Udi’s Gluten Free Foods

Now, nobody in my house has to be gluten free. However, I do like to find things that will help us become more healthy. Gluten tends to be hard for your body to digest which causes the feeling of tiredness when you are over-full. When you avoid gluten, that excess energy can be diverted elsewhere rather than your digestive track. That being said — I tried a few of Udi‘s products on my family.

browniesDark Chocolate Brownie Bites was a huge favorite in my house. My kids ate these in less than 12 hours. They are decadently rich and perfectly satisfying. Indulgent dark chocolate will satisfy all of your sweet-tooth cravings, and wrap you in gluten free joy. Sure to be a hit with everyone, you won’t be able to resist these moist, fudgy bites of brownie! I couldn’t believe these were gluten free — they were sooo good!

muffinsHarvest Crunch Muffins were another hit in my house. These are great because not only are they gluten free, but they are also dairy, soy, and nut free. Madison ate these for breakfast for a week! They are filled with healthy ingredients rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals (3g protein, 4g fiber per muffin).

bagelsThe Mighty Bagel is filled with healthy ingredients that are rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals (8g protein, 3g fiber per bagel). These bagels will give you the boost you need to get your morning off to the right start. This is another morning favorite of Madison’s.

bunsGrilling in the backyard is now delicious, nutritious and gluten free with these Whole Grain Hamburger Buns. Loaded with 6 grams of fiber, these hamburger buns come fully equipped with the right nutrients to accompany a savory sandwich or classic burger. This is one of my favorite products of theirs!

white breadThe bread that started it all is now a customer favorite. Their signature light and fluffy white sandwich bread is made with all natural ingredients without added fillers. Reward yourself during your next meal and enjoy the luxury of bread again. This makes great sandwich bread too!

cookiesRich chocolate chips and fresh baked cookie dough make this classic an instant hit. These Chocolate Chip Cookies didn’t last 24 hours in my house. Everybody loved them and couldn’t believe they were gluten free. They were so good.

If you are looking for great gluten free products, you have to check out Udi’s. They have great products with great taste. I highly recommend them!

Fisher Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds Giveaway!

Many of us have New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier. While nuts may not be the lowest calorie item on the menu, they’re at the top of the chart for being a great source of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. With plenty of flavor and crunch to go around, they’re also a great addition to healthy salads, yogurt and oatmeal. That is why I have teamed up again with Fisher!

Rachael Ray’s Nutrish

This post brought to you by Nutrish. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now, I normally talk about people food on here. However, we recently tried out an excellent dog food (let me rephrase that, our dog Daisy tried out an excellent dog food!) that I want to tell you about.

Our vet currently is all about dog food that doesn't have a bunch of additives and stuff that our dog doesn't need. He actually has a list of foods on his preferred list that he gives you when you come in for your first visit. For me (who never had a dog before), it was extremely helpful. I am thinking that Rachael Ray Nutrish just 6 dry dog food will also make his list. Nutrish is a limited ingredient dog food with only six simple, natural ingredients, plus vitamins and minerals for complete and balanced nutrition. It does not include corn, wheat, or soy. Even better though, did you know that proceeds from Rachael Ray’s Nutrish product go toward helping animals in need through her Rachael’s Rescue organization?

Daisy seemed to like the food. I actually caught her trying to open it before we gave it to her. (<– see picture). :) The best part of Nutrish is that you too can get a free sample, so you can try it for free and make sure your dog enjoys it too.
