We had so much fun making these @littlegfkits mini apple pies - just like we do with all their baking kits. The crust was super easy to make and roll out - and the kit came with a round cutter for the mini pie crusts (which you make in muffin tins) and 2 fun fall shaped stampers for the tops of the pies. We planned to make these for Thanksgiving dessert but couldn’t wait and ate them when they were fresh out of the oven! While it’s too late to order this kit in time for Thanksgiving, it is still available, and don’t forget to order a Gingerbread House kit before they sell out (we made that this weekend too and I’ll be posting our finished houses soon!). Little GF Chefs is having lots of great Black Friday deals so check them out, and you can always use my code GFFINDS for 10% off any baking kit! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #forkyeahfoodies #applepie #glutenfreeapplepie #minipie #thanksgiving #thanksgivingdesssert #dessert #glutenfreedessert #bakingkit #subscriptionbox #nutfree #eggfree #dairyfree #allergyfriendly #celiac #celiacsafe #celiacdisease #celiaclife #celiackids #glutenfreelife #celiacliving #littlegfchefs #kidsbaking

@drbronner is a company that's known for soap and body products, and all of their products and packaging are earth friendly.

The flavors are: - Salted Whole Almonds - Salted Almond Butter - Roasted Whole Hazelnuts - Crunchy Hazelnut Butter - Salted Dark Chocolate - Smooth Coconut Praline Dr. Bronner’s chocolate uses West African cocoa grown using regenerative organic agriculture, Indonesian coconut sugar, Congolese cocoa butter, and Madagascan vanilla beans.

About last week... You probably saw our food posts and stories from Washington, DC last week. Jax (and his parents) were there on some very important business! As a follow up to Jax meeting @POTUS and asking for President Biden's help to protect 3.3 million American Celiacs by labeling Gluten as a Major Food Allergen, Jax was invited to the @WhiteHouse We had meetings with the White House Domestic Policy Council last Thursday. On Wednesday, we headed to Capitol Hill and met with representatives from the offices of @senatorchriscoons @senbobcasey and @reprosadelauro to discuss our goal of labeling Gluten on all packaged goods in the U.S. like it is in 85 other countries! Labeling Gluten as a Major Food Allergen is also in alignment with the 2021 FAO/WHO Expert Consultation. We are so proud of Jax for sharing his lived experience with Celiac and how hard it is reading food packages in the absence of Gluten being required to be labeled in the U.S. as an ingredient. Jax also shared how much easier and safer it is in Italy to read food labels since Gluten is required to be labeled. #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #celiacjourney #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #glutenfreelife #foodallergen #foodallergies #potus #whitehouse #labelgluten #gluten #fda #publichealth #whconfhungerhealth #healthequity #foodlabels #celiacadvocacy #celiacawareness #glutenfreediet #kidsonthehill #FAO #WHO #humanrights #FDA #HHS #equity #advancingequity #executiveorder13985

Eating dinner at @ilcanale in Georgetown I almost thought we were back in Italy. First of all they have a separate oven to cook the gluten-free pizzas, and second of all the pieces are so large you have to fold them or eat it with a knife and fork like you do in Italy. But seriously the Neapolitan style pizza here was delicious I highly recommend it. They also have a variety of gluten-free pastas. The weather was warm and we sat outside but the atmosphere inside was adorable as well. If you find yourself in Washington, definitely check this out for a great gluten-free option! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #forkyeahfoodies #glutenfreedc #glutenfreefood #glutenfreefoodie #glutenfreetravel #celiacdisease #celiactravel #celiaclife #celiacsafe #celiacliving #celiac #glutenfreelife #glutenfreepizza #glutenfreepasta #pizza #neopolitanpizza #georgetowndc #washingtondc

We first discovered @tattebakery in Boston last summer and were happy to find one a block from our hotel when we arrived in DC today and needed a quick lunch. Although they call their menu gluten friendly they will mark your order as an allergy and take extra precautions. They make the gluten free sandwiches separately. Jax opted for an egg & cheese breakfast sandwich (which they make all day). He thoroughly enjoyed it and devoured it! The only thing I wish is that they kept the gf baked goods in a separate case instead of mixed in with the gluten items! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreefood #glutenfreetravel #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #celiactravel #glutenfreelife #glutenfreedc #glutenfreesandwich #breakfast #breakfastsandwich #tattebakery #forkyeahfoodies #celiacliving #whatceliacseat

Just wanted to share Jax's gluten free meals from our travel to/from Italy on @americanair We had not traveled internationally since Jax's Celiac diagnosis so I did not know what to expect and I am used to traveling with his meals. Also I could not request a GF kids meal, so I still brought food from home for him on the outbound flight since I had no idea what to expect. On the return flight I was also luckily able to find safe food for him in the Venice airport which I will post about separately, so Jax did eat before the flight just in case. The meals were pretty similar on both flights. On the flight to Italy (Philadelphia to Rome) he got grilled chicken, asparagus and mashed potatoes with an @omg.itsglutenfree dinner roll (wrapped). I don't think he got the breakfast because he was sleeping. I had brought some cereal and a Trader Joe's muffin from home. On the way back (Venice to Philadelphia) he got rice cakes, salad, fruit salad and grilled chicken with rice & veggies for lunch. Then there was a vanilla ice cream (individual cup) served that was a brand from the UK (forgot to take a pic) that I felt safe letting him eat, since gluten was not named as an allergen (and is required to be in the UK). I was happy that both flights provided safe, wrapped, marked GF meals but still not sure I'd ever feel confident leaving home without a backup meal just in case! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreefood #forkyeahfoodies #airplanefood #glutenfreemeal #glutenfreetravel #celiactravel #celiac #celiaclife #glutenfreelife #celiacdisease #grilledchicken #ricecakes #glutenfreebread #airplanemeal

These @goodiegirlcookies Mini Brown Sugar cookies are delicious on their own, but we decided to make something even more delicious with them! We decided to make a gluten free version of Mallomars. These cookies are the perfect size to top with a marshmallow (cut in half) and cover with melted chocolate! That’s all you need. 3 ingredients! Mmmm so delicious and the perfect bite size sweet treat! I love that Goodie Girl is a gluten free brand we can trust and that they only use strictly purity protocol gluten free oats in their oat flour! These Goodie Girl Mini Brown Sugar cookies can be found at your local @wholefoods market! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #forkyeahfoodies #goodiegirl #cookies #glutenfreecookies #purityprotocoloats #kosher #peanutfree #certifiedglutenfree #celiacsafe #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #glutenfreelife #mallomars #desserttime #dessertideas #candymaking #easyrecipes #glutenfreerecipes #glutenfreedessert #nogluten

Have you ever tried a gluten free meal delivery service? Are you the only gluten free person in your house? Do you live alone? Or maybe just need a break from cooking? Then Epicured may be perfect for you! Now that we've had a chance to try some of the #gifted meals from @getepicured I wanted to share a few photos and some reviews. Epicured is a fully gluten free, low FODMAP meal delivery service. It was definitely nice to have a break from cooking some meals! The bundle that we received included meals for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Pictured here are: - Mediterranean Salad Chicken - delicious - the chicken was very moist, the dressing was delicious, I added some extra lettuce of my own. - Kale & Parmesan Frittata - a very hearty, healthy breakfast! - Arepas & Cheddar Egg Bites with Black Bean Salsa - my favorite part was the egg bites - a great protein packed breakfast! - Cheese Plate - a great afternoon snack that came with some cheese, crackers, grapes and jam! If you are interested in trying Epicured, you can use my code glut1EPI20 for $20 off your 1st order! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #forkyeahfoodies #glutenfreemeals #epicured #getepicured #epiclife #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #cleaneating #celiac #celiaclife #celiacdisease #glutenfreelife #glutenfreefood #unboxing #lowfodmap #mealdelivery #mealdeliveryservice

A tale of 2 Mac & Cheeses. It's great that @kraft_macandcheese offers a gluten free version. And it's even more exciting that they recently came out with gluten free mac & cheese cups that you can make in the microwave. These are super convenient, especially for traveling! But what's not convenient is the differential in price between the regular and gluten free versions! First, take the boxed version. A regular box is $1.29 ($.18 per ounce) and a gluten free box (which is actually smaller) is $4.79 ($.73 per ounce). Really? It just seems crazy! The cheese is the same. Can the gluten free pasta really cost that much more? The discrepancy with the cups is not as extreme, but 8 regular cups are $8.39 - $1.05 each or $.51 per ounce, while 4 gluten free cups are $6.49 - that's $1.62 each or $.79 per ounce. *Note these prices are from Target in Philadelphia 19131 This is but one of many examples of how much more gluten free food costs. You know the drill. A loaf of bread can cost 4 times more - and the slices are teeny tiny often with holes to boot! Gluten free pasta - almost double. Gluten free cookie dough - more than triple the price. Yes there may be some justification to gluten free ingredients with higher costs. But for a company like @kraft_brand @kraftheinzus it is hard to believe with their economies of scale and purchasing power, that they have to charge this much more for gluten free mac & cheese. #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #forkyeahfoodies #celiac #celiaclife #glutenfreelife #glutenfreefood #celiacdisease #macandcheese #kraftmacandcheese #gf #celiacfood #whatceliacseat #nogluten #glutenfreetravel #celiactravel #foodequity #foodinsecurity
