Cilantro Pepita Chicken Salad
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 15th, 2013 at 8:23 pm
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?...

5-Hour (Worth The?) Energy
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted April 3rd, 2013 at 8:13 pm
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...

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,...

Review: Cybele’s Free to Eat Vegan & Gluten Free Cookies

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...

Fish Fooled: Happening Everywhere

In breaking news, human beings lie. In fact, it’s one of the things that make us most human. And it’s especially prevalent in situations where the liar stands to make a lot of money and has little or no chance of being caught. This unfortunate circumstance has recently come to light in...

Gluten-Free Los Angeles: Stout Burgers & Beers

A few weekends ago, my husband and I headed out to a super fun dinner with friends in Hollywood. While the company was top-notch, our dinner was a little shaken up by an insanely loud fire alarm that went on for at least 10 minutes, during which time the four of us were out on the fire escape/stairwell...

Ramp-ing It Up: Onion Gone Wild

It’s been a long winter, and any sign that the cold season is giving way to spring, warmth, and life is definitely a good thing. Many people turn to the noble groundhog and its shadow (or lack thereof) to get a sense of how far away spring is, but the plant kingdom has its own way of signaling...

It’s Pho Real: Gotta Try This Soup

Hi everybody, it’s KC. Andrew’s right (of course he is), Pho should be Gluten Free! But since some commercial soup bases or broth bases can have gluten, and we don’t know what all restaurants are using, you’ll want to check up before you order up your Pho. (And, as Andrew...

Duck: (Not) Just For Quacks
by Gluten Free Advocates + Experts, Posted February 13th, 2013 at 9:24 pm
They say a duck’s quack doesn’t produce an echo. This may or may not be true, and until enough highly scientific research is done with ducks in tunnels, we won’t know the answer. It seems like one of those urban myths that could actually be true…but then again, how could it? Either...
