Gluten Free Chocolate…with Quinoa!

First -

Thank you guys so much for the amazing comments, emails, tweets, and comments.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: The gluten free community is THE BEST. Supportive. Loving. Caring. Thoughtful.

Second-

Thank you guys for giving me the week off. I needed the time away from the blog and my camera to get through the week.

I can honestly say that I have grown up a lot in the past week.

I’m still full of love and kindness from the people in my life. It’s not that I just realized how blessed I am to have such a great foundation of family and friends, but in a week where I had my legs kicked out from under me, I realized how many people are there to pick me up when I’m down.

Last week definitely wasn’t about the food, but if you follow me on Instagram (glutenhatesme) then you know that I did find some ways to keep it interesting.

Like with a yummy gluten free baked ziti prepared by my MIL Emily!

Ten times yummier than this iPhone picture looks.

My new FAVORITE chocolate bar:

Fair Trade – Gluten Free – Quinoa –> What more do you need?! Alter Eco is my new best friend.

I’m not a kid BUT

I love these smoothies for kids!

I seriously love fresh juices, but my biggest problem with “adult” Odwalla juices is that each bottle is actually two servings and is honestly too big of a serving for me. So these “kids” juices are perfect!

Happy Monday friends! I’m back at work today and counting down – a little over one week – until I’m back at school!
