Mission – Gluten Free Range

I must admit it took me forever to like Mexican – only because I’m not a huge Chilli or Onion fan. But then I discovered Mad Mex restaurant which has let me to make my own Mexican dishes at home. Thanks to Mission they have made my life easy – the Corn Tortilla Wraps and the Corn Taco’s are amazing to cook with and taste just like restaurant quality. Yum

HINT – Their gluten free Nacho corn chips are amazing too for a Mexican snack.

 

Ayam Sauces

I decided I was going to cook a stir fry for dinner. Normally I would make my own sauce but I was sick and tired of the ones I usually make. So I went on a mission around the supermarket to see what I could find. I though I wasn’t going to find much when in fact I found heaps of Ayam sauces. OMG the range is huge and all the sauces are pretty much gluten free, fructose friendly and dairy free. WOW they are even tested in Melbourne Australia. The link below demonstrates Ayam’s extensive range….

Freelicious Corn Couscous

Freelicious have come out again with an fantastic product. I absolutely love this couscous. I have it for lunch and dinner.

It is quick and easy to prepare and I could seriously live off it.  I will add boiling water or heat up my “Moredough Kitchens” stock to cook the couscous. I add vegetables and Chicken, as well as some mayo to stir through.

I also create salads with the couscous as well – its so good and accompanies any meal/s

A definite worth while product to always have in your pantry!

 

O’Brien Gluten Free Beer

O'brien-Pale-Ale

I tried O’Brien gluten free Pale Ale beer during a wedding a few weeks ago. I was quite impressed, firstly that a guest bought the beer along to the wedding (thanks Alex) and secondly that the beer actually tastes of the beer.

O’Brien beer has a very similar Pale Ale taste, a slightly sweeter beer taste although very refreshing – Highly recommended

O’Brien is also made in Ballarat (Yay so locally brewed) – it has won multiple awards for it’s Gluten free beer and it also comes in “O’Brien Premium Lager” At the O’Brien brewey they often have seasonal flavours.

I located the O’Brien Pale Ale and Premium larger brews at my local Dan Murphy’s, in Melbourne.

Enjoy!

 

Gluten Free Book – 4 Ingredients

I absolutely love this book – It defines the way I cook – keeping it simple. I substitute all the fructose and dairy with other products of course.

I bought it at my local supermarket for only AU$12 totally worth it, even if it’s only for ideas.

After using Arbonne, I will not look back at any other skin care products. They are completely vegan and gluten free. After discussing my intolerance with a friend, she recommended I try these products. My skin has never felt so good!

Gluten free savory snacks

Peckish

Peckish rice crackers are available in a range of flavours including Chilli, Cheese, Plain and many more. Let me warn you, they are addictive, and great to eat as a snack. I bought these from my local IGA (Hawthorn). They are also available at other supermarkets. They are delicious!

 

Gluten Free Vanilla biscuits

These Eskal tea biscuits are fantastic – they have a great texture about them and are so nice accompanied with any herbal or natural tea’s

Definitely one of my favourite snacks – they are always in my cupboard.

I’m thinking they may make a perfect base for cheese cake as well ; )
