When it comes to being gluten-free, dining out is still the hardest thing to do. Ask anyone who has been gluten-free for years and I guarantee they will say the same thing. That overwhelming anxiety of trying a new restaurant. The uneasy feeling of dining out no matter how safe the restaurant seems. It’s stressful to dine out but we can’t stay indoors forever. We have friends we want to hang out with, family we want to accompany. It’s important to get out and remain social but being gluten-free can make it hard to enjoy it at all. It may take years for the restaurants to get better at it but here are a few key phrases that you can say during your order to make your experience safer with a little help from Nima Sensor!

Have you ever been in a situation where you were too busy to make a meal? Have you been out and about, in between meetings, classes, or some sort of time contingent situation where fast food is the only option? Perhaps you have a child who plays sports and it's hard for them to have food before practice or after school activities. There are so many situations like this where finding food should be easy, but for those of us who are gluten-free, it's not that simple. We can't just grab fast food when on the road. We can't just quickly make a meal in between breaks. Cross contamination is too risky and let's be honest, our food takes much longer to prepare anyways.

For those of us who are gluten-free, most situations on-the-go or away from home just aren't that easy. I've spent the last few years in situations where grabbing a quick fix of food wasn't an option. As much as I travel, I've had to learn how to be prepared for any gluten-free situation. That's why I'm here to share some tips based on what I've learned over the years with a little help from my friends at Enjoy Life Foods!

These gluten-free ice cream lists have by far been the most popular thing I've compiled for the summer time. When you first go gluten-free, you don't really think about gluten being in things like ice cream. (Unless there are cookies in it of course) I've already made a gluten-free ice cream list for Edy's and Haagen Dazs which have been very popular. That's why I decided to update this gluten-free ice cream list for another popular brand of ice cream, Breyers.

Finding gluten free ice cream flavors is generally something you shouldn't have to worry about. With that being said, you can never be to careful. Since my last Edy's Gluten Free Ice-Cream List did so well I decided to update this gluten free ice-cream list for Haagen Dazs. Below is a complete list of their ice creams labeled gluten free. Also know that none of their ice-creams are dairy free but if you are looking for a dairy and gluten-free ice cream, So Delicious is perfect for you.

Ice cream is generally gluten free and safe for those who have allergies or an intolerance to gluten.  Flavors of ice cream that have cookies, pretzels, brownies, cone pieces, graham crackers, cookie dough, etc. all are not safe to eat and contain gluten unless otherwise stated and specifically made to be gluten free.  Other items in the ingredients that may add gluten are coloring and fillers.  Edy's Ice Cream is one of the few ice cream manufacturers that has many gluten-free options. Keep in mind that these ice creams are not labeled gluten-free but this list below includes ice creams with no gluten containing ingredients. 

It's pretty well known that many gluten-free products are not so healthy for you. Many products are full of sugars, fats, and carbs that make you wonder, "is it possible to go back-to-school gluten-free AND healthy?" You may think that packing a gluten-free lunch is already hard enough but packing a healthy and gluten-free lunch is still very possible! I was a gluten-free kid not too long ago and had to prepare for gluten-free school activities all too often. With the help of myself and Enjoy Life Foods, we can show you some back-to-school gluten-free snack ideas that are healthy too!

We have another fun Enjoy Life Foods Twitter Party this month themed for being back-to-school gluten-free and after school activities! RSVP for the event on 8/17/17 at 9 PM EST / 6 PM PST! We'll be discussing how to pack the perfect gluten-free lunch, how to help your child cope with food allergies during the school year, and much more with the help of Enjoy Life Foods. As always, we'll have giveaways for the NEW Enjoy Life Foods Chewy Bars as well! It's 100% free to attend all from home!

The day is finally here! For those of you who have been following my blog over the years, you may know that I've been living with my parents the whole time I've been blogging. After all, I am only 20 years old. I've had a far from normal teenage life since I spent most of my time home schooled and in & out of the hospital. Not to mention, trying to grow a business (GlutenAway) with just my mom and myself has definitely taken a lot of my time. Overall, I've been so incredibly grateful for the memories I've made and the experience I've gotten over the years. But you could imagine that I'm more than ready to live on my own and finally be my own age too. This month, I'll be moving back to Columbus, Ohio to live with a couple of roommates who are not gluten-free. What to expect from this new experience and journey? I don't know! But you can bet that I'll be blogging and sharing all about it the whole way 😊
