Gluten-free options have been around for a while. Some people choose to eat Gluten-free for health reasons, and others do it because they want to be healthier. A few months ago, I felt pain in my sides and was told to go on a gluten-free diet to see if it helped. Since I’ve been on this diet for a while, I wanted to share my experiences with some gluten-free meals, snacks and desserts.


Udi’s Gluten-Free Pizza

I recently decided to get some frozen gluten-free pizza. I didn’t know what to expect when I saw my mom pop it into the oven, but as it cooked it smelled amazing, just like real pizza. When I first bit into it, I didn’t taste anything unusual. As I got further into the slice, the crust tasted spongy. However, I’m a cheese and sauce kind of person, so I was more interested in that. The sauce was delicious. I knew there were spices mixed into it, which made it tastier. The cheese was just there. It tasted like any cheese I would find at the store.

Wholly Gluten-Free Fudge Brownies

I have never tasted such a wonderful brownie. It was like pure fudge, but you could clearly tell it was not made to be fudge. It was not as sweet as fudge, but it was just as dense. I highly recommend these brownies to anyone who enjoys chocolate.

Grainful Vegetarian Gluten-Free Chili

Made with quinoa, multiple beans and spices, this chili is my new go-to meal. It’s really good to mix with frito chips, as well. There’s a perfect balance of spice and beans, however, sometimes there is too much spice, so be sure to keep some water handy.

Udi’s Gluten-Free Pesto Tortellini

At first, I didn’t think it was going to be good judging off of the fact it looked like pesto soup. Yet, it didn’t taste bad. I usually prefer my tortellini with a red sauce, so this is a new combination. I think I’ll save this for a time when there is no other food in the house.

Amy’s Gluten-Free Mac and Cheese

I knew when I smelled this, it was going to be bad. It smelled like cooked rotten milk. When it was done in the oven, I tried to eat it. It was so bad. There was no flavor, and the pasta didn’t seem fully cooked.

Kind Granola Bars

It doesn’t matter if your gluten-free or not, these are the perfect snacks. They make you full without feeling heavy and give you energy until lunch. My favorite one is dark chocolate chunk, but make sure to have some water with you, because they are a little dry.
