gluten-free Giveaways For Celiac Awareness Month

20 May 2015 - 07:25 AM

Hi everyone!

 

Just a heads up that there are a bunch of bloggers doing great product giveaways to celebrate Celiac Awareness Month. If you search instagram/twitter/facebook for hashtags like #glutenfreegiveaways, ect you should find a bunch. 

 

Sharing the love!  :D  :D  :D


New Food Steamer?

06 May 2015 - 10:51 AM

Even though I've been gluten-free for several years, I have the occasional "Oh no, I never thought about _____!" moment. This time it's about my food steamer.

I have one of those plastic food steamers that has an extra steaming bowl for rice.I had it before going gluten-free and at one point cooked gluteny flavored rice in the steaming bowl. I ordered a new steaming bowl. BUT should I have also replaced the lid and any other parts of it since it's all plastic? 

 

And dear Lord, when does the questioning end!?!?!


Mid-Week Funny!

Thought I would share! What I love about this is that it states at the beginning that they are clearly making fun of the fad diet, not the medical condition. Enjoy!

Ice Cream Made From Cashews? gluten-free?

16 March 2015 - 07:47 PM

I've been talking with a local ice cream company about their gluten free status. It all looks good in terms of their actual ice cream making process. They are very good about avoiding cross contamination. My last question was about their ice cream base. It's a vegan ice cream, so they make it from cashews. I asked them if the cashews themselves are free from cross contamination. I got this response back. What do you think? Does anyone know about the allergen policies for raw materials from other countries? 

 

"Regarding cashews...to be honest, we have not looked into the process by which the nuts are harvested. We use a specific cashew nut from a specific country but we are not sure how to inquire into whether or not these cashews have been contaminated through processing. Cashew is a global raw material commodity and we purchase it in quantities numbering in the tons, so it would be highly unlikely that the nuts have gone anywhere near equipment or even processing plants that also handle gluten-containing materials."


San Francisco, Livermore, Grass Valley, Nevada City (California)

Hi everyone!

 

I'm taking a trip to see my boyfriend's family for Christmas. They are so sweet to me in terms of everything gluten free. This year, they would like to try to include me in a few restaurant plans but want to pick a place I can eat at. I've called a few places that they've heard had gluten free options, but many places seem to be catering to fad dieters and are not safe enough for Celiacs to eat at.

 

Does anyone have a restaurant you could recommend for any of the following areas?

 

San Francisco 

Livermore

Grass Valley

Nevada City

 

Thank you so much!
