Earlier this year, Pysch Central's former blog editor Jessica Digiacinto told "Your Body, Your Mind" readers why she started eating a gluten-free diet and even shared the recipe for a gluten-free chia seed pudding and her own review of what she calls the best gluten-free bread.
Somewhere in the midst of all that, Jessica challenged me to a gluten-lite...
Happy Friday, readers!
The holiday season is in full swing, and with all the parties and family gatherings usually comes food.
Lots of food.
Vegetable and cheese trays are popular staples this time of year. They're convenient, simple to prepare, and affordable to buy if you're short on time!
So, I thought now would be a good time to review my favorite brand of gluten-free crackers for those of you who want or...
So, during a regular appointment earlier this week, my doctor confirmed what I've suspected for the past couple of months: My hormones are completely out of whack.
Ever dealt with a hormonal imbalance? It's pretty stressful. Not only can it cause weight problems and wreak havoc on your skin , but a hormonal imbalance sometimes brings mental health symptoms like depression, anxiety, and disorientation....
Between my gluten-free food reviews and all the gluten-free activity going on over at Therapy Soup (check out The Gluten-Mood Connection to get started and then check out some gluten-free menus and download your copy of a gluten-free food and mood log), you probably already have a solid working knowledge of some common gluten-free foods.
Still, unless you've been...
Continuing with my efforts to review gluten-free foods for folks who follow GF diets for various physical and mental health reasons (plus, GF foods I have to actually make - like the gluten-free brownies - and not just those I can warm in the microwave - like the gluten-free cinnamon rolls...even though they were delicious!), last week I...
I am absolutely loving my gluten-lite journey!
Sure, not everything I've reviewed has been delicious. There've definitely been some not-so-great products (like the gluten-free hot dog buns 9 yuck!).
But, there've been some great ones, too (like the gluten-free bread - I still buy this - gluten-free cinnamon rolls, and most recently,...
I spent this past weekend in Asheville, North Carolina.
If you've never been, Asheville is an amazing city in North Carolina, part of a four-county metropolitan area and popular for its gorgeous mountains, live music, arts and crafts, locally grown and organic food, historical attractions like the Biltmore Estate and Thomas Wolfe House,
Asheville is home to numerous breweries (such as
When I first started my gluten-lite journey, it was easy to imagine some types of gluten-free foods.
For example, fruits and vegetables are gluten free, as are fresh eggs, meat, seeds and nuts, and most dairy products.
However, wrapping my brain around other gluten-free versions of certain foods, like breads and pastas, was a different story.
I've since discovered that I like some gluten-free bread, I'm...
It's a nice, lazy kind of afternoon for brunch, isn't it?
(Well, it would be if you're reading this at the time of publishing, ha!)
If you're looking for a gluten-free food for breakfast or brunch - one that will fill you up as well as satisfy your sweet tooth - might I suggest Udi's Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls?
That's right! It's time for another review in my ongoing gluten-lite journey!
Another gluten-free food review, hot off the press!
Unfortunately, this one isn't as favorable as the others have been.
I say "unfortunately" because, well, not only is this one unfavorable, but also there's just NOTHING good I can say about this product!
Ener-G Tapioca Hot Dog Buns. These hot dog buns are gluten free as well as free of dairy, soy, eggs, and nuts, so they're suitable for a variety of dietary needs and choices.
