Who Runs the World? #GFSquad Girls Do (Udi’s Contest + Love)

Udis_GFsquad-April-FB

This is me and my gal getting ready to chow down. You may not know it by looking, but this little lady is one of my fiercest advocates when it comes time to get our eat on. I’ve written about my daughter before and the “does she, doesn’t she” business with celiac, but what I haven’t told you is how she’s already so well-versed in gluten-free (even though she’s not celiac…yet), she sometimes tackles the awkward conversations with wait staff for me. AND, she’s big on ordering gluten-free meals even though she doesn’t have to eat them.

This girl is my GFF, and in the numero uno spot on my #GFSquad. She’s so badass she even drives a food truck.

Okay, she’s not driving that truck. But it is a food truck for my brother’s restaurant in Austin, Texas that also serves up Udi’s gluten-free buns (among other GF goodness). So really, I’ve got a whole family that makes up my #GFSquad.

People, you’ve gotta’ have friends in this world. And when you’re in the “special eaters” club that means you have to be gluten-free, well, then you REALLY gotta’ have friends. This is why Udi’s is sponsoring this #GFSquad party, where you can win some fun things! And they’ve asked me to help spread the word, as well as talk about my own squad.

So first, I’m giving a great big thank you to my daughter who kicks butt and takes care of her mama. Esme B, I adore you and thank you for eating gluten-free pizza so I don’t have to be sad and lonely. This one’s for you—

 

Now here’s how you can big prizes by telling the world (via Instagram) who your #GFSquad team is, and how amazing they make you feel.

5 Days of Giveaways: Sharing is Caring

gluten-free-cheat-sheet-giveaway

I could be in your house.

Whoo-hooo! It’s a long weekend for those of us in the States (no offense to my UK friends, because we still have a special relationship) and I’m personally super stoked about that. So stoked, that on this final day of giveaways I’m going to be giving away not one copy of The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go Go-Free in 30 Days or Less, not two copies of The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go Go-Free in 30 Days or Less, but FIVE whole copies of The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go Go-Free in 30 Days or Less!!!!!!!

Damn. That’s a lot of mail.

But first, the winner of yesterday’s challenge!

It’s true, I was given the nickname “Dairy Queen” due to my huge love of dairy. It’s also true that I can’t love dairy so hard anymore, making the nickname all the more tragic. Several of you guessed this correctly, because you’re on it, and one name was drawn from my daughter’s Dodgers hat. Joel MW!

Here was his answer: “The Dairy Queen, which is better than Drama Queen, although maybe the bit where you put that guy in a headlock qualifies . . . ;-)”

Oh, dairy. You were my first love.

And now it’s time for the next wins, wherein you guys have to do one super easy thing.

5 Days of Giveaways: Gluten-Free for the Easily Offended

gfcheatsheetimgHey gang! At the end of this week those of us in the U.S.A. will be celebrating our independence from the United Kingdom. A fact that is hi-lar-ious to my 9-year-old anglophile who adores Harry Potter and can’t imagine anything going awry between our country and the UK due to our “special relationship.” But that’s not what I’m here to talk about, even though I’m fantasizing about sparklers and gluten-free cheeseburgers coming up ASAP.

This week is also the week where I give away copies of my brand new book, The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go G-Free in 30 Days or Less. I went with less, given my horrifying stomach pain and distress. But you do you.  Continue reading

The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet is SO TOTALLY HERE

Betty White totally knows how to go g-free

Betty White totally knows how to go g-free

Oh hey, guys. So you know I wrote another book? It’s totally true. I WROTE ANOTHER BOOK AND PEOPLE ARE SELLING IT!

This is my second book so you may be asking “What else do you have to say, April? No, really?” Well, it’s interesting because I find myself picking up my own copy of this new book several times a week. Not because I’m checking for mistakes. (Oops! Be sure to add 1 cup of milk to that Parmesan Popover recipe, you guys!) But because I wrote 100 freaking recipes and I need to remind myself what I can make for dinner.

The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go G-Free in 30 Days or Less is super useful. Not that my first book was not. That book was ridiculously useful, especially when you were looking for curse words to describe your current gluten-free situation. But The GFCS is all about living your life day to day and trying to manage your meals.

I’ll be honest, working up 100 recipes was not easy. I was cooking like a gd maniac last year, and I even hired a super duper recipe developer to help me when I was like, “I just cannot get this granola right. I cannot.” The result being, 100 amazing recipes that you’ll want to use when you just cannot order from the vegan/raw take out place for one more night.

Here’s the even better news: Continue reading

3 Ways to Enjoy Your Favorite Gluten-Free Snack Bar (Also, GIVEAWAY!)


There was a period of my life where I decided the best way to fuel up between running hither and yon was to chow on Luna bars and drink Vitamin water. While I’ve since balanced out my life (my eating life, anyway), I have missed the delicious Luna S’mores bar ever since my celiac diagnosis, aka, the darkest day in the history of my waffle maker.

Those dark days just got a little bit brighter, folks.

It’s totally true that Luna Bars are now 100% gluten-free! All of them! Yep, you can get your Lemon Zest, your Chocolate Cupcake, your Iced Oatmeal Raisin ALL GLUTEN-FREE. Do you know how you know your Luna is GF? There’s this adorbs pink circle on every package saying so. BAM.

I’ll be loading up on all of these bad boys, because I’ve figured out three awesome ways to utilize an entire stash of gluten-free Lunas. And you can too! If you head over to Luna, check out the delicious flavors, and let me know in the comments which flavor(s) you’re most excited to try, you could be the lucky winner of Luna samples. Just in time for holiday travel. Srsly, you need this in your go-bag.

Here are 3 ways to enjoy the newly gluten-free snack bar. Continue reading
