  • 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.

    Now is the perfect time of year to find a tasty, easy-to-make gluten-free pie crust!  I recently tried Inspiration Mixes gluten-free pie crust mix and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. 
    This pie crust mix is priced right and each box makes four pie crusts.  The crust only took a few minutes to make, and after a short time in the fridge it was ready to be rolled out.  I just dusted some gluten-free flour on parchment paper and simply rolled out the ball of gluten-free dough and was surprised to see how easily it transferred it into the pie pan.  It held together beautifully and wasn't dry, crumbly or gritty like some of the other brands that I have tried.  The gluten free pie crust held in place and withstood the moist filling of my pumpkin pie. 
    I was a little nervous about serving it because I have not had the best of luck with gluten free pie crusts in the past, but as soon as I cut into the first slice I knew this pie crust was going to be different.  The crust was flaky, and as you may know the first slice can be the most difficult to remove from the pan, but I have to say that it came out beautifully!  My entire family (even the non celiacs) enjoyed the pumpkin pie.  I was a little disappointed that we didn't have any leftovers, but that's better than making a pie that no one wants to eat. 
    I still have enough pie crust mix to make a few more, but this time I am getting requests to make a gluten free apple pie!

    SOYJOY's Mango Coconut Gluten Free Nutrition Bar is a tasty treat made from ground whole soy and just the right balance of real coconut and exotic fruits--yet is not too sweet. 
    SOYJOY uses pure wholesome ingredients so you know exactly what is in these bars.  The bars have more of a “cookie” texture which I find more enjoyable, and only pack 140 calories per bar.  They are a bit on the smaller size in comparison to other bars on the market, but they did their job and kept me satisfied between meals, so I would put them in my "would recommend to others" category.

    If your looking for a quick grab and go breakfast or a satisfying snack that is gluten free, dairy free and also vegan, then I would suggest Amy's Gluten-free Tofu Scramble Breakfast Wrap.  You can either microwave it just shy of 2 minutes, or put it in the oven if you prefer a crispier wrap. 
    This wrap is filled with organic vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms and spinach.  Amy's wrap also has organic hash browns which I think gives it more of that “comfort food” feeling, along with plenty of organic tofu of course. 
    In my opinion, this was well seasoned, and I really liked how they blended all of these nutritional ingredients to make not just a healthy breakfast alternative, but a tasty one as well. 
    Amy's Gluten-free Tofu Scramble is wrapped up like a burrito, but I would have to say that the texture of the wrap reminds me more of a crêpe than it does a tortilla, but I like it just the same.  In addition to tasting great, this wrap contains 11 grams of protein and has no trans fat, MSG or preservatives – not a bad way to start the day!

    When a company comes out with a new energy drink, I'm generally skeptical—I mean, you're talking to a serious coffee drinker here!   But after trying this great new product from IDLife, I have now made the switch. No more coffee in the afternoon—only IDLife's energy drink.
    The recommended scoop gives sustained energy from late morning to mid-afternoon and the berry flavor tastes delicious. While this energy drink does contain caffeine, the boost you get is obviously very different from a cup of coffee. Some important ingredients include Bitter Orange Extract, Quercetin and Taurine.  
    Bitter orange stimulates the digestive function by stimulating production of digestive enzymes.  Quercetin is an antioxidant that provides cardiovascular protection. Taurine is an amino acid that helps regulate the level of water and mineral salts in the blood.  
    Something else I really like is that this energy drink is sweetened with stevia, not sugar. And last, but not least, it contains red beet powder which is a rich source of protein. A jar of this magical powder lasts a long time and is much less expensive than pre-made liquid energy drinks.  It also comes in handy travel packets.

    Hello SabineHP, Sorry you are not feeling your best.  The advice you got so far in this thread is very good. Personally I do think that preparation is sometimes a challenge, but you can always watch a funny show or listen to good music while preparing your food. I have less food stress now because I always have 2 or 3 meals ready for spontaneous events. Eating whole foods as much as possible frees you from the burden of reading labels. I am finally getting around to getting meds together so
    cyclinglady is the one who gets chronic autoimmune urticaria. I sure am glad I don't! Keeping my fingers crossed. I have 3 AI diseases & hope that's the end count.
    Hello Everyone, Hope this finds you well. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a compassionate and caring Doctor may it be Functional or Medical etc. in the Vancouver area? I have contacted the Celiac groups, however they are not allowed to release names. Thank you kindly in advance for your time. Happy Healing.
