#GlutenFree Products I like

I mostly eat a lot of veggies, fruits and meats since newly starting my gluten-free diet. I have about 30 lbs that I would be happy to lose that a non-functional thyroid and pregnancy has put on me.  So I really try to limit my intake on yummy treats. But when I am craving some sweetness I have found the items below quite yummy.

I am definitely new to gluten-free baking. I have tried to make banana bread with not so great results. I have made some black bean brownies and those were ok too.  When my birthday came up last week – and so far no gluten free bakeries that I have found in WPB – I didnt want to chance my cake on another baking disaster. I made a devil foods cake using Betty Crocker Mix. It was pretty good – even glutenous husband liked it.  I have also recently made the Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookies too and they went over well.

One of the worse things to do is going to the store hungry and on a recent trip – hunger took over and these ended up in my basket.  I stumble upon these yummy gluten free oatmeal cookies in the cookie aisle at publix – the oats they use are certified gluten free – they were really moist and chewy (I hate dry cookies) and they were quite good too! there arent that many to a box though and I caught glutenous husband and kid eating them! They have their own stuff! dont eat mine! they are also only 55 calories per a cookie!! yum!
Unfortunately, becuase they were so good and the gluten-eaters ate them too- they didnt make it long in my house and i am out!

Also while shopping at my local publix, I was super excited to see new shelf labeling of products that are gluten-free. Definitely helpful but I still always check the box! But now I look for blue dots with GF on them!
Anything to make shopping with a toddler usually in tow easier.

New sweet gluten-free find – Froyolicious frozen yogurt

I have been trying to be healthy since going gluten-free almost 2 months ago. I have lost 14 lbs! but I do get a sweet tooth craving! Not wanting to blow all my efforts of weightloss out the door – I was very happy to find Froyolicious in Royal Palm Beach.

 

It is self served frozen yogurt with a yummy toppings bar. I messaged Fro-yo (as i call it for short) via their facebook page

– and they were very quick on getting back to me what flavors were gluten-free

Gluten Free West Palm Beach Love Fro-yo – which flavors are gluten free? I figure flavors like cake batter, cookie and creams are not. what about you chocolate and vanilla? Thanks!

froyolicious The only current flavor as of today’s date that contains Gluten is cookies and cream (due to the use of real cookies).
Current Flavors – Thin Mint Cookie, and the rest is Pink Lemonade Sorbet, Blueberry Tart, Raspberry Tart, Red Velvet Cupcake, Sugar Free Vanilla, Dreamy Dark Chocolate, Cookie N Cream, Cake Batter, and Original Tart!!

Of course be careful in the toppings bar – there are some gluten ones in there – but plenty of gluten-free options like fresh fruit, m&ms, etc. they price it by weight.  very yummy! can’t wait to go back
