Udi asked me to take the 14 day Gluten Free challenge. I decided to accept the gluten free challenge for 4 reasons. Learn more about my motivations for gluten free. I finished the challenge and I thought I would share with you some of my findings. If you are living a gluten free lifestyle go read the comments on my Should I go Gluten Free post and Gluten Free Challenge Day 1 post. These posts contain lots of helpful information from Fabulessly Frugal Gluten free readers.

My Gluten Free Food Diary-

Monday

Breakfast- Raw Bar, pear
Lunch- something normal, I can not remember what it was.
Dinner- Taco soup for dinner
Observations: When it came time for dinner my pre-gluten free menu called for pasta for dinner. Since I had not been to the store yet to buy gluten free pasta, pasta was not an option. I then thought about making chicken ole because it calls for corn tortillas, and I knew those were safe. I remembered seeing blog comments from readers that cream soups have gluten so I checked the label and sure enough they had gluten in them so that meal was out too. I decided on Taco soup and made enough to last a couple of days.

Tuesday

Breakfast– Bob’s Red Mill Crunchy Coconut Granola
Lunch- left over taco soup
Dinner- fish, roasted potatoes and carrots

Wednesday

Breakfast- dried pears, almonds, cheese,
Lunch- taco soup
Dinner- Texas Roadhouse steak, baked potato and vegetable
Observations: My uncle offered to take us to Texas Roadhouse. I thought this would be my TRUE test of self control. If you have ever been to Texas Roadhouse you know exactly what I am talking about. They bring a hot buttery dinner rolls with honey butter to your table as soon as you are seated. They are so yummy, and they keep bringing them until you can not eat them anymore. My family loves them so the yummy rolls were plentiful on our table. I am proud to say I did not eat any of them.

Thursday

Breakfast- fresh pear
Lunch- almonds, dried pear, cheese
Dinner- meatballs with beans, potatoes and cheese
Observations: I was starting to realize that I was eating lots of potatoes.

Friday

Breakfast- dried pear, Raw Bar
Lunch– Idaho Fry Company – Cheeseburger on a gluten free bun, fries with gluten free dipping sauces.
Dinner– steak, salad, fries, vegetables
Observations: I went to a business meeting lunch at Idaho Fry Company and I was all ready to eat my burger all wrapped up in lettuce when I discovered that they had gluten free buns. I thought that was really cool. They even had sauces that were marked as gluten free. I think it is fantastic that restaurants are becoming more considerate of their gluten free customers.

Saturday

Breakfast- pear
Lunch- hot dog (no bun)
Snack – movie popcorn, Raw Bar, pear fruit leather, pistachios
Dinner- Pork, coleslaw
Observations: I spent the weekend at my in-laws and it was really hard to eat when someone not eating gluten free is cooking. At breakfast my father in-law made waffles and I had  to pass on them and go for a pear. Lunch was a weenie roast so I had to eat mine with our a bun. Luckily I brought some of my own snacks to snack on through out the weekend. Dinner was gluten free so I was happy.

Sunday

Breakfast- corn tortilla with egg and bacon
Lunch/Dinner - red cabbage, pork roast, potato dumplings, corn 
Snacks-
 pistachios, pear fruit leather, granola bar, cheese sticks
Observations: By this time I had made the family aware of my gluten free experiment and my father in-law was nice enough to make me my own breakfast. I was sad to miss out on biscuits and gravy, but I enjoyed my breakfast burrito. We had a big late lunch before traveling for 5 hours back home. 

Monday

Breakfast- Bob’s Red Mill Mighty Tasty gluten-free hot cereal
Lunch- meatballs with beans, potatoes and cheese (left overs)
Dinner- spaghetti squash, corn on the cob, scrambled eggs with cheese
Dessert- ice cream
Observations: I was starting to feel the need to go use my Udi’s coupons. I needed some quick foods so I could eat gluten free when I do not have much time.

Tuesday

BreakfastRaw Bar
LunchRaw Bar
Dinner- Teriyaki chicken and rice
Dessert-  Udi’s Brownies bites
Observations:  I finally made it to the store to get some Udi products. I got some chocolate muffins (yum), bagels and pizza crust.

Wednesday

Breakfast- Udi’s chocolate muffin
Lunch
- Left over Teriyaki Chicken and rice
Snack- banana
Dinner- Garlic Ranch Chicken, potatoes, carrots, spaghetti squash
Observations: I actually liked the Udi’s chocolate muffin. I was a little surprised that I did.

Thursday

Breakfast- Bob’s Red Mill Mighty Tasty gluten-free hot cereal
Lunch-  Teriyaki Chicken and rice (left overs)
Dinner- Pizza on Udi’s gluten free crust
Observations: I think that the best way to have convenient meals is to cook extra for dinner and eat left overs.

Friday

Breakfast- Udi’s chocolate muffin
Lunch– Peanut butter and jelly on Udi’s Gluten free bread
Dinner Garlic Ranch Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken and rice left overs
Dessert – Udi’s Brownies

Saturday

Breakfast- eggs and cheese on Udi’s Gluten free Bagel
Lunch- Peanut butter and jelly on Udi’s Gluten free bread
Snack - Caramel Nachos
Dinner- Burrito on a corn tortilla beans and rice, corn chips and salsa
Observations: I was able to eat some of my old routine meals by using Udi’s Gluten Free Breads.

Sunday

Breakfast- yogurt and Bob’s Red Mill Crunchy Coconut Granola
Lunch/Dinner - Burrito on a corn tortilla beans and rice, corn chips and salsa
Snacks-
 dried apples

More Conclusions:

How I feel about my gluten free journey- Week one was not too bad. I just ate normal things that are naturally gluten free. By week 2 I was staring to run out of new ideas for recipes with out going to buy bean or rice flour. I am thrilled to report that I have not had a headache since I have been eating gluten free. Sometimes I get headaches daily.  I even lost a few pounds.  But I have decided that eating gluten free is a lifestyle for those who have celiac disease or who are gluten intolerant. I do not think eating gluten free is a fad diet or a weight loss program. I am really proud of myself for sticking through this challenge even though I could have had Texas Roadhouse rolls and biscuits and gravy.

    My whole family is Gluten Free and our Absolute favorite thing is the Gluten Free shortbread cookies… smells so great filling the house with warmth and reminding us of the season <3

  4. Lynne Dewey says:

    I eat gluten free

  5. My husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease back in 2008. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and have severe gluten sensitivity. Our favorite gluten free thing to eat is a homemade GF Chile Verde Tortilla Soup that he makes! People LOVE it and never realize it’s GF!!!

  6. jill nelson says:

    My husband and I love the Udi’s gluten free muffins. I discovered them when I was very ill and we thought I had celiac disease. I still try to avoid gluten as much as I can as I am trying to have a healthier lifestyle due to health issues.

  7. My daughter (21 months) is gluten free because she has an allergy to wheat (along with many others). Our favorite gluten free is Udis Chia/Millet Bread. It looked gross to me at first but it actually is the best tasting bread I believe and has a better texture.

  8. I eat gluten free and enjoy gluten free pizza!

  9. Cathy Polk says:

    My daughters, 15 and 8, and myself have to eat gluten-free, and it can be a challenge!

  10. My whole family is GF. Udi Snickerdoodles are amazing!

  11. Heather Arsen says:

    I am the gluten free person in my household. My current favorite thing to eat is Annie’s GF Bean & Cheese frozen burrito. Addicted to those right now. I’d love to try the Udi’s Chocolate Chip cookies if I lucked into a coupon. They look scrumptious!

  12. My son is gf but we all love gf chocolate cake!

  13. My mom and I are both G Free!

  14. I love everything Udi’s Especially the Pizza crust and bread yummy!! It started out first just being me and two of my seven children but over the last 3 months I have made the switch nearly 100% over for all 9 of us and I myself feel sooooo much better :)

  15. Marisa Corrigan says:

    My 3 kids and myself are gluten free due to intolerance. My kids favorite GF food is quinoa pasta with parmesian cheese and mine is gluten free chocolate salted caramel cupcakes.

  16. No one in my family is eating gluten free, so I will have to be the first to introduce the idea :D

  17. My 12 year old son was just diagnosed with celiac disease, the rest of the family have not been tested yet. His favorite is probably snickerdoodles. We have only just started so are just trying out new foods!

  18. Melissa Carpenter says:

    We love Udi’s bread toasted as well as brown rice pasta. I try to eat gluten free because it is simply healthier, but it is hard to do consistently because most things are too expensive. I can tell a difference in my energy level, skin, and hair.

  19. Rosemarie E says:

    Many of my friends’ children, like my son, have Autism and eat a GF or GFCF diet. Most of the desserts are the yummiest!

  20. Debbie Delpriore says:

    My whole family eats GF except my husband . He eats what I eat because I’m the cook!
    I love Udi’s blueberry muffins

  21. Stephanie says:

    My whole family of four eats gluten free and this would be a perfect way to try new products from this company! We are all allergic to gluten but my husband and daughter but it helps them both to avoid it because it makes their Restless Leg Syndrom better. Thank you for the giveaway! :-)

  22. I eat gluten free and would LOVE to win this. I am a BIG BIG Udi’s fan. Love their sandwich breads. I also love Bob’s Red Mill pizza crust mix. I typically make two crusts but only par-cook the second one. Freeze it to use like you would use a ready made crust later.

  23. Lauren H. says:

    I don’t have anyone in my family that is gluten free, but one of my very close friends is. Every Thursday a group of 10 girlfriends meet for our weekly girls night. We have all kind of noticed that we tend to lean toward the gluten free meals for her so she has something to eat when we get together.

  24. My fiance and I are now eating gluten (and dairy free! eek!) and we really love chili- it’s easy, lasts all week in the fridge and we love crumbling tortilla chips on top!

  25. Gluten free just to feel better

  26. cherika ross says:

    I am the person who eats gluten free. I am new to this so I don’t have a favorite food yet.

  27. Shelly Rodriguez says:

    I myself have never eaten Gluten free. I was entering to win for my neighbor. She is the Mother of 4 children that all have chronic gastrointestinal disorders that require gluten free diets. I know how expensive it is for her family to supply these special dieits for her children on top of all the medical expensives.. I just thought it would be nice for her family to be able to pick up a few items for free.

  28. Roxi Bugher says:

    I am gluten free because of intolerance and my favorite food is Barbara’s pb cereal soooo good! :)

  29. My son has autism and the gluten free diet helps him a lot! He seems more like himself when he is gluten free. I also have removed gluten from my diet and am loving the way I feel! My son’s favorite GF meal is homemade chicken nuggets with GF breadcrumbs with roasted potatoes :)

  30. Brittany W. says:

    Both my kids are gluten free! My 4 year old Son was diagnosed with Celiac over the Summer and my two year old Daughter exhibits signs, so we have made them both gluten free. Yay, for gluten free coupons!!

  31. My friend’s five year old daughter has celiac. Her challenge has been to find nice lunchbox-friendly things for her meals. She loves GF cookies, gummy fruit snacks, and gluten free pizza for dinner. Her mom made her GF cupcakes for her daughter’s recent birthday. She is a single mama with need of any help she can get. I am happy to be her spokesperson and would love to gift her a gift cert for Udi’s stuff! They can use all the help they can get.

  32. Melissa Elstner says:

    My daughter and husband eat gluten-free, and they just pretty much like anything sweet, and they like gluten-free pizza. We make the pizzas w/ Udi’s pre-made pizza crusts. :)

    • Natalie S says:

      I haven’t seen any of the gluten free pizzas or mixes at the store I don’t think. Will have to do some searches for that. I have some pre-packaged mixes but not for pizza yet!!! thanks for your post! Gives me incentive to try that!

  33. Amy Edgar says:

    My best friend and her entire family is gluten free. When they come over to my house once a week for Bible study, our entire family eats gluten free. It is a challenge to learn a whole new way to eat! Our favorite things to eat are fresh fruit because it is easy and healthy, safe for everyone and everyone loves it.

  34. Michelle AP says:

    I am gluten free. I mainly eat real food…veggies, fruit, and meat. I make meals from scratch and rarely have processed foods. I occasionlly have gluten free bread and pasta.
    BTW headaches can be a symptom of gluten intolerance, since they were better while GF and if your headaches return as you go back to gluten you may be intolerant. Worth concideration anyway:)

  35. I love Udi’s bread and bagels!

  36. We’ve just had to start going Gluten free after months of struggling with issues. We are still in the learning process, but we love potatoes and gluten free pizza crust!

  37. My son is GF. He loves the udi bread for school lunches. I usually buy it when we don’t have our local farmers market, in which case I buy fresh GF bread.

  38. Jenn Scott says:

    My neice has Celiac Disease and her fav thing to eat are cheese quesadillas on corn tortillas. =) Pretty easy!!

  39. I’m new to eating gluten free so I’m still trying out products and recipes.

  40. My daughter has Celiac and is gluten free. Her favorite food I buy for her is the Udis’ muffins, so I’d love to win a coupon for free product!

  41. My grandsons eat gluten free, egg free, dairy free, corn free, soy free, peanut free. Their favorite thing is pancakes – gluten free of course and made using bananas.

  42. My best friend Abby whom I do menu planning and guinea pig-ing for her (Otherwise all she’d eat is lentils and eggs! lol)

  43. Sara Larrabee says:

    My whole family JUST went gluten-free last week finding out that my daughter (at least — maybe to some degree all of us) has gluten sensitivity [her gluten intolerance and celiac tests still haven't come back].

    So far our favorite recipe was lemon rosemary chicken with brown and wild rice pilaf and balsamic pears.
    I signed up for a three-month recipe (dinners) plan on fresh20.com to help with meal ideas.

  44. My son eats gluten free and he loves red mill pizza best!

  45. My whole family eats gluten free. We love Udis Chocolate muffins!

  46. Christy V. says:

    I am the person in my family that is allergic to gluten. I am a HUGE fan of Udi’s. Occasionally I get to treat myself to their blueberry muffins. Yummy!

  47. christine says:

    I eat gluten free along with one of my daughters. The thing I love most is Sunflour Mills Chocolate cake and other flour mixes. I also love the brown rice taco shells. I also do not eat dairy, corn, soy,or peanuts. So I love these.

  48. Natalie S says:

    I am the gluten free member of the family! I have been since this spring when I was sick. If I accidentally get any wheat/gluten, I’m sick. I’m surprised by the number of people that say, oh you are choosing to eat gluten free. NO, I’M NOT. It isn’t a choice I would make. I would like nothing better then a grilled cheese wonderbread sandwhich (as simple as that is!!!). So, eating gluten free is a 6 month lifestyle. My neice who is in her late 30′s has had celiac since birth. I’ve seen what she can eat so many years ago, and can tell I am so fortunate now to have this when there are so many more choices and options.

    MY FAVORITE — pizza from Dominos. Have tried two other gluten free pizzas (one got sick from, another wasn’t as good as Dominos). That is a treat I hadn’t eaten in awhile until I found out they had those!!!! Another favorite is crackers. Smoreables is a great cracker for smores but it is also a treat — just a cracker and butter…mnnnnn. I am thankful for Udi’s white sandwhich bread. I can still have toast and jam for breakfast (or a grilled cheese). I’m thinking I’m going to try to make dressing for Thanksgiving with some. I will miss that if I don’t try it!

    Interesting to hear you talk about a gluten free bun…would love to try that!

  49. My 4yr old son has been gluten free, because of Celiac disease since 18 months old or so. We recently realized me 11yr old son has a sensitivity to gluten as well. One of their favorites is Udi’s GF Double Chocolate Muffins!

  50. Candice Wheeler says:

    My husband and I are both gluten intolerant and have to eat gluten free (and dairy free). We both love making gluten free/dairy free pizzas with Udi’s gluten free pizza crust and we also love Udi’s hamburger buns.
    Also, my nephew has recently been diagnosed with Celiac’s disease – I don’t know quite yet what his favorite meals are.

  51. I am the g-free queen at our home. Favorite g- free item right mow is sweet potato biscuits. Yum! Thank you for contest. G-free can be pricey.

  52. My 5 year old daughter is Gluten Intolerant. So far her favorite is pancakes made with Pamela’s baking and pancake mix. It’s very versitile and can be used in many different recipes calling for all purpose GF flour.

  53. My Mom has been gluten free for several years now since being diagnosed with Celiac disease. She loves everything that Udi’s makes, especially their loaves of bread.

  54. Sheilah Miller says:

    We have 7 in our family and we are all eating gluten free because most of us are intolerant and I refuse to cook separate meals :) One of our favorite product is glutinous pretzels.

  55. I have Celiac Disease and my husband is gluten intolerant. We both enjoy Udi’s Bagels and also their Blueberry Muffins are fantastic! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  56. Aleta ramberg says:

    both my husband and I are gluten free :) our favorite Udis stuff is the cinnamon raisin bread :) we love being gf. :)

  57. I am not gluten-free yet but I am wanting to challenge myself as well. I love quinoa so I would cook with that quite a bit. I have a lot of pain throughout my body and I heard that giving up gluten might help.

  58. Shana Stacey says:

    I am the one who tries to eat GF. I love gluten free chocolate salted caramel cupcakes.

  59. I was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance about 2 months ago. I have fallen in love with all of the GF Chex cereals. I miss bread so much though so I’d love to win one of these coupons!

  60. Stefanie B says:

    Right now I don’t have a favorite Gluten Free food item. I am new to this world of foods. I just found out that I need to stay away from Gluten products, due to digestive problems… so, I am just in the very beginning stages of it all and trying not to get frustrated…and will also be introducing my family to it all. Could really use some good tasting items to start with.

  61. Belinda D. says:

    I am the one in my family who eats gluten free. My favorite food that makes me forget I am gluten free is GF pizza!

  62. I have been having horrible unknown allergic reactions and difficulity with my esophagus (trouble swallowing) for over a yr…they suspect food intolerance so i am dairy free now and next week on to gluten free… wish me luck <3

  63. My sis and her hubby eat gluten free, and when they come over we eat flourless peanut butter cookies! 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup splenda or sugar, and one egg. Mix together and bake. Couldn’t be easier! Very tasty, especially just out of the oven!

  64. i eat gluten free. i love all of the breads

  65. My two sons have life threatening food allergies to peanut, milk and egg. That makes meals a challenge and restaurants no always even a option. My next baby boy was diagnosed with food allergies within 3 months of birth, so I had to go milk,egg, peanut and wheat/gluten free in order to continue breastfeeding him. He is 18 months now and while I can eat these foods again, he can not eat any of them. I would love some Udi’s coupons. The foods that we have to buy for the boys are more expensive and would love a few free items. He eats the bread, bagels, tortillas and pizza crusts. Thank you.

  66. I was just diagnosed with celiac disease. It has been quite a challenge adjusting to the new lifestyle change. I found a great gluten free banana bread recipe, however I am still new at this so cooking has been a challenge. :(

  67. I am gluten free because of celiac disease that was diagnosed 6 months ago. All of our family meals are gluten free. I love Pacific condensed cream soup so I can still make my son’s favorite meal, chicken and rice. But the foods that got me through the transition were Cinnamon Chex, Smoreables for camping, and Udi’s hamburger buns.

  68. My Mother In Law eats gluten free. She buys these funny looking crackers at Costco and swears they are super yummy.

  69. We are currently in limbo with my five year old son. He has been diagnosed with Juvenil RA and we are currently trying to rule out crohns disease. Our docter is having him tested for celiac disease. We are starting a family trial of GF eating in order to prepare ourselves for what is to come. I have heard good and bad things about GF diets. Crossing our fingers for everything to be okay.

  70. johnny b coupon says:

    wife (gluten intolerant), step daughter (celiac) – - my wife loves the new nature valley protein bars … and thank goodness for coupons to help pay for those. I have also noticed more coupons for gluten free products, which is fabuLESS.

  71. My 6 year old son is GF and we are trying along with him. He has Juvenile Arthritis and heard that GF is the way to go! We love Bob’s Red Mill Brownie Mix!

  72. I am gluten free and dairy free. I usually prepare two dishes for dinner- a smaller GF option for just me and something else for everyone else. Like if I make a pasta bake- a small one for me that is GF and normal size with regular wheat noodles for the rest of the family. Udi’s bagels are yummy and Chex cereal is awesome.

  73. I am the gluten free one in our house! I looooove Gluten Free cereals, like Chex!

  74. I just started eating gluten free due to being diagnosed with a skin condition that is caused by a gluten allergy. I am also slowly trying to get my family to eat gluten free as well. I love Larabars for quick on the go snacks. I love egg cupcakes as well.

  75. I am gfree and I love udi’s double chocolate muffins!

  76. My husband has wheat / gluten allergies but everyone at home eats gluten free. He also has allergies to dairy and tomato, so can’t eat most Italian food including pizza, spaghetti, lasagna, etc. I actually made gluten-free, dairy-free, and tomato-free pizza as well as lasagna for him so they are his favorites.

  77. Robin Dowell says:

    I eat gluten free, and i do have Celiac’s Disease. I love to make gluten free spaghetti for my family, because even though my husband and daughter dont HAVE to eat gluten free, for a change we can all eat the same thing! And everyone loves it. I also love black bean brownies, my four year old daughter LOVES them!!

  78. Marci Freeman says:

    I am the gluten-free eater in our house. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease when I was 2 years and no one knew what gluten-free eating was. It is definitely nice to have such a wide variety of products now available at every grocery store I go to!

  79. My Mom is gluten free and she loves toast.

  80. I have chosen to go gluten free for migraines and other health issues. So far after the first month, I have been doing graet. NO headaches as well and staying out of the hospital.

  81. Allyson Evers says:

    I’m new to gluten free products. It is crazy how many things have gluten. I love Amy’s rice Mac and cheese

  82. Jessie C. says:

    I’m new to gluten free and love gluten free pizza and cake mix.

  83. I eat Gluten Free and I love whole foods:)

  84. Having Celiac, I am the one in my house who eats gluten free. My favorite gluten free dish is risotto.

  85. Emily Young says:

    My husband is the gluten free person in our family. My favorite gluten free recipe I’ve tried is quinoa stew with chickpeas. Yum!

  86. Michelle Huegel says:

    My two younger sons, aged 1 and 2, are gluten free (among several other allergens). Their favorite things to eat are gluten-free muffins, pancakes, and breads that I bake for them!

  87. My husband is Gluten Free.. He has Celiac Sprue.. It kills him though considering he LOVES chicken and Dumplings. At the time being we are having a difficult time finding decent gluten free bread. However we are excited to find some great tasting Gluten free crackers that he can have with the homemade chili i make him. I am amazed on how much more expensive gluten free items are… So I try to get and use the coupons i receive to keep him healthy w/o costing us an arm and a leg.

  88. I am gluten free and my family loves it when we make stir fry with glass/bean thread noodles.

  89. I love Udi’s gluten free bagels. We are not gluten free, but we do eat less wheat than most families.

  90. My 8 y/o nephew and I are both gluten free (and dairy free). I have a gluten/dairy intolerance. My nephew has Tourette’s Syndrome. My sister is trying holistic treatments with him instead of just medicating him with prescription drugs. A gluten/dairy free diet seems to help. He loves Udi’s bread and eats lots of sandwiches in his school lunches. Me, I eat mostly naturally gluten-free foods, but I love wild rice or brown rice ricecakes. I am addicted to those dumb things and actually get cravings for them. We both love Udi’s choc chip muffins. They are more cupcake-like than muffins. When there is a family birthday,we frost them with dairy-free frosting and don’t ever feel left out.

  91. Jillian Lamoureux says:

    zuccini is our fav gluetin free item because it replaces chips and noodles really easy and is great with so many recipes.

  92. Both hubby and I eat GF for health reasons. We are addicted to Bob’s Red Mill chocolate chip cookies. We think they taste better than wheat flour cookies.

  93. My daughter has was diagnosed with stage 2 celaic disease in Feb. So her twin and I, who breathe gluten to survive, went on a gluten free diet to support my daughter. For us it was not a life change, only lasted a few days, but for my daughter it was a necessity. She would cry walking down the aisles for about a month after what she realized she could not eat. So I focused on the food she could. Fruity pebbles & cocoa pebbles breakfast bars were her life altering food :) We are now successful with meals and she LOVES Udi’s products! Finally got her school to offer gluten free products and I am trying to get them to purchase Udi’s products. At this point they won’t so I buy her bread and drop it off with the cafeteria lunch lady’s. They are amazing! :)

  94. Three of my four kids =). Our favorite is quinoa spaghetti noodles. Thanks!!!

  95. My daughter just started a gluten and dairy free diet about 10 days ago for health reasons.
    Today I made brownies from black beans, eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla and instant coffee. It was surprisingly good. Wish me lick, I am going to make a gluten/dairy free birthday cake tomorrow. My birthday is Friday.

  96. Jamie Martin says:

    I love eating quinoa; I live here alone.

  97. Cherylyn Murphy says:

    I am gluten free. I love Pamela’s chocolate chocolate chip cookies. I also enjoy eating Udi’s wheat bread. I was excited to find these products that I had not been able to eat for several years.

  98. My young daughter has Celiac Disease and follows a gluten free diet; her favorite gluten free food is Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread. Thanks for the giveaway!

  99. I have been eating gluten free for four years. My doctor’s have told me to stay away from it due to Hashimotos’ thyroid disease. I was later diagnosed with Lyme disease/CFIDs, which causes an impact to my immune system. Gluten free eating has allowed me to shed over 40 pounds in four years, but being sick has also impacted my appetite. I feel eating gluten free, has helped my allergic reactions lessen. I do like to eat a good sandwich with gluten free bread. I do like brownies for an occasional treat, but sugar feeds on Lyme, so I have to watch that too. Gluten free is hard in the beginning, but it gets easier as time goes by. You will be forced learn about other items that are more healthy, and not processed, or you will go hungry….LOL

  100. I just went gluten free this week after being diagnosed with celiac so at this point I’m eating nothing but chicken and rice until I go step by step to figure out what else I can eat that won’t make me sick. I’m quite grateful for all of the resources that are out there; I know it will make it easier to transition to a gluten-free diet.

  101. I eat gluten free and my fave would have to be rice pasta, I actually like it much better than regular and of course feel much better too. :)
