    Jovial Foods Gluten-Free Organic Brown Rice Penne Rigate Pasta

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.
    Jovial Foods Gluten-Free Organic Brown Rice Penne Rigate Pasta -

    I recently tried Jovial Foods' Gluten-Free Organic Brown Rice Penne Rigate Pasta and was looking forward making my Grandmother's baked ziti dish using this penne rigate pasta.  Since I am super sensitive to gluten, I love the fact that Jovial Foods make their pasta in a dedicated gluten free facility and that it is also certified gluten-free.  

    I cooked the pasta just a few minutes under the required time on the packaging, since it would also be baked after.  When I sampled the pasta by itself, I was very pleased by the taste and texture.  After my tasting of Jovial Foods gluten free pasta, I had high hopes that my Grandmother's dish would finally turn out—not only for those that are gluten free in my family— but one that I can serve to those that are not on a gluten-free diet.

    When I took the dish from the oven it looked beautiful!  When I scooped out each serving, the pasta held its shape remarkably well, and everyone was excited to dig in.  Jovial's Brown Rice Penne Rigate was a success and sadly we didn't have any left overs, but I know I will be making this dish with Jovial's pasta again soon.

    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.

    I just discovered a whole new world in gluten free grocery shopping!  Zeer.com is an easy-to-use Web site that offers a service, called Zeer Select, to those on a gluten-free diet.  Zeer Select is a database of over 30,000 mainstream products, each with its own gluten-free safety status.  I’m talking about easy-to-find items that you can locate in a “regular” grocery store.  I was able to simply search for the gluten-free status of a product by category, product name, or UPC code.  If I searched for products which turned out not to be gluten-free it would recommend a similar product that was gluten-free.
    One of my favorite features of Zeer.com was how each product was assigned a gluten-free safety status and symbol.  The safety levels are based on the ingredients as well as the manufacturers’ statements.  Not only are the products assigned their own gluten-free safety status, but the questionable or “not safe” ingredients are highlighted with links that further explain why particular ingredients are not considered gluten-free.
    Each item also included detailed product information, including its ingredients and nutritional facts (and not just its gluten-free status).  This is another great feature for those who are watching things like their sodium or carbohydrate intake, or those who might be looking for food items with extra fiber. 
    On top of all this, Zeer.com includes the manufacturer contact information in case you have any questions or concerns and need to speak directly to the company about the product. They are also continuously updating their site by adding or updating around 500 new products each week, and I appreciated that they list the date on which each product was last updated¬, knowing this really built up my confidence in this web site. 
    Whether you are new to a gluten-free diet or feel like your options are limited, I would highly recommend Zeer.com to help you prepare your next gluten-free shopping list!

    Finding affordable, gluten-free skin care products can be a chore. But, thanks to Joelle's Cosmetics' one-stop gluten-free skin care shop, the world of cosmetics has been revolutionized, and shopping for gorgeous gluten-free make-up has never been easier or more affordable.
    There are just too many amazing products, so I'm not sure where to start! Joelle's 14-Piece Deluxe Gluten-Free Make-up Kit is a perfect starter kit. It comes equipped with everything; including a stylish, self-contained organizer with interior zipper pouches (perfect for travel), a 7-piece professional vegan brush set with luxuriously soft brushes, and dazzling mineral make-up including: silky foundations (liquid or mineral), glamorous mineral eye colors and satiny finishing powders.
    I've looked everywhere for gluten-free liquid foundation, so when I found out that Joelle's makes it I was so excited, and I was not disappointed. When I finished my home make-over, using Joelle's step by step instructions for professional mineral application, I really looked like a new, improved me! Any unwanted blemishes and lines disappeared with the final stroke of the mineral veil and I was left with soft, flawless skin and gorgeous all-day coverage.

    I was very surprised when I received a care package of Hail Merry's gluten-free blonde macaroons.  I absolutely love coconut and have always had bit of a sweet tooth, but in the past I haven't always had the best of luck with gluten-free macaroons.  Usually, I find macaroons to be way too sweet, high in fat and calories or the texture is just wrong.  Despite the charming packaging that contained these macaroons, I still had my doubts – but who am I kidding?  I love coconut! 
    When I took my first bite I noticed that the texture of these macaroons was soft, slightly chewy, but not overly sweet – I guess they read my mind about my usual complaints about most macaroons – they tasted great.  I found the size of each macaroon (just short of the size of a golf ball) was just the perfect size to get satisfaction for a sweet tooth like me, but the best part is that they only have 70 calories and 5.5 grams of fat each!  How can this be? 
    Upon further reading of their packaging I noticed that Hail Merry didn't cut any corners when they developed these little bites of goodness!  The ingredient list is short , wholesome and surprisingly these macaroons are not only raw and vegan, but are only lightly sweetened with maple syrup.  I must also mention that shredded coconut has twice the fiber of oats, and that coconut oil is known to contribute to healthier hair, skin and can help aid proper digestion. 
    I absolutely loved the taste of these macaroons with their real coconut flavor and texture!  These macaroons give a "junk food" taste with the quality and nutrition that you wouldn't expect from such a nice little treat – in my book they are definitely worth trying!

    I just tried Kay's Naturals Gluten-free Almond Delight Protein Puffs and I have to say that they were not a disappointment. 
    With only 115 calories, 12 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fat (no trans fats) per serving, I was a bit skeptical, but this crunchy snack kept me satisfied between meals--guilt free!  I love that it is made with real almond meal and almond butter because I just despise any artificial flavorings.  These little puffs are packaged in individual serving sized bags, which are not only convenient but they help keep the flavors and textures fresh.

    I recently tried Crunchmaster's Cheezy Crisps, which are little triangle-shaped gluten-free cheese-flavored rice crackers, and I must say that it was hard to put them down! This is the type of snack where one serving size may as well just be "one box" because it is that difficult to stop eating them.
    The first thing you notice when you put one in your mouth is the taste of real cheddar cheese, which always goes great with crackers. They taste almost like you are eating a piece of baked cheddar cheese, which reminds me of the fact that the crackers are baked and not fried, so they are healthier than some alternative cheese snacks that are on the market. I also like the fact that they use 100% whole grain corn and brown rice flour as the base of these crackers, and there is 22g of whole grain per serving (which means that I almost had 88g of fiber!).
    Overall I think these crackers would be a good addition to any party, or just to have around for your kids or yourself--just make sure you don't eat the whole box!

    I tried out a new app called “Gluten Free Bartender.”  This app is designed to make life easier for people to find gluten-free drinks. The “Drinks” section opens by default, and in it you will find categories: beers, champagne, ciders, liquors, mixers, wine coolers, wines, and miscellaneous.
    What I really liked about the app was the ability to view categories by brand, or by recipes that can be made using a particular brand.  You can also easily add items and recipes to a “Favorites” list. Another nice feature is the ability to see dated gluten-free information about the product which comes directly from the manufacturer, including contact information.
    Visit their site for more info.

    Celiac.com 10/23/2014 - 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.
