  • About Me

    After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002.  The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have.  It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.

    It has been a while since I’ve tried Tasty Bite products, so when their samples arrived a few days ago I was reminded of just how simple their products are to prepare—most require only 90 seconds in the microwave and they are ready to eat.  In addition to being very easy to prepare, most of their products are also gluten-free.  This combination makes them an easy choice when you want great gluten-free Indian Cuisine. 
    I picked out the gluten-free Jaipur Vegetables from their other samples because I love this dish, which consists of slow cooked vegetable stew with paneer cheese.  In addition to being gluten-free their products also do not contain MSG or preservatives, and are a healthy choice because they contain a wide array of vegetables that are very nutritious. 
    Modern food technology still amazes me—90 seconds after putting the gluten-free Jaipur Vegetables in the microwave it was ready to eat, and it tasted wonderful!  The vegetables were remarkably fresh tasting, and were cooked to perfection—this dish really tasted like something that would be served at a high-end Indian restaurant (without the high cost!). 
    I would definitely buy Tasty Bite Jaipur Vegetables on a regular basis, as well as their other outstanding gluten-free Indian meals and side dishes.

    I tried Mr. Krispers Sour Cream & Onion Baked Rice Krisps, which are small and thin gluten-free crackers, and I must say that they are truly outstanding…I ate the whole 4.2 oz. bag and found myself licking my fingers after they were all gone.  It is really impossible to eat just one of these tasty little baked, gluten-free rice thins—actually if you can stop at half a bag your will power would be exponentially greater than mine was!
    This product reminds me of sour cream & onion potato chips, but the nice thing about Mr. Krispers is that they are baked instead of fried, and the ingredients include brown rice flour, so you get 1 gram of fiber per serving (4% of the “Daily Value”), or if you are like me you would get 20% of your daily fiber by eating the whole bag. 
    My children also loved Mr. Krispers Sour Cream & Onion Baked Gluten-Free Rice Krisps, and they would make an outstanding addition to their lunch boxes.  They would also be a hit at any party of other social gathering—just be sure to have dozens of bags on hand because your guests won’t be able to stop eating them!

    Second Helping Mama's Gluten-Free Meatballs
    Over the weekend I tried Second Helping's "Mama's Meatballs" and was pleasantly surprised. They are authentic, Italian style gluten-free meatballs that are made with all natural beef. In addition to being gluten-free they are also dairy/casein, nut and soy-free, and are non-GMO.
    The first thing I noticed about them is that they are good-sized and not greasy. It doesn't say low fat on the package, but to me it seems like they must be made from leaner, lower fat beef than most meatballs I've had, which I really like. They also have a very even, fine consistency, as though the beef is very finely ground, and again, perhaps leaner.
    The meatballs are perfectly seasoned with the usual Italian herbs, and I appreciate that they did not overdo it with the seasonings, as can be the case with other prepared meatballs I've tried.
    Here is another great product that makes life easier for those with celiac disease. Gluten-Free meatballs can take a lot of time and effort to make, and they usually don't turn out this good, so I normally just go without. Now I can simply keep a bag of these in my freezer or refrigerator for the moment that the spaghetti and meatballs craving hits me, and serve them on top of my favorite pasta and sauce!

    Gluten Free Therapeutics Celi-Vites
    Anyone with celiac disease knows how important it is to read the labels on food and beverage products. This is also very important when it comes to supplements. Celiac disease affects how the body absorbs vitamins and minerals, so choosing a supplement to replace those lost is essential. It is also wise to consider a supplement that provides other benefits such as digestive enzymes, antioxidants, and probiotics.
    If you can get one gluten-free supplement that does all this – you've hit the jackpot and I think this is the case with Gluten Free Therapeutics' new Celi-Vites Body Health capsules. In addition to being a great multivitamin, this supplement contains zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, chromium, and molybdenum in a chelated form. Mineral supplements provided as chelated are said to have dramatically improved absorption rates over mineral supplements provided as simple "mineral salts" like zinc chloride.
    Celivites also provides digestive support and antioxidants. Additionally, Celi-Vites contains a proprietary blend of phytonutrients not currently available in any other supplement. Phytonutrients are plant-derived compounds associated with positive health effects.
    I tried them and really liked them. If you want just one supplement because you don't like taking dozens of different pills a day, check out Celi-Vites: www.glutenfreetherapeutics.com.
