Living Fully for Celiac Awareness Month & Glutino Giveaway!

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??"

Gone are the days of terrible, tasteless, wheat-less products! Embrace your gluten-free lifestyle and live fully with Glutino!   In honour of Celiac Awareness month I am giving away 4 coupons for FREE Glutino products! Good luck!

  1. Gluten does not = only wheat. Gluten is wheat, barley, rye, and many more derivatives of them.
    A wheat allergy is totally different then Celiac. With a wheat allergy you can still have barley and rye.
    And no one has a gluten allergy. Maybe an intolerance, but even that is a very small percentage of people.
    Celiac disease is a very serious autoimmune disease which you don't seem to understand.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I am fully aware of the seriousness of Celiac disease along with the various sources of gluten as I do have close friends who suffer from the disease. My post was simply a way to inform people that there are good tasting gluten-free options out there for both people who are Celiac or just avoiding gluten.

  2. Well, I liked your post. You clearly state that you don't have Celiac disease, which then lets you audience know that you are probably not an expert on the subject. There's no need to get mean about your lack of information. What is important, is that you have taste-buds and can recommend what tastes good. Thanks for the post!

    I really miss Little Caesar's crazy bread. Or just yummy tasting bread that doesn't cost a fortune or taste hours to make yourself.

  3. Pancakes are something that is available gluten-free, but there aren't any on the market that are really worth eating.

    1. There's a Glutino mix in a little jug that you just add liquid too that I think tastes really nice. It's even light and fluffy!
