#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.

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.

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 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!

The Celiac Disease Genomic, Environmental, Microbiome and Metabolomic (CDGEMM) Study for infants 0-6 months

cdgemm-signature-graphic-no-margin

I was recently contacted by the Center for Celiac Research at Mass General Hospital for Children about their recently launched research study known as the Celiac Disease Genomic, Environmental, Microbiome and Metabolomic (CDGEMM) Study.  The study enrolls newborn children (aged 0-6 months) who have a first degree relative diagnosed with celiac disease and is aimed at understanding the genetic, microbial and environmental processes that trigger the onset of celiac disease. 

This research study could revolutionize the way celiac disease is identified and diagnosed, with prevention of disease onset as the ultimate goal. Children can participate from all over the country, since samples collected for study purposes can be collected at the child’s pediatrician and sent through the mail. If you are a parent or sibling of an infant under the age of 6 months, or know someone who is, please read the following info! 

The Celiac Disease Genomic, Environmental, Microbiome and Metabolomic (CDGEMM) Study affectionately refers to its participants as “gems” and is aimed at identifying how certain factors contribute to the development of celiac disease (CD). The CDGEMM team considers a child’s genetic makeup, environmental conditions, gut microbiome (bacteria that normally live in the intestine) and more with the goal of identifying how these factors contribute to disease development; doing so may allow researchers to predict who will develop celiac disease before it happens. This prospective, observational, multi-center study is being conducted in the United States and Italy by Dr. Alessio Fasano and his team at the Center for Celiac Research at Mass General Hospital for Children (MGHfC) in collaboration with the Celiac Program at Harvard Medical School. Infants under 6 months of age who have a first-degree relative (mother, father or sibling) diagnosed with celiac disease are eligible to participate.

Enrolled children participate in the study until they reach five years of age. During this time, participants are closely monitored for signs of CD using blood antibody testing. Blood samples are also used to test for the genes related to CD and other related genetic or immune markers. Periodic collection of stool samples allows the researchers to look at the microbial composition of the gut, and how certain patterns of gut microbes or their byproducts might be predictive or preventative of later developing CD. The idea that changing patterns of gut microbes might predict the onset of autoimmunity comes from a similar pilot study in 2011 by Dr. Fasano and his team.

With this study, Dr. Fasano identified specific changes in the gut microbiota that directly preceded the onset of autoimmune disease. Researchers hope that CDGEMM will both recreate and expand on these findings and help to develop a specific predictive model of who will develop autoimmunity. Additionally, researchers hope to identify a microbial pattern that is protective against developing CD; this would provide novel opportunities to therapeutically administer the protective gut microbes to at-risk children and ultimately prevent the onset of CD.

You can learn more about CDGEMM at www.CDGEMM.org or emailing CDGEMM@mgh.harvard.edu.

Keep up with CDGEMM! Email the CDGEMM Team if you’d like to receive periodic newsletters with updates on study progress. Join the conversation on Twitter using #CDGEMM or connect with @CeliacDoc and @CeliacResearch.

Gluten Free In New Orleans

New Orleans is a great place for eating…gluten-free! New Orleans is one of the culinary capitals of the U.S., with a mix of Cajun, Creole and French cuisines, making it uniquely it’s own. There are a few staples you must try if you are there – Po’ Boys, Chargrilled Oysters, Gulf Fish – and luckily you can find gluten free versions of all these dishes and more. 

Oysters on the Half Shell at Red Fish Grill

Oysters on the Half Shell at Red Fish Grill

Raw oysters served on the half shell are popular throughout the South, but chargrilled oysters are a distinctly New Orleans specialty. Traditionally made with a mixture of breadcrumb, herbs, cheese, and melted butter, you can find a gluten free version of this NOLA staple at Superior Seafood & Oyster Bar and The Irish House. 

Blue Crab stuffed tomato

Blue Crab stuffed tomato salad

Po’ Boys are also a NOLA staple, but finding a gluten free version of this French Bread sandwich filled with fried seafood, can be hard. There are two restaurant that offers a gluten free version, Casamento’s and Meals from the Heart Cafe. Casement’s has the classic, with fried shrimp and fried oysters, but the catch is they close at 2pm and you must get there early if you don’t want to wait in line. We didn’t know this and ultimately did not want to wait over an hour, we were hungry. So next time I am in NOLA, it will be my first stop of the day. 

Sautéed Alligator

Sautéed Alligator

If you are a seafood lover, then NOLA is definitely the city for you. With fresh gulf fish and seafood on almost every menu, you must try gulf shrimp, blue crab, alligator, and red fish. 

My favorite meal was at Red Fish Grill on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter. The waiters are knowledgable about the menu and they offer many gluten free dishes.

CREOLE MARINATED GULF SHRIMP

Black Drum Fish

On Christmas we ate dinner at Richard Fiske’s, a martini and jazz bar serving creole food in the French Quarer. While they do not offer a gluten free menu, they can do just about any seafood dish gluten free. They also have a great happy hour, with $3 martini’s from 4-7pm!

After we decided not to wait in line at Casamento’s we ended up at the best Vietnamese Restaurant, Magasin Cafe in Uptown.
