Gluten Free Lady Recommends
I was offered a free sample of this new gluten/wheat/grain free snack, it's great for Paleo, they are also Nut free, non GMO, no sugar, high in fiber, suitable for Diabetics, Celiacs and Vegans, low calorie. They found and contacted me at Gluten Free Lady.
The delicious sweet taste and texture make them a nutritious and seriously healthy snack food. They actually taste quite good with a slightly sweet and sort of nutty flavor! I'm going to experiment with using them in my gluten/wheat/grain free cooking, and perhaps as cereal with some coconut milk or crumble on top of yogurt, grind up as a flour! Stay tuned for recipes!
They're not only good for you, they taste great too, and as a bonus help curb your appetite. Throughout the web site you can find out as much as you will ever want to know about this incredible product. But let's start with the fact that they are actually not a nut, they are a tuber, they grow in the ground much like a potato or carrot, and when they are ready, they are cleaned and allowed to dry in the warm sun of the Mediterranean, on the coast of Spain for three whole months before being packed for us exclusively!
Tiger Nuts are highly recommended for sportmen and women, children and the elderly as part of a healthy diet.
Here's the Paleo Breakfast cookies I made using some Tiger Nuts I ground into a flour (these were a great hit today at
our Sunday morning Life Group class at Pedernales River Fellowship in Spicewood

‘The G Free Diet’ - A Gluten Free Survival Guide
The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck brings gluten-free living into the spotlight as the next big movement in health and wellness.
Are you looking for information and support on living the Gluten Free lifestyle? Elsabeth Hasselbeck's book GFree Diet was instrumental in the beginning of my gluten free journey.
The ups and downs to stay compliant to this lifestyle diet have been tough and also well worth the effort. I’ve been through denial, pain, fatigue, isolation, confusion and panic when going out to restaurants, traveling, being around people in groups when choosing the place to eat and being in a panic when they choose an Italian place. If you've been through any of these situations you are not alone!!
Experiencing the frustration of walking into the grocery or health food store was mind boggling at first when not knowing what on earth to eat and what's going to trigger more pain again.
Learning to read every label has been very helpful. Learning too that gluten is in so many products as well as non food products has been real eye opening.
Were you aware that Gluten is in makeup, shampoo, lip gloss, hair color and some of our health supplements so it’s been really important to keep a close eye on labels? Because back in 2008 I was not aware of this until I read Elisabeth's book.
Have you ever experienced driving around for hours when out looking for something to eat and had to settle for potato chips and water? Been there done that too. Do people look at you like you're crazy or weird when you say you are gluten free or that you cannot eat wheat and even grains in my case?
Have you felt like the odd person out, pain in the rear so to speak!? For me, it was getting to where I just wanted to stay home and was thinking I'd never be able to travel again. Well it's gotten a lot easier so just know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. There are so many more great choices too with products in main stream grocery stores and restaurants than there were five years ago. Austin alone has more than 80 gluten free menu restaurants. *I’ve got a dining out card right here on the website that you can print out for free.ro CLICK HERE TO PRINT
I was elated when first hearing about Elisabeth’s book. It's full of great resources, recipes, grocery stores, foundations, online forums, and is a literal survival guide for those who find out they cannot have gluten and decide on living a Gluten Free lifestyle.

Excerpt from 'The G Free Diet' -
"It turns out I have a lot of company! Apparently, I am not alone in benefiting from the G-free diet: According to the University of Chicago, 1 out of every 133 otherwise healthy adults in the United States has celiac disease that's nearly 3 million of us. But a gluten-free lifestyle can help countless others as well. People suffering from a wide range of diseases from autism to osteoporosis, from diabetes to rheumatoid arthritis can often benefit from this change in diet. Even people with no health issues have a great deal to gain by giving up gluten. The G-free diet can help with weight management. It can elevate your energy levels, improve your attention span, and speed up your digestion.
Whatever your motivation for going G-free whether you have celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, or a basic desire to live a healthier, longer life this book will help you achieve your goal. It's an all-inclusive, easy-to-read survival guide to living without gluten and loving it. I will define gluten in all its particulars, and teach you how to spot it in the unlikeliest places. I will also help you navigate social situations, and instruct you in the art of reading both food and beauty product labels.
You will learn how to target gluten-free products, both at restaurants and your local supermarket, how to stay on your diet even in a foreign country, and even how to keep your kids G-free in the school cafeteria. By the end of this book, you will be equipped with all the information you need to get through the world without gluten. My guess is that you will only wish that you had done it sooner" - Elisabeth Hasselbeck

The Truth About Artificial Sweeteners such as Sucralose/Splenda
"There is enough evidence showing the dangers of consuming artificial sweeteners to fill an entire book -- which is exactly why I wrote Sweet Deception. If you or your loved ones drink diet beverages or eat diet foods, this book will explain how you've been deceived about the truth behind artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose -- for greed, for profits ... and at the expense of your own health."

Dr Oz has even said that "he really doesn't see artificial sweeteners helping people lose weight....that artificial sweeteners are basically trying to trick the brain.
