Friday Favorite: DeLallo Gluten-Free Orzo

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Yup! You heard it right Gluten-Free ORZO! One of things I’ve missed the most since eating gluten-free is Orzo… those tiny little pastas that are excellent in cold salads, soups and stuffed peppers.

I discovered DeLallo Gluten-Free Orzo (and their yummy other gluten-free pastas) at the ExpoWest trade show that I visited in Los Angeles this month.

The DeLallo gluten-free pasta is made with the “the finest raw ingredients sourced from Northern Italy”. They also take special care to make sure the gluten-free pasta, which is a blend of corn and rice, is milled for  full-flavor and the perfect “al dente” bite, that we all know can be so hard to achieve with many other gluten-free pastas.

One of my favorite recipes to make with Orzo is this Olive & Feta Orzo Salad. It is perfect for the first day of Spring!

All of these reasons are why I am so happy to announce DeLallo Gluten-Free Pasta as this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com. Congratulations!

All the varieties of Self Healthy Kitchen are not gluten-free, but the one variety that is gluten-free is the Grilled Drunken Chicken, a dish consisting of grilled chicken topped in a sweet tequila sauce with brown rice blended with kale, cherries and pumpkin seeds. Delicious!

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

Naked Edge Snack’s Veggie-Go’s could quite possible be the absolute best snack-on-the-go.

Portable, tasty and full of all things good, Veggie-Go’s make you feel good about snacking.

My favorite is the Sweet Potato Pie, a sweet blend of Sweet potatoes, apples and spices, that reminds me of Thanksgiving Day. Other flavors offered are: Mountain Berry Spinach, Cinnamon Spice Beet, Carrot Ginger, and the newest addition, TropiKale, a delicious marriage of tropical fruits of kiwi, guava and mango with nutrient-dense kale, pumpkin, and apple.

Cheers and congratulations for Naked Edge Snack’s Veggie-Go’s for being awarded this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com!

Friday Favorite: So Delicious Cookie Dough Frozen Dessert Ice Cream – Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

When you hear the words “Cookie Dough Ice Cream” you imagine an ice cream that is packed with gluten and dairy. Now… thanks to So Delicious you can enjoy one of our favorite ice cream flavors FREE of these two culprits.

The So Delicious Cookie Dough “Ice Cream” is vanilla coconut based and packed with cookie dough chunks and chocolate shavings. I love eating it on a gluten-free ice cream cone, or in a bowl drizzled with chocolate sauce. And if the Cookie-Dough flavor is not your thing, So Delicious also has other gluten and dairy free varieties such as Cherry Amaretto, Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl, Green Tea and Pomegranate Chip and Coconut.

This week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to So Delicious because they let all of us gluten and dairy free folks satisfy our cookie-dough cravings. Thank you SO Delicious!

Friday Favorite: evol foods Street Tacos

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Eating at food trucks at lunchtime has become quite the craze over the past few years. The gourmet foods that are prepared in these roaming food trailers can be unbelievable… gourmet specialties served by some of the hippest chefs in the city.

If you want the taste and flavors of these food trucks right in your very own home or office, check out evol foods new Street Tacos. Found in the freezer section of your local grocer (I found mine at Target) the Street Tacos can be whipped up in minutes flat… and rival any fancy-dancy food truck out there.

I love the ease of preparing the tacos and the flavorful sauce pouches that come with each package. They are also packed with protein (8-15 grams per serving) and contain healthy all-natural ingredients. They have three (certified) gluten-free varieties: Uncured Bacon, Potato & Poblano Peppers with a pouch of Chipotle Crema; Shredded Chicken & Caramelized Onions with a pouch of Ancho Crema, and my favorite, Sweet Potato, Black Bean & Goat Cheese with a pouch of Salsa Verde.

Being able to enjoy fast & tasty food…. Every day and any time (not just when the food truck decides to show up!) are the reasons why this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com is awarded to evol foods. Congratulations!

Friday Favorite: Ore Ida Sweet Potato Fries

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

I love Sweet Potato Fries. So sweet and crispy. But up until a couple of weeks ago I have not been able to find any gluten-free Sweet Potato Fries to make at home.

Needless, I was thrilled when I saw the lettering “Gluten-Free” on the front of the package of Ore Ida Sweet Potato fries. These super crispy fries (at only 160 calories per serving) add a bit of flair when substituted for regular old French Fries. They are a great side dish to any burger, grilled chicken sandwich, steak, or even just on their own as a snack during game time. In addition, Ore Ida has over 30 products that are gluten-free.

Tasty, crispy and gluten-free… three reasons why this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Ore Ida Sweet Potato Fries. Cheers!

Need a cool & yummy gluten-free gift? Check out the KIND Cube

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Need a gift for a Yankee Swap that everyone will be trading for? Looking for that perfect gift for your gluten-free best friend who deserves nothing but the best? Searching for some healthy, yet delicious, snacks to help a college student get through finals?

Well… I found the perfect gift… the KIND Cube.

I admit, at first I thought that the KIND Cube was… ahhmmm … well, just a BOX of KIND Bars – but how wrong I was. This cube is an origami-type of contraption that pops downward when opened. The sides are packed with 20 full-sized KIND Bars (5 each of the Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond, Dark Chocolate Chili Almond and the Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan).

The cube is delivered in an all-black box with the KIND logo on the side. Nestled in ever so snuggly, the cube, once removed and opened, reminds me of a Jack-in-the-Box nicely waiting to surprise and fill the recipient with KIND-ness and glee.

Plus, this is the gift that keeps giving. Inside every KIND Cube is a “Kindawesome Card” – a card that the recipient can pass along to someone that makes the world more awesome through kindness. The card can be redeemed online for a handful of KIND bars.

So, if you’re looking to spread some holiday kindness (that keeps on spreading!), check out this link on Amazon to purchase the KIND Cube (and take advantage of the FREE shipping, too!)

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

As a topping for ice-cream, a drizzle on your favorite pie, or even as a dip for fresh fruit, Mrs. Richardson’s Butterscotch Caramel topping is the perfect gluten-free pantry item to make any dessert extra special.
