    Today I tried a product that many celiacs should appreciate—a delicious Raspberry Attune Gluten-Free Probiotic Chocolate Bar.  The amazing thing about these bars (they make several flavors, including Raspberry, Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Crisp) is that they contain five times the live cultures as yogurt, so they would be an especially important addition to anyone’s diet who has celiac disease. 
    The gluten-free bar was excellent, and it tasted like a very high-quality chocolate bar with small pieces of raspberry—an excellent combination of flavors.  Since it is made with 68% cacao it is likely packed with natural antioxidants as well as the added probiotics (in the form of Bifidobacterium Lactis HN019, Lactobacillius Acidophilus NCFM and Lactobacillius Casei LC-11).
    I would recommend these bars to anyone who wants to add a healthy snack or dessert to their diet that also packs antioxidants and probiotics in a single, small 0.7 oz. gluten-free chocolate bar (it is only 90 calories).  These bars will also fool my kids—they will be eating something they love, chocolate, but also something that is healthy—so if you have children this is the kind of treat you should be looking for!

    I recently tried Amy's new Gluten Free Rice Crust Margherita Pizza.  The picture on the box was enticing, and I was impressed with the list of natural and organic ingredients, so I just had to give it a try. 
    Upon opening the box I noticed chunks of real mozzarella cheese sprinkled with basil.  It was the perfect size for my toaster oven, but I have a pizza stone so I decided to prepare it in the oven.  The aroma was very promising, and it even caught the attention of my kids.  The pizza was done in about 12 minutes, and it looked just like the picture on the box.  The mozzarella melted beautifully and I couldn't wait to dig in.  The crust had a nice crunch to it and a chewy texture...combine that with the blend of the mozzarella and basil and a hint of garlic and it was delicious! 
    My only complaint would be that I would have like to have a bit more sauce (I like saucy pizzas).  I loved that it was made as a single-serve pizza, since most gluten-free pizzas never taste the same the next day.  I wish I could have enjoyed the entire pizza myself, but my non-celiac kids ended up liking it as much as me!

    Fish oil supplements provide well-established health benefits, but they are especially beneficial for celiacs because they aid in the recovery of fat levels and reduce intestinal inflammation. Eagle Therapeutics' CeliAct Fish Oil is tailored specifically to the needs of celiacs: taking CeliAct alone is great, but you really need that extra fat to heal your intestines.
    The capsules are of a decent size, but I can easily swallow two at once. I have not taken other fish oil supplements, but I know that many who do experience the dreaded “fish burp”. I am happy to say that I still have not experienced this phenomenon, but I have noticed feeling generally more focused. Placebo effect or not, I'm going to keep taking them.

    If you want peanut butter that has the consistency of a soda fountain milkshake—not too thick but not too thin—this is it. 
    I could not get enough of the Cookie Nookie flavor.  It has just the right amount of sweetness thanks to a lovely combination of sugar, honey, and vanilla.  For a great treat anytime, I highly recommend Cookie Nookie Gluten-Free Peanut Butter.  Just make sure the adults in your family keep their supply away from the kitchen pantry that is shared with the kids during the upcoming school holiday vacation!

    Posterboy, thank you for passing along those links to that information about corn and celiac disease.  It makes total sense to me that corn could, in at least some rarer cases, aggravate the condition in the same way as oats, as corn (maize) is a grain, after all.  That is why I still am not sure about the teff that I had used a number of times, either --- not that I'm using any teff, or corn, or oats right now, as of a few days ago. And I did not know about the link between Xanthan Gum and
    Ah, thank you so much for clarifying that, Squirmingitch!  I had actually tried searching threads in this forum to figure out just what nightshade family veggies were doing to people with celiac disease, but the answer was not clear to me.  I'll rest a bit easier now when I eat my breakfast potatoes tomorrow morning. You know, I kind of like potatoes for breakfast!  I had them, peeled and boiled, with some olive oil, salt (non-iodized), freshly ground black pepper (my one spice concession o
    Moleface, I have profound respect and sympathy for you in what you what through with the medical industry (yes, it is an industry). I had two different and unrelated health problems back in the 1970s and 1980s, for which I visited a number of different doctors and hospitals.  Ironically, the one that was gastrointestinal in nature, which I now strongly believe was celiac disease, went completely undiagnosed --- even after spending almost a week in the hospital being subjected to almost ever
