Which of these Certified Gluten Free (and many Vegan) Ben and Jerry’s flavors do you already love or want to try?? 🤤👇 SWIPE to see them all! In honor of it being Friday Eve, I wanted to share a post on all 23 @benandjerrys Certified Gluten Free flavors (as shown on their website + in stores) 😍 — including some vegan ones for my gluten and dairy free peeps! 🥳 The flavors I find most near me in Colorado Springs are Phish Food (my TOP FAVE), Cherry Garcia (meh), and Karamel Sutra (one of my second faves) at stores like Walmart, Safeway, Target and King Soopers. But while I was in New Jersey for work, I was psyched to find the GF & Dairy Free Bananas Foster and Boom Chocolatta (with a gluten free Cookie Core‼️🤯) — at ShopRite and Stop and Shop. Share this post with a gluten free foodie who may not realize all these Certified Gluten Free flavors exist! 🥰 And if you aren’t already, follow @collegeceliackc for even more gluten free product reviews, round ups and more. ☺️ And as a friendly reminder, always double check ingredients to ensure they meet your dietary needs (and are one of these Certified Gluten Free flavors and not a gluteny one you grabbed by accident). I hope y’all have a super yummy upcoming gluten free weekend! What’s your fave ice cream flavor or gluten free find lately?? 👇 . . . . . #dairyfreefinds #whatceliacseat #dairyfreeicecream #glutenfreetreats #glutenfreedessert #senzaglutine #glutenfreeeating #vegantreats #benandjerrys #certifiedglutenfree #freefrom #noglutennoproblem #glutenintolerant #nowheat #celiaclifestyle #celiacsafe #glutenfreecookies #glutenfreeproducts #benandjerrysicecream #cookiedoughicecream

Share this post with a fellow gluten free Target lover so they don’t make this simple mistake‼️ I’ve shared the Target brand gummies that contain wheat (from wheat starch that that isn’t marked as being processed enough to make it gluten free) a couple times before, and EVERY time, at least a couple of y’all have confused it with the certified gluten free box shown here.…🤔 👉 So I wanted to call out that these are actually two DIFFERENT brands (though both created by Target) with a similar design and product. ⚠️ So take this as your friendly reminder to double check labels, even on a product you’ve been buying regularly. Because the ingredients could change OR it could be a similar but unsafe product that you grabbed in a rush. 😅 Did you know about these lookalike gummies? Or have you ever grabbed the wrong box of something before? 🙃 . . . . . #gluten #glutenfreelifestyle #celiacdisease #celiacfriendly #celiacdiseaseawareness #wheatfree #glutenintolerance #gffood #gfdiet #noglutennoproblem #wheatallergy #coeliacdisease #celiacs #glutenfreefood #glutened #foodallergyawareness #targetfinds #glutenfreesnacks #glutenfreefoodie #glutenfreedessert

Which of these new + surprising gluten free products from Trader Joe’s are you most excited about?? Info on which are also DAIRY FREE 👇😍 I personally stick to Trader Joe’s products that are labeled gluten free (I have gotten glutened by unlabeled items from Trader Joe’s before 😫), which is why I only share products labeled GF on this page. And I was excited to find some desserts labeled gluten free on the back! 🥰 And if you are gluten and dairy free, many of the new gluten free products featured here are both, including: 🍤 The Breaded Shrimp (love these in the air fryer and used for tacos!) 🐟 The Battered Halibut — pricy but a delicious treat 🙊 Vanilla meringues, which are labeled gluten free on the back 🍳 Egg wrap tortillas 😋 The riced cauliflower stir fry is also vegan!

Is it right? No. Is it common? Yessss. 😅🤦‍♀️ 👉 Sometime a girl just needs a t-shirt that says “Just because I’m gluten free doesn’t mean I don’t have a BIG appetite.” 🙃 (Btw…I am still working on merch! If ya have any requests, lemme know. 😉) What’s the craziest size or price difference you’ve seen between gluten and gluten free products?? 👇 PS — if you can relate to finding gluten free products half the size but twice the price of regular 🙄, check out my “GF $$ saving” story highlight on my profile, @collegeceliackc.

Where is YOUR fave spot for eating out gluten free and dairy free? 🤔 Sharing 6 of mine by request of y’all! More deets on all 👇 *Like I always say, restaurant chains can vary in safety, training and dedicated fryer space by location. These 7 restaurants are usually celiac friendly and good with preventing cross contact but always check your location‼️* 🍕 @mellowmushroom has a variety of certified gluten free safe pizzas. The gluten free pizza crust is also vegan and you can sub vegan cheese. Be sure to specify you don’t want your pizza finished with fresh parm and garlic butter, as is usually done. 🥪 @jerseymike’s gluten free bread contains eggs but no dairy. Most sandwiches can be made on their gluten free bread. Ask employees to change gloves and utensils, prepare your sandwich on parchment paper, & you can request fresh ingredients from the back. 🍲 @cava has a nutrition menu available online where you can see all their gluten free and dairy free options. Their Balsamic Date Chicken is one of my faves that’s GF & DF. 🤤 @chipotle is a gluten free and dairy free og with the only gluten items being their flour tortillas (they do warn that their corn salsa and corn chips could be cross contacted in the growing fields) and the only dairy items being the cheese and queso 🍤 @zoeskitchen has all their gluten free options clearly noted on the menu and you can also check for dairy options using their online nutritional menu. I love the salmon and shrimp kabobs. 🥢 @pfchangs has a pretty extensive gluten free menu with several dairy free options, like pad Thai and their lettuce wraps. All gluten free orders are served on uniquely colored plates. Are you gluten free and dairy free, just gluten free or have other intolerances? And this is def not an extensive list so should I make a part 2!?👇 . . . . . #glutenfreeeating #glutenfreetravel #glutenfreerestaurant #celiacdisease #celiacdiet #glutenfreedairyfree #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreefamily #glutenfreesandwich #gffoodie #glutenfreenoodles #glutenfreepizza #glutenfreefollowme #veganpizza #celiacliving #nocrumbsplease #glutenfreebread #lactoseintolerant #whatceliacseat #dairyallergy

Has anyone else been shamed in a gluten free Facebook group for eating something that’s celiac safe — but “too unhealthy”? Or met someone who thinks everyone who eats gluten free wants to lose weight or eat 100% healthy? 🤦‍♀️🙋‍♀️ In honor of what I hope is a yummy St. Patrick’s Day for all of us, here’s a friendly reminder that you should never feel bad about enjoying a gluten free treat. Especially if it’s one as rare and yummy as these gluten free eclairs from @sprouts. 🤤 👉 And no, not everyone who avoids processed foods may be unhappy. 😉 You do you, and I’m ALWAYS happy for anyone who finds the diet that makes them feel best. 🫶 Because we ALL are different. BUT if someone is shaming others for being excited to eat gluten free treats they haven’t enjoyed since their celiac diagnosis…they may want to reflect on their priorities. 🤷‍♀️ And as someone who battled pretty bad disordered eating, I can personally say that I’m MUCH happier now that I don’t hate myself for eating dessert most nights a week. 🙃 So if you’ve ever experienced food shaming, please know that this is a safe place. 🙏 Where I share ALL gluten free foods — and you choose which meet your dietary needs. 🥰 And I hope you have a delicious gluten free St. Patty’s weekend! Are you gonna enjoy any special treats this weekend? Or have you heard comments like this before? 🤦‍♀️🙃👇 PS —if you’re new here, hiiii 👋. I share gluten free humor, new product round ups and more at @collegeceliackc.
