    Second Helping Mama's Gluten-Free Meatballs

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Over the weekend I tried Second Helping's "Mama's Meatballs" and was pleasantly surprised. They are authentic, Italian style gluten-free meatballs that are made with all natural beef. In addition to being gluten-free they are also dairy/casein, nut and soy-free, and are non-GMO.

    Second Helping Mama's Gluten-Free MeatballsThe first thing I noticed about them is that they are good-sized and not greasy. It doesn't say low fat on the package, but to me it seems like they must be made from leaner, lower fat beef than most meatballs I've had, which I really like. They also have a very even, fine consistency, as though the beef is very finely ground, and again, perhaps leaner.

    The meatballs are perfectly seasoned with the usual Italian herbs, and I appreciate that they did not overdo it with the seasonings, as can be the case with other prepared meatballs I've tried.

    Here is another great product that makes life easier for those with celiac disease. Gluten-Free meatballs can take a lot of time and effort to make, and they usually don't turn out this good, so I normally just go without. Now I can simply keep a bag of these in my freezer or refrigerator for the moment that the spaghetti and meatballs craving hits me, and serve them on top of my favorite pasta and sauce!

In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014.

    Celiac.com 03/03/2010 - J.D.'s Best Gluten Free Pizza really lives up to the name. Handmade in a dedicated gluten-free facility, J.D.'s Best Gluten Free Pizza is incredible! Even my gluten loving boyfriend said it was one of the best pizza's he had ever eaten, gluten-free or not.
    As all pizza lovers know, it is impossible to find a gluten-free pizza that actually tastes like real pizza. Too often we choke down the gluten-free versions of so called“pizza” and accept begrudgingly that gluten-free also means flavor and texture-free. J.D.'s Best Gluten Free Pizza puts that theory to shame, and proves that gluten-free pizza does not have tobe flavor or ...

    If you are looking for a great alternative to traditional snacks like chips and cookies, you should try these Gluten-Free Black Pepper With Roasted Peanuts Savory Rice Snacks by Kameda Crisps. 
    They are light and crispy and have a bold delicious flavor like no other snack I have ever tried.   The great taste can be attributed to the fact that these snacks are baked (not fried) and they do not contain any trans fats. 
    A 5 oz. package will satisfy your urge for zest and crunch at the same time.

    The closest I will ever get to going to the moon in this lifetime is by eating this delicious cheese snack made by NutraDRIED LLP.  Made of 100% cheese, this delicious food is high in protein, low in carbs, low in sugar, and low in calories...what could be better for a snack any time of day or night? 
    In addition to the taste and the cool name,  this cheese comes in the shape of small round crunchy balls.  Full of cheddar flavor, Moon Cheese lives up to its name as an amazing out-of-this-world treat.
