Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee or nice glass of wine and chat about everything from gluten-free goodies to handmade goodness. Today on the blog, we are going to check out a few of my gluten-free favorites . I am always searching for new foods to try–especially easy-to-fix ones because we all have busy lives and being able to grab a good, healthy snack or lunch is very important.
My name is Chasidy, and I am a pizzaholic. It has been three days since my last piece of gluten-free pizza….Yes, I absolutely love pizza. I like cheese pizza, pepperoni pizza, Hawaiian BBQ chicken pizza, House Special pizza….pretty much all pizza *smile* I have mentioned Mellow Mushroom’s gluten-free pizza before, and since that post, I have been a few more times…working my way through the menu *wink* The staff at Mellow Mushroom has been extremely sweet and understanding of my gluten allergy, and so far, I have suffered no ill effects from eating my all-time favorite food.
I am a huge fan of pretzels. Before being diagnosed with Celiac, I enjoyed soft pretzels with salt and with cinnamon + sugar. It was a warm and comforting snack. Once my Celiac lifestyle began, I never imagined that I would get to enjoy a soft, yummy pretzel again! Can y’all imagine how thrilled I was when I spied Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels at The Whole Foods Market!!! To be honest, I teared up a little *wink*
I know it seems like I am a junk food junkie…and in one way, I am. It is not that I don’t enjoy a good salad–I do love a good salad–especially spinach + strawberries + feta…it is just that I am a grazer…a snacker. But that doesn’t mean that I sit around munching on gluten-free chips and cupcakes *wink* My newest snack addiction is organic chocolate chewy banana bites by barnana. They are deliciously sweet and filling + perfect with a good cup of coffee *smile*
The last gluten-free top pick of the week is gluten-free macaroons from Cakes in a Cup in Johnson City, Tennessee. I am totally crushing on Cakes in a Cup’s gluten-free treats! It is so great having a local place where I can get fresh-baked, gluten-free goodies. If you are in or around the Johnson City area, stop by Cakes in a Cup–you won’t regret it *smile*
Are y’all hungry yet? I know I am! I think I will go have a few banana bites before I go to the art studio to work on my latest project. Don’t fret. I will be sharing it with y’all soon + the Hathorn Hall Christmas tour. My goodness! So much to do and so little time!! And that is why I snack *wink*
*Please remember that what doesn’t bother me might bother you–so please read all labels carefully + be cautious when trying new foods.*
