Pictures of Products
I'd like to start by saying that I am SOOOO sorry for not posting for the past couple of weeks. I have been extremely busy with school, working on my portfolio, baking and developing recipes. I have quite a few new recipes that I am excited about posting this week!
When I first went gluten free, I searched the web for countless hours trying to find what I could and could not eat. Lets not even mention how hard it is to find things that are free of both gluten and dairy. Lists of products are helpful, but I really like pictures! Pictures of products are helpful to me, because gluten and dairy free product labels are often times small, making the product harder to find. If I know in advance what a product looks like, I have a better chance of finding it on a shelf. Of course there is always the possibility that packaging may change. Sometimes when I see a product's picture and find out that I can have it, I feel rather dumb because many times it is a product that I have already seen, but assumed it was not safe. I have compiled some of the items that I use and enjoy. I will continue to update this periodically. So let the product picture mania begin!
Big Lots Products
The India Spice Chai is one of my favorites.
Thai Kitchen Rice Noodles- Are gluten free and vegan. I find these really handy because they are quick and easy to prepare. The smaller packages afford you the convenience of ramen noodles. I found the smaller packages at Biglots for 50 cents a piece!
I was interested in trying this because it does not contain any dairy ingredients. My husband and I had these the other day and enjoyed them immensely! Admittedly, I am not a pancake connoisseur, but I love pancakes and thought these were great. Especially because they are so easy to prepare. I hear Pamela's Baking and Pancake Mix is awesome, but it has milk in it, so I have never been able to try it.
