It’s a gluten-free new year!
What life has had in store for my daughter has just begun to unravel, and we had no way of knowing what life was about to dish out!
An abrupt change in diet lifestyle is on the front page of the menu and we are quickly abiding by its ways.
Our daughter has been ill for 3 years and we have been visiting a plethora of doctors all of whom very much over-looked the obvious and the easiest thing to try, ridding gluten from her diet!
I could not take all the guesses anymore and I could take my daughter’s stomach pains never being resolved so I set out to find a Dr. who could make a difference.
With an angel on my shoulder we found a wonderful doctor who made changes as soon as he met with my daughter and fast forward a few weeks, she is doing so much better!
For the first time in 3 years she is not buckled over in pain, she is moving around, singing and back to her happy self.
She has cut gluten out of her diet and she is having amazing results. The stomach pains are gone and she feels so much better!
Now for the hard part, finding food that can help sustain her new diet. Meet GoBites, snacks that pack up and travel with ease and they are delivered right to your doorstep!

Snacking and eating for those with Gluten allergies has never been easier and they are super easy to throw into your purse, bag, etc and tote around.
There is no packaging nightmares, you are not using baggies, or buying tons of ingredients that you will never use again, these are simply prepared!
Another great snacking alternative for my daughter came in a different package, looking cookie-like and packing a great taste.
These are great treats from USANA Health Sciences.
This is a new line of gluten-free, low glycemic, protein snacks that will satisfy both your sweet tooth and your diet.
The deliciously tempting line includes two extra grams of protein.
The new protein snacks are non-GMO, contain no trans fats, and come in three delicious flavors including Choco Chip, Peanutty Bliss, and Fudge Delite.
My daughter is proud to report back to me that these are amazingly satisfying and they hit the sweet tooth with perfection.
I like them because they are individually packed, making them portion controlled as well as easy to tote and pack.
We of course have sought out some other interesting items to help that Gluten-Free diet along and Guava Paste from Iberia is one of those items.
We did not get too creative with the Guava Paste, but my daughter did slice it and eat it as well as place it on Gluten Free Crackers with cheese and she said it is the most amazing taste she has had in a long while!
The appearance is thick like jelly, but it is a solid brick and you can slice it with a sharp knife.
We also recommend making sure that the knife blade is warm (we ran it under tap water) in order to not stick as you slice. Do refrigerate this after you open it.
Finally, it is important to have a good breakfast each day and we have been using Carrington Farms Organic Milled Flax Seed to create some heavenly French Toast.
It is super easy and the results are the same each time– simply fab! We use our normal gluten free bread, 1-2 slices each.
We whip an egg, and we then add 1/3 c of skim milk and 2 teaspoons of vanilla and we mix in 2 tbsp of Carrington Farms Organic Milled Flax.
We make sure each side of the bread is well coated and then we fry it up in a skillet until it is golden and crispy and we add cinnamon or powdered sugar and plenty of fresh fruits!
Gluten free living demands strict adherence to march towards a better quality of life and these products help out the on-going fight to feel good, and support the gluten free lifestyle.
This year it is a new year with new eating rules and these foods help us out!
