Enjoy Life Foods and Erica over at Celiac and the Beast.
|Hitting the road in West Texas|
The first box contained snack sized bags of Plentils in a variety of flavours. The girls and my husband devoured these like we had been stranded on a desert island for two months, not traveling throughout North America. I'll share more about these later - pictures of them inhaling Plentils and grunting, "Mmmm", "so gooood...", and "more!" wasn't pretty. When they're feeling more civilized, we'll try again.
The second box contained the Enjoy Life Foods new line of five baking mixes. They're gluten and top 8 free. Since our family is only peanut free, with an avoidance to some milk products, we have no problems eating gluten and do so with gusto. Honestly, my experience with gluten-free items in the past left a bad taste in my mouth - literally and figuratively - so I wasn't jumping up and down to try them out. I expected grainy, bland and something je ne sais quoi. The kids had different ideas - they were begging me to heat up the oven before the bags were unpacked. Just what every mom wants to do after unloading a minivan, right? But since I hadn't been grocery shopping, the cupboards were also bare and so that's exactly what we did.
|Yum! The finished product|
So all in all - a big thumbs up from the Blue Bear Aware gang.
