Makes the Most of Gluten Free Basics

Great Tips:
Be careful with Amy’s products, because they are processed on machinery that processes Wheat.

But Larabar’s are not only gluten-free but made with GREAT natural ingredients.

Grocery Shopping Made Easy

Ready every food label thoroughly could be overwhelming, exhausting, and confusing. Kate, stumbled upon a great app that allows you to insert allergies and other dietary preferences such as no added sugars or low sodium. The app has been a handy resource and I can’t help but recommend it to all my friends. It is also a great resource for your significant other, when they want to make dinner and have no idea what is “Safe”, they can use this app for help.

Once you create your account with your own unique needs, all you have to do is scan the barcode of the food you are interested in purchasing or consuming. The ShopWell app will either say AVOID (and will give an explanation why) or a number that shows that the food is a either a weak match, medium match, or a strong match for your personal dietary desires or needs.

The link for the FREE ShopWell app for iPhone users is posted below:

Foods to avoid

The link below is an invaluable tool for the newly diagnosed. It will help you prepare your kitchen and mindset to your new lifestyle. It can be scary and daunting to look at a list of “No’s,” but trust me it gets easier over time. If you get in a food frenzy and think you just might fail; Try Jif peanut butter on a banana, Nestle semi sweet chocolate chips in Chobani or Oikos vanilla yogurt, or fresh fruit on Breyers Natural vanilla ice cream. I don’t feel so bad after eating something so good and reasonably healthy. If you are dairy sensitive, don’t forget the Lactaid 😉
