Mission: Gluten-Free Chex

Most of the gluten-free/Celiac community is aware by now that General Mills is an amazing company and is modifying it’s current ingredients to make some other Chex cereals gluten-free.  As of June 1, 2009, the following flavors should all be gluten-free:




Honey Nut



I have been lucky in that I have been able to find the Strawberry, Rice, Honey Nut and just Monday, the CORN!  My local Wal-Mart finally had the Corn Chex that said “Gluten-free” right on the front!  Now, must find the Chocolate & Cinnamon.  Wow, can you imagine the Chex Mix that I am going to make once I get all of these together??  I love cereal and have a bowl a day for snack usually.  I never can decide what kind, so I mix 3 or 4 kinds together.  Usually it is 1 or 2 different Chex cereals, Nature’s Path Mesa Sunrise and Envirokidz Leapin’ Lemurs.  YUM! Sometimes I mix in a bit of vanilla yogurt, sometimes I eat just dry with my hands like a Chex Mix.  I have been known to toss in some Fruity or Cocoa Pebbles when feeling a little frisky!  😉

Butternut Squash Fries & GF Salad Challenge Days 6 & 7

Okay, so I am a little behind!  LOL!  I am catching up now!

Tonight for dinner I made these amazing Butternut Squash Fries.  I love Sweet Potato Fries, so I figured these would be right up my alley, and they were.  Best part?  Only 65 calories!!!!  We had them along with our pulled pork sammies and salad. 

Backing up one day to my GF Salad Challenge for Day 6.  I had a wonderful salad last night with dinner.  For dinner I had Honey Baked Lentils over buckwheat that I had steamed the other day and topped with a bit of Sriracha!  YUM!  The salad was excellent, with (gasp…hope you are sitting down Mom & Kelly) another fruit addition!  I loved this combo!

Now, onto the salad from day 7 (today).  Tonight I needed to find some new & exciting things for my salad.  Enter: Honey Baked Lentils (leftover from last night).
