Surviving Holiday dinners gluten and dairy free

Another dairy free milk hits the market


  I recently came across an article on a new diary free milk that claims to taste just like the real thing.  It is not a nut, soy or coconut milk, but a synthetic milk made from yeast. Perfect Day Milk, the company behind the claim, uses a strain of yeast they call Buttercup: So they…

Pizza nirvana-review of Gluten free Jules Pizza dough mix


  I have written many posts on the search for a decent gluten free pizza.  I have tried several dough mixes (Pamela’s, King Arthur, Betty Crocker) but they have come up short.  I have tried frozen doughs, frozen pizzas and local pizza place pizzas, and have always been disappointed.   They were either soggy, like…

Amazon vs Jet-which is better for gluten free?


We all know that we can’t always find all of our favorite gluten free products in our local store.  While I love glutenfreepalace.com, it takes about ten days to receive an order from them (depending on  your location). I love Amazon.com and have been a customer since the time when they only sold books.  I…

Why IBS should be managed with diet, not drugs


While my kids were visiting from the Northeast, we went out to dinner at our local steak house.  I ordered my salad without croutons and cheese, but forgot about the butter on the steak.  I did mention a dairy and gluten issue, but I guess the server didn’t relay this to the kitchen. There are…

Believe half of what you see….


The information in this article is my opinion only.   Today’s post was going to be about the dangers of supplements.  But before I get into that, I wanted to mention a blog post I ran across today.  It does tie in with my initial post idea because it is really about being informed and…

Pizza pizza-new product reviews


All of these products are gluten and dairy free.  Always read labels for other allergens!!!! Those of you who have been reading my blog know of my struggle to find a good gluten and dairy free pizza crust.  I have finally found it! As you can probably guess, I was very skeptical, but I have…

Where’s the cream cheese?


  I am finding it increasingly difficult to find Tofutti cream cheese since we moved here to Tennessee.  It’s as if it doesn’t exist. Finding dairy free products is difficult anywhere-it is one of my biggest pet peeves.   Gluten free products galore are available;  what’s with the lack of non-dairy options?  I know dairy intolerance…
