#SoGood Spotlight

We’ve had some serious hits and misses in the gluten-free pancake/waffle arena. Often thick and gummy they were dependent on the quality of flours, usually the worse the nutrition profile the better my family liked them. Of course.

I tried making my own paleo recipes and they were rarely well received – usually soggy and after several cups of almond flour and 6 eggs they were usually pretty rich as well.Intro Birch Benders Paleo Pancake Mix. My family ALL loves these pancakes and waffles. And it is full of decent ingredients. And you only add water to the mix. Nothing else. Makes my life easier + healthy ingredients everyone loves for the win!

If you can find a sale or use Thrive Market you can pay as little as $4.50 a bag. However, here’s a game changer – our Midwest Costco now carries this in a ginormous 42 oz bag, for an amazing $10.99! That’s 3 1/2 time’s the amount of the standard 12 oz bag. Great deal! One 12 oz bag is enough for our family of five with a few leftovers. I hope your family enjoys this product as much as we do!

Paleo Crepes – #sogood

This recipe is a winner folks. I am obsessed. A ziploc bag of 7 of these beauties even made it to Kauai and survived the week. #Sogood! It’s a perfectly neutral crepe, paired easily with almond butter and banana, whipped cream and berries, or a savory option such as sausage and cheese. You could also use this for tacos or sandwich wraps. The possibilities are endless!

It is so easy to throw together with only 5 ingredients. Bonus that my kids also love these. Make a double batch and keep school mornings quick and simple. Give it a try and let me know what you think!IMG_0031IMG_0033

I have not tested these crepes with any other coconut flour other than Anthony’s Premium Organic Coconut Flour. It has tested perfectly and I would recommend it. Also available on Amazon Prime for a great price. Score!

Allergy Free Alaska’s Gluten-Free Pecan Pie (Corn Syrup Free, Refined Sugar Free) I’ve made this pie at least 6 times. It is so much tastier than the traditional version full of corn syrup! You will not be disappointed!

Gluten-Free Goddess Quinoa Salad with Pears & Spinach This is a nice light salad to round out what can be a pretty heavy meal. The dressing is a bit heavy on the maple flavor and to lighten it a bit I’ve swapped the maple for honey.

Quinoa salad with pears spinach chick peas and toasted pecans is a delicious and light gluten free vegan side dish

Aldi’s Gluten-Free French Fried Onions & Cornbread Mix – this product line, Live GFree (most of which is certified gluten-free by GFCO), continues to pleasantly surprise me at the discount grocer Aldi. What a nice surprise to find these products last season!

Canyon Bakehouse Classic Gluten-Free Stuffing Now this is a pretty traditional stuffing but trust me when it comes to gluten-free bread, you do want an expert’s ratio of liquid and dry ingredients for a stuffing recipe.

#SoGood Spotlight

The #SoGood Spotlight is going to be my way of sharing new or favorite products I’ve tried on the blog. I am always in search of new, celiac-safe options.

Today’s rendition is focused on my go-to snacks for our upcoming trip! Here’s my favorite new bar – I’m packing one for each day. I love that it’s a list of REAL ingredients and a decent amount of protein. 

You never know when you might be stranded with no food options, especially while hiking the North Shore of Kauai☀️🌺🐠

Coming up soon will be my newest breakfast recipe, paleo crepes, trust me the whole family will love these!!

A New Venture

I’m excited to open this new chapter with Gluten-Free So Good.  My path to living gluten-free has been a bumpy one and my outlook has grown considerably.  I feel like it is time to share my knowledge in hopes I can help others on their journey to health.

A little education, a little travel, and a little dining and fun. That’s what I hope to share. Because being in fear of food, travel and life is just no way to live. So take a peek at where I’ve been, what I’ve experienced and where I’m headed. Hopefully it has you saying. . .  it’s #SOGOOD!

 

Breakfast Hash – GF, DF, Paleo

Breakfast Hash
I love the versatility of this breakfast for everyday or traveling. It's simple because it only requires a heating method (although I have been known to sneak bites cold also!). It freezes well, see how I travel to Hawaii with it on the Hotel Living page, and a full batch can stretch me for 7-10 days if I freeze half and store half in the fridge. If I am at home and have the time I will often fry an egg over easy to go with this.
