“Hey Pat, let’s go grab a pint.”

It’s St. Patrick’s Day!! And for some reason, this Feast of the Church is often celebrated with beer. I’m not a beer drinker. Even before I went gluten free, I thought beer tasted a little bit like sour gym socks. So, I have no edgy gluten free beer reviews or super creative gluten free beer recipes. But just because I don’t have them, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t! I’ve put together some gluten free beer reviews, recipes and resources to help you celebrate your favorite Irish Saint.

Ginger Cranberry Tea- help cure bloating and indigestion from holiday over-eating {knowgluten.me}

Ginger Cranberry Tea

A few days ago +Pamela Morse shared this Beat Holiday Bloat Cran-Water recipe on Google Plus as a way helping with the consequences of over-indulgence during the holidays. And wow, anything that can help me overcome the results of my total lack of willpower is a welcome addition. I already drink a lot of ginger tea so I decided to add the cranberry juice to that instead of cold water. Continue reading
Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free, Strawberry Smoothie from Knowgluten.me (976x600)

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free, Strawberry Smoothie

I crave sugar. If you were to hear that out loud it would be “I crrrraaaaaavvvvvvvvveeee sugar”. But I’m trying to cut back. Way back. Or at least eat only natural sugars in very reduced amounts. I’m eating apples instead of ice cream. I’ve replaced some of the sweeter fruits and vegetables like carrots in my fresh juice with more neutral choices like cucumbers. Continue reading

Are you as confused as I am about whether your favorite Starbuck’s drink is gluten free?There’s so much conflicting information, and none of it is from an official source. How about making an even better mocha at home, one with benefits to your body and brain? Bullet Proof Maple Mocha is what I’m pouring into my to-go cup. Continue reading

Mean Green Juice

When you collect autoimmune diseases like I do, there are times when getting juice is an emergency. If you’re dealing with celiac disease, a thyroid disorder, non celiac gluten sensitivity, or another chronic illness, you might be able to relate. No time or energy to peel vegetables, barely any energy to even wash them. This is my emergency, I NEED JUICE juice. Continue reading
Gluten Recovery Purple Super Juice from knowgluten.me

Gluten Recovery Purple Super Juice

One of the biggest problems with having Celiac Disease or Gluten Intolerance is getting accidentally glutened. This is usually followed (for me anyway) by days of joint pain, bloating and nausea, brain fog and a lowered immune system. A juice cleanse really helps me recover. I’ll also do a cleanse for a few days if I’ve been traveling and not had a chance to eat regular meals and I’ve been living off gluten free cookies and deli meat, or if I’m caring for sick kids and need to stay healthy.

Gluten Free, Dairy Free Pumpkin Smoothie

Three year olds seem to have a sixth sense. When you’ve had little sleep and have a lot to do, they absolutely need your undivided attention all day. Welcome to my morning. So far I’ve played princesses and blocks, starred in a play with lots of sword fighting and a bear in which everyone dies at the end, and made three year old’s breakfast. Laundry, dishes, and my breakfast lunch are on the back burner for now. (I’m sneaking in this quick post while we peruse the PBS kids website). Luckily I’ve got half a can of pumpkin in the fridge from the grain free pumpkin muffins I made yesterday and that means Pumpkin Smoothies!! I love smoothies, they’re quick to make, healthy and let me “eat” breakfast on the move. They’re an absolute must for me because I often don’t have time to prepare a gluten free meal for myself.  Continue reading
