Hidden Gluten… HELP! August 16, 2011

Dear Glamour & Green Gluten Free,

 

Do you have any advice when it comes to avoiding foods that seem like they should be gluten free but are not? Pasta sauce should be gluten free, right? Do I have to make sure that pasta sauce is gluten free?

 

Thanks,

Beth

 

Hey there! Good questions.. It can be very confusing to go gluten free in the beginning, because yes, gluten can be hidden in all kinds of foods and items you would just never expect. I tend to go with organic tomato sauces that are very simple and clear about ingredients. I also find that many organic foods will label the item “gluten free” or mention if it contains wheat, etc in it.

 

My best advice? Go for pasta sauces that state “gluten free” on the jar, or go online and look up the nutritional info about that brand and product and see if it is GF before eating it. Tomato sauce SHOULD be gluten free, but the hidden culprits can be weird things like wheat flour added as a filler and anti-caking agent in the spices or some tomato pastes can also contain gluten.

 

I found a great article online that says, ” Some tomato paste is made from 100% tomatoes, while other brands add additional ingredients. If you are buying a jar of spaghetti sauce, the ingredients list ‘tomato paste’ but the manufacturer has not been required to tell you what ingredients may have been added to the tomato paste.”

 

Here is the entire article which is very informative on gluten hidden in foods and products: http://www.celiacsolution.com/hidden-gluten.html

 

-Glamour and Green Gluten Free

 

Ps. Also, on the subject of pasta and sauce… You should try Tinkyada gluten free pasta, if you haven’t tried it already. Breads and pastas seem to be the hardest to get right when going gluten free and this pasta is fanastic. I find Tinkyada at Walmart or Whole Foods. Everyone I serve Tinkyada to has no idea that it is GF pasta… it’s fantastic!! Good luck!

New Baby and Green Scrapbooking Supplies! July 9, 2010

You may have wondered why I haven’t blogged for a while… well, I have some special news that I’d like to share: I just delivered a healthy baby boy …Jonathan!

He weighs 7 pounds, and he is 20 inches long!

 
We couldn’t be happier with his arrival. He is more precious and beautiful than I ever could have imagined. I feel so blessed and am beyond overjoyed to have this little angel in my life.
With my new baby I am taking lots of photos and want to do some scrapbooking!
I like the idea of Digital Scrapbooking as it is the GREEN way to do scrapbooking and also because when I make a digital scrapbooking page I can have it on my computer, send it by email or have it printed out in a leather bound album, turned into a mouse pad, calendar, apron and more!!!!
 

If you are interested in digital scrapbooking you can get supplies and training at Digital Scrapbooks and More! They also have baby-themed training and digital scrapbookng supplies!!!

 

If you are a mom or mom-to-be, or know someone who is, stock up on one-of-a-kind baby training to edit baby photos and make them look beautiful and professional for baby books, or get adorable baby-inspired digi-kits to scrap a special new addition or toddler.

 
In the meantime, there will be LOTS of digital scrapping to come from me now that my little baby boy is here! 
And digital scrapbookng will be even more fun for me now that I can scrap his sweet little face! 
 
We hope you enjoy scrapping the special babies in your life too. There’s nothing more precious in the world than our children. Now I know this is true.
Have a lovely Day!
