GIVEAWAY Have you heard that @flax4life has new cookies? We love their brownies, and were so excited to try the cookies! Flax 4 life was kind enough to send us some to try - they were even thoughtful enough to remember that Jax can't eat the 2 flavors that have oats (oatmeal raisin and apple pie). We were #gifted Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Cherry, Ginger Snap and Lemon Zest. And boy have we had fun taste testing these! They are delicious. The Lemon Zest is my favorite and would be perfect with a cup of tea! I think it would be fun to make ice cream sandwiches with one of the chocolate flavors! Anyway, we want to give 1 follower a $35 Flax4Life gift card to choose your own goodies from Flax4Life's website! You can use it for cookies, brownies, muffins, granola - whatever you choose! To enter: 1. Follow @flax4life and @glutenfreefinds_pa 2. Like this photo 3. Tag all of your friends in the comments - each separate tag counts as an entry! Giveaway ends 1/28/21. Winner announced 1/29/21. Must be 18 or older. USA residents only. Must enter on Instagram (not Facebook).

How do you make a cracker so inclusive that everybody can eat it? You make it top 14 allergen free, that's how! And that's what @everybody_eating did with their delicious crackers! They even made a cheese-less cheese flavor! We were #gifted a variety pack of all 4 flavors of Every Body Eat Crackers. Note: I wish I had more pictures of the crackers and not just the bags, but we ate them so fast! Jax and I opened the 1st bag of Sea Salt Chia while playing a game of Sleeping Queens (a fun card game if you haven't tried it) and we almost finished the bag in one sitting. That's how good they are. Somehow the Chive & Garlic and Cheese-Less Cheese almost disappeared as quickly over the next few days. But I think I was the only one brave enough to eat the Fiery Chile Lime. Let me tell you - they are spicy! They definitely require a glass of water nearby. Seriously though, they were very tasty and I enjoyed them crumbled on some butternut squash soup to take away some of the fiery taste! These crackers are delicious, super crunchy and I love that they are free of so many allergens. Other than spices and seasonings, the ingredients are pretty simple - potato starch, rice flour and olive oil. That's it! We definitely recommend trying these! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreecrackers #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreesnacks #dairyfree #glutenfreedairyfree #dairyfreefood #dairyfreesnacks #veganfood #vegansnacks #vegan #freefrom #allergyfriendly #top14free #womanowned #buywomenowned #foodallergy #foodallergyawareness #allergyfree #celiacfriendly #glutenfreevegan #crackers #healthysnack #celiac #celiacdisease #ketosnacks #paleosnacks

It's soup season! Nothing better than a bowl of soup for lunch in the wintertime. So I was pretty excited when @eatpropergood offered to send me a sampling of their gluten free soups. These shelf stable soups are pretty cool. You literally take the paper packaging off, snip off the top of the plastic container and stick it in the microwave. And you have a hearty, delicious meal. And they'll ship it right to your door. By the way, a pouch is 2 servings. The soup options are so interesting. I started with Pumpkin spice which had a light curry flavor to it. Does anyone else add crumbled crackers to their soup for extra crunch, or is it just me? Next I tried broccoli cheddar which made for a very filling lunch. I am working my way through the others. Many of the soups are also keto, and they are made from clean, healthy ingredients. Some are plant based - did someone say say butternut squash? All of them contain good for you ingredients with health benefits - like bone broth and turmeric. If you order 6 or more soups, shipping is free. And if you click on the link in my bio you can get a 15% discount on your 1st order. Just make sure you filter by gluten free - not all of the soups are GF (like the ones with noodles). #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreesoup #pumpkinsoup #butternutsquashsoup #keto #ketosoup #bonebroth #eatpropergood #cleaningredients #celiac #celiacdisease #celiacfood #celiaclife #glutenfreelife #fooddelivery #foodsubscription #shelfstable #healthymeals #soupseason #plantbased #vegan #easymeals #easylunch #glutenfreelunch #healthyeating #cleandiet #cleaneats #gifted

It's always inspiring to read the founder of a company's story and how they created their product or company. In this case, the owner, a business school grad, was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and was not satisfied with the gluten free cookie options on the market. She sought to create and sell a better product that was "healthy and tasty" for those that have to eat gluten free. In a few short years @mightymonkeybakery has 7 varieties of cookies and they are available at Whole Foods from New York to Maine. I'd say that is success. We opted to try the Brown Butter Chocolate Chip and the Double Dutch chocolate chip (are you sensing a chocolate theme?) which are both yummy. I like that the cookies come packaged in packs of 2, so that when you open the box you don't have to worry about the cookies getting stale. It's also convenient to grab a pack for on the go. There are also 2 vegan flavor options - Oatmeal Coconut and there is a vegan chocolate chip. If you're not on the East Coast you can order them directly from Mighty Monkey's web site. #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #kosher #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #glutenfreelife #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreecookies #glutenfreedessert #mightymonkeybakery #glutenfreebaking #celiacsafe #glutenfreefood #whatceliacseat #nogluten #glutenfreeeats #coeliac #brownbutterchocolatechipcookies #nopreservatives #glutenfreekosher #koshercookies #cleaningredients

If you are gluten free, when was the last time you had a soft pretzel? I don't mean to make you jealous, but we just had some yesterday. And not from a mix (though the ones from @momsplaceglutenfree are good) and not from the freezer (though Tonya’s are good too). But fresh from a soft pretzel factory? We recently found out about @a_and_a_soft_pretzel_baking_co, a family owned soft pretzel business in Camden, NJ just outside Philadelphia. They make regular soft pretzels (and have been since 1929) and recently started making a gluten free version. I have been wanting to get over there to try them and just haven't had a chance. Well, I got a message from them late Thursday night that they were doing a trial run Friday selling the gluten free soft pretzels at @crustvegan bakery in Manayunk about 2 miles from my house. I was pretty excited and ran (ok drove) there first thing Friday morning to pick some up. I got 3 plain and 1 everything. The pretzels are delicious. Very soft. I loved the everything seasoned one. The others were a little heavily salted. Decent in size (maybe a little bigger than the Tonya’s frozen ones) and only $2.25. That's better than when we paid $6 at a Flyers game last year! A&A also ships, delivers locally, does special orders and more! They make soft pretzel rolls, dippers and more. The pretzels are also vegan and nut free. I am so happy to know about these. They'd be great to special order for a party in the future (when things are back to normal)! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreepretzels #glutenfreesoftpretzel #vegan #nutfree #dairyfree #eggfree #pretzels #softpretzels #phillyfood #shoplocal #glutenfreephilly #southphilly #phillyfoodies #phillyfoodscene #manayunk #glutenfreevegan #phillyfood #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #glutenfreelife #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeeats #whatceliacseat #yophilly

Jax enjoys eating pigs in blankets and we have been unable to find his usual favorites made by @geefreefoods as they have stopped shipping during the pandemic. No stores near us carry this item. For a while I was able to order online at @glutenfreemall but they’ve been out of stock. So last night we got creative using @chebe_bread original cheese bread mix and made our own! I just prepared the dough as per the instructions on the box (but didn’t add the cheese). Then I broke it into smaller pieces and rolled it out and rolled the hot dog up inside. I didn’t have mini hot dogs on hand, so I used regular size @oscarmayer turkey hot dogs that Jax likes. I baked 35 minutes at 350 and Jax had a delicious dinner. I made 4 and used the rest of the dough to make small rolls. Other than our dog grabbing one off the tray, it all worked out well! I think you could make this work with most of the Chebe mixes. But I also hope we can find the mini @geefreefoods hot dogs soon!

It's National Gluten Free Day & I saw that @scharglutenfree is having 50% off some items online. I wanted to share with you some of our favorites we bought when they were having a sale on New Year's Eve. - Chocolate Stix - 2nd time buying these but they are delicious. A shortbread cookie covered in milk chocolate. If you know what a Cadbury finger is, it will remind you of that. You cannot eat just one! - Honeygrams - Perfect for s'mores and great to keep on hand. We've been using our outdoor fire pit a lot this winter. - Sch'nacks - A new one for us and Jax is loving these. Reminds me of a chocolate covered twinkie! - Twin Bar - like a Kit Kat, but it does have hazelnut as an ingredient, so you will get that Nutella kind of taste as well. (I seem to be comparing every item to a similar non-gluten free item) - Ciabatta - A staple in our house. We mostly use them as dinner rolls. In the days when we could go out to eat, I'd take them with us so Jax could have bread & butter with the rest of us. They recommend baking them before eating them but Jax also eats them at room temperature if we don't have a toaster handy. He enjoys them with butter. I know a lot of people use these for sandwiches or for a burger roll. Can't say enough about these! - Deli Style Sourdough - also new for us. Probably the largest gluten free bread I have seen! We used it to make a delicious grilled cheese. The only thing that is kind of odd is that there are 5 slices. So you can make... 2 1/2 sandwiches?? I love that Schar makes a variety of products from bread to cookies. I haven't even scratched the surface here! There are crackers, pizza crusts, pasta &more! If you don't have a large selection locally, check out their site. Spend $30 to get free shipping & today some items are 50% off! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #nationalglutenfreeday #celiac #celiacdisease #celiackid #celiacmom #glutenfreelive #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreebread #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeeats #whatceliacseat #glutenfreecookies #glutenfreecandy #glutenfreedessert #glutenfreerolls #glutenfreesourdoughbread #nogluten #celiaclife #coeliac #singluten #celiacfood #glutenfreesnacks #glutenfreegrilledcheese

Yesterday was Lexi's 16th birthday (so hard to believe I have 16 year old!) and she has been telling me for months that if we are still in “quarantine” (i.e. she can’t have a big party) she wanted to order a cake from @milkbarstore for her birthday (no it's not gluten free). I knew Milk Bar had some gluten free options but I was not sure if they were Celiac safe, so Lexi and I started checking out their web site. I was surprised and pretty excited to see that the Gluten Free Fruity Marshmallow Cookies had a note that said "Our Gluten-Free Fruity Marshmallow Cookie is certified gluten-free by the Gluten Intolerance Group (@glutendotorg)." This meant that at least there was a safe option I could order for Jax. (It even has the new certified GF logo!) Milk Bar also offers a Gluten Free birthday cake and Gluten Free truffles which are NOT Celiac Safe and they are pretty clear about that on the website. I am not sure why they'd go to the trouble to certify one of the gluten free items and not the others. But maybe one day soon? Wishful thinking. Hint hint @milkbarstore Jax enjoyed the Fruity Marshmallow Cookies. They come in a cute reusable tin with 6 cookies. The cookies are huge and you can see full mini marshmallows in the cookies. They were right up his alley for a special treat. Anyway, Lexi enjoyed her birthday and her cake and we were even able to pull off a little drive by surprise with a few of her friends on Sunday! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreecookies #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreetreat #certifiedglutenfree #glutendotorg #glutenintolerancegroup #celiacsafe #celiac #celiacdisease #celiackid #coeliac #whatceliacseat #glutenfreelife #glutenfreeliving #milkbar #milkbarstore #milkbarcake #notyouraveragecookie #fruitymarshmallowcookie #glutenfreedessert #milkbarglutenfree #milkbarcookies #glutenfreefood #livingglutenfree

I can’t stop eating this guilt-free, irresistible snack! You have to crack open a bag of ParmCrisps crunchy goodness. Not only is it gluten free but it’s keto-friendly, sugar-free and vegetarian, so everyone can enjoy these cheesy crisps. We picked up a bag of the Sour Cream & Onion Flavor - so good to eat on their own or with dip! They come in a bunch of other flavors like Sea Salt, Cheddar, Jalapeno and Pizza! Trust me, a snack this good will guarantee that you’ll stick to your New Year Resolutions. Follow @ParmCrisps on Instagram and experience these ParmCrisps in all of their glory! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreesnacks #parmcrisps #lowcarbdiet #healthyeating #zerocarbs #keto #ketosnacks #ketofriendly #lowcaloriesnack #glutenfreesnack #snack #cheesesnack #Summersnacking #snackmix #premium #protein #newyear #newyearsresolution #newyearnewyou

This is Jax’s latest breakfast invention. He calls it a “pengwich” but personally I wanted to call it a “panwich.” Or maybe even a “peggwich.” Here is a little background. Jax loves to eat @traderjoes @traderjoesglutenfree frozen pancakes for breakfast on school days which are a quick and easy breakfast we can make in the microwave (they are also dairy free by the way). Sometimes on the side he has egg whites and and since there are sunny side up eggs, Jax decided there should also be something called cloudy eggs. So we invented them. See the last picture for cloudy eggs - basically I cook the egg whites until they’re firm enough flip in the pan, and they come out in a big circle. So back to the pengwich. We layer pieces of the cloudy eggs between the pancakes - but here’s the key - you have to also add syrup in each layer. It makes for a very messy sandwich that once you pick up you can’t put down or it will fall apart but this is Jax’s new breakfast of choice! Have you tried Trader Joe’s gluten free pancakes? Do you have any interesting breakfast combos? #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreepancakes #glutenfreebreakfast #dairyfree #dairyfreepancakes #glutenfreedairyfree #traderjoesglutenfree #glutenfreelife #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeliving #celiacdisease #celiac #celiackids #coeliac #momwin #breakfastideas #breakfastsandwich #breakfastsammie #pancakesandeggs #pancakesandeggwhites #pancakeandeggsandwich #crazybreakfast #crazybreakfastideas #crazycombo #cloudyeggs #traderjoesfinds #traderjoeslist
