    SOYJOY's Pineapple Gluten-Free Nutrition Bar

    With three children, it feels like I am always on the go, so I am always on the lookout for nutritious gluten-free snacks that I can keep in my car or grab on my way out the door.  However, recently I've grown tired of the typical flavor profile found with most gluten-free nutrition bars, but I really did want to find one that would excite my taste buds. 

    I was particularly happy when I came across SOYJOY's pineapple flavored gluten-free bars.  At first, I was a little worried that the pineapple flavor would taste artificial, or that it would have an overpowering pineapple taste.  Thankfully, that wasn't the case!  They use real dried pineapple and juice (what a concept), and that is only a small part of what this makes this bar a tropical treat.  SOYJOY's gluten free pineapple bars have a nice texture that is moist with bits of dried pineapple, raisins and coconut, which gives it a pleasant chewy texture.  It reminds me of a tropical cookie more than it does a nutrition bar. 

    SOYJOY's Pineapple Gluten-Free Nutrition BarUnlike other gluten free bars, SOYJOY kept the ingredient list pure and simple so you know exactly what you are eating.  They use ground whole soy, which is high in nutrients like protein, fiber and iron, and the bar is also rich in antioxidants and minerals.  Although this bar was smaller than I had expected, it was just enough to keep me satisfied between meals.  With only 140 calories per bar, 4 grams of protein, and 3 grams of fiber, this bar is certainly a little treasure that I will be sure to stock up on.  They also are perfect to keep in the car or handy for travel since they hold up well in the heat. 

    If you’re looking to be pleasantly surprised like I was, then I would recommend giving them a try.

  • 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.

    Venice Bakery Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts
    I happen to love thin crust pizza. The other day I had the good fortune to get my hands on a 12” Venice Bakery Gluten-Free Pizza Crust, and it looked as if it was made exactly how I like it—uniformly thin  throughout the entire crust. I was impressed by how perfectly formed this pizza crust was, and I also like the fact that it was larger than most crusts I’ve tried—it was big enough for my family of four.
    My family and I prepared the pizza together, and we added our favorite tomato sauce, cheese and gluten-free pizza toppings. We baked it in the oven as advised on the package for about 12-15 minutes at 475F, and the results of our minimal efforts were outstanding! The crust had excellent texture and tasted exactly how I expect great pizza to taste. My non-gluten-free family members (who can be more picky about some of the gluten-free products that I bring home!), absolutely loved this pizza!
    I would love to do an experiment with with this pizza and serve it to unsuspecting non-celiacs—I am certain that they would not only not detect that it was gluten-free, but would consider it an outstanding pizza crust!

    Konsyl's Gluten-Free Original Psyllium Fiber
    Adding fiber to your diet is important for a number of reasons, including dieting, lowering blood cholesterol, or managing or preventing diabetes or heart disease.  That being said, I recently came across psyllium fiber from Konsyl that is not only gluten-free, but also happens to be one of the most effective means of adding concentrated extra fiber to your diet. 
    I also appreciate the fact that Konsyl Original Psyllium Fiber doesn't contain artificial flavors or additives, and is also sugar-free.  When I first tried Konsyl I have to say that I was impressed with the purity of the ingredients in comparison to other brands that I've tried in the past. 
    Just after a light lunch I mixed up one teaspoon of Konsyl fiber with 8 ounces of water and drank it, and followed this up with another cup or two of water. I noticed that I felt full until dinner, as psyllium fiber is not digested by the body and gives one the sensation of feeling full without adding any extra calories. 
    No matter what your reason may be to add extra fiber to your diet, Konsyl provides a simple and effective way to do it that is worth trying out.  I am now hooked on Konsyl's Original Psyllium Fiber!

    Yehuda Gluten Free Matzo-Style Squares
    Traditionally, Matzo (also known as Matzah or Matza) is an unleavened bread that is eaten during the week-long Jewish holiday known as Passover. However, I just found an amazing gluten-free matzo that I will be sure to have on hand year-round. 
    Yehuda's Gluten-free Matzo is imported from Israel and is not only Kosher for Passover (Orthodox Union Parve), but it is also certified gluten-free!  These crackers are made as a large cracker sheet (approx 7” x 7”) and they have such a wonderful crunch and flakiness to them, and contain just the right amount of salt.  Compared with most gluten-free crackers I've had these are lower in both salt and sugar, and they would be perfect to set out for any guests on any occasion (gluten-free or not). 
    Other than the size of the gluten-free matzo, their taste and texture are the closest thing to a "Saltine" cracker that I have tried since going gluten-free over nine years ago.  My only complaint would be that there were a few pieces of the gluten-free matzo that arrived broken, but I would have broken them down into smaller pieces anyhow, so it wasn't a big deal. 
    In my opinion the taste of these gluten-free crackers is wonderful. They can be enjoyed on their own, or topped with cheese or meat, or you could crumble them up and put them on top of your favorite dish.  I am just so happy to finally have found a gluten-free cracker that tastes great and is versatile, and one that my picky gluten-free two-year-old actually likes to eat as well.  I also can't wait to get creative with them in the kitchen and begin using them for things like breaded coatings for fried chicken, toppings for soups and salads and as a basic ingredient in my favorite recipes.

    Bookbinder Specialities Gourmet Gluten-Free Vegetable Soup Sampler 6 Pack
    If you love hot soup on a cold wintery day, these wonderful gluten-free vegetable soups are a great choice.
    The Cuban Black Bean Soup has pureed black beans with corn, red peppers, onions, carrots and spices. I thought it would be spicy, but it was mild. High in fiber, this soup would make a great starter for a home-made Mexican Feast.
    The Butternut Squash & Mushroom is thick and creamy with a beautiful golden color. Put this soup in a dark bowl and you have a chef-inspired dish that will win rave reviews.
    The Zesty Tomato soup is an interesting combination of tomatoes, jalapeno pepper and ginger. However, I did not realize there were jalapenos in this soup until I looked at the list of ingredients, so the word “zesty” does not imply hot or spicy.
    The Tuscan Minestrone is a low-calorie soup with tomatoes, spices, and white beans. The broth is light, making it the perfect starter for a bigger meal.
    The Sicilian Tomato Zucchini Bisque is a delightful blend of zucchini and tomatoes combined in a rich cream sauce.
    The Sweet Burgundy Onion Soup has a rich, distinctive taste due to the nice combination of burgundy wine and french brandy. Add some mozzarella cheese to the top and voila–you have an onion soup that tastes like home-made.
    All of these family-style soups are carefully crafted with the finest ingredients. Additionally, the sampler pack provides exceptional variety at a reasonable cost and the glass containers are a classy addition to your pantry (no more worries about contamination from metal cans that are often made of BPA). I highly recommend these delicious soups as part of a meal or as the meal.

    Thank you for the advice, in the end I went and made my own soup, not great for my first try but it was better than potentially making myself worse, I enjoyed it, I got some vitamains too to take, I was able to find a liquid Vitamain B Complex, the store I went to was helpfull enough to show me what was Gluten Free.   I fealt awful around then, Im feeling like I have more energy now I can actually do things and focus more, Ill keep on like I have been, Im not 100% and still have some B
    Not to mention the fact that (for those using the Nima) the Nima sensor has been known to give false positives. https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/1/18080666/nima-sensor-testing-fda-food-allergy-gluten-peanut-transparency-data https://www.celiac.ca/cca-statement-nima-gluten-sensor/ https://www.allergy-insight.com/nima-is-it-really-96-9-accurate/ https://www.glutenfreewatchdog.org/news/troubling-gluten-testing-data-released-by-nima-but-hold-the-phone/ https://www.glutenfreew
