Gluten Free on a Budget Cookbook Review And Giveaway

As a teenager, I really don't use many cookbooks to make the foods I'm craving. Usually I just go online and search for what I need. But I'm always open to trying new recipes, especially if they're easy! I got the opportunity to receive this awesome cookbook from Chandice Probst of Gluten-Free Frenzy called, Gluten Free on a Budget. Not only was I surprised to find so many recipes I'd enjoy, but also to learn that these recipes are cheap and affordable too. I'm extremely happy to share my favorite things about this amazing cookbook, as a teenager, as well as give away a free copy too!

Super Easy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Nut Butter Mug Cookie

I've always been a fan of easy gluten-free recipes and honestly, this is as easy as they come. You've probably seen lots of gluten-free cookie in a mug recipes, but I decided to make mine a little different! I didn't change the recipe too much besides adding a nut butter which actually made a huge difference! It added a lot more flavor for me and made it taste much better in my opinion too. Here's my version of a Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug that only needs a microwave to bake! Oh, and it helps if you have a cool looking mug too. :)

How to Recover From Adrenal Fatigue While Having Celiac Disease

So you've already gone gluten-free. You may have been gluten-free for a month, 6 months, a year or more, but fatigue is still an issue for you. Some people, and probably most people, experience tons of relief after going gluten-free. Your immune system begins to restore, your energy gets better, you don't have as much GI problems. But other people, like myself, still deal with tons of symptoms daily that don't seem to go away! This can include fatigue, brain fog, digestion problems, trouble concentrating, and the list goes on. So you're probably asking yourself, "why do I still have all these symptoms if going gluten-free is supposed to make it better?" The biggest reason that most people don't consider is adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue occurs when the body goes under tons of stress. So you can imagine, having gluten after all those years you should be avoiding it causes a major stress on the body that takes more than just a gluten-free diet to recover.

How To Make The Best Ever Gluten Free Club Sandwich!

Since going gluten-free, I've never really been a big fan sandwiches or bread. I'm pretty lucky to have gotten diagnosed so young which some say is a blessing in disguise. But it also means I never got to taste some of the gluten containing foods which some say is a blessing in disguise as well! Either way, this sandwich is by far the best sandwich I've ever tried, gluten-free or not. It has so much flavor and Canyon Bakehouse bread makes it taste so much better too. If you're ever looking for a fix to feel like you're eating gluten again, this is definitely the sandwich to try.

What's Coming For GlutenAway And Myself In 2015

For me, 2014 was all about new ideas and making things happen. It was a big year as I finished high school early, launched the GlutenAway Online Expo, and went through year 2 of running my blog. Most people wouldn't have as much success as I have had when launching a new business, so I can definitely say 2014 was good to me! I finally began to feel healthier and learned a lot more things about my health too! With 2015 just beginning and college coming up soon, there's a lot that I'm excited for in 2015 not only involving GlutenAway, but my personal life as well.

Highlights of 2014 for me:
In 2014 I was able to accomplish so much. I was able to launch 3 online gluten-free expos all with the help of my mom. I was able to get my health a little bit more manageable with POTS and my adrenal disorder, and I was able to visit my girlfriend once again too. Besides those things, not much really happened for me in 2014! I'm definitely excited to finally be done with high school which means college is next. I have so much to look forward to in 2015 and I really look forward to hopefully meeting some more people in the gluten-free community. I was at least able to meet GlutenDude, Celiac and the Beast, and King Gluten Free which was great! I can't wait to meet many more of you as well.

What's to come next for me:
Some of you may know that I'm turning 18 in 2015. With high school being done and me having to prepare for college, I have a lot to look forward too! This will be the first year where I am on my own and the first year I get to spend with my lovely girlfriend, Breann, as well. I will most likely be looking to go to a technical college in South Carolina but I'm not sure yet. There's a lot of things for me to figure out with GlutenAway and what I want my job to be in the future. But I feel very confident that this next chapter of my life will be a good one and I know I can accomplish whatever I put my mind too. With the support of my parents, girlfriend, and many more people, I know I'll be able to do whatever makes me happy. I can definitely say that I'm looking forward to this next chapter of my life to spend with Breann and all that's to come with adulthood in the future.

What's to come next for GlutenAway:
Since I'm going to be starting life on my own soon, I definitely wanted to find a way to grow GlutenAway in multiple ways. Personal consulting for those who are gluten-free will definitely be something I take on soon! I'm already working on putting together packages to have personal consulting sessions through Skype so I can help as many people around the U.S. as possible. This will include everything I've learned over the past 5 years as well as some of the best info for anyone who is gluten-free. I will also continue to work on the GlutenAway Online Expo which there will be 4 more of in 2015. The next online expo will be in March which is already fast approaching! Working on gluten-free consulting, marketing, and expo planning is definitely something I look to continue to do in the future. The personal gluten-free consulting will be what I focus on most in early 2015 but I hope you look forward to seeing more from me all throughout the year as well. :)

My Gluten Free Christmas And What I'm Thankful For

I'm not the type of person who asks for much each year when Christmas comes around. Actually, I don't ask for anything. My family likes to say I'm the hardest person to shop for, which I will admit is true. But really, I just have so much to be thankful for already and I feel like I have everything I would ever need! Christmas is always one of my favorite times of the year since I get to spend it with the ones I love. This year, I was extremely surprised by the gifts my parents got me and had a wonderful gluten-free dinner as well.
