came home and animately announced that I should never send that green soup in his lunch again.

Two Product Reviews and a Giveaway!

When Foster Farm’s first contacted me about this potential product review, I was a little hesitant as I am an advocate of organic meat and ingredients. I knew the gluten-free products by Foster Farms would be conventional. After I thought about it, I decided to do the review as I have many clients across the United States that complain they don’t have quality grocer’s or farms near them to purchase organic products or do not have the budget. I feel very lucky that I have had the resources and accessibility to provide my family with quality food and I know, all to well, that there are many families that don’t have this. This being said, I am glad that a company such as Foster Farms can provide gluten-free foods in the mainstream grocery stores making it more assessable for many Americans. My hope is that organic foods will begin to be subsidized by the government so they too become more affordable like conventional meats and other products.

Proud to Bee Gluten-Free!

It was a beautiful day. The sun shone above and the weather was perfect as 65 plus members of my gluten-free support group, Gluten Intolerance Group of Tri-Valley, marched for gluten-free awareness and pride. There were huge smiles and puffed up chests as we proclaimed our pride in reclaiming our health and well-being by removing gluten from our diet. There isn’t a member in my group that won’t boast about the miraculous difference this diet has made in their life or the life of their child and yet this lifestyle can be...

Cabbage Three Ways Gluten-Free Part Three

Cabbage Soup Last but not least is my cabbage soup recipe. Does anyone out there remember the cabbage soup diet? All you had to do is eat cabbage soup all day and you would lose weight. We all thought it had some magical properties about it but what we were doing is just cutting out all processed foods and sugar from our diet which naturally resulted in weight loss. I would eventually pass out and have to be revived with a burger from McDonald’s (this was the 70’s and 80’s, mind you). I am a protein person. If I don’t...

Cabbage Three Ways | Gluten-Free | Part Two

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls Above you see my mom’s world famous stuffed cabbage rolls. I converted the family recipe to gluten-free and no artificial flavorings or seasonings. My used to use Accent (MSG) in quite a few of her recipes. A quick note to my VEGAN FRIENDS: Below you will see photos of the ground meat version of this recipe. Hold tight, if you scroll down, I also offer a vegan version of this recipe using beans. Preparing the Cabbage Rolls I decided to use ground lamb for this recipe since I am trying to be more conscious of...
