Luscious Lemon Tart
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted May 20th, 2013 at 8:25 pm
There was a time after my diagnoses with Celiac Disease where I was certain–certain–that good sweets were behind me. I cried. A lot. (Just ask my family). I cried for my Nana’s pancakes and shortbread cookies that would never cross my lips again. I cried for my favorite boxed spice cake...

Bacon: Delicious, But Nutritious?
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted May 15th, 2013 at 8:34 pm
Mmmmmm, bacon. It is perhaps the perfect food. Salty, savory, fatty, sweet, and spicy (if it’s peppered), it hits just about every note on your palette with perfect pitch and flawless delivery. It’s no wonder America is absolutely downright head-over-heels obsessed with it… and that’s...

New Hope for Diabetics?
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted May 10th, 2013 at 8:09 pm
To say diabetes is a major problem in today’s society would be the ultimate understatement. Diabetes is everywhere you look and almost everyone is either affected personally by it or knows someone who is. Type 1 diabetes, the condition in which the pancreas does not produce insulin, has been...

Getting to Know Gluten
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted May 1st, 2013 at 8:21 pm
It is something that an increasing number of Americans are avoiding like the plague. Relatively speaking, it has just burst onto the nutrition and health scene, transcending its nerdy nutrition textbook roots to become part of the American lexicon. Now almost everyone knows what it is, and...

After an interruption for surgery involving my spine, Snack It To Me is back. And it is back in a big way. I transferred to U of I as a junior, and was on my third college. (Apparently fashion design classes do not transfer to other schools as they do not apply to real world skills, so I went...

It’s a Gluten-Free Basil Corn Muffin with Goat Cheese!
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 26th, 2013 at 8:59 pm
Yes, it is. Clearly, it’s been muffin week at my house. Which I highly recommend, btw. And the best way to end this muffin-o-rama is with this beaut. It’s a gluten-free basil corn muffin, then you stuff it with goat cheese. STUFF IT WITH GOAT CHEESE. And here I was just using butter this...

Tempeh: G-Free and Meat-Free
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 24th, 2013 at 8:27 pm
Meat is a wonderful thing. Ask any traditional omnivorous human being his or her opinion on meat, and chances are that they will tell you they can’t live without it. In a sense they’re right, we are all here in part because our ancestors had access to meat. Our very dental structure indicates...

Review: Bakery on Main Instant Oatmeal
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 22nd, 2013 at 10:02 pm
It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed Bakery on Main and their flavored instant oatmeal. Their strawberry, oatmeal, and maple flavors were just too sweet for my taste for breakfast – I like a little more subdued taste. But, I did dig the gluten-free grains that they included – including...

Snack it to me: Cherry Cordial Snack Mix
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 22nd, 2013 at 9:49 pm
Chocolate should be a food group. And, in my professional opinion, it should be the base of the pyramid. I mean, it is full of anti-oxidants and theobromine. It has been purported to do everything from boost your mood to decrease your appetite. Small studies have found that it is good for...

Snack it to me: Sour Patched Trail Mix
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 19th, 2013 at 8:29 pm
Life has been missing a little bit of its sparkle lately. Things that used to make me happy are just sort of there. My hands don’t want to knit anymore. My lips have been having a hard time remembering how to smile. My heart has started to feel a little heavier. I think I might have a case...

Gluten-Free Corn Dogs Are a Beautiful Thing
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 17th, 2013 at 8:48 pm
Oh yes. These beauties made an appearance in my home this weekend, and I’m trying to figure out a way to justify making these on a regular basis. Homemade gluten-free corn dogs, you guys. CORN DOGS. Now, I just have to find out where I can buy those rectangular cheese bars so I can fry those...

Insomnia and Heart Health: A New Link
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 17th, 2013 at 8:47 pm
Getting a good amount of consistent, quality sleep is perhaps the best thing we can do for our health. And we know that not getting enough sleep can have disastrous consequences, from fatigue to crankiness and irritability to poor mental performance and everything in between. Not getting enough...

So hey, it’s tax day! It’s always a slightly harrowing  experience for us, these tax days. One thing that we’ve learned is that procrastination doesn’t make the filing deadline disappear. Sadly, year after year, it sits before us like some enormous crap-shoot;  Will we owe money?...

Snack it to me: Fairy Berry Trail Mix
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 15th, 2013 at 7:58 pm
My desk has two drawers, a shoe drawer and a snack drawer. I might be a snack food junkie. Well, sort of. Living gluten-free for 7 years, I have learned to never take access to safe food for granted. Every time I go out to a new restaurant, there is a snack in my bag of some kind. Sometimes...

Elimination Diet: Right For You?
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 12th, 2013 at 8:18 pm
The word “diet” is intimidating enough without adding the word “elimination” to it. Talk about adding insult to injury, salting the wound, kicking a man while he’s down, or whatever other metaphor you find to be the most appropriate. But have no fear (or at least, less fear), because...

Gluten-Free Meusli Breakfast Cookies

I am not a morning person. I have never been a morning person. In fact, I have painful memories from my childhood, where I was forced to sit with my family each morning and have breakfast. My father–definitely an early bird–would chirp questions at me in rapid fire; How did you sleep?...

It’s everywhere you look. It’s all over pop culture and commercials, everyone knows about it, and many are doing it. No, it’s not the Harlem Shake and no, it’s not Gangnam style. However, it is 5-Hour Energy, and drinking one may just make you feel like busting out one of these trendy...

Gluten-Free Baked Maple Glazed Doughnuts
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 1st, 2013 at 5:39 pm
One thing I have missed terribly since going gluten-free is a good doughnut. It’s not like I ate a lot of them BGF (before gluten-free)–I would indulge perhaps a few times a year. But just the fact that I couldn’t have one, the idea that people could line up at the apple orchard for...

Heart Disease An Ancient Problem Too?
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted March 27th, 2013 at 8:20 pm
Typically, we think of heart disease as a modern problem. After all, it is the #1 killer of both men and women in today’s society. In fact, 1 out of 4 deaths in the United States is caused by heart disease. You would think with modern technology that we would have a clear understanding of...

Golden Rice and the GMO Controversy

The debate over genetically modified foods (GMO’s) is one with fervent viewpoints and opinions on both sides. We humans love us some controversy, and the debate over whether or not we should be genetically modifying our food is one that rages today and will into the future. In the last election,...

I met so many awesome people at the GFAF San Fran expo a few weeks ago! I loved every minute of it – even the ones where I was slamming coffee at the blogger/author table waiting for caffeine to kick in so I could get my second wind! At our table where I spent most of my free time was the...

Bro-Gurt: This One’s For The Boys
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted March 13th, 2013 at 8:18 pm
Men are used to getting products made and marketed specifically for them. It’s very important to us that everything from our deodorant to our razor blades to our cars to our cell phones all scream raw and unbridled masculinity. If a product is considered feminine or girly in any way, very...

Mediterranean Tuna & White Bean Salad
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted March 6th, 2013 at 9:35 pm
You may be guessing that I’m kind of obsessed with main-course salads these days. And I’d have to say that you’re right. I’ve never really been a sandwich-for-lunch kind of girl. So when we don’t have leftovers to heat up, I start digging in the pantry and the produce bins to come...
