Best Week Ever!

At my co-op there is a brand of frozen chicken nuggets and patties called Bell and Evans . They are a super clean company (no hormones, antibiotics, etc.) and their chicken is SUPER good. It was one of my pre-Celiac diagnosis faves.

So imagine my surprise yesterday when the Meat Buyer at my co-op told me she was getting in Bell and Evans gluten-free chicken nuggets! At first I was skeptical. I have tried the Ian's GF nuggets and they were pitiful. I also had tried other "full of gluten" Bell and Evans I was on the fence.

They are DELISH! Really really good! The cafe at my work baked some for me today for lunch. (Which was really handy because I didn't wake up in enough time to prepare my lunch today) I don't even think that a non-gluten free diet person could tell that these are gluten-free. They come not cooked, so you have to bake them. But my cafe keeps them in the fridge so I had to nuke them. And the integrity of the product was not lost!

This week is going great! First gluten free mac and cheese and now nuggets! But I will def have to get on the dreadmill (my treadmill) tonight! I was losing a ton of weight because I was basically just eating veggies BUT now I keep finding great substitutes that I like!

OMG, these are SO SO good! At first, I was a little disappointed when I got it because I felt there wasn't enough chicken to make the hefty price worth it, but you can't beat being able to have convienent chicken nuggets again!

As someone who tolerates gluten just fine, (but is so happy to see how awesome you are doing on this journey!) those nuggets are pretty awesome! No one would think anything is different about them. Taste great & quick protein kick.... works for me!
