Celiac Awareness Month Day 25: LOVE by Sarah Walton // Organic, Gluten Free, Vegan Skin Care

We can tend to forget that keeping our hands gluten free is a big part of having a gluten free lifestyle, too. Cross contamination, through food preparation and handling is a big issue. But with the proper care, and hand creams, we can help avoid this from happening. With that said, I would like to introduce you to a fabulous new product line, owned and operated by a women (I love supporting small business owners :), called LOVE by Sarah Walton.
Sarah Walton has a mission in life: to remind women that taking care of ourselves is key to our happiness, and to the happiness of those around us. With this mission in mind, Sarah recently launched a line of organic, gluten-free, vegan skin care. Each batch is made locally, by hand, with great care, love and focus. 

When she decided to launch this line, she was so inspired by her cousin, who’s son has Celiac’s Disease. She was talking about how hard it was to find a great gluten-free hand cream that she could use without contaminating his food. And BAM…there it is was. So she started making recipe after recipe until she had created the perfect hand cream. Sarah has since moved on to body butter and sugar scrubs, and of course more products are on the way!


Sarah sent me three hand creams and a sugar scrub to try. (Thanks Sarah!) 
Would you like to enjoy the warm feeling of the sun on your skin without having to get on a plane and book a vacation? Of course, who doesn’t want the vacation? But for those of us who can’t jump on a plane right now, I think you would really enjoy the Coconut & Lime organic sugar scrub. It will make you feel warm and happy while leaving your skin polished and beautiful. 
Coconut oil has become one of the most sought after ingredients for a healthy body, inside and out. This, combined with refreshing lime that is packed with antioxidants, Vitamin C and flavonoids, sweep away toxins and leave skin feeling rejuvenated and healthy. After using this scrub two to three times a week for a few weeks my skin looks and feels great! It’s silky, polished, and noticeably less dry. 
Of the three whipped hand creams I tried – Lucious Lemon, Birthday Cake, and Cool Cucumber – Cool Cucumber was my favorite. It has a perfect scent for summertime. Made with aloe vera, plus extra Vitamin E, it’s a great cream to use after being out in the sun all day.  Not only does it feel soothing, it smells soothing, and leaves my skin feeling restored after so much sun exposure. 
The Luscious Lemon was the original hand cream that started it all for Sarah. I enjoy the fresh citrus scent; it makes me feel relaxed. 
The hand creams come in various sizes and also make fabulous hostess gifts, especially for gluten free lovers like yourself, chefs and people who handle food. 
You can purchase Sarah’s products online, and there is free shipping on all orders over $50. 
Not only to protect yourself, but you deserve to find a moment in every day that’s just for you.

Celiac Awareness Month Day 23: Amorino Gelato // Locations in NYC, Boston, SF & more


Discover all of Italian gelato authenticity with Amorino: a rich and creamy taste, without coloring agents or artificial ingredients. A gelato which comes from a meticulous selection of ingredients.

Thus only organic eggs, good fresh whole milk and natural ingredients enter in the composition of Amorino’s gelati and sorbets .

Founded in 2002 by two Italian childhood friends, Amorino is the very essence of traditional Italian gelato. With numerous shops all over the world and a very recognizable ‘Amorino’ (Renaissance angel) as the logo, Amorino has already established itself as the go to for quality, consistency and flavor. What differentiates the brand from others is the iconic and original presentation of the gelato flower as well as the use of fresh and natural ingredients.

Amorino arrived in the United States in 2011 with the first store in the West Village, with a second location opening in Chelsea about a year ago, followed by Corte Madera (San Francisco), Las Vegas, Beverly Hills, Boston, and Chicago, with Houston and a second San Francisco location opening soon.  

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

When tasting the gelato at Amorino, you are immediately aware of the ingredients it contains. You can taste the realness and the freshness of the ingredients, and it is immediately evident that there are no artificial flavors or additives.  


For those of us with allergies or dietary restrictions there are great alternatives that include sorbets and egg, gluten or nut free gelato options. In fact, all but two flavors of gelato are gluten free. 

Gluten Free flavors include:

My favorite is the lactose free Organic Chocolate Sorbet. It has such an intense taste for a lactose-free flavor, a guilt-free delight I promise you will enjoy. 

l (2)

Not only does Amorino make delicious gelato but they also serve up gluten free macarons! These are not your ordinary macarons. You will find ice creams and sorbets sandwiched between two delicate almond shells, for irresistible ice cream macarons. Yum. 

What is also unique about Amorino is that they offer 5 cups sizes (and 4 cone sizes although they do not have a gluten free cone yet. With the choice of kid, Piccola, Classica, Grande, Gigante and Grandissima there is something for everyone. And, you can choose as many flavors as you’d like in each cup for no additional charge!

So, if you’re looking for truly authentic gelato then head over to one or Amorino‘s locations and let yourself indulge!

CELIAC AWARENESS MONTH DAY 22: BerryCart Subscription Box ($5 off your first box)

Are you looking to find coupons, rebates, offers and great deals on the best Organic, Gluten-Free, non-GMO, and Vegetarian foods?  BerryCart is the only healthy food subscription box with cashback rebates on everything in the box.

Berry Cart is a free app (for both iPhone and Android devices — download here) that gives you cash back on healthy grocery purchases… just buy a qualifying product shown in the app, submit a photo of your receipt, and receive cash back within 24 hours through paypal or various gift cards. 

BerryCart just launched a new monthly subscription box that will allow people to try 9-10 organic, non-GMO, gluten free and all-around healthy products that they feature on the app.

Every item in your BerryCart box will have a cash back offer available on the app. So if you try something you love, you’ll be able to save money when you decide to purchase it on your own. Boxes will contain at least 4 full-sized products, as well as samples for a total of 8-10 items. There will also be a bonus rebate for frequently bought items such as apples, grapes, etc. All items will be free of artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, and high-fructose corn syrup.

So let’s see what was in BerryCart’s first-ever subscription box:


The items are shipped in a plain Priority Mail box, which they say is to “pack more full-sized products and value inside the box than outside“. They also note that the pretty wrapping can be reused for another gift. It is super cute cellophane, so I may just do that!

The 2-sided, full color info card that comes with each box lists all of the products included along with the rebate amount available on the app. The bonus offer was $0.30 back on bananas, which I buy often so that’ll definitely get


Kutoa Cherry Cashew Snack Bar (FULL SIZE) – “Kutoa” is Swahili for “to give”. For each one of these bars purchased, the company feeds to a child in need. This bar is tasty and fresh, all natural, non-GMO, gluten free, vegan, soy free, and free of preservatives and added sugar.

Simple Squares Organic Snack Bar – Coconut (FULL SIZE) – Healthy on-the-go snack bars that are clean and simple; made with only 5 ingredients. I loved the coconut flavor in this paleo, organic, non-GMO, gluten free, soy free, dairy free nutrition bar.

Laughing Giraffe Organics Vanilla Snakaroons – Macaroons are my favorite and I would have loved if this was full-sized. These “yummy mounds of coconut goodness” are vegan, gluten free, and made with raw, organic, non-GMO ingredients. Healthy macaroons? yes please!

Ips Egg White Chips in White Cheddar – You might remember my post last month about these chips that have as much protein as an egg, with half the fat and less carbs than regular potato chips. They’re gluten free and contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips (FULL SIZE) – I love Beanfields chips. Beanfields chips are made from beans and rice, not corn. This delicious and healthy snack can replace those plain old corn chips, which is great for people who have a hard time with corn products. Beanfields are vegan, gluten free, corn free, and really addictive.

World Peas Green Pea Snack – Ranch –I’m not usually a ranch-flavored anything fan. I never eat ranch dressing or buy ranch flavored snacks, but I was surprised when I tried these and how un-ranch-like they tasted. This all natural vegan, gluten free pea snack is crunchy and only contains 105 calories per serving.

Pyure Organic Stevia Sweetener –Stevia is the only sugar alternative I use. I only use stevia – no splenda, equal or sweet n’ low here – because it is a natural sweetener with no artificial additives.

I Heart Keenwah Quinoa Clusters in Peanut Butter Cacao (FULL SIZE) – I love quinoa and chocolate so what’s better than adding them together? Sweet and crunchy, this snack is gluten free, vegan and soy free.

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts – I’ve tried many subscription snack boxes and almost all of them have included this product. Although I don’t buy hemp hearts, I do eat them every time I get them in a subscription box. Hemp is a great source of plant-based omegas and can easily be added to smoothies for a nutritional boost. There was also a 5o cent off coupon in the box!

 If you’d like to sign up for the Berry Cart box, you can save $5 on your first one when you use coupon code “GET5OFF” at checkout! — Don’t forget to download the app too!

Berry Cart subscriptions are $24.95/month (includes shipping).

Celiac Awareness Month Day 20: MorningPep Goji Berries Giveaway

We’ve made it to day 20 of Celiac Awareness Month and today I have another awesome review and giveaway for you guys! It is for Goji Berries!


The Goji Berry is a sundried superfruit. It has traditionally been used in Chinese medicines for thousands of years to strengthen the immune system and improve eyesight. They are a great source of minerals including Zinc, selenium, Iron, Copper, calcium, and phosphorous as well as vitamin B1, B2, B6, C, and E. Goji berries contain all of the essential amino acids, dietary fiber, and the highest concentration of protein versus any other fruit.

71+uTDRCDGL._SL1024_Until this month I had only tried chocolate covered goji berries, never sundried. I got these Goji Berries from MorningPep. They also carry almond flour, coconut flour, and xylitol, all of which I have tried and loved.

Goji berries have a sweet and tangy flavor. They are somewhat similar to raisins but very unique. You just have to try them for yourself to really get a sense of what they are like! MorningPep’s goji berries are certified organic, raw and sundried by the sun. There is no heating or added sugar.


I’ve been snacking on them right out of the bag. Goji Berries can also be added to trail mixes, granola, smoothies, oatmeal, cereal or tea. I’m sure there are a lot more ways you can use them but that’s all I’ve tried so far!

MorningPep Goji Berry Benefits:

You can buy all 3 sizes on Amazon; 8 oz for $12.99, 1 lb for $17.95, or 2 lb bag for $31.99, and all qualify for free Prime Shipping. Their other products are also available on Amazon.

I’d like to thank MorningPep for the samples and for being so generous in offering to host a giveaway for a free 2 lb. bag of Morning Pep’s Goji Berries! To enter, simply click on the rafflecopter below.

Gluten Free Awareness Month Day 19: Wellaby’s Gluten Free Crackers & Cheese Ups


Wellaby’s is a gluten-free snack and cracker brand imported from Greece. All of Wellaby’s products are made in a dedicated Gluten Free facility, thus eliminating the risk of cross-contamination. In addition, they conduct constant lab tests to ensure that Wellaby’s products always deliver the best quality and never become contaminated with unwanted ingredients. Wellaby’s products are also non-GMO, and free from trans fats, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, and preservatives.

Wellaby’s makes a variety of snacks including my favorite pita chips (which I reviewed last year on my blog.)


Chili Cheese Ups

I recently tried the newest flavor of Wellaby’s Cheese Ups line; Chili. These small triangle-shaped, slightly puffy, crackers are a tasty and fun snack to eat. Available in four flavors— Classice Cheese, Parmesan Cheese, Chili, and Smokehouse Cheese— they are made with 43% real cheese.

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 6.52.33 PM

The Chili Cheese Ups are just like the classic Cheese Ups; light and crunchy, but with a spicy chili twist. The flavor and spiciness is not too hot, I can handle it, but it gives it a nice little kick at the end. 


Wellaby’s crackers are available in 4 flavors— Classic Cheese, Feta Oregano Olive Oil, Parmesan Sundried Tomato, and Rosemary. Baked, not fried, with 65% less fat than normal potato chips, the crackers are perfect for pairing with dips and spreads, and they had no aftertaste like some other gluten-free products. Nor did they make my mouth dry as some products tend to do.

The Rosemary Crackers have aromas of Mediterranean herbs that you can taste and feel down to the very last bite.

Celiac Awareness Month Day 18: GoodBelly Tropical Orange Giveaway


Happy Monday and happy day 18 of Celiac Awareness Month! We’re more than halfway through the month and today I have another great giveaway for you! 

Good health starts with a GoodBelly.

What you eat and drink has so much to do with your overall health. And where does that health get started? In your gut, your digestive tract — your belly. This is not the first time you’ve heard me talk about digestion and gut health. It’s so important, especially for those of us who suffer from digestive disorders or issues.

Your intestines are home to about 100 trillion microorganisms, called intestinal microflora. (That’s 10x more than the number of human cells in your entire body.) Some of these are helpful and necessary for healthy digestive and immune systems, and some can be harmful to your health and wellness. When the microflora gets out of balance, aka when there are too many bad guys and not enough good bacteria, the results can be damaging and painful. From cramping, constipation and/or diarrhea, to bloating, flatulence, and feeling run-down or out of sorts, it’s just not fun.

I’ve been taking probiotics for years to help keep my good bacteria levels in check and help with other digestive issues I have. I’ve written about probiotics plenty of times, so today I’m not going to go into great detail.

The probiotics I take are in bill form, but today I am going to introduce you to GoodBelly, a delicious probiotic drink! GoodBelly probiotic drinks contain live and active cultures of the probiotic strain, Lactobacillus plantarum. This particular strain was chosen out of many, due to the 16 well-documented research trials that indicate its ability to promote healthy digestion.

GoodBelly makes two gluten free flavors: Tropical Orange and Cultured Probiotic Coconut Water. The gluten free flavors have green caps (the other flavors have black caps) and carry the gluten free label.

Every glass of GoodBelly has the probiotic digestive helpers your body needs. You’ll feel so good, you’ll make GoodBelly your daily go-to. Because when your belly smiles, the rest of you does too.


Tropical Orange is made with 100% of your daily Vitamin C and a delicious mix of orange, passion fruit and banana. It’s easy to replace your morning orange juice with this pear-passion fruit-orange combination. It is refreshing and tastes great. The consistency is a little thinner and chalkier than orange juice, due to the oat flour.


GoodBelly also makes a gluten free Cultured Probiotic Coconut Water that has power and hydrating electrolytes. This coconut water has a unique flavor, there’s something different about the taste – most likely from the grape juice and/or oat flour – that makes it unlike other coconut waters on the market.


Both drinks are also soy fee and vegan.


Coconut Water Nutritional Info

To find a retail location nearest you that carries GoodBelly Tropical Orange or Coconut Water, head over to the store finder. And remember to look for the green cap!

Now for the giveaway! One lucky reader will win (3) three free coupons to purchase the GoodBelly product of their choice! To enter, click on the rafflecopter below.
