Since I couldn’t find my normal wraps I decided to try a new brand. This brand was definitely different.
I thought quick out of the box cakes, breads and anything baked was no longer in my future. Until I stumbled upon this greatness.
I accidentally found the Robin Hood Gluten Free Banana Bread by looking for something else entirely. But the box was right in front of me as I walked down the aisle.
Granola bars are one thing I was surprised to find out weren’t always gluten free. It made a lot of sense afterwords. I was always trying to figure out why I was still getting sick and then I read the ingredients.
I have had a love hate relationship with bread ever since I was inducted into the Gluten Free Club. I used to love bread, sandwiches, toast and just soft bread with butter.
Then bam! No more fluffy white bread or french bread with a nice crunch or even delectable sour dough. Bread has been hard to figure out.
Nothing is sadder then not being able to have cake on your birthday or cupcakes when you are having a bad week. Well I was having a bad week and needed a pick me up so decided to give this a try.
Logically oatmeal should be gluten free. But, in reality not all of it is. Oats and wheat fields are generally grown side by side. This can cause cross contamination issues and well no one wants that.
Candies have been one of the hardest things for me to replace. Especially gummy candies. I can’t seem to find all the ones I want. But I will get there.
On my last trip to Bulk Barn I found these gluten free beauties.
Quick canned meals were a part of most childhoods. Who doesn’t remember Zoodles or canned soup on those winter days. Well this wonderful club we are in doesn’t always like those quick meals.
No one can resist a nice piping hot pizza. At least that’s what I thought. As my membership to the gluten free club got deeper I started to smell gluten from feet away. Pizza no longer smelt like a paradise with melty cheese. It smelt more like pain and would make my stomach churn. But I wasn’t ready to give up.
My mom was born in Mexico, so I grew up with a lot of Mexican dishes. When I joined the Gluten Free Club, a lot of my favourite foods were taken from me. Enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos, burritos… the list goes on. But, I wasn’t giving up.
One of the main staples in my home used to be Kraft Dinner. I ate it normally, I mixed it in things to make a goulash. But then bam, I was hit with an invitation to the gluten free club and bye bye KD.
I was heartbroken when I realized that gluten was hidden in some of my favourite ice creams. I thought I was going to be stuck with vanilla for the rest of my life. Well I was wrong!
