Win-It-Wednesday: Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery Prize Pack

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

The air is chilly and snow is still (unfortunately!) in the forecast, but summer, I promise you, is right around the corner.

And with summertime comes the memories of childhood… beach outings, barbeques, fireworks and overnight summer camp. But for those with celiac disease or a gluten-intolerance, summer camp can be challenging… and scary.

For some kids an overnight summer camp can be an apprehensive situation in itself. Throw into that mix a strict gluten-free diet, and the thought of being away from home for a whole week can be terrifying.

But there is no reason that a gluten-free diet should get in the way of kid’s having a great time at summer camp… and that is why I was so excited when I found out that Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery was offering scholarships to 20 kids (10 from the US and 10 from Canada) for a one-week gluten-free overnight summer camp trip!

The “Happy Camper” scholarship program is taking place from February 18th to March 18, 2014. It is easy to enter to win too. Just check out the application on Rudi’s Gluten-free Facebook page and have your kid(s) (or you) submit a 100-word essay on “what makes them special” (this should be pretty easy, right?) for a chance to win a one-week scholarship to attend a gluten-free overnight camp. Rudi’s will then select the winner’s that will have an unforgetable fun-filled and safe camp experience.

And as another bonus, Rudi’s Gluten-Free has generous offered to sponsor this week’s WIN-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com!

Two (2) lucky winners will each win a prize pack of THREE (yes, 3!) FREE product coupons for Rudi’s Gluten-Free items. One (1) winner will be randomly selected from the entries received before Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 11:59 PM EST, and one (1) more winner will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, March 5 and Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 11:59PM EST. SO – make sure you enter to win two times!

How can you win?
Easy!

Reply to this blog and tell us (in a sentence or two) why your kids, grandkids, nieces/nephews, etc. are special. (Me? Their caring and upbeat attitudes always put me in a great mood!)

(Please note: If you leave a comment on this blog post you are only entering to win the Rudi’s prize pack. To enter the camp scholarship contest you must enter on Rudi’s Facebook page!)

Good luck, always be a Happy Camper… and as always,
Be Free!

Win-It-Wednesday: Cybele’s Free-To-Eat Cookies – Free of Gluten and the TOP 8 Allergens!

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and my thoughts keep wandering to sweet treats. Treats that can be enjoyed on a cold winter’s day with a cup of hot tea or cocoa… and yes, treats that can be enjoyed without a worry in the world.

And thanks to Cybele’s Free-To-Eat Cookies everyone on a gluten-free diet or those that are concerned with the top 8 allergens – Dairy, Eggs, Wheat, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish and Shellfish – can enjoy a soft and sweet treat this Valentine’s Day… or any day… worry free.

These cookies are made by a mom of a food allergic family, Cybele Pascal (on a side note… Cybele is a remarkable woman! Make sure you check out Cybele’s blog for some delicious recipes and her “Allergen-Free Bakers Handbook” cookbook for some great allergen-free baking tips and recipes!) The cookies are also vegan – and come in three flavors: Chocolate Chunk Brownie, Chocolate Chip, and my favorite, Oatmeal Raisin. Cybele’s Cookies are also baked in a dedicated gluten-free and allergy-friendly facility.

O.K. – I know by now many of you are also thinking that these cookies must be free of flavor too. But, a-ha, you are wrong my friends. These cookies are soft (like, really, really soft… which I love), moist, full of raisins, chocolate chips & chunks and all the other fixins’. So they are a perfect worry-free, tasty treat for those on a gluten-free diet, celiac disease, or with food allergies. But beware! The non-gluten-free and non-food-allergic peeps in your household will be gobbling them up too… they are just that good.

For being able to enjoy a super tasty cookie that is worry free when it comes to gluten and allergens, is the reason why I am so very excited to have Cybele’s Free-To-Eat Cookies sponsor this Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com.

Win-It-Wednesday: Soothie Suckers Herbal Remedies

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

It’s that time of year again. Yup… the time of the dreaded sniffles, coughs, chills, runny noses, sore throats and more.  But this year is different because I have decided to tackle the colds that usually run rampant through my household before the first sniffle ever starts.

Welcome… Soothie Suckers!

Soothie Suckers are a great tasting, pre­measured herbal remedies that helps you fight the cold season. They are designed for children, but are perfect for anyone from the age of 2 to 92. Because the formulas are blended especially with children in mind, they use gentle herbs rather than harsh chemicals, over the counter drugs or antibiotics. Soothie Suckers come in two formulas. One helps support the immune system and the other the upper respiratory system, which means they assist in preventing colds… not just relieving the symptoms.

Made by a Mom (Marietta) for her young daughter (Esther), Soothie Suckers are made with the love, caring and understanding that only the best, all-natural ingredients are the way to go when it comes to helping your kids stay, and get, healthy. Soothie Suckers can now be found at select retailers and on-line at Amazon.com and Drugstore.com. (I love it when a woman-owned Mom business thrives!).  Also, make sure that you check out Marietta’s Facebook and Twitter accounts for Soothie Suckers!

Soothie Suckers are also free from allergens… including gluten, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs, fish and shellfish.

Another thing to love is that these proprietary, all-natural herbal formulas are packaged in kid-friendly ice pop pouches (how fun!) and come in two natural flavors, grape and orange (my favorite!). And take your pick… these pouches can be served frozen, or at room temperature… whatever your fancy.

And remember… although Soothie Suckers are made with kid’s in mind, they are perfect for adults too. =)

All these reasons are why I am so excited that Soothie Suckers is the sponsor of this Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com.

Four (yes, 4!) winners will each receive a prize pack of Soothie Suckers. Two (2) of the winners will be randomly selected from all comments / entries received before Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 11:59 PM (EST), and two (2) more winners will be selected from all comments / entries received between Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at 12:00 AM (EST) and Tuesday, January 28, 2014 at 11:59 PM (EST).

How Can You Win?

Easy!

Reply to this blog and tell us which Soothie Sucker looks the best to you (immune support or upper respiratory support). Also please feel free to share how you make yourself or your family “feel good” when you do get a cold or sniffles (Me? Bundled up in soft, warm blankets with hot tea & honey).

Good luck, keep well and cold free, and, as always…

Win-It-Wednesday: “Extraordinary Vegan” and “The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Cakes & Cookies” Cookbooks

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Just in time for the holidays, our Win-It-Wednesday is all about good cooking and good baking! This week sponsor is Book Publishing Company, the publishing company for these two incredibly awesome gluten-free and vegan cookbooks that are being featured.

These Win-It-Wednesday’s prizes will get your creative juices flowing in the kitchen. The first cookbook is “Extraordinary Vegan” by Alan Roettinger. With 30 years of cooking experience, Alan shares tons of his culinary wisdom so we all can cook, and eat, deliciously healthy!

There are over 100 recipes using plant-based foods that will open your eyes (and your taste-buds!) to a whole new world of vegan living. His cooking style and tantalizing recipes will make you want to take chances in the kitchen that you have never taken before. All the recipes in this cookbook are also gluten-free. Some of my favorite recipes include the Roasted Cauliflower and Beet Salad, Spicy Minted Slaw, and the Pears in Pomegranate Juice.

This cookbook is perfect for those planning on making the upcoming resolution of eating and living a healthier lifestyle in the New Year.

The next cookbook prize is “The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Cakes & Cookies” by Laurie Sadowski. If you’re looking for some awesome recipes for gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and soy-free cakes & cookies you have to check out Laurie Sadowski’s newest cookbook “The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Cakes & Cookies”.

Laurie Sadowski, a food enthusiast with celiac disease (who is also a vegan) wrote this cookbook to share with us her sweet side of baking. Her newest cookbook is a collection of to-die-for cakes, cookies, bars and squares – all of which are perfect for those with celiac disease / a gluten-free lifestyle, dairy allergies, egg allergies, and also a vegan-life style, ADHD and autism.

Just looking at these recipes make me want to dig out my baking pans and rolling pin. They range from the decadent (Triple-Chocolate Layer Cake or Two-Bite Chocolate-Covered Cherry Cupcakes, anyone?), to the traditional (comfort foods like New Old-Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake or Autumn Apple Cake with Cider Sauce), to the dinner-party daring desserts  (Molten Lava Mini Cakes with Raspberry Sauce or Hazelnut Biscotti, to name just a couple).

I really like this cookbook because there are also a lot of tips and tricks to make gluten-free baking a success… something we all can use every so often. =)

Win-It-Wednesday: Pacific Foods… Products & Recipes to Make “The Day After” Leftovers Fabulous!

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

I love Thanksgiving. The turkey, the mashed potatoes, sweet butternut squash, gluten-free stuffing, cranberry sauce and more. But I must admit…  as I am enjoying my feast, I am already secretly concocting and contriving the “Feast of the Day After”… as I like it to be called.

Yes. I know. Some people refer to this meal the day after as “leftovers”  - a word with such a negative vibe. But not to me… Instead the stacked containers in my fridge full of my cleverly planned extra foods are full of promise and potential.

Move over Black Friday… this day should be called the “Feast of the Day After”!

But sometimes my mind goes blank on recipes ideas. That’s why I was more than thrilled when I discovered all the fab-u-lious “Feast of the Day After” recipes that are being featured on the Pacific Foods website. I love that the recipes can be sorted by allergen or special dietary requirements (there are tons of gluten-free recipes). Some of them include Asparagus Risotto (made with Organic Chicken Broth), Rustic Creamy Mushroom and Vegetable Soup (made with Organic Vegetable Broth), Pumpkin Spice Soup (made with Organic Free range Chicken Broth) and Parmesan Delicata Squash Soup (made with Chicken Simply Stock).

And if you think that Pacific Foods is just about broths, stocks and soups, you need to check out their website and see all themagnificent gluten-free products that Pacific Foods offers! Some of my favorites for Thanksgiving, and the “Feast of the Day After” include, Cranberry Sauce,  Mushroom Gravy and Organic Pumpkin Puree. And did you know that Pacific Foods has a gluten-free condensed Cream of Chicken Soup?? Yup… Perfect for casseroles and more!

I also love that Pacific Food’s products contain no preservatives, and the ingredients are things that you can pronounce, and are all natural or organic. Some good stuff.  Their Tetra packaging also makes the products shelf staple – so no refrigeration is needed (until opened, of course).  In a nutshell? Pacfic Foods is just natural and simple goodness.

All of these simply good reasons are why I am so excited that Pacific Natural Foods is the sponsor of this Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com.

Two winners will each receive a prize pack containing a variety of Pacific Natural Foods . One (1) of the winners will be randomlyselected from all comments / entries received before Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 11:59 PM (EST), and one(1) more winners will be selected from all comments / entries received between Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at 12:00 AM (EST) and Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 11:59 PM (EST).

How Can You Win?

Easy!

Reply to this blog and tell us which of the Pacific Natural Food Product looks the best to you – and make sure to sort by the allergen(s) that you are concerned with! (Me? The Rosemary Potato Chowder knocks this New England gal’s socks off… and I love my chowda! And second runner-up is the condensed Cream of Chicken Soup… perfect for casseroles!)

Good luck, be thankful, love those leftovers, and …. as always….

Be Free!

All of these delicious and chocolaty reasons are why I am so excited that Enjoy Life Foods is the sponsor of this Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com!

Win-It-Wednesday: Club House Gluten-Free Gravy Mixes & Baking Products

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Good Gravy! It’s tough being gluten-free for the holidays. All the baking, the roasts, the turkeys, the fixings… it can leave a gluten-free gal like me wondering when holiday cooking and baking will get easier and more convenient.

Well wonder no more. Thankfully, Club House has recently come out with some gluten-free products to make our holidays… and our lives a heck of a lot easier. Thank you, Club House!

The gluten-free products that Club House has recently come out with are the Brown Gravy, the Turkey Gravy, Rice Flour, Potato Starch and Minute Tapioca. It’s also important to note that Club House, which is McCormick Canada – the largest spice, dry sauce, seasoning extract and specialty food operation in Canada – has become one of the growing number of companies that has become certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) with the introduction of this line of gluten-free products (which will be available at grocery stores across North America).

I love the new gravy mixes. Why? They taste great, and they help me make my holidays meal prep a lot more simple. Gluten-free folks everywhere can now enjoy gravy on their Thanksgiving turkey or holiday roasts without all the fuss, mixing, whisking and lumps. These gravies also contain no artificial colors and flavors, and have 25% less sodium than the Club House original gravies.

The flours are awesome too. Want to try some chewy and fudgy Gluten-Free Brownies? Then grab a bag of Club House Potato Starch and get baking. How about making some Classic Gluten-Free Shortbread Cookies and packaging them up in a gift basket with an assortment of teas for a thoughtful, yet thrifty, gluten-free gift idea; or for a quick and easy dessert for a weekday (because desserts should not be reserved for special occasions only!) try making some Gluten-Free Tapioca Pudding with Club House’s Minute Tapioca.

The convenience of the Club House gluten free gravy mixes and the ease in baking-up gluten-free classic desserts are why I am so excited and thankful that this Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com is sponsored by Club House.

A total of FOUR (Yes… 4!) BeFreeForMe members will be selected to win a prize pack containing the Club House Gluten-Free Gravy Mixes (both the brown gravy and the gravy for Turkey), Minute Tapioca, Potato Starch and the Rice Flour. This prize pack is bursting at the gluten-free seams with holiday goodness! Two (2) winners will be randomly selected from the entries received before Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 11:59 PM EST; Two (2) more winners will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, November 6 and Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 11:59. SO make sure that you enter to win two times!

How can you win?
Easy!

Reply to this blog and tell us one thing (even the simpliest thing) that you are thankful for. (Me? I am thankful for the happy, cheery and smiling gal that serves me every day at my local coffee shop. Through thick, or thin, her smile is always there!)

Good luck, be mindful of and thankful for those little things… and as always…

WIN-It-Wednesday: Erewhon’s SuperGrain Quinoa & Chia Cereal

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

This week’s sponsor for the Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com is a new nutritious gluten-free cereal that has made its way into a Whole Food’s Market near you… Erewhon’s Quinoa & Chia Cereal.

Erewhon’s Quinoa & Chia cereal is packed with crispy flakes of organic quinoa and organic brown rice, and then it’s tossed with omega-rich chia seeds and baked to perfection. The result? A crunchy, super-nutritious cereal that is packed with 5 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein.

I love that this not-to-sweet, organic cereal is made with only 5 ingredients (organic quinoa, organic brown rice, chia seeds, organic brown rice syrup and salt) and is not only gluten-free, but also free of nuts, dairy and eggs.

Erewhon, which was founded in 1966, has been making gluten-free cereal for years. Their philosophy is “Simple Ingredients. Simply Made” and their SuperGrain cereal line-up (including this new Quinoa & Chia cereal and also the Buckwheat & Hemp cereal) is a perfect example of that philosophy.

I also like that this cereal is non-GMO project verified, something that is important to me, and has been in the spotlight recently. All of the Erewhon’s gluten-free cereals are also certified by GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group).

In other words, you feel healthy and happy about eating this cereal. And what a better way to start off your day?

All these simple, healthy and tasty reasons are why I am so happy to have Erewhon Quinoa & Chia cereal sponsor the next two week’s WIN-It-Wednesdays on BeFreeForMe.com.

How can you win?
Easy!

Reply to this blog and tell us a simple thing in life that makes you happy. Me? Taking a walk on a crisp New England morning… kicking & rustling the fallen leaves up with my feet … while enjoying the scents and colors that make this time of year so refreshingly perfect!   =)

A total of FOUR (Yes… 4!) BeFreeForMe members will be selected to win a prize pack containing two boxes of the Erewhon’s SuperGrain Cereals (one box of the Buckwheat & Hemp cereal and another of the Quinoa & Chia cereal).
