Lunch box blues

September 30, 2010 at 7:54 pm

It had been a long year and a half since I had been diagnosed with gluten intolerance. A very long, very tasteless year. At my university, I had decided to join a volunteer program that would take us to elementary schools to mentor children labeled as "at-risk." We would meet once a week, at lunch, […]   Read more »

Better Than I Asked

September 30, 2010 at 3:41 pm

I eyed the break skeptically as I declared in an accusatory voice, "This isn’t what I asked for." Before I could continue, my husband jumped in and explained that when he hadn’t been able to find the gluten-free brand of bread I’d asked for and he asked the store worker for help, he was directed […]   Read more »

Finally!!

September 30, 2010 at 1:49 pm

Having to go gluten-free a year ago, wasn’t an easy step for a carboholic like myself! Breads and bagels were the staple in my diet. The first bagel I tried that was gf was the most horrible thing I have ever tasted. The whole bag went into the garbage after trying to force feed myself […]   Read more »

Bread Heaven

September 30, 2010 at 2:41 am

Udi’s put me in "bread heaven"! When I first bought Udi’s I noticed it suggested it was good without toasting, but I was afraid to try it; experience had made me leery. When I actually tried a sandwich without first toasting Udi’s – woo hoo! I was hospitalized recently, which resulted in over 72 hours […]   Read more »

An Ode to PB&J

September 30, 2010 at 12:57 am

I find few things in life more satisfying than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Soft, hearty, chewy bread slathered in salty peanut butter and kissed with sweet jam. It screams childhood, comfort, freedom. But for someone with celiac disease, a gluten sensitivity or peanut allergies, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is anything but […]   Read more »

Real-Normal Bread At Last

September 30, 2010 at 12:44 am

Someone had mentioned that I should try Udi’s Gluten Free Bread. WOW was I suprised. It has been 5 years since I had to change my diet and this is the best bread hands down. Just a little crisp on the outside and soft inside. I just can’t tell you enough how great I think […]   Read more »

Ah…bread.

September 29, 2010 at 8:43 pm

So, after I was told that I had Celiac’s disease. I went to the grocery store and purchased a loaf of bread (not Udi’s) and brought it home. It was frozen and as it defrosted it disintegrated into a pile of crumbs. And forget about slicing it. I ended up with a tiny nub of […]   Read more »

"I'm so happy I could cry"

September 29, 2010 at 8:42 pm

My two daughters, now aged 18 and 14, and I (43) were all diagnosed with Celiac a little over two years ago. We cook at home all the time, so we thought the transition to gluten free would be easy. Well, it wasn’t bad except that we are an Italian family who loves pasta and […]   Read more »

A Design Story loves UDI'S

September 29, 2010 at 8:39 pm

Hi, I love Udi’s!! I just found out back in March (after a year of being sick) that I am allergic to gluten. I am already pretty thin and after the lifestyle change of not eating anything I want, I began to lose more weight. Finally, I found a sandwich at Jason’s Deli that I […]   Read more »

peaceNcarrots – gf cafe

September 29, 2010 at 8:23 pm

Last Summer I was cooking for a gluten-free yoga retreat. One of the participants brought out a loaf of the gf Udi’s sandwich bread and we all marveled over the perfect texture and tastiness. Tasting that first slice, as well as the benefits I’ve received from eating gluten-free, helped me realize how important it is […]   Read more »
