Traveling with a celiac and gluten-free household or individual can have its challenges. Although gluten-free products are much easier to find these days I always try to pack my tried and true snacks I know will will be appreciated, consumed and that certainly pack and travel well. I knew without a doubt I had to […]
I remember when I was pregnant and at every single OB appointment I was asked, “are you taking folic acid”. It was apparently the most important thing to my OB’s nurses. So what exactly is “folic acid” and what is this “methylfolate” you sometimes see on the back of supplements? I am more on the […]
We have all had that dreaded mucus. Especially those who are celiac. It is a pain! Sleep is harder, allergies get way worse and constantly having to clear your throat is not fun. The question stands, how to get rid of mucus? Although there are environmental reasons for mucus, it is important to avoid the […]
Many of us have heard of online memberships that send you a box every month, every other month, etc. I first noticed them in the beauty industry and then they extended to dog products, kid products, jewelry, etc. With busy lives it is so rewarding to get a fun and special box delivered to […]
I have to make meals both appealing to my son and husband. Although my son enjoys different spices, I try to not add too much so his stomach doesn’t get upset. These Turkey meatballs for sensitive stomachs can be pre-made and they store very well. I am pleased to announce that Brixton has finally decided […]

It has a very dark chocolate flavor […]
There is this joke when you are a new mom to just “put some coconut oil on it” for just about everything. Diaper rash, cut, dry skin, etc. You even hear the occasional joke of someone saying to use it for something totally irrelevant like “Didn’t get enough sleep last night? Just rub some coconut […]
With May being the official celiac awareness month, I wanted to dedicate a post to just that. Maybe I will clarify for some of you some things you never knew or some things you have forgotten. First off, celiac disease is NOT a food allergy. It isn’t something you can “outgrow”. Celiac disease is one […]
I remember the first time I tried a Flax4Life product. It was their blueberry muffin and I was extremely impressed. Incredibly flavorful, moist and the fiber in these muffins was just awesome. So, when I saw they released new products I pretty much had to try them. I mean, flax brownies? Did someone say chocolate […]
Food is all about balance. Balance means tasty treats too. I am all about treats but since my son is only 13 months old I have to come up with treats on the healthier side. This gluten free nutrition packed jello is extra nutritious because it has the fiber from apple sauce instead of straight juice and […]
Diets are always a hot topic. With our societies health as a whole declining many are searching for that “perfect diet”. In fact, the word “diet” has somewhat of a stigma connected to it. A diet should be a lifestyle change, not something you do for a couple days crazily and then eat flaming […]
Is it ever not flu season? Is a bug ever NOT going around. Feels as though there is always something going around being passed from kid to kid, family member to family member and coworker to coworker. We do our best to maintain a healthy immune system so we don’t catch what is going around […]
