    St. Claire's Organics Organic Tummy Soothers and Ginger Pastilles (Gluten-Free)

    St. Claire's Organics makes many fine candies, but since I have celiac disease I am especially interested in ones that offer more than just flavor.

    St. Claire's Organics Organic Tummy Soothers and Ginger Pastilles (Gluten-Free)St. Claire's Organics Tummy Soothers and Ginger Pastilles contain medicinal herbs like ginger, slippery elm, cardamom, fennel and peppermint which have been used for centuries to treat stomach and other ailments. It is nice to see a company that understands the benefit of blending them into their candies to offer their customers more than just taste.

    Neither of these gluten-free products contained dairy, casein, corn, soy, egg, nut, fish or shell fish, and both were also vegan, Kosher and GMO-free. Another big plus was that neither of these “candies” tasted too sweet, which I really liked—the sugar taste did not overpower the taste of the herbs.

    The Ginger Pastilles had a distinct—but not overpowering—ginger flavor that left a very nice, clean aftertaste. The Tummy Soothers had a slightly minty herbal flavor that was very pleasant. Although I did not have a stomach ache when I tried these, I have the feeling that they really would be very helpful to anyone who did.

    Both of these candies provide interesting and unique flavors that you just can't find anywhere else except in products made by St. Claire's Organics.

    The Ginger Pastilles are great for taking before riding as passenger on a road-trip. I'm so sensitive to motion sickness that I keep them in my bag whenever I need to rely on public transit.

    Gluten Out's Gluten-Free Tiramisu
    I just enjoyed the most amazing gluten-free tiramisu, something I've missed since going gluten-free nine years ago!  This traditional Italian dessert from GlutenOut is made in Italy, but amazingly it can be delivered right to your door.  Each layer of the tiramisu was perfect, and it had such a wonderful light and fluffy texture--yet each bite was so wonderfully rich and satisfying.  Each package of the tiramisu held two perfectly proportioned servings which took only a short period of time to defrost. Did I mention that they are also made in a dedicated gluten-free facility?

    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.

    Pure Market Express Organic Gluten-Free Lemon Tart
    When I first read the box for this lemon tart, I wasn't exactly excited. I didn't think anything that was gluten-free, free of added sugar, vegan and raw could taste like anything other than cardboard and/or grass.
    Oh how wrong I was: this lemon tart completely blew me away. I am not even gluten-free and I can confidently say this is the most delicious lemon tart I have ever tasted. It is perfectly tangy, sweet (without any weird aftertaste) and somehow it manages to taste creamy despite a lack of dairy.
    The product developers at Pure Market Express must be wizards. That is the only explanation I can muster for how insanely yummy this tart is.

    Im the same, I never know what to eat, some food does better than others for me, I went on to make my own soup and Im glad I did, I should do it more often and at least then J know what's going in to it, it wasn't the best first try but I enjoyed it haha
    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
