    Éclair Naturals Gluten-Free Smoothing Conditioner in Creamy Coconut
    My daughter, Mica, recently tried Éclair Naturals Gluten-Free Smoothing Conditioner in Creamy Coconut, which is a gluten-free hair conditioner that many celiacs will appreciate.
    The first thing she noticed when using it was the feeling that her hair absorbed most of the conditioner, just like a sponge, and this made rinsing it out very easy (some conditioners can be difficult to rinse out).
    She also loved the fact that it made her hair smell like fresh coconuts, and, after three days of using it, her straight, thin hair was much less frizzy, and felt more silky. It was also more shiny and healthy looking.

    Gluten-Free SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener
    SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener is an outstanding choice in place of sugar or any other replacement sweetener. For a variety of reasons, it is far superior to other sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose, saccharin, acesulfame K, or neotame.
    It is also gluten-free and doesn't contain calories, carbohydrates, or any artificial ingredients, and yet it tastes exactly like sugar but does not trigger a glycemic response so it is perfect for people with diabetes.
    SweetLeaf® is available in 35- or 70-packet boxes, or in a shaker jar, and they also produce a liquid stevia version which comes in a variety of flavors.
    For more information, visit www.SweetLeaf.com.

    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!

    Minute Ready to Serve Brown Rice & Quinoa Cups
    Celiac.com 08/24/2017 - It's rare to find a quick, nutritious and healthy lunch or snack. Minute's Ready to Serve Brown Rice & Quinoa fits this bill, and contains 16% of daily fiber, which is hard to find in most gluten-free alternatives. Plus it's ready in only 60 seconds
    I was also surprised by the minimal ingredients in these microwavable cups. Not counting water, they contain only 5 ingredients.
    The first thing I noticed when trying a cup for lunch was how quick and easy it could be made, and the second thing was how good it was! The rice and quinoa are perfectly moist, and the blend is perfectly salted.
    I've been able to think of more reasons to have these around than just for lunch or a snack. For example I am thinking about using them as a base for this year's Thanksgiving stuffing. It would take only 3-4 cups for my recipe, and would reduce the amount of work involved by a lot.
    I've also used these as a side dish with dinner. The other night I made salmon for my family and heated up 4 cups at the same time, added some broccoli on the side, and had a healthy, gluten-free dinner that was much easier to prepare due to having the cups handy.
    Another idea I had is to stir in peanut butter and honey to the heated rice. I know it sounds weird but I bet it would taste good and would make a great snack.
