World’s Best Iced Coffee Protein Powder Latte

World's Best Iced Coffee Protein Powder Latte

This gluten free girlfriend has been trying to get buff over the last few months. I have a lot of work to do and it is certainly an ongoing process. I have been eating a pretty high protein diet and supplementing it with protein shakes for muscle building. I don’t want to look like a bodybuilder  I am just aiming for not looking like a bowl of jello in a bikini. I have tried many flavors of protein powder many tasting awful. I have found that the Dymatize Elite Gourmet series is my favorite flavor wise. I really love the milk chocolate and that is what I buy most often.

Glutino Gluten Free Pretzel Chips Review

Glutino Gluten Free Pretzel Chips

We here at My Gluten Free Girlfriend entered a facebook contest to win a basket of Glutino goodies about a month ago. We were so overjoyed when we ended up as one of the three winners that we took it upon ourselves to write a few reviews of the best and worst products. These babies were supposed to be in the basket but were not quite ready yet. We received them a few days ago in a separate shipment and man are they amazing! These Glutino Pretzel Chips have not even hit the store shelves yet so we are pretty stoked to get to try them. Winning feels good!

Easy Apple Pie “Oatmeal” With Coconut Flour (Gluten Free, Sugar Free,Grain Free, Paleo)

Easy Apple Pie "Oatmeal" With Coconut Flour (Gluten Free, Sugar Free,Grain Free, Paleo)

My new favorite obsession is apples and cinnamon. I have been trying to eat even healthier and replace some of my sweets with fruit. Don’t get me wrong I still love chocolate but am trying to break my addiction to it. I have created this variation on my Copycat Coco Wheats to satisfy my breakfast sweet tooth. The use of coconut flour keeps this recipe lower carb and low calorie while being grain free and gluten free as well. Who doesn’t like apple pie for breakfast? If you want an even more decadent experience you could drizzle a bowl of this with honey or maple syrup and sprinkle some crushed almonds on top. Go ahead indulge your senses then tell me what your favorite hot breakfast cereal combo is. 🙂

Almond Meal Graham Crackers – Grain Free, Gluten Free

Photo of Grain Free, Gluten Free Graham Cracker

Summer vacations are some of the times I remember most from being a child. No school and endless warm days stretched ahead of me.

My brothers were both cub scouts and my father was the scout master for their troop. The cub scouts did a ton of fun summer activities which I got to tag along on with my mom as a chaperon. My favorite of those activities were the camping trips.

Being cub scouts they were not much more involved than a night or two at a state park campground, but to me at age 7 they were the height of adventure. There was fishing and exploring by day and a roaring campfire by night. There were homemade dutch oven meals and of course smores. I have never been a big fan of the gooey marshmallow and prefer to eat my chocolate bars unmelted. I did enjoy the fact that I could eat as many graham crackers as I pleased while watching the boys run around with flaming marshmallows.

Graham crackers have been one of the items I have missed since going gluten free. I tried a few different recipes before finally settling on this one as my favorite so far. I will be working on a recipe that relies less on almond flour in the future as I know many of my readers have nut allergies. For now enjoy your summer, eat a graham cracker, and feel like a kid all over again.
