About Gluten Free Oats, How To Make Quick Cooking Gluten Free Oats, and How to Cook Oats Fast For Breakfast

While oats are technically gluten free, they are often not gluten free due to farming practices and processing. Therefore, for anyone wishing to avoid gluten, (especially those with Celiac disease), it is imperative to buy “certified gluten free oats.”  This means they were grown on fields dedicated to oats only and not on a rotation with wheat or barely and processed in a gluten free facility. I used to buy Bob’s Red Mill certified gluten free oats in bulk and kept the extras in the freezer.  However, about 2 years ago, Trader Joe’s started selling gluten free oats and they … Continue reading

Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola

Making your own food is part of the gluten free, dairy free, (or allergy free) lifestyle. It just comes with territory and everyone is better off because of it. Homemade is always better! This is so true when it comes to granola; you can control the amount of oil and sugar used. So, in the spirit of autumn and all things pumpkin, I created a Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola recipe for Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT). (I was not compensated). You can find the recipe by clicking here. And if you love granola as much as I do, … Continue reading

Blueberry Banana Smoothie

If you are a fan of food blogs, I’m sure you heard mention of high-speed or high-powered blenders such as Vitamix, Ninja, or Blendtec by now. I’ve finally joined the ranks and I am not looking back! Never will I go back to a standard blender again! My high-speed/powered blender can obliterate anything! In mere seconds. Take this blueberry smoothie for instance. (Yes, the picture isn’t great….I had to take a picture of leftovers and before it got gobbled up). In a regular blender, blueberries do not get completely pureed and you are left with chunks of blueberry stuck in … Continue reading

Fall Fruit Sauce

I made Savory Squash Soup yesterday and it was delish. If you have not tried it yet, by all means….go, print out the recipe. You will love the soup even if you are not a big squash person. And as always, when I cooked the squash for the soup I had leftovers. I actually plan it that way. I buy a bigger squash so that I will have leftover squash. I was going to make Not Your Mama’s Chocolate Shake, but I didn’t have ripe bananas. Don’t you hate it when you want to make something, only to find out … Continue reading

Pumpkin Chai Spice Breakfast Bars

I saw the stats. The Grab and Go Breakfast Bars were a HUGE hit! I had mentioned I was working on a new flavor. Today, it’s yours…. Pumpkin Chai Breakfast Bars. Great autumn breakfast, although I would eat these any time of year. But now would be the time to stock up on canned pumpkin as it is always cheaper in the fall. These are not overly pumpkin for those of you who prefer a mild taste. The chai spices are not heavy either. You may want to check out the Grab and Go Breakfast Bars post for all the … Continue reading

Grab and Go Breakfast Bars – High Fiber and High Protein

We’ve had some early mornings around here; as in getting out the door by 6 o’clock A.M! So rather than eating nothing or eating poorly, I decided we needed a good protein breakfast bar. It had to: Be able to be made ahead of time. Freeze and thaw well. Taste well, but be low in sugar. Travel well, as in not be crumbly or fall apart all over the place. I also wanted something that would fill us up. Two things are needed for that: protein and fiber. This breakfast bar has both. Let’s look at a few of the … Continue reading

“PB&J” Protein Shake

Breakfasts can be tricky if you are on a “limited diet.” I put limited in quotes because I personally do not feel limited at all even though there are several food groups I do not eat. For a lot of us, mornings are rushed and there is limited time to make gluten free, allergy friendly breakfasts. That is where a good protein shake comes in. I know some whole food/real food bloggers do not like protein powder, but I find my mornings to go much smoother when I can quickly whip up a shake. Plus when I drink one, I … Continue reading
