gfcf_glutino_cerealI have been eating Glutino Gluten-Free Honey Nut Cereal  for breakfast for the past few days. As many people on the GFCF Diet already know, finding a good breakfast cereal can be tricky business.  However, Glutino seems to have made a real effort at making their cereal taste like something other than flavored sawdust!

Glutino Gluten-Free Honey Nut Cereal is described as being, “corn cereal rings flavored with honey and nut.” It is definitely not a gluten-free copy of Honey Nut Cheerios, though. The strongest flavor I could taste was definitely the honey flavor, but it’s different from other cereals flavored with honey because it actually tastes like real honey, not an imitation flavor.  The cereal has a satisfying crunch to it, even when in milk. The other plus about the cereal is that it is very low in sugar, only 4g per serving; an important factor in choosing a cereal to feed your child.

One main negative about the cereal is that it is not rated as “non-GMO” and I am really trying to eliminate GMO’s (aka, “non-genetically-modified organisms”) from our diet here at home (more on that soon in an upcoming post). So, I probably won’t purchase this cereal again unless they can certify it as “non-GMO”. (For information on what is certified non-GMO, click here.)

Today, I have a special announcement! I’ve launched a new website, GFCF Diet Plan, to help you succeed with the Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Diet. I’ve been asked by so many people for help in following this difficult diet that I felt it would be a great idea to put a website together to help people succeed with the GFCF Diet.

Don’t worry, though! I will continue to run this blog where I can offer you recipes and other great articles about all things related to gluten-free, casein-free living. I’m just trying to provide you with a more in-depth guide to succeeding with the GFCF Diet.  I hope you will check out the website and also sign up for my mailing list so you won’t miss out on anything!

 

luggage_tagIt’s summertime…a time that many people go on vacation. But, what if you’re gluten-free? How can you manage travelling outside your comfort zone and still feel like you can find something to eat that won’t make you sick? The answer is found at Gluten Free Traveller! This website is chock full of information about different cities around the globe and where you can eat gluten-free in each of them.  For those of us worried about finding places to eat in far off places, this website is definitely something to consult when planning your next vacation/trip.

Here’s a snippet about the creator of this website:

“My name is Laura. I’m originally from Scotland (hence the British spellings throughout this website).  I was diagnosed with coeliac disease in August 2009. I cannot eat gluten ever again and even the tiniest crumb will make me sick. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye but it’s not as simple as just avoiding bread, pasta and beer like some people might think.”

The best thing about this website is that it’s written by people who have actually been to the locations, rather than a generic story or obvious advice like, “Ask what the ingredients are in the food you order.” By listing actual restaurants and location tips, you can really use this website when planning your trip, similar to how you would gather advice from a friend who has already been to the location that you plan to visit. Now, the only thing is….where do I want to go next!

This week, I was asked to do a vegetarian recipe for the Stockpiling Moms website.  I tweaked a recipe from another cookbook and came up with Gluten Free Slow Cooker Squash and Apples. This is an easy appetizer or side dish, or perhaps even a low-sugar dessert for some.  It smells lovely while it is cooking too.  Nicholas agreed that it tastes like warm apple pie.  He gave it 6 Thumbs Up!

I have exciting news to share with you! I’ve been asked to contribute a weekly gluten-free recipe at a fabulous website called Stockpiling Moms. Melissa Jennings and Shelley King are the two hardworking moms behind this great site.  You can find information on how to get great deals with coupons, even gluten-free coupons, learn about restaurant deals, or even how to plan a frugal party. But, don’t forget that I’m now going to be posting one of my recipes there in the Gluten Free Recipe Section every Thursday! I’ll put up a link here each week too, just in case you forget….

This week’s recipe is for Gluten-Free Korean Grilled Beef Strips and they are really tasty. Nick gave this recipe at least 12 thumbs up and exclaimed, “Finally, meat with taste!” and then proceeded to wolf down every bit of meat on his plate.  He was very disappointed that there wasn’t much left for seconds.  Guess I learned my lesson – better make a lot more next time!
