Favorite Creamy & Crunchy Blueberry Breakfast

June 5th, 2010 at 7:31 am by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie
I used to love Grape Nuts and yogurt for breakfast.
Didn't you?
Well my friends, I have found that wonderfully creamy
and crunchy Gluten Free and dairy free combo again!

and


Wow! I think it is a better combo than what I remember and longed for ... little crunchy round pieces that keep their crunch until the very last bite. They have a very similar flavor to grape nuts, but no nuts. Perky's Crunchy Flax is made with sorghum, ground flax seed and sweetened with fruit juice and honey! I have tried it with various non-dairy alternatives like coconut milk, hemp milk and chocolate hazelnut milk - all very good ... but the combo with the yogurt is the perfect blend of creamy and crunchy!


So Delicious Yogurt is available in a variety of flavors including blueberry, my favorite, raspberry, vanilla and more. Look at the website for more info Turtle Mountain So Delicious.

Look for both products at your favorite Gluten Free Market or grocery store.

Light, fast and easy ... now I am ready for this sunny day but just had to quickly share this with you!

Enjoy!

Gluten Free Drinks – O.N.E. Coconut Water

October 6th, 2009 at 10:24 am by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie
I think we forget about our Gluten Free beverage options sometimes because we are so focused on food, at least I am . Gone are the days of soda or outrageously enormous lattes with milk for me. I am proud to say that I am a tea and water person. BORING! We need variety in everything we do so why not our beverage options. The problem is that most of the beverages out there are loaded with sugar or high fructose corn syrup, which is not healthy for anyone. So lately I have been looking for something else to quench my thirst. I have talked about my love of Unsweetened Coconut Milk called So Delicious by Turtle Mountain, in the past and I think I have found something equally refreshing since the Coconut Milk is only sold in large cartons. I happened to find it on my recent journey to Port Townsend’s Food Coop on another hunt for Almond Flour, Arrowroot and Agar Flakes.
As I write this I am laughing at myself because I really love going to a grocery store that I don’t go to all the time to just scan the aisles for new treats, it might be classified as a sport or hobby, maybe an Olympic event soon, you never know…. just kidding. The time that I put into it usually pays off.
I found it! O.N.E. 100% Coconut Water. The packaging says Natural Sports Drink, Made in Brazil and an award symbol for America’s Healthiest Fitness winner of 2008 and GLUTEN FREE. I love it when I see that on a label because it shows that companies are thinkg about us! The label on the back is most impressive. There is a comparison between “another sports drink” vs O.N.E. -Potassium 40 vs 670 for O.N.E and only 60 calories. It is loaded with other vitamins and nutrients. The individual size is perfect 11.2 oz and comes with a cute little expandable straw. The best thing is the taste. I have to say that since I have been reducing the amount of sugar I consume and switching to Agave and more Honey my palate is really changing. I like the taste of the Coconut Water. If you are not as used to a more natural lightly sweet taste it might take a few sips to get used to but the health benefits are great! Check it out!
A side note, the past few days I have been having horrible leg cramps. They get really bad at night. I know this is a somewhat common thing because I have been chatting with other Celiacs and they say they get them too. They don’t happen all the time and not sure what really triggers them but for me they come with my chronic pain flares. There are various therories as to why this happens in Celiacs. Maybe it is an imbalance in nutrition, vitamins, minerals or dehydration. All I know is that soon after I drank O.N.E. Coconut Water my legs felt much better. The only bummer is that I bought one individual carton just to try. I wish I had bought more.  
Enjoy!
