Rudi’s Gluten Free Spread the Bread Campaign and Giveaway!

What is this you ask?  Well…fans of Rudi’s Gluten-Free on Facebook will can select one of four celiac organizations (Celiac Disease Foundation, Celiac Sprue Association, Gluten Intolerance Group and National Foundation for Celiac Awareness) to receive a $1 donation from Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery.   This campaign runs through May 31st, so don't delay!  Their goal is $30,000!

As an added bonus, you can print a $1.00/1 coupon for any Rudi's gluten free product

It is a win-win situation.  This doesn't cost you anything!  You are helping to support some great organizations and getting a great coupon!

While on the topic of Rudi's, have you tried their new gluten free flour tortillas?  Oh my, only a touch of heaven!  Love them!  They were nice to send me a pack of all 3 flavors, plain, spinach, and fiesta!  They are so fresh.  They bend easily, no crusty edges.  We have enjoyed some amazing wraps lately with these.  One of our favorites is this quesadilla.  Simple and easy, yet so tastefully delicious!

We also made a yummy, simple spinach wrap with turkey, pepperjack cheese, tomatoes, mayo and mustard.  Something about the green that my daughter will not go near, but I thought it tasted great.  It doesn't have a spinach taste to it.  Her favorite is definately the plain.  I preferred the fiesta and spinach.  The amazing thing to me about these wraps is each one has 5 grams of fiber!

  Hat's off to Rudi's for making another AMAZING gluten free product!

Now onto the GIVEAWAY!

Rudi's has offered to give one of my readers a nice prize pack like this:

  • Rudi's apron

Kellogg’s Gluten Free Breakfast Giveaway!

Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Gluten Free Cereal Partners with Dietitian for Great Gluten-Free Breakfast and Snack Time Solutions giveaway following.

  • Kellogg’s Rice Krispies® teams up with dietitian Tricia Thompson to debunk gluten-free myths and help moms with meal options.
  • At breakfast and snack time, families with gluten-free diets can now enjoy Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Gluten Free cereal.

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., May 14, 2012 –Today, while “gluten-free” has become a household term, there are still countless myths that make it tricky for moms and their families to navigate a gluten-free lifestyle. This May, National Celiac Awareness month, Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Gluten Free cereal asked dietitian Tricia Thompson, M.S., R.D., to bust these myths to help moms make gluten-free meal choices easier. 

Three Popular Gluten-Free Myths

With much uncertainty surrounding the gluten topic, Thompson’s myth-busting tips help moms feel assured that they’re making good choices for their kids:

  • Myth One: You always have to pay more for gluten-free products.

Gluten-free doesn’t have to mean more expensive or a trip to a specialty store. For example, a box of Kellogg's Rice Krispies Gluten Free cereal costs the same amount as Kellogg's Rice Krispies and is sold alongside the original blue box.

  • Myth Two: All gluten-free snacks for kids require extra attention from mom and dad.

Not all snacks require a lot of time and preparation. With many favorite products now available in gluten-free varieties, it’s easy to whip up a quick gluten-free snack that the whole family will love, like Rice Krispies Gluten-Free Treats™.

This is one of my favorites to take to social events for my kids.  They don't look or taste any different  than "regular" Rice Krispies.  This doesn't make my child feel weird or different.  She can eat the same as everyone else!

  • Myth Three: Food that’s labeled “gluten-free” is healthy.

Not all gluten-free products qualify as healthy. When grocery shopping, look for gluten-free cereals, breads, and pastas that are made with gluten-free whole grains or have been fortified or enriched as they are good sources of iron and B vitamins, which may be lacking in gluten-free diets.

“There are ways to eat a gluten-free diet without sacrificing several nutrients, including fiber, iron, folate and niacin,” said Thompson. “For example, a breakfast that includes a whole grain- or vitamin and mineral-fortified cereal, like Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Gluten Free, served with sliced bananas and milk is a quick, healthy and delicious way for kids to start the day.”

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Gluten Free Cereal

Moms on the hunt for tasty choices for their kid’s gluten-free diet don’t have to look further than the cereal aisle, where they can find Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Gluten Free cereal. The gluten-free ingredients give family members with celiac disease the chance to enjoy one of their favorite cereals and snacks. It’s also:

  • Made with whole-grain brown rice, eliminating barley malt (the source of gluten in the original cereal)
  • Made with three simple ingredients
  • Fortified with 10 essential vitamins and minerals

Review: Keeping His Way Pure E-Book

I know this is not a typical review/giveaway for my blog.  I usually try to just keep this blog gluten free, books, recipes, and so forth.  I have to make an exception here.  Keeping His Way Pure is just too good to not share with you!   This book was written by my best friend, Tammy Wollner.   It is so worth every penny!  I am so thankful she has written it, as it has helped guide me with my little man.

I have one boy.  One, 8 year old boy.  God has given him to me for such a short period of time.  What I do with this time is up to me.  I feel such a weight of responsibility with him to prepare him for adulthood.  To be a good Christian man.  One who knows who he is in Christ and how to stand up for what he believes in.  I have to prepare him to be a Godly husband and father through what he learns from me and my husband.  It is not a light subject.  It is very serious.  Can I do this on my own?  Absolutely not!  I need all the help I can get.  I need to spend much time on my face in prayer.  I need my Bible.   I need Keeping His Way Pure to help guide me in reminders of how I can do this through scripture. 

Keeping His Way Pure is jam packed with reminders of what our biblical responsibilities are as parents.   It is an amazingly easy read.  I was able to read it outloud to my husband on a roadtrip to Huntsville.  It took me about an hour and a half.  Something you could easily tackle during naptime, but something you can continue to reference on a daily basis to help you Keep His Way Pure.  Even my husband is being challenged by this book.    Tammy gives you a specific prayer that you can insert your child's name to pray.  She makes it so easy for you.  There are scripture verses for your child to memorize.  She talks in the book about how important it is to fill his heart and mind with the Word of God.  We already know this, but what a great encouraging reminder.  I have downloaded this to my kindle and am so glad I have this at my fingertips.

This book is not just another book that you will read and then put away and not ever read again.  This is a book that will help guide you with your son on a daily basis.  I hope you will help us spread the word about Keeping His Way Pure.  We are talking about future generations of men.   It is so very important that we do the very best we can as parents to raise up a future of Godly men who will lead their family and friends to more generations of Godly men.  Our boys are our hope for the future. 

This eBook offers a one year memorization key for three different age groups to make "hiding God's Word in their heart" easier for you, so you can spend your time praying for your children. If you utilize all the Scriptures, you will have three years of Scripture memorization at your fingertips!

Tammy is going to give 2 of my readers a free copy of Keeping His Way Pure.  Find out how by reading the rules above.
