Celiac Awareness Month // Halfpops Giveaway

Halfpops, are an innovative and delicious gluten free half-popped popcorn snack. A common complaint among celiacs and those with gluten intolerances is finding a crunchy and tasty snack. Halfpops are crunchy, salty, savory and you just have to try them for yourself!

Half pops launched in 2011, focusing on what happened when the popcorn fluff was stripped away from the crunchy core. The end result proved to be a curiously crunchy, mountable, portable snack option. The perfect combination of delicious and healthy, Halfpops have many of the health attribute of popcorn while providing the crunch you look for in a salted snack.

Halfpops are made from non-GMO popcorn that is half-popped and seasoned with only natural flavors and ingredients. Instead of the usual fluff, you get a flavorful, satisfying crunch. In addition to being gluten free, they are nut free, have no preservatives, no corn syrup, no hydrogenated oils and no artificial flavors.

Halfpops are available in seven gourmet flavors:

  • Brooklyn Dill Pickle (NEW!)
  • Black Truffle & Sea Salt (NEW!)
  • Angry Kettle Corn (NEW!)
  • Butter & Pure Ocean Sea Salt
  • Aged White Cheddar
  • Chipotle Barbeque (VEGAN)
  • Caramel & Sea Salt

My favorite flavor was the Caramel & Sea Salt, I love anything sweet and salty! I also enjoyed the Angry Kettle Corn, a combination of classic kettle corn sweetness with a touch of spice.

Each bag is portable to munch on as a quick on-the-go snack and the flavors are flexible enough to be enjoyed as a sweet or salty salad or soup topping or enjoyed on their own.

Pete and Gerry’s Egg GIVEAWAY

Celebrating National Breakfast Month with a Pete and Gerry’s Egg GIVEAWAY

September is National Breakfast Month and what better way to celebrate than with eggs! Not only are eggs GLUTEN FREE, they are versatile, lending themselves to a variety of creative recipes, and they are also a delicious source of protein. When choosing your eggs, it’s important to pick an option that’s good for you, your family, and the hens. A standard you can trust? Certified Humane Free Range.

Pete and Gerry’s Certified Humane Free Range Organic Eggs helps me start my morning off right all month long. Pete and Gerry’s eggs come from small family farms like theirs. These are real farms, not factories that simply use the farm label. All the farmers follow the strictest standards of humane animal treatment, safety, and environmental sustainability. That’s not just good for the hens and our planet – it’s better for us too!

I love eggs. I eat eggs multiple times a week – scrambled, over easy, omelettes, frittatas – you name it and I eat it! I love omelettes but sometimes the classic American way can get boring. Have you ever had a Japanese omelette, also know as tamagoyaki. This rolled egg dish is super easy and fun to make! I have a special TeChef non-stick pan for making this, but if you do not have one, you can use any small pan that you have!

 

This Japanese style omelette is rolled into a log shaped form composed of thinly cooked layers of egg with only three ingredients – eggs, gluten free tamari and salt!

Pete and Gerry’s Egg GIVEAWAY

Tamagoyaki / Japanese Omelette
Ingredients
  1. 4 eggs
  2. 1/4 tsp salt
  3. 1/4 tsp tamarin or gluten free soy sauce
  4. 1 Tbsp Mirin or 1/4 tsp sugar – optional
  5. 1 tsp oil
Instructions
  1. Instructions
  2. Mix eggs, salt, soy sauce and Mirin in a bowl.
  3. Heat a pan at medium high temperature and add oil.
  4. Pour a thin layer of egg mixture in the pan, tilting to cover the bottom of the pan. After the thin egg has set a little, gently roll into a log. Start to roll when the bottom of the egg has set and there is still liquid on top. If you let the egg cook too much, it will not stick as you roll the log. Now you have a log at one end of the pan. Pour some more egg mixture to again cover the bottom of the pan, with the roll of egg at the end. After the new layer has set, roll the log back onto the the cooked thin egg and roll to the other end of the pan.
  5. Repeat adding egg to the pan and rolling back and forth until the egg is used up.
  6. Remove from the pan and cool for 3-4 minutes.
  7. Slice the ends of the log off and then slice the log into 1/2″ pieces. You should see a nice spiral pattern in the cross section of the egg.

When I want a quick breakfast I like to make eggs over easy. With egg rings, it’s even easier to make perfectly circle eggs! Your friends, and fiancĂ©, will be impressed – trust me!

What’s your favorite way to eat eggs? No matter what way you prefer, I know you all love a good giveaway! Pete and Gerry’s is offering 2 free product coupons to one lucky reader!! To enter, simply click on the rafflecopter below.
