Stories, recipes and health info for the gluten challenged

Tag Archives: hard to find

As a foodie mag junkie, I love discovering new recipes and fantasizing about the ones that I would never attempt (Yorkshire pudding, I’m talking to you). But, being g-free means that a good portion of those recipes aren’t even relevant to me.

Enter Living Withoutliving-without, the food and lifestyle magazine for people with food allergies and sensitivities. I first encountered Living Without in the checkout aisle in Whole Foods. While being g-free doesn’t mean I’m nut-free, dairy-free or whatever-else-you-can-be-allergic-to-free, Living Without does a decent job of including content for readers of all interests. And, with simple recipes that use many readily available or easy to find ingredients, Living Without is a great reference for any g-free person’s kitchen.

Do you remember Good n’ Plenty? And by “remember” I mean “walk past in the candy aisle with feelings of longing and sadness”? If so, you’re not alone. Along with my celiac diagnosis, I had to bid farewell to Werther’s, Riesen and many of my favorite candies. This includes, regretfully, all things licorice. Until now!

scottydogsFor all you black-jelly-bean-eating, sugary-sticky-candy-loving folks out there, I have found the proverbial candied unicorn of the g-free world: g-free licorice in BOTH black and cherry. It’s made by Gimbals and available in some grocery stores and online. While all Gimbals candy is gluten free, their licorice comes in the whimsical shape of a Scotty dog. Stick with these little friends and you’ll be enjoying g-free licorice Heaven!

By all means, join me in my happy dance!
