The Best Tips For Being Gluten Free While In a Relationship (Shared By 8 Gluten Free Bloggers)

When you go gluten-free, a lot of the things that race through your mind are, "what can I eat?", "How will I be able to dine out?", "Will I ever be able to socialize again?" Of course, over time, you answer a lot of these questions of your own. You learn that eating gluten-free really isn't so bad at one point or another. But one of the many things that some people put a lot of emphasis is dating while being gluten-free. Sure, the world doesn't revolve around food but it's a part of our daily life and at some point it will need to be addresses in a relationship! Lots of people over think or worry that their allergies will be a burden on someone else. But to be honest, that's not the case at all. Us 8 gluten-free bloggers share our best tips to show you that being gluten-free in a relationship is nothing to be worried about.

The Rachel's Way GF/DF Food Pantry to Help Support Gluten Free Families In Need

Imagine your life now. You most likely can afford gluten-free food (although it breaks the bank) and you most likely live in a house / apartment at a reasonable price. Sure your life could probably be better in some ways but of course it could be much worse. Now, imagine you wake up tomorrow and everything has changed. Say you were to lose your job, have a personal crisis, or even an environmental crisis that puts you out on the streets. You're left out, away from your home, without food, without support, without shelter. You have no food so you realize that your only option is to find the nearest food pantry close to you. The only thing is once you get there, you realize that there's nothing available for you to eat. What do you do? What do you eat? You're gluten-free and you obviously can't eat gluten-filled foods to fill the void! You're left without anywhere else to turn and this is as far as getting help goes.

When it comes to food pantries around the U.S., this is a very real issue. Not much thought is put into those who are also gluten-free and in need of food. This means that hundreds of people around the U.S. may not have access to food due to their allergy limitations at no fault of their own. You can imagine how serious of an issue this has become and how serious of an issue it would be for you if disaster struck. There hasn't been much awareness put into changing this over the years, but luckily the Gluten Free Pantry is here to help make a difference and you can help too.

4 Great Gluten Free Chip Dips For Any Party!


When you go to a party or host one, food will almost always be involved. Especially when Super Bowl Sunday comes around. You may have options or you may not! But I'm sure if you go to any party or get together and bring one of these dips, people will be impressed. Each one of these chip dips are naturally gluten-free and pretty easy to make. My personal favorite is the gluten-free dairy free Spinach Artichoke dip which is amazing but I promise you can't go wrong with any 4. Whether you want to use one of these dips for a party or you need to bring something for Super Bow Sunday, I know at least one of these dips will be an appetizer that everyone enjoys.

Why Paleo Scavenger Oat Free Granola is One of The Best Out There



What's one food that you miss most since going gluten-free? Some say pizza, some say donuts, most say the typical gluten filled foods that we all can't have. But unlike most people, I find myself missing granola more than anything else. Some people are lucky and are still able to tolerate oats. But others, like myself, can't tolerate oats at all whether they are gluten-free or not. So when I say that I miss oats more than any other food, that probably comes as a surprise to most people. Gluten, dairy, refined sugars, are all things I have to avoid. But oats...man I miss oats more than anything. That being said, I've always searched and looked for a great granola that I can eat for breakfast and other various recipes. Paleo Scavenger granola is just that and completely gluten-free, oat free, dairy free, grain free, and soy free. I don't promote a product if I don't truly love it, so this is one product that I can't get enough of.

How to Make a Super Easy Gluten Free Egg McMuffin From Home



When's the last time you stepped foot into a McDonalds? Maybe a year? Maybe more? For me it's been over 5. (Besides the time I had to pee real bad on a road trip but hey, that doesn't count) We all stay away from most of the items on McDonalds' menu we know it's just something we can't have. Personally, I wouldn't want to eat any of that crap anyways because I know not one thing on their menu can be good for my health. That being said, that doesn't mean that there aren't a few things from their restaurant that would be tasty. When I look at the Egg McMuffin I think, "yea...that's definitely one of them." The only thing is that a McDonald's Egg McMuffin is filled with so much chemicals and perservatives, it really doesn't need to be that way! You can make your own Egg McMuffin that's just as good (if not better) and the best part is it can be 100% gluten-free and dairy free too.

Why The Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana Is A Great Gluten Free Destination


I've traveled to quite a few places before in my 18 years of living but you'd be surprised to know that I haven't traveled to many places since going gluten-free. Sure, traveling around the U.S. is already considered hard enough as a celiac. But traveling to a country where people speak very little English is even harder. This past week my mom and now step-dad got married in Punta Cana as what I would call one of the most fun weeks of my life. The destination was perfect, the friends and family there was perfect, the entertainment was perfect. But when you're celiac, there's one thing that may matter to you most out of all when you travel. The food. Most of the time the food was amazing and I felt 100% safe! But other times I was left searching for food, feeling like I didn't have many options. By the end of the trip I learned that it's all about where you dine rather than the resort itself. That's why I'm here to help you know how to have a gluten-free paradise at the Hard Rock Punta Cana Hotel.

Gluten Free Expos I'll Be Traveling to in 2016

At the beginning of every year I tell myself that I'm going to try and make it to more gluten-free events around the U.S. So far up until this point I haven't had much luck being a teenager short on money and all. But for 2016, I'm finally at the point where I'll be able to travel a lot more often! 2016 is going to be a huge year for me and a year I am very excited about for many reasons. One of those reasons is definitely the ability to travel to more expos this year to see bloggers, friends, and people I've been wanting to see for so long. Here's a list of all the expos I'll be at this year and when you'll be able to see me!
