    Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free at Chick-fil-A

    Chick-fil-A is gotta be up there as a fav in our family. At least for fast food. Their food is delicious and staff is welcoming and friendly. The great news is it’s easy to eat gluten-free and dairy-free at chick-fil-A! Gluten-Free and Dairy-free Food at Chick-fil-A I’m gonna start at the top – french fries. I love fries. It’s one of my favorite foods on this planet. Unfortunately, at a lot of restaurants they are fried in a common fryer with gluten-containing products. Not so at Chick-fil-A! They use a dedicated separate fryer. This makes for one happy Mama! Gluten-free and dairy-free goodness. Fries aren’t your thing (who are you?)?…

    Gluten-free Dairy-free Monster Cookies

    My 2 littlest and I made some delicious cookies today. Gluten-free, dairy-free monster cookies! We baked a big ol‘ batch so that we could freeze half for our upcoming road trip. I’m not going to pretend that these are healthy, I mean they are loaded with sugar in various forms. But, they are full of oats which is great for fiber and helping you feel more full, and peanut butter which has protein. So they are sorta good for you, right? These will be great to hand out in the car for a little pick me up. Just don’t expect the half I didn’t freeze to sit on the counter…

    Shopping at Kroger Gluten Free and Dairy Free

    Shopping at Kroger gluten free and dairy free is a fairly easy experience (as easy as shopping gluten free can be, that is). Kroger was one of the first mainstream grocery stores where I sought out gluten-free foods and they have continued to provide me with wonderful gluten-free and dairy-free staples. As I’ve mentioned before, I do the bulk of my shopping at Aldi. Shopping there has really helped our grocery budget. As well as buying produce, milk, and meat there, they also carry quite a few gluten free and dairy free specific items we enjoy. But, there are several must-haves in our family that I cannot buy at Aldi…

    On Contentment

    Contentment. This has been mulling around in my mind for a while now. Being content. Am I content? Are we as a society? Is complaining ok? What about “venting”? Is it ok to strive towards a better house, better job, better life? Is contentment black and white or maybe more muddled? These are loaded questions with loaded answers and I cannot begin to say I am an expert in this area. What I do know is that all around me I see a culture of discontent and its cousin, envy. Is this becoming worse, or am I just now seeing it for what it is? A lot of words I…
