Vitamin deficiencies are very common with people who are gluten-free. Most people going gluten-free think that it will make them feel better but they forget the vitamins they are taking out of their diet. With this video and post I share what the most common vitamins are you would be deficient in as well as what foods you can eat to get them.

If you haven't heard yet, the U.S. food labeling system is getting a change for the first time in more than 20 years. A lot of huge changes are coming to our labels which means it can be either bad or good for some. Most of these changes will probably make you happy but there are some pretty obvious things not being done which should be. These changes are all pretty big and changes you will see coming in the next few years. I'll share with you what's going to change with the labels and give my input as a teenager about what still needs to be done in the future.

Guest Post by: Isabel of Banana Pancakes On Baker Street!
My name is Isabel, and I'm a teenager who enjoys paying lacrosse, volunteering at a local horse barn, and working backstage for my school's drama productions. I have been cooking practically my whole life, "helping" my mom in the kitchen. I love to cook because it is fun to share my creations with family and friends, and there are so many amazing things to make out there! I really enjoy trying new recipes, especially the zany ones. I started to experiment with gluten-free recipes and substitutions so my siblings and I can enjoy great meals with my mom (who is gluten-free). The fun thing about working without gluten is that it makes you think creatively to find ways to adapt recipes and make your own. I was making gluten-free pumpkin bread with my mom when we decided to try adding chocolate chips and making muffins out of one of our favorite family recipes. We love what happened, and I hope you do too!

I've had tons of people ask me over the last few months if I knew of any gluten-free bars that didn't contain soy, refined sugars, or have any fillers. A lot of the times I had trouble thinking of a bar or even finding a bar that doesn't have tons of unwanted additives. As much as I love Kind Bars and Larabars, I still didn't like that there was soy in the Kind Bars, and too much sugar in the Larabars. But when I finally came across this one bar I immediately thought, "That's It!" (I know..silly pun.)
