Thursday Night Special - Celiac Month

Got an email today, or yesterday and I thought I'd share it with ya'll. With #Mamavation's #2WeekChallenge going on right now I've been struggling with late night snacks! So hubby, always has great ideas, said I should start blogging about food, which I've wanted and attempted to do and he was like, just do it! lol So on Thursday Nights I'll blog about food, restaurant reviews, Non-GMO products, recipes, photos and more!

Lets begin by sharing with ya'll the email I got from Van's. Van's actually started as a restaurant and they served gluten-free waffles, how awesome. I don't know anyone, nor do I have Celiac Disease but I have some friends who are, so thought I would share these great recipes. Just keep in mind that going "Gluten-Free" isn't a diet, it's a life-style for many people. :)

What is Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is found mainly in foods but may also be found in everyday products such as medicines, vitamins, and lip balms. Continue Reading...

You can find out more about Celiac disease from "Celiac Central." Sign up for their newsletter, tool kit and upcoming events!

So Van's sent me a calendar with 30 different recipes and a coupon for $1.50 off! At Sprouts (local natural foods store) they often go on sale 2/$4! So that means $.50 waffles!

Some of my fav recipes, just by looking, and that I have to try are Sweet and Savory Pecan Trail Mix, Nacho Nacho Chile Pie, Banana Breakfast Cookies and Asian Tuna Wraps!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
