Mac n’ Cheese, Please.

Close Up of Amy's Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

All hail the cheesy, gluten-free goodness that is Amy’s Rice Mac & Cheese!

This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite dishes in the frozen food isle. It’s gluten-free, certified kosher, includes 0g trans fat, and is free of MSG and preservatives. Did I mention it’s also absolutely delicious?!

The noodles are made of organic rice, and the sauce is about as home-made as you can get (without actually home-making it, of course). Just check out the nutritional information below, it’s pretty bare bones. If you are craving some soul food, but don’t want the fuss or clean up, this is it. Enjoy!

Be Kind

KIND bar

One of my favorite mid-morning/afternoon snacks has to be a KIND bar. You will see my favorite variety, Blueberry Vanilla & Cashew, pictured above! (Though they have 22 different bars to choose from, and trust me, I’ve sampled the collection.)

The best thing about KIND products? You can actually recognize all the ingredients on the back! The company is committed to using all-natural, whole nuts, fruits and whole grains. Not all of their products are gluten free, but many are. I picked these babies up and the company Starbucks. Trust me, if I could afford it, I’d buy a case!

What are your favorite bars and snacks?

Gluten-Free Angel Food Cake

Image

I was recently lucky enough to spend some quality time with two of my favorite people on Earth: my grandparents.

They’re both incredibly special people, and in the past few years, they have taught me important lessons about love, loyalty, family and thoughtfulness.

One of the ways that I’ve noticed them actively display their thoughtfulness is through food. It means a lot to remember someone’s favorite things, food or otherwise, and it’s pretty simple to make that person’s day with the knowledge. (I’ve felt this time and time again.)

Every time I visit my grandparents, they have my favorite meal simmering on the stove , a bottle of my favorite wine open, and favorite snack laid out in the family room to get my through the 30 minutes before dinner is ready. It makes me feel so special.

This time, my Grandma really out did herself by making on of my favorite deserts, angel food cake, GLUTEN FREE!

The mix is make by Kinnikinnick Foods, and it tastes exactly like its gluten-y counterpart! It was fluffy, light and absolutely delectable. It’s sold at under $4 a box, and extremely easy to make! All you need are 12 large egg whites, your mix  and some vanilla extract. Add on from fresh berries and you have a perfect summer treat!

I’m already planning to make this treat for my mom (whose favorite dessert also happens be Angel Food Cake) next time I see her. Thanks, Grandma Jean for introducing my to this wonderful desert. You can count on me passing on the foodie-love!
