Chocolate Chip Bars

I have a confession to make. It could be said in the land of gluten-free baked goods, I have only one vice, my chocolate chip bars. They are so good I could just eat them all day, and why not? The almond butter and quinoa are full of vitamins, enzymes, and protein. The coconut oil…

Unlike packaged puddings, mine is gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free, and you just can’t beat that fresh homemade taste. I like it hot or cold, depending on my mood, and the weather.

Almond muffin and potato salad

There was this adorable cafe where I used to live that always served a pumpkin muffin with their potato salad, or any other kind of salad for that matter. But I would feel guilty after eating there, not because of the gluten, as I was unaware of its effect on me at that time, but…
