    TruJoy Organic Original Fruit Chews and Choco Chews (Gluten-Free)

    When I first put an orange flavored TruJoy Organic Original Fruit Chew in my mouth and began chewing, I soon noticed an intense explosion of orange flavor. It reminded me a bit of the Starburst candies that I used to eat as a child—but instead of containing corn syrup and artificial junk—these chews are organic and contain real fruit juice and cane sugar.

    TruJoy Organic Original Fruit Chews and Choco Chews (Gluten-Free)The texture and chewiness was great, and it seemed to last forever. Other flavors in the package included strawberry, cherry and lemon, and each of them was just as wonderful and intense as the orange.

    I also got a bag of TruJoy Organic Choco Chews, and again, when I put one in my mouth and chewed it I was brought back to an old favorite of mine called a Tootsie Roll, but like the Organic Fruit Chews, the Organic Choco Chews use only organic and natural ingredients, and you can really tell the difference.

    Another think I like about this company is that they are a member of “1% For The Planet,” and donate a minimum of 1% of their revenue to organizations that support environmental causes.

    If you like healthier versions of some of your favorite candies, and like companies that contribute to the environment, TruJoy chews are a perfect fit.

    I tried these samples today and thought they were really great.  These fully prepared frozen gluten-free meatballs are fully cooked and just need to be heated for about 90 seconds in the microwave before they are ready to eat—meatballs couldn’t be easier. 
    They tasted great, and would make a perfect addition to a nice plate of gluten-free spaghetti.  The meatballs are perfectly seasoned and have a nice Italian meatball taste—probably due to the Ricotta and Romano cheeses used in the ingredients.  On top of all this these meatballs are organic, have zero grams of Trans Fat per serving, and they don’t contain any artificial ingredients or preservatives!

    I was so happy to discover Shabtai Gourmet's gluten-free Swiss chocolate roll. The first thing noticed was how easy it was to slice and how beautifully each slice looked. The smell of rich chocolate was overwhelming in the most wonderful of ways.  After the first bite, I knew we were going to reorder again and soon!  The chocolate sponge cake was moist and the crème filling gave the perfect compliment to the rich dark chocolate coating.  It was such a delicious treat for my entire family and not to mention that it is also certified kosher for passover as well.

    Send Me Gluten Free
    If you are someone who likes getting a surprise in the mailbox on a regular basis, a delivery of new gluten-free products from Send Me Gluten Free is definitely something you should try. 
    Each month a variety of gluten-free items will arrive on your doorstep in a bright orange box.  The ability to try different products and compare them is a smart idea.  For example, in the box I received, there were bar/granola products from three different companies, and two bags of chips (lentil and apple), along with personal care products and coupons which could be used on future purchases.

    Thank you GFinDC. Question. When you say, "quick rinse", can you define what is safe for us to use when washing our fruits and veggies? I know that might sound like something I should know but I am seriously taking no chances (at least not on purpose). I've been buying organic produce because I was told I needed to. Do you find that to be true or do I need to find a new nutritionist? 😉
    Hi Wade, You areright, there are lots of little gotchas out there in the gluten-filled world.  That's why it is easier/safer to stick with whole foods at the beginning of the gluten-free diet.  The list of ingredients on an apple or an orange or a steak is usually real short.  So you can get out of the grocery store quicker by eating whole foods like those.  Plain frozen veggies or canned are usually safe too.  And fresh produce as long as you give it a quick rinse.
    Why....why would your doctor not follow the standard of care for testing celiac disease?  I think you need to think about  finding another doctor.  If you are in the US, you can “walk” into a lab and order the test and pay cash: https://labtestsonline.org/tests/celiac-disease-antibody-tests No, your result does not significantly lower your odds of getting a celiac disease diagnosis.  She ordered the LEAST commonly used test, especially since she only ordered that one alone.  I think she thinks you do not have celiac disease, but that you may have a gluten sensitivity.  But that is wrong!  There is no test for gluten sensitivity.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://www.mayocliniclabs.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf https://celiac.org/about-celiac-disease/screening-and-diagnosis/screening/ https://www.verywellhealth.com/celiac-disease-blood-tests-562694 https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/diagnostic-tests/celiac-disease-health-care-professionals I am not a doctor though.  Perhaps, you can ask her why she did not order the complete panel or at least the screening tests most often ordered for celiac disease. Know that some celiacs are asymptomatic (no symptoms) Some just have one symptom.  Some have classic symptoms.  I presented with only anemia and no GI symptoms with only a positive on the DGP IgA.    I hope this helps.
