Friday Favorites: Shabtai Gourmet Lady Fingers

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Are the holiday’s quickly approaching and you are starting to feel a little glum thinking about all of the sweet and yummy desserts that you will miss due to your gluten-free or allergen-free diet?

Well, fear no more, my sweet tooth friends! Shabtai Gourmet has come to our rescue!

Shabtai Gourmet has earned a spot in this week’s Favorite Friday sine they have such a wide variety of cookies, cakes, danish, brownies, cupcakes and rolls to make any celiac or allergen-free squeal with joy!

These products are too yummy to be true – plus they are Gluten Free, Casein Free, Lactose Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free, Corn Free & Peanut Free!

A few of my favorites are the Ring-Ting Cupcakes (Yes- these are like Ring-Dings for the gluten and allergen-free), the Swiss Chocolate Roll (these are like Ho-Ho’s!), the Raspberry Roll (a favorite with a tea or coffee break) and, my all time favorite, the Lady Fingers, that I use to make a phenomenal Tiramisu – make sure you check out the recipe in the BeFreeForMe website!

WIN-It-Wednesday: Go Picnic – Meals on the Go!

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

One of BeFreeForMe’s most popular WIN-It-Wednesday blogs was the Go Picnic “on-the-go” gluten and allergen free meal kits. I think it was probably a favorite since anyone that is on a gluten-free diet or has food allergies knows how hard it can be to have food that you can take on the run.

Being gluten or allergen free means that you always have to think ahead. And as we all know that sometimes can be tough.

When life gets a tad bit crazy, planning meals-on-the-go becomes no picnic. That’s why I was so excited when I found GoPicnic, quick and easy meals on-the-go, as a healthy and nutritious snack or meal options.
I love these products. They don’t need any refrigeration, and there are lots of flavors and options in every “meal kit”. My favorite is the ZestyBreak kit that contains turkey pepperoni slices, asiago cheese spread, Mary’s Gone Crackers whole grain crackers, a yummy zesty snack mix called Sheffa, dried apricots, a Lara bar and a piece of dark chocolate! Perfect for an airplane, road trip, or a between meeting or afterschool snack.

They have something for (almost) everyone. They offer gluten-free, kosher, nut-free, vegetarian, halal, soy-free, egg-free, fish & shellfish-free products that appeal to the kids (think Lunchables for the gluten and allergy free set) and for the adults (Think stashing in your glove compartment or briefcase for those times you need a quick & easy meal in a jiff).
