    Gluvana Complete Gluten-Free All Purpose Mix

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.
    Gluvana Complete Gluten-Free All Purpose Mix - The finished Gluvana cupcakes.
    Caption: The finished Gluvana cupcakes.

    For my first gluten-free baking experience, I made vanilla cupcakes with orange-flavored frosting using Gluvana Complete Gluten-Free All Purpose Mix. I also made a batch of gluten-containing cupcakes using the same recipe to allow for comparison. I didn't do blind taste testing or anything like that, but I can honestly say that the cupcakes made with Gluvana's flour were better.

    Gluvana CupcakesThe gluten-free cupcakes had a pleasant consistency and a hint of a cornbread-like flavor that complimented the orange frosting well. The wheat flour cupcakes seemed dense and flavorless in comparison. I'm going to try subbing Gluvana into some other recipes to test its other applications, but thus far I am very impressed!

    Note: be sure to omit baking powder from your recipes, as Gluvana's mix already contains it.

    There is no skimping on ingredients or quality when it comes to Brookfarm’s Gluten-Free Macadamia Muesli.  This muesli is a true medley of gluten-free grains, and it includes buckwheat, brown rice, and amaranth—but there’s more…it also contains macadamia nuts, cranberries, raisins, soy flour and pumpkin kernels.
    Upon opening the bag, I immediately noticed an array of colors from this amazing variety of grains, nuts, seeds and fruit.  It was a pleasant surprise to see that they were using buckwheat, brown rice and amaranth as their main gluten-free grains, probably due to their outstanding nutritional benefits, including their high fiber content.  Likewise, macadamia nuts have been shown in studies to reduce bad cholesterol, and increase good cholesterol, so I always try to find way to add them to my diet.
    I filled my bowl about half-full with this delicious muesli mixture, and then poured about two cups of plain yogurt on top and mixed it all together.  Upon tasting it I discovered that this muesli has a very nice texture combination—it is not overly crunchy, sweet or salty—as I have found to be the case with other brands of muesli.  It seems to have just the right-balance of crunchiness, sweetness and saltiness, and all of its wholesome ingredients seem to blend together perfectly to create an outstanding muesli. 
    Brookfarm’s Gluten-Free Macadamia Muesli is much better than the muesli that I got used to eating when I was exchange student in Germany, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a healthy meal to start their day.  This is a “feel good” meal or snack that will leave you satisfied.  If you are a fan of muesli you will love this Australian treat, and even if you are not a muesli fan I believe you will still enjoy Brookfarm’s Gluten-Free Macadamia Muesli!
    Brookfarm can be found in selected Whole Foods, Wegmans, Central Markets, and many other fine food stores. More info can be found at their Web site: www.brookfarm.com.au

    Amy's recently came out with their "Sonoma" Veggie Burger, which is not only gluten free, but soy and dairy free as well. The Sonoma veggie burger is packed with organic whole ingredients so there was a level of comfort knowing exactly what I would be putting into my body.  I am not a vegetarian, but I am trying to eat more health consciously, so I thought I would give them a try.
    I wanted to toss them on the grill, but the weather was not cooperating, so I just popped them in the oven for about 5 minutes each side and "ta-da," they were done.  The Sonoma Veggie Burger was well-seasoned and had a nice nutty quality that is usually found in veggie/grain-based patties.  The outside of the patty was firm and slightly crisp, with a semi-soft interior. 
    I piled on the fixings and was about to dig in when the smell had lured my two non-celiac, meat-eating children into the kitchen (despite the fact that they had just eaten).  I gave them each a bite and both girls said it was good.  My youngest actually requested that I make Amy's veggie burgers next time it's burger night – no lie!
