    Nima Portable Sensor Detects Gluten in Foods
    After years of dreaming about such a device, a pocket-sized home gluten sensor is finally here!
    I received mine and immediately began testing products that I eat often, just to make sure that they are really gluten-free. It is well known that even products that are labeled gluten-free sometimes test positive for gluten.
    After opening a fairly large box that it was beautifully packaged in, I was surprised to see that it is indeed pocket-sized! The quick start guide allowed me to run a test almost immediately, and the first product I tested was a can of re-fried black beans that I eat regularly on corn tostada shells.
    The test was very simple to run: I took a pea-sized sample of the beans and put them in the one-time-use capsule, inserted the capsule into the sensor, pressed start and waited about 3 minutes. The sensor made some noises while running, and then I saw a smiley face appear, which meant that my beans were safe and below 20 ppm (if the wheat icon shows up it isn't safe).
    Another key feature Nima offers is their smartphone app that allows you to share and upload test results with other Nima users.
    If you are looking for the ultimate peace of mind, I highly recommend Nima Sensor!

    Milton's Gluten-Free Himalayan Salt Baked Chips & Crispy Sea Salt Crackers
    Did you know that Milton's Craft Bakers makes an outstanding line of gluten-free chips and crackers? I didn't, but was recently lucky enough to get to try out their Gluten-Free Himalayan Salt Baked Chips and their Gluten-Free Crispy Sea Salt Crackers.
    What really stood out about each of these wonderful gluten-free snacks was their lightness—since both are perfectly baked instead of fried, they tasted light, healthy, and very crunchy. The Crispy Sea Salt Crackers were perfect for dipping. I tried them with a jalapeno and artichoke dip, and they were wonderful, and I also had them with a sharp cheddar cheese on top. They seem to go great with everything, and are made with multiple grains including millet, brown rice, gluten-free oats, and corn.
    Likewise, the Himalayan Salt Baked Chips were similarly versatile, and were far lighter tasting than regular tortilla chips. Besides being gluten-free, the chips are also free of dairy, nut, soy, and eggs, and are made with corn, brown rice, lentils, and chick peas. Both snacks are non-GMO, Kosher, and don't contain any cholesterol.
    These outstanding snacks are a perfect addition to any party or event, or just to have as a snack on your own. They are gluten-free, but those who are not on a gluten-free diet will never notice this. Milton's Craft Bakers has done a great job making these wholesome, gluten-free snacks.

    Wild Zora Taco Pork Meat & Veggie Bar
    Who would have thought that, if it is done correctly, mixing meat with fruit and vegetables would make an outstanding paleo bar snack? Before I tasted Wild Zora's Taco Pork Meat & Veggie Bar, I certainly would not have believed it.
    It is hard to improve upon plain old jerky, but Wild Zora has done just this by mixing it up with healthy fruits like dates, tomatoes, and apricots; and vegetables like bell peppers, onions, celery, and cilantro. The result is a jerky-fruity-vegetable tasting bar that is easy to bite, tastes wonderful, and is perfect for a healthy gluten-free diet.
