You may or may not know that May is Celiac Awareness month and I wanted to spread the gluten-free word. I'm sure most of you know someone (or are someone) with Celiac or a gluten allergy or intolerance, which is actually pretty frightening.
Now in our household, we don't have any Celiac disease, but there are gluten allergies and sensitivities and a just plain love/hate relationship with wheat. For myself, I have been avoiding wheat for the past 2 years. I don't have Celiac, but my body doesn't care for the stuff. From aches and pains, to digestive disturbances and the bloat and weigh gain, there's more than enough reasons for me (and my family) to be gluten-free. And don't even get me started on the condition of wheat these days!
I'm still surprised at the looks and comments from relatives when we tell them we are gluten-free. For some reason they think that we don't eat anything except for salad. I'm not sure where this notion came from that we can't eat anything. And yes, there is lots to avoid and be careful with, but oh man...there's lots to enjoy!
Some of our favourite foods are from Glutino. Glutino started way back in 1983 and now includes Gluten Free Pantry and Udi's Gluten Free Bread and they're now a part of Boulder Brands. Needless to say, they know a thing or two about gluten-free!
What my family loves the most about Glutino is their wide variety of delicious products. Whether it's toast or pancakes for a weekend breakfast or crackers and pretzels for entertaining, they line of delicious wheat-less products seems never ending.
I love serving their stuff to our wheat-eating friends and family. Yeah, I will admit I can't wait to see the looks on their faces after devouring some tasty treats and then discovering they were gluten-free. They're always so surprised.
"Really?! THAT was gluten-free??"
