Friday Favorite:Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Apple Blueberry Granola

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Bob’s Red Mill Apple Blueberry Granola is a quick and easy breakfast that is loved by all.

Packed with whole grain gluten-free oats, it is a perfect way to start your day and fill your belly. I love to sprinkle some on top of my favorite yogurt or cultured coconut milk, or even enjoyed traditionally by being poured in a bowl and enjoyed topped with milk and fresh cut fruit.

Another bonus is that this crunchy cereal is easy to find, since it is carried by most major grocery stores.

All of these reasons are why this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Bob’s Red Mill’s Whole Grain Apple Blueberry Granola – Congratulations!

Friday Favorite: Gorton’s Seafood Gluten-Free Grilled Haddock

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

My, oh my! Helloooo Gorton’s Fisherman!  I was pleasantly surprised when I was strolling through the frozen food section of my local Target store and found Gorton Seafood’s Gluten-Free Grilled Haddock. The fisherman on the front of the box brought back flash-backs of dinner time when I was a kid, when my Mom would make me and my sisters fish sticks for supper. So, for nostalgias sake, I just had to give these gluten-free counterparts a try.

If you’re looking for a quick (cooks for only 14-16 minutes in your 350 degree oven) and tasty dinner these gluten-free fish fillets are perfect.

These fish fillets have only 80 calories per servings  (though I do admit… I ate two servings with my dinner.) They also have no MSG, artificial colors or flavors, and are made with 100% wild-caught haddock.

I tried the Signature Grilled, but there are also a ton more gluten-free flavors that Gorton’s makes. I’ll be trying these out these other flavors at a later date, and I also look forward to making myself a nice grilled fish sandwich on gluten-free bread with these!

For being a quick, easy, tasty and simple dinner idea, Gorton’s Seafood’s Gluten-Free Grilled Haddock is awarded this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com. Congratulations!

Friday Favorite: Panera’s Tuscan Style Chicken Soup

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Brrr…. Baby, it’s cold outside! That is why I love to have a hot, steaming bowl of soup for lunch on the days were the wind is whipping, the temperature is dipping and my tummy is itching for a tasty and warm gluten-free treat.

I was thrilled to find Panera’s Tuscan Style Chicken Soup at my local BJ’s Wholesale Club this past week. Packaged in two (2) convenient 20-ounce containers per package, this soup was a bargain compared to the prices that you pay at a restaurant.

The soup is packed with chunks of chicken, white beans, spinach and onions… all simmered in a Tuscan-style tomato based broth. Delicious!

Friday Favorite: Karma Wellness Water

Thursday, September 12th, 2013
The two things that I need to remember every day is to 1.) Drink more water, and 2.) Take my vitamins. Two very, very simple things that for some reason I always seem to forget!

That is why this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Karma Wellness Water, a gluten-free product that transform water into wellness! Why? This water is pack with 110% (or more) of the recommended daily allowance of seven essential vitamins: A, B3-Niacin, B5, B6, B12, D, and E. And unlike other “vitamin waters”, Karma Wellness Water contains three to six times the active ingredients of competing brands.

I also love the super-cool cap on each of these bottles of water.  The patented, one-of-a-kind KarmaCap delivers the goodness direct into the water by pushing the cap and infusing the vitamins and nutrients directly into the water. This keeps the vitamins at a maximum potency and at their peak of freshness.

My favorite flavor is the Raspberry Guava Jackfruit, but other flavors bursting with vitamins, superfruits & antioxidants include: Acai Pomberry, Coconut Pineapple, Passionfruit Green Tea and Orange Mango.

Getting my water AND getting my vitamins in a tasty refreshing gluten-free drink are the reasons why this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Karma Wellness Water. Congratulations!

Being gluten-free (in fact all of Boar’s Head’s meats, cheeses, and condiments are all gluten-free!), being only 15 calories per serving and packed with flavor are the reasons why this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Boar’s Head Horseradish Sauce. Congratulations!
