Skinny Pop!

Skinny Pop!

It’s weird when your son has an allergy to Corn but not to Popcorn, corn tortilla, corn starch, or corn syrup. What’s great is that Taco Tuesday is still and option!

When you just want something quick and easy, Popcorn is an awesome snack!

We love Skinny Pop and love that it’s made with three ingredients: Popcorn, sunflower oil, and salt

It’s Pure Popped Perfection!

Skinny pop also comes in a few different packaged options. You can buy small snack bags for quick on the go options, a big bag to share with friends, and a pop up microwavable box for movie nights.

GF Waffles

GF Waffles

Lego my Eggo… A tag line many of you grew up with. An easy three step breakfast goes something like this:

  1. Take eggo out of the freezer
  2. Put eggo in toaster to eat
  3. Put heated Eggo on plate to eat

Easy! Right?

If you have allergies there is a fourth step. #4 Feel terrible with a stomach ache or go into full blown anaphylaxis.

Instead there is an amazing alternative. Gluten Free, Oat Free, Nut Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free waffles!

Gluten Free Pasta

Gluten Free Pasta

Going gluten free can be very difficult to say the least. Many people ask what the best pasta options are for gluten free products. Keep in mind that GF pasta can taste gritty, and/or slimy if not cooked right. It takes a little longer to cook GF pastas and remember you need to rinse it after it’s been strained.

Here are my top three favorite options

  1. Andean Dream:

Ingredients: Organic white rice flour, organic quinoa flour. All ingredients are GMO free.

Free From: Gluten, Allergen Friendly, Corn Free, and Vegan

This is 100% the best pasta I have had! I absolutely love it. It tastes fresh and doesn’t get a slimy texture. This pasta is expensive though and you need two boxes for a family of four. It’s defiantly my favorite but not the best price.

  1. Trader Joes Quinoa and Brow Rice:

Ingredients: Organic Brown Rice, Organic Quinoa Flour and Water.

I like this option better than I like the all brown rice option. It’s not gritty and tastes similar to normal pasta you would eat.

  1. Deboles: Amaranth

Ingredients: Made with brown rice, quinoa & amaranth

I really like the texture and taste of this pasta. If over cooked it can be slimy which isn’t ideal but if it’s cooked just right then it tastes pretty great.
