Dieting Gluten Free

My awesome friend Becky sent me this link today, and I thought maybe some of my readers might enjoy it.

Okay, so ignore that thing about the Cap'n Crunch shake there on the top (which sounds kind of gross even to me, and I'm the freak that actually thinks that glucose-intolerance-test soda tastes kind of good), and scroll on down to the low-POINTS gluten-free picks.

Of the things listed, we've tried the Larabars (the kids didn't really like), the Van's Wheat Free Waffles (good, but my kids prefer the taste of Lifestream's Buckwheat Waffles - these are actually yummy enough for me to steal), and the Blue Diamond Nut Thins - LOVE!

This post has absolutely nothing to do with budgeting, since all of these products are EX-PEN-SIVE. But, my theory is that when you're gluten intolerant, these little indulgences are worth it. I'd give up cable to buy my kids gluten free waffles, and I'm not even kidding about that.

A budget-friendly GF (and lite!) product we recently found (by accident) was Michelina's Lean Gourmet Creamy Parmesean Chicken. (Warning: This contains both maltodextrin and unidentified modified food starch, so proceed with caution, but we didn't have problems. Also, it totally contains milk and soy.) I can't say this was exactly my toddlers' cups of tea, but I thought it was yummy, and it was only .98. So. There it is.

It's so funny about the waffles. We first found the Lifestream buckwheat gf waffles and ate them. Later, I heard about Van's buckwheat waffles, and I liked them much better since they were less crunchy. However, my gluten-eating fiancé still buys the Lifestream ones for himself (he tries to be gf for me) since he likes the taste of the Lifestream ones better). Recently, I found the Van's blueberry gf waffles and they are even better (and higher in fiber). However, my fiancé's and my true favorite our the homemade waffles we make in the waffle iron we got on clearance with Pamela's mix. I usually am able to sneak in fruit and veges too! Take care!

Sadly all of the frozen waffles that I've looked at seem to have eggs or soy....but I (and the other members of my household) LOVE Cherrybrook Kitchen's GF waffle and pancake mix. Yummy yum yum.

I have to say that I've been pleasantly surprised by the GF options available.
