I love making things from scratch and trying new recipes but the reality is I don’t always have the energy after a long day at work. I’m sure I’m not the only one…. So I thought I would share some of my favorite GF products that can help you make a quick, simple meal possible without any worry. If you have some great GF products that help you get through a busy work week I would love to know! Comments please!
- I couldn’t live without Bob’s Red Mill Gluten free mixes. Our fav is his GF pizza crust but he has a bunch of mixes available that includes everything from brownies to cookies to pancakes to alternative flours for baking. See recipe ideas for veggie pesto pizza.
- Gluten free granola by Bakery on Main– this is my weakness. I love I so much I try to only eat it on holidays or camping. Weird but true. This is killer with almond milk!
- Enjoy life’s caramel apple bars (I don’t leave the house without one in my purse. Don’t let the size of this bar fool you it’s small but filling!)
- Mary’s Organic crackers, jamb packed with quinoa and other healthy whole grains you won’t feel like you’re missing a thing!
- Sumerlee’s Hummus if you don’t have the time to make it from scratch. Favorites ‘include Spicy, garlic, avocado and sweet potato. If you can have dairy they have other varieties to try just look for the symbols on the lid which indicated GF, Vegan(dairy free) and Vegetarian. Perfect for apps or a light snack, try carrots, cucumbers, cauliflower, corn chips and rice crackers for dipping.
- Amy’s GF dairy free burrito. This is a great in the freezer option. You never know when you won’t have time to make something and this is delicious and takes about 2 minutes to heat up.
- Almond milk – none sweetened I love the Almond Breeze brand but I’m sure there all good.
- Corn pasta – My preference is 100% corn pasta over rice and the others I have tried. The rice pasta I’ve personally tried get gluey or slimy after I cook them and running them under cold water doesn’t do it for me. I personally find the corn stays truer to wheat pasta in texture. I’ve heard great things about quinoa pasta but have yet t find it locally.
