Do You Have Childlike Taste?

I found  a great article discussing the way we, as Americans, are eating and the retail establishments that are supporting our childish ways.  (Think cupcakes!)  Really interesting reading – check it out here.



Zuma Organics

I’ve ordered a fabulous spice blend from Zuma Organics and, as a bonus, found out that they have a great website with yummy recipes!   I can tell you from experience that the Bag O’Chicken Lemon Love is a really easy, delicious dinner.  Click here for Five Easy Back to School Dinners.

Gluten Free Oats at Trader Joe’s!


Great news!  Trader Joe’s now has gluten free oats on the shelves!  In my store, they are in the “New Arrival” section, so check them out.

New Cookbooks

I am so happy to report that two of my favorite authors/resources have new cookbooks available.  Check out Quick and Easy Meals from Mark Sisson (the Primal Blueprint guru) and you can pre-order Gluten-Free Cupcakes by Elana Amsterdam (the almond flour expert).  New recipes – I can’t wait!

Subway is Testing Gluten-Free Buns?!?

Believe it!  I never thought I’d see the day when we could buy a gluten-free anything at a fast food restaurant.  For more information, click here.  Let’s cross our fingers that the initial testing goes well.  I’m not a fan of fast food, but this would give millions of people an option of eating something other than lettuce when they go out.  How great would it be, especially for kids, to go out with their friends and not feel “different” and be able to get a sandwich like everyone else?!

Udi’s Products at Trader Joe’s!

Great news for all you fans of Udi’s GF bread products!  Our local Trader Joe’s is carrying two kinds of Udi’s bread plus the bagels (yummy!) and they are charging less than I’ve seen at other places.  I have no idea if this is nationwide or just a local situation, but for you GF folks in Charlotte, make sure you keep an eye out for Udi’s in the bread department!

Friends of Jack Be Natural

Isn’t it amazing how things go full circle, but just get a bit better each time around?  Remember when no one thought to use anything but cloth diapers?  Well, now they are back but so much better!  Anyone with a baby or knows someone who’s expecting, do yourself a favor and check out a great website, (I know, how cute is that name?!?)  You’ll find all kinds of great information on the many options in environmentally friendly diapers, and great customer service, too.  Our landfills will thank you!

No Excuse Healthy Meal Ideas

Look what I found at Trader Joe’s!

No more excuses for making a healthy meal!  These are great assortments of veggies that are already prepped for you and ready to go.  You can use them in stir-frys, soups, sautes, salad, all kinds of things.  Find them in the refrigerated veggie section and make something heathy (and easy!) today.

I just saw a notice for Organicfest – Celebrate Everything Organic – which will be held on September 11th at Pack Square in Asheville.  Click here for more info.  Sounds like fun!
