Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread

Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread is exceedingly versatile, and the texture is the closest I’ve found to tradition bread. Most importantly…

Udi’s bread is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and soy-free.

This light, soft bread is fulfilling and satisfying for those living with multiple food allergies. Udi’s traditional flavor and appearance make it difficult to tell its even gluten free.  It amazes me how they were able to get the texture for this bread, and keep it from crumbling like so many other gluten free breads do.

A 12-ounce bag of Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread contains approximately 14 slices. One serving size is 2 slices of bread. Each serving is 160 calories, 4.5 g total fat, 0 saturated/trans fat, 0 cholesterol, 23 g carbs, 3 g sugar, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

The two minor downfalls of this bread are the small loaves and the price. This bread is almost worth the price, and the slices of bread are about 1-inch smaller than traditional bread.

The good news is the prices of gluten free products will continue to go down as more people continue to purchase them. Those in bigger cities may find this bread to be less expensive than those in the Midwest. There are numerous coupons for Udi’s bread online. Save a few extra bucks and print a few of coupons off before going to the store.

Stock up on Udi’s bread when it’s on sale, and store the loaf in the freezer for a longer shelf life. Simply reheat in toaster oven or thaw the bread on the counter when ready to eat.

This bread is typically found in the freezer section of many grocery stores, and can also be purchased online at Udi’s website. Grocery stores often take request for new products, so if your store doesn’t have Udi’s bread – ask them to consider carrying it.

Although this bread is still too dry for me to enjoy a peanut butter sandwich, I have enjoyed using this bread for toast with eggs and chicken salad sandwiches for lunch.  This bread also makes great tasting croutons for soups and salads.

Redbridge Gluten Free Beer Review

Redbridge is my gluten free beer of choice; this delicious, high quality beer is the perfect recommendation for anyone transitioning to a gluten free life.

This beer is made from sorghum, a safe grain for those allergic to wheat or gluten, and no cross-contamination takes place in the brewing process to preserve its purity. Redbridge beer has a rich, well-balanced flavor that goes down smooth.

The price was very reasonable ($8.99) for a six-pack of gluten free beer. I personally enjoy drinking this beer right out of the bottle more than the glass. For some reason when I drink this beer out of a glass it doesn’t taste as full-bodied compared to the bottle.

This beer reminds me a lot of many traditional gluten lagers such as Heinekan. There is a moderately hopped taste to this beer with a smooth, crisp finish. I’m hoping someday Redbridge could come out with a cheap, mass produced gluten free beer.

One thing I really enjoy about Redbridge, besides their beer, is that Redbridge and the non-profit National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) are working together to build a partnership to increase awareness of Celiac Disease, and funding dedicated to finding a cure for Celiac Disease.

Pair this beer with Gluten Free BBQ Chicken Pizza for your friends and family, and you just can’t go wrong. Enjoy–responsibly!

King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Pizza Crust Review

I am a huge fan of King Arthurs’ Products. This gluten free pizza crust blend is one of my favorites to make. Although this gluten free crust tends to be on the higher end cost wise, it is worth every penny. The pizza crust is soft and smooth, and there is enough crust to make two large pizzas.

Gluten Free Bisquick Review

Gluten Free Bisquick is one of my favorite products!

This product allows ease and flexibility in baking again. Cooking with Gluten Free Bisquick is almost fool-proof for any cook. This product offers tons of great  great tasting recipes everyone will enjoy! This product is so good it can be difficult to tell the difference between the gluten recipes and  the gluten free recipes.

To anyone new to cooking and baking gluten free, Gluten Free Bisquick recipes are great recipes to begin with. Gluten Free Bisquick can be found at your local grocery store in the health food section, gluten free section or next to the regular pancake and baking mixes. This product will range in price from 5-6 dollars  for a one pound (16oz) box. This may seem extremely high when comparing Gluten Free Bisquick’s prices vs. regular Bisquick’s prices, but I have found the ease and fool-proof flexibility in this product to be worth the price.

Gluten Free Bisquick makes baking easy again. Convert many of your old recipes Bisquick recipes by simply replacing regular Bisquick with Gluten Free Bisquick. That’s all!

1 cup Bisquick = 1 cup Gluten Free Bisquick

*Be sure to note that gluten free Bisquick is a rice flour not a wheat flour, so this conversion will not work for every recipe.
