Happy Celiac Awareness Month! [& Giveaway!]

This is an important month for Celiacs. I've not been diagnosed with Celiac Disease, but what has perked my interest is how celiacs cannot have gluten in their diets. Since going gluten-free, many times you hear a lot of information about being gluten-free alongside being diagnosed with Celiac.

I partnered up with Glutino this month to boast about their amazing options for celiacs (or those of you who have a gluten allergy or are gluten sensitive).

Before I get into my experience with Glutino, I have a few sites I can highly recommend to read more about Celiac disease -

1. CureCeliacDisease.org

They have a very interesting frequently asked questions area where you can find out more about Celiac disease, whether or not a gluten sensitivity exists, and so much more. Pus they have an awesome guide on learning how to live with Celiac Disease as well.

2. CeliacCentral.org

Here is also where you can find out more about Celiac disease, symptoms, and there's also information about events coming, giveaways. It's a fantastic way to get educated and find support if you have Celiac disease.

3. Celiac.org

Another way to get educated about Celiac disease. They also have an interesting section on getting involved and supporting the cause. They even have gluten-free recipes and a certified gluten free marketplace where you can shop gluten-free, worry-free.

I hope this helps you to get support and find education about Celiac Disease. It's often clumped in with us gluten-free-ks (hehe) and being diagnosed with Celiac Disease is a very serious thing. I also highly recommend visiting this blog I found recently called 'The Gluten Dude' because he posts really interesting stuff about his journey with Celiac disease, gluten-free foods, and he's also really funny too.

Now onto my experience with Glutino! Check out the lot of stuff I received:



Glutino has such amazing products to try and I couldn't believe what I had the chance to try and I each and every one of them.

I also tried out their baking mixes for the first time. These are so fun to me. Sometimes on Saturday I like to make one of these, especially since I like the vibe of having something homemade without the effort. Of all the mixes I tried, the chocolate cake mix (which actually was more like chocolate muffins because I split it up into muffin tins (or is it cupcakes?). This was unbelievable. It was so rich. I didn't bother making any separate icing, just had the mix, and it was still incredible.


My second favorite of the bunch were the gluten-free lemon wafers (which as you can see from above this was paired with raspberries and frozen yogurt). This is an awesome summer treat and a wonderful tasty goodie to have out in the sun!

Lastly, I really REALLY liked their English muffins. This is one of the first gluten-free English Muffins I have tried and I really enjoyed it. It's hearty and flavorful (I highly recommend the multi-grain).

Happy Celiac Awareness Month everyone! I hope you get the chance to read about Celiac Disease and get more awareness about what it is exactly.

  11. I've been wanting to try their strawberry toaster pastries for ages, don't know why I haven't just picked some up yet! I wish their chocolate vanilla creme cookies didn't have milk in them. (I can't have milk or gluten!) :(

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!
