Making lots of GF cupcakes lately. When the frosting is homemade buttercream these end up quite tasty! ๐Ÿ˜‹ Also, I love the triple decorating tip from @wiltoncakes ~ the tri color swirled frosting was a huge hit w the kids. #glutenfree #glutenfreekids #glutenfreemom #glutenfreecupcakes #glutenfreefamily #glutenfreecake #celiac #gfandtasty
Gluten Free Activities ~ Does anyone else notice there is always food involved?!? Now that we are "aware" of food, and potentially dangerous food...I notice that nearly every activity somehow involves food, or food being available. Not so at Home Depot! Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ The first Saturday each month the Home Depot has a kids building activity. This weekend the kids made their own tic tac toe game. This is a really awesome ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป event, and my little guy LOVED getting to use safety goggles and a hammer ๐Ÿ”จ. Thanks @homedepot ~ this was a lot of fun!! The guy teaching the kids was fantastic ๐ŸŒŸ #homedepot #glutenfreemom #nofoodfun #nofoodinvolved #glutenfreekids #glutenfreelife #buildityourself

Gluten Free and Delicious ~ Thank you Not Your Average Joes in Norwell MA @nyajoes! We had a fantastic lunch today. This restaurant really goes above and beyond to ensure your food is Gluten Free. The wonderful manager Ilia and Chef Joe, made certain our food was safe and delicious. I Nima @nimasensor tested the homemade Mac & Cheese, and it was all smiles...confirming there was no gluten found. The salmon was also gluten free. The waitress brought the table gluten free rolls to share, they too were fantastic. I sincerely appreciate all the effort and care that went into making sure we would have a truly GF lunch. It was great food, and a great experience. They have so many GF options on the menu so we will be going back soon. #glutenfreelife #nyajoes #nyajoesnorwell #glutenfree #glutenfreekids #glutenfreeeats #glutenfree #celiac #celiacdisease #gfmacncheese #glutenfreefamily #nima #nimatested

Egg Tip ~ If it floats, it is OLD and you should throw it out. If it sinks, it is fresh and you should make GF pizza dough! I had left some eggs in the fridge at our cabin...wasn't sure if they went bad so I did this old water trick. After a quick trip to the store for fresh eggs it was time to make GF dough. The pizza came out great! Yum! Pizza ๐Ÿ• #eggs #freshtest #kitchenhacks #glutenfree #glutenfreelife #glutenfreemom #celiac

We saw Santa and his reindeer this weekend! They were at their summer home in NH @santasvillage!! We had a fantastic day, the village is sooo much fun. We were so excited to find they offered GF gingerbread cookies. My little guy was happy having a GF vanilla cookie we brought so I had the whole man to myself! Delish! Thanks @santasvillage for offering a treat we could enjoy! We can't wait to visit again. #santasvillage #gffamily #glutenfree #glutenfreekids #glutenfreelife #glutenfreegingerbread #celiackid #celiac #gfvacation2017

Low Gluten...ugh! What a bummer. This looks so delicious, but for our little guy we have to say "no". I realize that "low gluten" could still be considered GF by US standards, but this just doesn't work for us. According to the FDA, anything under 20ppm is "gluten free". So just how much gluten is really acceptable before you feel symptoms, or worse yet, flat out sick?? Let's say you have 5 GF meals or snacks, and each is less than 20ppm, maybe even 19ppm. Now with all 5 meals/snacks you have consumed a lot of gluten! According to our pediatric GI, the experts believe that for most grown adults, they would start to experience symptoms at 50ppm...many other people at lesser amounts. For my child, just 2 years old, and just shy of 30 lbs, his tolerance will certainly be far less than the 50ppm. Let's think about this...that means if my son eats possibly just one meal, at even acceptable ppm levels to be considered gluten free...he could become sick. This is just one reason I test as many things as possible w my Nima @nimasensor. I'm looking for all smiles and true GF foods! #glutenfreefamily #celiac #glutenfreemom #glutenfreekids #glutenfree #notreallyglutenfree #glutenfreekids #nima #nopizzaforme #newdinnerplanneeded

Another little GF snack my kiddo loves!! Yummy mini @babybelus โค๏ธ#babybelus #nimasensor #nimatested #glutenfreemom #glutenfree #glutenfreefoods #celiac #glutenfreecheese #glutenfreesnack #glutenfreefamily
Gluten Free!?!? I get a lot of negative comments from fellow celiacs when I mention Cheerios @cheerios . This is always frustrating to me, because I never really know what to believe. Are they GF or not?!? Getting my son to eat is not easy, and when he does eat, Im thrilled and relieved. He actually really loves Cheerios. I asked our son's Pediatric Gastrointestinal Dr (Boston Tuft's Childrens Medical Center) his opinion on Cheerios, and he told us he thinks Cheerios are perfectly safe to eat. When you have a very sick child suffering w Celiac disease, and now know a cereal he enjoys is "safe" it is very comforting. I want my child to eat, and not be sick! To further ease my mind, and feel confident in my decision to let my kid eat Cheerios...I went on a Nima @nimasensor testing spree! I would like to note: I was NOT given these Cheerios, I do NOT work for General Mills. I bought boxes at two different local grocery stores, and another at a Club store. Just in case there is an argument that different stores receive different Cheerios. I tested regular, honey nut, and very berry...all are Nima Tested with a BIG SMILE as GLUTEN FREE! So, I know there are some other options in GF cereals, maybe some  better for overall health, but right now I just want to know he can at least eat these with out any worries and enjoy his breakfast...happy son, happy mom!! ๐Ÿ˜‹#cheerios #glutenfree #glutenfreemom #glutenfreefamily #celiac #celiacdisease #celiackid #glutenfreelife #glutenfreekids #glutenfreecereal #nima #nimatested #goodmorning #generalmills #glutenfreefoods #thankfulforlittlethings

Every week I check back at my local Stop N Shop to see if they carry bread from the Essential Baking Company...it is never there!! Ugh! It is really delicious GLUTEN FREE bread, I love the multi grain bread. It is a "normal" slice of bread (no weird holes etc) and it really tastes great. Sadly, they finally carry EB bread, but only raisin!! Come on Stop N Shop...for the love of bread, could you please carry a the whole grain variety!! Also, it is NOT frozen...โ˜€๏ธ๏ธ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ˜‹ #essentialbakingcompany #glutenfreemom #celiacdisease #glutenfreebread #glutenfreelife #glutenfreelife #celiacawareness #glutenfreefamily #celiackid #stopnshop #celiac #needthis

Gluten Free Pasta! Living in the North End of Boston is an incredible experience. If you have been there, you already know it is a Traditional Italian neighborhood...and there is no shortage of amazing food. Finding out we were Celiac meant we had to say goodbye to most things we LOVE. Then, while visiting one of my favorite shops "Bricco Salumeria & Pasta Shop" they told me they now have fresh Gluten Free pasta! Get outta here! Yup, it is true, it tastes amazing, and it is Nima tested as GF! If you are in Boston, and in the North End...take time to visit this gem, you will feel like you've been transported to Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น!

GF Chicken Tenders!! Once again The Cabin in Middleboro Massachusetts doesn't fail this celiac family. From their dedicated Gluten Free frier they have chicken fingers and they PASS the Nima Test. Now we don't normally have fried food (try to avoid unhealthy fried stuff), but to have this treat is really exciting. Yes, we are excited about fried chicken!! Lol! It was delicious. Getting take-out while visiting Gammy & Pa is awesome! I had GF blackened salmon w sweet potato and steamed veggies, it was also delicious!! Thanks Cabin, you made us and our Nima SMILE! #nimatested #nimasensor #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreemom #glutenfree #glutenfreelife #glutenfreefamily #glutenfreerestaurant #celiac #celiacdisease #celiackid #thecabinmiddleboro
