Friday Favorite: Terrapin Ridge Farms Dressings & Marinades

Thursday, July 17th, 2014
It’s summertime, and it seems that every day I have at least one salad as a main course meal. But sometimes vegetables tossed with ho-hum dressing  is just so boring. That’s why I was so excited and couldn’t wait to try the Terrapin Ridge Farms gluten-free salad dressings & marinades (with awesome flavors!) that I found in my local grocery store today.

The flavors of Terrapin Ridge Dressings are pure joy: Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette; Cilantro Lime Ranch Dressing; Creamy Italian White Balsamic Vinaigrette; Sweet Red Onion White Balsamic Dressing; Tangerine & Soy Gourmet Salad Dressing; and my favorite,  Toasted Sesame & Ginger Vinaigrette.

The dressings I listed are all gluten-free, and many are vegan, fat free and sweetened with agave. They are also perfect for marinades, dips and pasta salad mix-ins. I love that the ingredients are all items you can pronounce and these dressings do not contain any corn syrup. For all of these healthy and flavorful reasons this week’s Friday favorite is awarded to Terrapin Ridge Farms! Congratulations!

Friday Favorite: Naked Edge Snack’s Veggie Go’s

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

This week’s Friday Favorite is all about keeping things healthy… even when snacking.

Let’s face it – snacking gets a bum-rap since it is synonymous with high-fat, high-calorie, and high-guilt foods. But all of you healthy-snackers out there can now rejoice thanks to Naked Edge Snacks.

Gluten-free Naked Edge Snacks are like snacks of no other. Their Veggie-Go snacks are similar to tradition fruit strips or fruit leathers, but made from whole, organic fruits AND veggies. The fruit and veggies combos are unique and will have your taste buds happy. Some of the varieties are: Carrots, Apples & Ginger;  Beets, Apples, Sweet Potatoes, Flax Seed & Cinnamon; Sweet Potato Pie and my favorite, Berries, Spinach, Apples & Sweet Potatoes.

They are also made in a dedicated gluten-free facility. According to their website, “No gluten ever enters our doors!”

The Veggie-Go’s are also organic and non-GMO, have less that 1/3 of the sugar of leading fruit strips (with no added sugar either!), and have a 1/2 serving of fruit AND 1/2 serving of veggies in every strip.

For all these healthy reasons that give snacking a good rap, Naked Edge Snack’s Veggie Go’s are this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com. Congrats!

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

This week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Spiru-Tein Gold, a great tasting high protein meal replacement that I have been counting on for years.

After working out in the morning, I love to blend-up a spoonful or two of Spiru-Tein Gold with some coconut or almond milk, and sometimes even some fresh fruit. With 12 grams of complete protein, Spiru-Tein Gold gives you the much needed energy replacement that your body needs right after a workout.

Friday Favorite: Nordic Naturals Vitamin D Gummies

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Everyone needs Vitamin D3 for healthy bones, good moods, and immune system functions, but many of us (including me!) have a deficiency when it comes to this much needed vitamin.

I was surprised when my doctor told me I had to start taking a Vitamin D3 each and every day. But after chatting with him I found out that wearing my sunblock religiously, being indoors for most of the day, and these cold, dark drab New England never-ending winters play a huge factor in my Vitamin D3 deficiency.

This is when I discovered Nordic Naturals Vitamin D3 Gummies. These gummies give me 1000 I.U. of the vitamin (the recommended daily amount), along with a great wild berry taste. These vitamins also contain no artificial coloring, flavoring, or preservatives and are pectin based and gelatin free. They are also manufactured in a facility certified to be free of allergens derived from milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts and soy. They are also gluten-free (in fact, all of the Nordic Natural vitamins are gluten-free!)

Plus these vitamins are so easy to remember to taste since they taste so good! It’s funny how they have actually become my mid-afternoon treat! =)

Nordic Naturals Vitamin D3 Gummies are this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com because they are good tasting, mood boosting, and help keep my bones and immune system strong! Cheers and congratulations Nordic Naturals!

All of these curiously & crunchy reasons are why this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to HalfPops! Congratulations!

Friday Favorite: Color Garden Natural Food Coloring

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

I know that many of you have allergies to color dyes that are included in foods that we eat. Yellow #6, Blue #1, Green #3… And even for those that don’t have an allergic reaction to these dyes, who wants them anyway?

The synthetic ingredients in these food dyes has become a major concern when it comes to health issues.

That is why I was so excited to find Color Garden Natural Food Colorings. These gluten-free food colorings are made with plant-based natural colorings (red is derived from beet juice & purple carrot juice; Yellow is derived from turmeric; Blue from red cabbage juice; and Orange from annatto, caramel color and beet juice) these food coloring are safe and easy to use.

All of these all-natural and healthy reasons are why this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Color Garden Natural Food Colorings. Thanks for making the lives of those with color dye allergies (and those of us concerned about putting unnecessary ingredients into our bodies) much more colorful and fun!  Congratulations!

Friday Favorite: Pamela’s Figgies & Jammies Cookies

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

If you’re looking for a good old fashioned cookie you have to check out Pamela’s Product’s Figgies and Jammies.

Fashioned after the old standby cookie – the Fig Newton – this gluten-free version will knock your socks off. But with one difference… this cookie is far, far better. I love that the “cookie” portion of the Figgies & Jammies is soft, chewy and sweet. One bite and you’ll know what I am talking about!

I also am loving the size of this cookie. An extra-large version of a traditional fig cookie, you’ll need only one to satisfy that sweet tooth.

Figgies & Jammies (I just love the name… so cute!) come in four flavors: The traditional Mission Fig, Blueberry & Fig, Strawberry & Fig, and my favorite, Raspberry & Fig.

Super-sized cookie goodness, which brings you back to days long ago, are the reasons why this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Pamela’s Figgies & Jammies. Congratulations!

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

Want to try a new spin on chips? Try Eatrageous baked chip! This all-natural, extra crunchy gluten-free snack is like no other.

How do I love these chips? Let me count the ways.

I love the shape of Eatrageous chips… which is a penne pasta like shape. It’s tube shaped, fun, quirky and packed with a big crunch which is perfect for snacking and dipping.

I also love that that these chips are baked, all-natural, non-GMO, vegan, and of course, gluten-free.

All these reasons are why I am so thrilled that this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Eatrageous chips. Crunch away…. And Congratulations!
