Previously, I had written about a nasty rumor I had heard regarding Starbucks' Gluten-Free Marshmallow Bars. I am happy to report that, thus far, I haven't had a problem obtaining any! Every time I go to a Starbucks, I ask for a bar...or ask if they have them. No problems! I haven't checked at the Target that told me they wouldn't be carrying them anymore, though. I will do that in the near future and report back to you all! One place I went to had the bars in new packaging, which may account for the fact that Target said they were being discontinued.

One invaluable tool in this gluten-free journey is Cecelia's Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping Guide. While it is often possible to find information about the gluten-free status of various food items online, I personally find conflicting or incomplete information. When I have had these guides in the past, I have found them to be a great tool! They've helped me navigate g-free products in unfamiliar stores. (We often shop at Wegmans, and they help us out by having a little "g" on all their name brand gluten-free products. I'm spoiled!! I sometimes feel "lost" in other stores.)

Last night at Target, my daughter asked if I wanted some coffee over at the Starbucks counter. Considering that it was after 8 P.M., I didn't really want any coffee. However, when we got to the counter, I figured out why she really wanted to go over there: she wanted one of the Gluten-Free Marshmallow Dream Bars.

I well remember the first few years that I was gluten-free. What a struggle! I felt better
so that was good. However, my entire "cooking/baking" world turned upside down. Suddenly, all of the recipes I had for doughs, breads, yummy desserts tried and true were suddenly off limits.

As probably a lot of you already know, Luna makes gluten-free Luna Protein bars. However, I just recently ran across the following information which clearly shows that we can expect ALL Luna bars to be gluten-free: "Big news!

I've adjusted to being gluten-free pretty well and don't miss too many food items anymore. There are so many substitutes out there now...or I've just learned to do without. Being gluten-free has certainly limited my donut options, though. Dunkin Donuts, in my opinion, has some really good donuts--none of which I can actually eat anymore. Last year I was thrilled when I read that Dunkin Donuts was testing gluten-free blueberry muffins and gluten-free cinnamon sugar donuts.

While there apparently is some debate over whether or not those with a gluten issue should avoid beauty products that contain gluten, I, in fact, am convinced that I need to avoid them. First of all, it doesn't make any logical sense to use a lip product with gluten in it: I chew my lips! Also, to use a hand lotion with gluten in it, in my opinion, seems to be asking for a problem.

As careful as I am about not getting "glutened" (i.e. accidentally ingesting gluten), it does happen on occasion. When it does, I feel miserable and am sick for several days. That's why I was encouraged by this article that details what to do when glutened. See this insightful article over here.
