Back-to-School with Udi’s Gluten-Free Foods

School is back in session and coming up with gluten-free lunch ideas that won’t bore can sometimes be a challenge.

Let Udi’s make it easier (and more fun) with our selection of gourmet snacks and goodies that last will last in your child’s school bag and locker through all those morning activities and into lunchtime.

SONY DSCUdi’s Soft & Chewy Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites: Oh man, these are absolutely delicious! You’d never believe they are gluten free. The chocolate chips in the brownie give it a nice added texture.

SONY DSCUdi’s Ancient Grain Crisps with Aged Cheddar: Initially opening the bag it definitely smells aged, but once you get it into your mouth and chew it, they taste great. The family loved it so much, that my husband, who is not gluten free, requested that I make sure to pick up more bags when I’m at the store.

SONY DSCUdi’s White Sandwich Bread: Best gluten-free bread ever. I’ve tried many other brands, but this is by far our favorite. We load it up like a Subway sandwich for lunch, and the bread holds up great… not crumbly or dry at all. The kids even love it toasted in the morning spread with butter and jam.

SONY DSCUdi’s Mighty Bagel: These bagels are awesome! They are not crumbly and dry. The kids love these bagels for breakfast out of the toaster. I’ve also made mini pizza bagels with these as an after school snack, which was a surprise and a huge hit with the kids.

SONY DSCUdi’s Whole Grain Hamburger Buns: Soft, not crumbly, good taste. It’s nice to finally have a complete hamburger, bun and all.

SONY DSCSoft & Sweet Cinnamon Raisin Bread: Soft, sweet and delectable. Warmed up with a little bit of butter spread on with a cup of coffee. Mmmm… makes me think of autumn and all it’s beauty.

SONY DSCHarvest Crunch Muffins: Yummy!!! We had these for breakfast. Even better is that it’s so nutritious made with cranberries, sweet potato, quinoa flour, flax seed, and pepitas. Great way to start the morning.

SONY DSCUdi’s Plain Tortillas: I was so excited to try these, because I honestly miss flour tortillas and was tired of the corn tortillas. Last night, I tried the tortillas for tacos. I threw 4 of them wrapped in a damp paper towel in the microwave for 20 seconds. I wrapped taco meat into the warm tortilla, but disappointed it fell apart. The second time around, I wrapped the tortillas individually in a damp paper towel for 20 seconds and what a difference! Chewy warm tortilla that held all of its taco filling together. Absolutely delicious!!! Today, I made a sandwich wrap for lunch, and again, delicious, chewy and it held the lunch meat together.

SONY DSCUdi’s Maple Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies: I brought a box of these over to my cousin’s house over the weekend. My cousin put them out and within 2 minutes they were all gone. Guests couldn’t believe these cookies were gluten free. They were a little crumbly, but soft and chewy. Extremely tasty!

SONY DSCUdi’s Cherry Walnut Granola Clusters With Omega 3: These are full of taste, great snack at home or on the go. These are clusters full of gluten free oats, ancient grains, fruits and nuts. It is good source of iron. My kids can’t get enough of theses clusters.

Because of Udi‘s products, I can honestly say my children and I don’t feel like we are on a gluten-free diet because of the variety of foods they carry. We can finally have food we have missed eating that actually tastes great and almost, or as close as it can get, to the wheat laden foods. When it comes to gluten-free foods, you can never go wrong with UDI’s brand. My only suggestion is to keep your breads, buns and bagels in the freezer to keep them fresh longer and just take it out when ready to eat it by heating it in the microwave for a few seconds and they come out warm, fresh and not crumbly.

Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches #TysonGoodness #CBias

I am always on the lookout for a great after school snack for my kids. I’m looking for something filling BUT not too filling. I’d also like it to be something that isn’t junk food if I can help it. Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwich is one of those items that fit that bill. Here is my shopping trip to get one of my kids favorite after school snacks:

As you can see, my kids love these as their after school snack. I like that it holds them over to dinner, and they are NOT on a sugar high. They are able to concentrate and get their homework done. Even before I did this shop, Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches are a product I have actually bought before in the past. I love how easy it is to make. You literally throw them into the microwave. That’s it. It is easy enough that I think Madison could actually make these herself.

Now, you can’t get these at every Walmart (I ended up having to go to another local one than my regular Walmart). Make sure that you check out Tyson‘s site for the local Walmart that carries these. There is also a great Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches Offer going on right now: Buy 2 Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches at a participating Walmart and receive a $5 Walmart Gift Card! (This offer is good while supplies last!)

If you are looking for a great after school snack, Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches are the answer.
