Bella Gluten Free // Cup-to-Table in Minutes

While I do like to bake from scratch, let’s be honest, I don’t always have the time to do that. So when it comes to products that not only taste great but are easy to prepare then I am all about trying it. And with their line of Cup-to-Table products, Bella Gluten Free is definitely one of these brands I must try!

IMG_3559

Bella Gluten Free’s founder, Mary Capone, combines her gluten-free mastery with her love of the kitchen to create scrumptious gluten-free, allergen-free cuisine. Mary is a cookbook author, and nationally known instructor of gourmet gluten and allergen-free foods. As a celiac chef with celiac kids, Mary has designed mixes that not only have great taste and texture but include plenty of healthy ingredients as well. 

Bella Gluten Free, offers a selection of 100% natural, non-GMO, allergen-friendly baking mixes in an easy, and convenient Cup-to-Table packaging .

Products include:

Bella Gluten Free mixes combine taste, texture and nutrition all into one. They use the finest assortment of all-natural, non-GMO and organic ingredients. And because they take cross contamination seriously, all products are blended in small batches in a 100% gluten-free facility to guarantee freshness and purity. They are GFCO certified and a recipient of the non-GMO Verification Project. 

From the innovative and eye catching packaging, to the ready in minutes baking, I was excited to try Bella Gluten Free’s products. Using Whole grain flours and superior ingredients, Bella Gluten Free developed a range of sweet and savory allergen friendly baking mixes that allow you to make fresh baked products in your home in just minutes. (OMG, such a time saver!)  The mixes are easy to make and require only 2-3 ingredients, that I keep stocked in my fridge at all times I might add, and can be baked in less than 30 minutes. 

IMG_3668

Bella Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix was the first mix I made. It starts with a 100% allergen-free All Purpose Baking Mix, creating the perfect texture. Mixed with dextrose-free chocolate chips and organic coconut sugar, a subtle sweetener like brown sugar, with a hint of caramel, make for a chewy on the edges and soft in the middle cookie. The mix makes about 18 cookies and didn’t last long in our apartment. Within days Jeremy and I had eaten them all! Time to go to the gym I guess…

IMG_3566

The brownies were even better than the cookies! These chewy chocolate brownies are loaded with rich chocolate chips and cocao powder for delicious chocolately goodness. Whether you like them gooey (like me!) or classic cake-like you can have hot brownies in minutes. 

And tonight is Pizza Night! We are going to be making his (loaded with cheese) and her (dairy free, with tons of vegetables) pizzas! 

Here are a couple of tips that you may find useful for Bella Gluten Free Cups: 
 
Tip for your pizza: Use moistened fingertips to shape on sprayed parchment paper. I like crispy crust so I parbake for 7 minutes and then add my toppings, but you do not have to-it is delicious if you put it all together from the beginning!!
 
Tip for your biscuits and scones: freeze butter or butter substitute for 20 minutes or so and use a cheese grater to grate and disperse it throughout the mix before adding your wet ingredients.  Scones: use wet fingertips and form a circle with dough about 2 inches thick. Use a warm slightly wet knife to cut into 6-8 pie shape wedges, separate a little. They are not very sweet so if you plan on eating with jam or curd then great, if not add a bit of finishing sugar on top of each wedge. 
 
Tip for your multigrain rolls:  use ice cream scooper to get equal amounts and even baking (this is a great tip for the chocolate chip cookies too), place the scoops of bread dough into a sprayed muffin tin and let rise in warm place for 15 mins and then bake!  Also you can form a circle to make a Boule out of the dough and increase bake time to 25 minutes (or use thermometer to temp at around 190-200 degrees for done).

Senza Gluten Free / 100% Gluten Free Dining in Greenwich Village

In Italian, “senza” means without and at this restaurant, the only thing you’ll go without is the gluten!

IMG_3701

Senza Gluten is one of the only completely gluten-free Italian restaurants in New York City’s Greenwich Village offering an extensive menu that is not only delicious but safe for those intolerant to gluten. Diners will find anything from homemade pizza to gnocchi and parmigiana. Let’s not forget brunch. After listening to feedback from their customers, Senza just started offering weekend brunch. The menu includes everything from French toast and pancakes, to frittata, quiche, fresh breads and baked goods for days! 

Over the weekend I was invited to Senza Gluten to try their new brunch menu. Upon entering the restaurant I was greeted with a warm welcome, I felt like I was entering a friends home. The restaurant is on the smaller side, so I would recommend making a reservation, especially for dinner. 

While Chef Jemiko L Solo is still finalizing the brunch menu (it will be available online in the coming weeks), it features everything you usually can’t get when you go out to brunch at an ordinary restaurants. Pancakes, French toast and egg dishes are just the beginning. Chef Solo makes quiche, scones, muffins, and breads fresh daily.  

IMG_3706

I ordered the gluten free French toast, and let me tell you, it was DELICIOUS! Senna uses Everybody Eats‘ (a gluten free, nut free bakery in Brooklyn) bread for their French toast. The toast was thick and fluffy and Jeremy said you would never know that it was gluten free. If it passes the Jeremy test, then you know it’s gotta be good.

IMG_3703

Jeremy ordered a goat cheese and baby spinach omelette with the best house roasted potatoes with garlic, EVOO and rosemary. We eat a lot of breakfast potatoes and these have officially become our #1 favorite in NYC. The omelette is served with grilled bread, that is not only gluten free but also vegan, so perfect for anyone who doesn’t eat dairy either! 

So, why did Chef Solo decide to open a gluten free restaurant? I asked the same question!  Chef  Solo has over  twenty-five years of experience in the kitchens. He personally does not have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity but has many friends around him that are gluten-intolerant and have other food allergies. Chef Jemiko L Solo says “I made a promise to all of my friends that one day I would do something to make it safer for them to eat out. This is the reason why I decided to open a 100% gluten-free restaurant called Senza Gluten. Regarding Italy, well, who doesn’t love Italian food?”. Jemiko adds that it is “often hard to find traditional Italian pastas, pastries, baked goods and more” that are completely gluten free. Senza Gluten is his way to prove that “no one should have to miss out on flavor, texture, or delicious options” because of an intolerance to gluten. I wish I had a friend like that! 

IMG_3707

And if you have other allergies or dietary restrictions, Senza has you covered! Sense’s brunch menu features vegan breads and plenty of dairy free options. The main menu has even more. Just call ahead and let the Chef know you are coming in and what you like and what you can not eat. He will make sure to make you something delicious and safe. 

If you haven’t tried Senza Gluten yet, I don’t know what you are waiting for! Not only is the food good – whether you are gluten free or not, you will enjoy it – but, the Chef really cares about his customers. He listed when they asked for brunch. He listed when they asked for other dishes, and even made them staples on the menu. He listens to what people want and need and makes it happen. Jeremy and I will be back soon for dinner!

#GFsquad Valentine’s Day with Udi’s (& Instagram Contest)

Udis_GFsquad-Jessica-Profile

Living gluten free isn’t always easy, and takes the support of friends and family. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I want to dedicated today’s post to giving an extra special thank you to Jeremy who is there for me every step of my gluten free way. 

Udis_GFsquad-Jessica_Animation-A04

Udi’s just launched a campaign to help you thank your gluten free person. So today I want to thank my fiancé, Jeremy, for all the little things he does for me throughout the year. Jeremy is my GF person. On our first date he picked a restaurant with a gluten free menu. When we were talking before the date, I mentioned it briefly but did not go into detail. I figured, if he picked a restaurant that was not gluten free friendly at least there would be grilled chicken or salmon or salad I could eat. Well he remembered that conversation and spent time researching restaurants and found one with lots of options, which wasn’t many back in Boston in 2010. Ever since, and for the next five and a half years later, whenever we go out to dinner, and when we order take out, he always orders a GF dish so we can share or so I can try a bite.

Since we started living together in 2013, Jeremy’s had to adapt to living with someone with a gluten free lifestyle, and he was a champ! It’s one thing to order a GF meal once or twice a month when we went out to dinner, but it’s a whole other thing to be around a GF person 24/7. Jeremy always tries the meals I make and the GF products I buy (or receive for my blog). Most of the time he enjoys them (duh), and again is such a champ for trying new things with me. When he doesn’t like something he doesn’t really complain either. He either eats it or makes himself something else without complaining.  He never EVER complains about having to eat GF with me.

Udis_GFsquad-Jessica_A03

Jeremy has become an expert at reading labels and knowing what to buy and what not to buy. He is an advocate for me at family get togethers, and other events. He is so great at being able to ask/tell others (i.e. when we go to dinner parties, weddings, events) what I can and can not eat. So thank you Jeremy for being my #GFsquad. <3 

Udi’s provided me with some of their delicious gluten free products so I could make Jeremy a delicious gluten free meal to say thank you for being my #GFsquad.

Is there someone in your life that you’d like to thank? Well, there’s no better time than Valentine’s Day to tell someone how much they mean to you! Udi’s is hosting an Instagram contest to encourage users to share their stories about their gluten-free supporters, using the hashtag #GFsquad. The contest will run from February 1 to February 19, with finalists announced on Valentine’s Day.

How It Works:

Riceworks Review and Giveaway // Crab and Avocado Salad Recipe

logo (1)Jeremy and I LOVE chips. Every Sunday we open a bag of tortilla chips, crunchy crackers, potato chips, etc. and site down to watch the Patriots. While I am sad they won’t be playing this Sunday, we will still be watching the Superbowl and indulging in delicious Riceworks as we watch the Broncos try to beat the Panthers. 

This Sunday we will be eating Riceworks rice crips, aka a delicious tortilla chip alternative. Riceworks offer a gluten free better-for-you rice chip experience! Riceworks products are a gluten free indulgence with no artificial flavors or preservatives and taste better than most tortilla chips we’ve ever tried. Riceworks are made with whole grains and no gluten, soy or high-fructose corn syrup, and they have plenty of milk-free flavor options too. 

IMG_3487

Jeremy and I were so impressed with each mouthwatering flavor. I usually do not like sweet chili flavored – or really any chips with added flavoring – but these were deliciou. Each bag we opened, we were so impressed with the flavor – we could taste the real ingredients, no funny aftertaste or powedery mess left on our hand from the added coloring or flavoring. And the chips were not too salty, thank goodness! 

Riceworks has several creative, mouthwatering flavors to tantalize your tastebuds, including: 

My favorite flavor is the Sea Salt & Black Sesame. The black sesame gives the riceworks a lightly nutty flavor while the wild rice adds extra hearty crunch and texture. Combined, they produce a earthy taste that is delicious on its own or paired with mild dips or spreads. 

FullSizeRender

Riceworks pair well with all sort of yummy ingredients and are even a great substitute in recipes where other products like breadcrumbs and chips are normally used. They have great crunch and great flavor! So you can easily eat Riceworks with your favorite salsa or guacamole recipe or add them in to dips (and other recipes) for added crunch.

Trans-Ocean Crab Classic // Gluten Free Imitation Crab & More!

pix_products

Until last week, I had no idea that there was a gluten free imitation crab product that existed. I haven’t had a California roll in over 6 years, and I was beyond thrilled when I learned that Trans-Ocean makes gluten free imitation crab. So now I can make my own California rolls at home!  

Trans-Ocean has been making surimi seafood (imitation crab meat) in Bellingham, WA since 1985. For most of those years, they have used wheat-containing ingredients in many products. But a few years ago, they became aware that some people were buying only their Crab Classic Chunk Style and Lobster Classic products because they were made without wheat ingredients and thus, satisfied their gluten-free diet needs. After speaking with people who suffer from celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, they made a change to their wheat-containing products. 

Effective Fall 2014, their production plant became a dedicated, 100% gluten-free facility and all of their products are now gluten-free! You’ll find a gluten-free banner on all packaging. Be assured, products have the same delicious flavor and high quality that has made them America’s #1 brand of surimi seafood.

Trans-Ocean offers a variety of gluten free imitation crab and seafood products:

Crab Avocado Cucumber Stack

Crab Classic is made from a mix of wild and sustainable Alaska Pollock, certified by the Marine Stewardship Council as a responsibly harvested seafood, and king crab meat. Fully cooked and ready-to-eat, Crab Classic is perfect for quick and easy salads, appetizers, hot dishes and more. After trying a few of the different styles of Crab Classic, I have to say that I am a fan!  The crab tasted good, not too salty and not fake at all. I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen and I’ve made Jeremy eat quite a few crab dishes this week! One of my favorites is below!

  3. Press 1/4 cup of the cucumbers in the bottom of the cutter using the back of a spoon.
  4. Next, stack the layer of avocado on top of the cucumbers.
  5. Lastly add the Crab Classic to the top layer.
  6. Top with green part of the scallions.
  7. Gently lift the cutters up and away from the plate to reveal the tower.

We also tried the shrimp and made it with pasta and marinara sauce. Simple, yet delicious!

Trans-Ocean, is a strong supporter of sustainable fisheries management. As such, they have sought certification for the Trans-Ocean brand seafood products from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). Trans-Ocean has been at the forefront of promoting MSC as a mark of quality and environmental responsibility to the consumer market. In addition to supporting the long-term sustainability of the ocean’s resources, Trans-Ocean also extends great effort to minimize the environmental impacts of their processing operation.

Modern Oats offer healthy and convenient gluten free oats on the go

logo

When I’m on the go, or don’t have enough time in the morning to eat a proper, sit-down breakfast, it can be very difficult to find food that is nutritious, substantial, and and actually good.  Many convenient, on the go, breakfast foods are high in sugar and low in protein, fiber and other vitamins and minerals that keep you going throughout the day.

Whether you are gluten free or not, I think you are going to love today’s post featuring Modern Oats. Not only are they redefining boring oatmeal, but Modern Oats provides a healthy and delicious meal in just 3 minutes! Not only are they healthy and convenient but I can not get over how good they taste! I was skeptical at first because I don’t oatmeal with add-ins, it usually taste fake and too sugary. But Modern Oats is anything but fake. They only use real ingredients. Of all the flavors I tried there is not one I did not like.

IMG_3468 

Modern Oats works with small farm, and uses gluten free & Non-GMO Verified, perfect whole rolled oats. Then they add ingredients like delicious blends of fruits (such as mangos, apples, goji berries, and Saskatoon berries), nuts (such as pine nuts, walnuts, and coconut), and seeds (such as flax, sunflower, and chia).

Modern Oats offers 10 Gourmet flavors:

  1. Goji Blueberry
  2. Apple Walnut
  3. Chocolate Cherry
  4. Mango Blackberry
  5. Nut & Seeds
  6. 5 Berry
  7. No Sugar Added 5 Berry
  8. Coconut Almond
  9. Vermont Maple
  10. Just Oats 

So far I’ve tried 4 flavors – Goji Berry, 5 Berry, Mango Blueberry, and Nut & Seeds – and I’ve loved all 4! I usually eat plain oatmeal but this is so much better with such great flavor and real, fresh ingredients I can taste.

IMG_3492

Each flavor is high in protein (8 grams or more per serving) and and fiber (6 grams of more per serving). 

image_5595_false_500_250_Nutritional_Label

All of Modern Oats’ products are certified gluten free, sodium-free and cholesterol-free, and are produced in 100% gluten-free facilities as to ensure no cross-contamination. Better yet, they use whole grain rolled oats, which adds a great solid texture with each bite. Modern Oats tastes real, not like many store-bought oats that are processed and made with artificial flavors and added sugars. All Modern Oats’ ingredients are 100% fully-ripened, freshly frozen fruit, and healthy nuts that give each of their products a delicious flavor!

Modern Oats is currently sold through gourmet retailers nationwide. To find a retailer near to you please use the online store locator. Modern Oats can also be purchased via web through their website or via Amazon

Modern Oats’ convenient recyclable portable oatmeal cups are the ideal healthy meal for your on the go lifestyle. Keep one at your desk, or in your bag, and you can enjoy is anywhere, any time!

While Modern Oats represents gourmet oats at their finest, they don’t take a trained chef to make. Just add hot water, wait three minutes, stir and enjoy! It’s really that easy!
