1. Jovial Gluten Free Pasta
2. Gletenfreeda Oatmeal
I have been eating Glutenfreeda oatmeal for a while but these are new flavors for me. Both are very good. I really like the Cranberry. I find these are great for taking places when I'm on the go. Pack them for work, when you are on vacation and it is a perfect airport breakfast - all you need to find is hot water.
3. Organicville Salsa
Salsa is pretty easy to make. Sometimes you want to just open a jar. We found this on vacation and since have found it at our local Whole Foods. Organicville made a good, simple salsa. They have a lot of great products - we use their Siracha and BBQ Sauce regularly.
4. Applegate Meats
Applegate has many products and their meats are GF. We like their Sunday bacon on, well, Sunday. I like the leftover bacon for BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato panini's). The sausages were a new find for us and they are really good. The sweet italian is just right - the perfect amount of fennel. The fire roasted red pepper is good with a nice kick.
5. Gluten Free Girl Scout Cookies
My daughter was selling Girl Scout Cookies this year but the GF chocolate chip shortbread cookies was not available in San Diego. We happened to get one bag. They are certified GF and made in a gluten free facility.
Unfortunately, they were not very good. The were dry, crumbly and did not have a good flavor or texture. I like my Chocolate chip cookie recipe. I also think for store bought K-Toos by Kinnikinnik are pretty good.
6. Cookwell & Company
Cookwell & Company makes a really good escabeche salsa - it has a nice smokey flavor. They have a number of GF items. These go great with nachos. I use the tomatillo to make chilaquiles if I don't have time to make my own salsa verde. If you don't know what chilaquiles is you are missing out - look it up and have it for breakfast.
7. Lotus Foods
Lotus foods makes rice and rice noodles and all of their products are GF. I especially like these ramen with miso soup packets. Its a quick on the go meal. You can add an egg, vegetables, shrimp or other meat and it makes it a meal.
There you have it. A handful and a half of GF items. Look for them in your local store or order them online.
Until next time,
