These are a Few of My Favorite Gluten-Free Things

These are a Few of My Favorite *Gluten-Free* Things

Don’t you love when friends find something fabulous and share it with you?

 

New products, foods, or items that make life better are always fun. And, of course, trying, then loving those products is even more amazing!

 

Since we are in the swing of the holidays . . . I thought I would share some of my favorite things that make my gluten-free life so much easier.

 

If you have been in my gluten-free world at all – you know I love to be in the kitchen. I totally take after my parents in that regard, growing up with my mom baking and my dad cooking.

 

The best part is all the tools we get to use to make preparing food more fun!

 

Here are . . .

My Gluten-Free Favorites

for the Kitchen

Ninja Blender for gluten-free smoothies

The Ninja Blender

Daily shakes give me the energy and stamina needed for the day. Making smoothies absolutely changed my health, digestion, and energy. (Learn more about that here.)

I wasn’t sold on the smoothie habit at first. It seemed like it would be so much work! (Psst . . . it’s not once you get it down.) So, dropping $300 on a new high-end blender wasn’t high on the priorities then.

I started with the Ninja Blender.

Funny thing . . . I still use my Ninja! I never upgraded because it works so well. It even comes with me on vacation – easy to throw in a bag and take along.

Favorite Gluten-Free Things cookie scoops

Cookie Scoops

These guys are a lifesaver when baking muffins and cookies. If you have kids or are serving kids, (ha – even some adults!), you definitely need these scoops so that no one complains about who has the BIGGEST cookie. Am I right?

And, when every item is the same size, they bake evenly.

I wouldn’t think about making cookies, or muffins, without these amazing cookie scoops.

Favorite Gluten-Free Things Whoopie Pie Pans

Whoopie Pie Pans

This is my “secret weapon” in gluten-free baking.

When I started baking gluten-free, it was a huge learning curve. After baking my whole life (thanks mom!), there were still a lot of mishaps when baking GF.

Thankfully, we now make amazing delicious GF treats everyone loves (You can too, right here).

But, when I started baking my muffins in these whoopie pie pans – they baked quite nicely.

Besides whoopie pies, we bake muffins, cookies and rolls in these pans – super fabulous! They truly come out so good!

Avocados in a food processor for gluten-free pudding

Cuisinart Mini-Blender

This is a little tool in my kitchen that I could not do without today.

A large Cuisinart is great, but this little guy, the mini-Cuisinart, does the trick in many of our delicious GF recipes.

It is perfect for making our Healthy Chocolate Pudding, Date Balls and for blending oats into oat flour for our recipes.

Yep – this one is a keeper!

Favorite Things Kitchen Aide Mixer

Kitchen Aide Mixer

My parents gave me this Kitchen Aide Mixer – I thought it meant I had arrived as a REAL baker!

It sure feels quite professional when using it and gives great results to our gluten-free breads and mixes.

It’s a bigger kitchen expense, but if you use it as much as we do – so worth it.  Ask Santa to bring this one!

Other Favorites that just make

Gluten-Free Life Better and More Fun

Gluten-Free T-Shirts

Oh, come on . . . We all need a GF t-shirt – Check out mine!

Amazon has a lot to choose from so that you can share being GF with those around you.

This is a great way to open up a conversation.  We always need to spread GOOD news and educate about being GF. We need to change the (downer) script that society spreads!

Favorite Things Gratitude Journals

Gratitude Journals

Don’t know about you, but I have a million plain school notebooks. Yet, isn’t it more fun to write in a special, pretty book . . . especially if we write what we are grateful for each day?

Did you know that this simple act, done daily, can change your life?

It helps your brain focus on the positive, instead of heading toward negative thoughts, or what might be wrong, which our brains typically tend to do. The more you focus on the positive . . . more positive comes into your life. How amazing is that?

Join me in this daily habit and start your own gratitude journal this coming new year!

Puzzles

Do you like puzzles?

I absolutely love to sit and build a puzzle, either while I’m listening to a podcast or class, or just to chill out and let my mind wander.

They are very relaxing – good for your brain as well.

We all need self-care in our gluten-free life to rest and relax!

Here’s an assortment of puzzles to check out. For me, they have to be 1000 or more pieces to even think about starting!

Which kind do you like?
