    Celiac.com 07/30/2007 - Mmmmm...Toast. The smell of toast filling the room in the morning.
    A perfectly toasted piece of white bread transformed to a perfectly golden brown at the center and at the edges, an aroma packed with memories, evoking deep sighs and wistful smiles.
    Toast is the perfect comfort food. It's also something I've practically given up on bread since I became gluten-free. So, when my Garbo gluten free, dairy free Toast bread arrived, I tried not to get too excited. I'd never tried it and was taking a stab at joy.
    Most of the breads I've tried required toasting first to be anywhere near palatable, and even then, the ones I've tried have been too dense, too chewy, way too sticky, and distinctly lacking in flavor. Most of all, I've yet to find one that gives off the memory-rich aroma of freshly toasted white bread.
    Until now. Garbo Toast Bread has officially rocked my world! Gluten-Free and dairy-free, Garbo Toast bread brings the joy of toast back to the world of the gluten-free diet.
    First, I tried it straight from the toaster and slathered with butter. It was perfectly chewy, and not at all sticky like so many gluten-free breads I've tried and given up on. If I hadn't known it was gluten-free, I would have had to double check. It looked and smelled and tasted like some kind of exotic European white bread.
    Later on, I experimented. Since I still eat dairy, I toasted a slice andtried it with a soft-boiled egg! I was in heaven.For lunch I toasted two slices,buttered them, then added a slice of cheese. I then grilled it gently overa medium heat for the most wonderful toasty, gluten free grilled cheesesandwich. The next morning I had a slice with butter and my favorite jam.More heaven. I went through my first bag of Garbo Toast bread in two days!I promptly ordered not one, not two, but four more loaves!With their gluten free, dairy free Toast bread, Garbo has brought the joy of toast...warm, aromatic, perfectly golden, perfectly chewy, perfectly yummy toast back to my previously untoasty gluten-free life.
    For those us whose lives are dark without toast, and only a bit brighter with our previous toast choices, we salute Garbo!
    For those about to toast, Garbo salutes you!

    Celiac.com 07/30/2007 - When I was growing up, one of the favorite things for my brother and I to have for dinner was fish sticks served hot out of the oven along with our favorite French fries.
    Sure, my mom made many healthy and nutritious meals. In fact, much to our chagrin, she favored healthy and nutritious meals, while my brother and I used to beg for things that tasted great and were sure to put a smile on our faces; like warm, crunchy fish sticks.
    Even   through college, every so often, when I was in need of a comfort food fix, I'   head to the store for a box of my favorite fish sticks and a bag of my favorite   French fries, careful to remember the requisite bottle of ketchup.
    So, when I began to follow a gluten-free diet, I thought I'd never again know the joys of sitting down to a plate of piping hot fish sticks.
    Fortunately, Dr. Praeger's feels my pain, and offers relief in the shape of tasty gluten-free fish sticks and fish fillets.
    Dr. Praeger's fish sticks and fillets are tender, crunchy and fill of flavor.
    Best of all, Dr. Praeger's fish sticks are gluten-free. So, next time you get   the hankering for the comfort of a plate of tasty fish sticks, don't let your   gluten-free get you down. Reach for Dr.   Praeger's gluten-free fish stick and fish fillets and satisfy your craving   for fish sticks which still honoring your gluten-free diet.

    There is no skimping on ingredients or quality when it comes to Brookfarm’s Gluten-Free Macadamia Muesli.  This muesli is a true medley of gluten-free grains, and it includes buckwheat, brown rice, and amaranth—but there’s more…it also contains macadamia nuts, cranberries, raisins, soy flour and pumpkin kernels.
    Upon opening the bag, I immediately noticed an array of colors from this amazing variety of grains, nuts, seeds and fruit.  It was a pleasant surprise to see that they were using buckwheat, brown rice and amaranth as their main gluten-free grains, probably due to their outstanding nutritional benefits, including their high fiber content.  Likewise, macadamia nuts have been shown in studies to reduce bad cholesterol, and increase good cholesterol, so I always try to find way to add them to my diet.
    I filled my bowl about half-full with this delicious muesli mixture, and then poured about two cups of plain yogurt on top and mixed it all together.  Upon tasting it I discovered that this muesli has a very nice texture combination—it is not overly crunchy, sweet or salty—as I have found to be the case with other brands of muesli.  It seems to have just the right-balance of crunchiness, sweetness and saltiness, and all of its wholesome ingredients seem to blend together perfectly to create an outstanding muesli. 
    Brookfarm’s Gluten-Free Macadamia Muesli is much better than the muesli that I got used to eating when I was exchange student in Germany, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a healthy meal to start their day.  This is a “feel good” meal or snack that will leave you satisfied.  If you are a fan of muesli you will love this Australian treat, and even if you are not a muesli fan I believe you will still enjoy Brookfarm’s Gluten-Free Macadamia Muesli!
    Brookfarm can be found in selected Whole Foods, Wegmans, Central Markets, and many other fine food stores. More info can be found at their Web site: www.brookfarm.com.au

    Purity Gluten-Free Bread is an amazing product for many reasons.  First off it is cultured for 8 hours (you can notice a slight sourdough flavor), so it is easier to digest, and, according to the Julian Bakery “you get more energy out of it than it takes to digest it.” Second, gluten-free Purity Bread has only 2 net carbs, 7 grams of protein, and 8 grams of fiber per slice, and I doubt that there are other gluten-free breads that can make this claim.  Third, Purity Bread has zero refined ingredients and is excellent for those with diabetes, celiac disease, candida overgrowth, and hypoglycemia—so it really is in a class of its own.
    On top of all this the bread tastes fantastic!
