7-Bean Soup For A GREAT Gluten Free Lunch!

7-Bean Soup

This is full-flavored, eye-appealing, nutrition in a bowl at its best! You can style it as either a 7-Bean Soup or a multi-bean culinary extravaganza… YOUR choice! And, it suits an autumn day perfectly!

The red, tan and brown colors of this soup match the fall leaves that will soon be dressing themselves out in their Autumnal-Best and falling into my yard… Much to the chagrin of my husband who well get to rake what we don’t mulch!

It’s an extra-special treat for yourself and your family, gluten-free or not, on a chilly fall day!

Set these out for a snack or appetizer and they’ll disappear in no time!

Offer a plateful to hungry teenagers and they’ll quit asking how soon dinner will be ready… They Will Just Want More!

While watching a game or a movie, serve these with a veggie tray and you probably won’t need to be in the kitchen during the action.

In fact, I get a lot of whining when they are all gone. So, you might want to make a few more than you need!

Enjoy, I think that you, your family and friends will love them! 🙂

This article deals with supplements and will help to answer the question about whether you should include nutritional supplements in your Gluten Free Diet Plan.

Just so you will know, most people that are gluten intolerant have celiac disease. I write from that perspective because that’s what I have learned to live with successfully.

If you are gluten sensitive or have a gluten allergy, you may find some useful information here but this article is written for those who are actually gluten intolerant.

Most people who just found out that they MUST eat gluten free are frequently “under nourished” and they may have been for years. Proper nutrition is extremely important when you begin eating gluten-free.

How ever, there are 2 conditions that you need to see a physician about.

You need to honestly answer the following question…

Tomato Avocado Salad for a Fresh Summer Salad

This quick and easy tomato avocado salad came together quickly for lunch recently. I had been out all morning and when I came home, I was hungry for something to eat…fast! I had an idea for something with a pile of salad greens with a fresh dressing, but happily an even better idea appeared.

I found both tomatoes and an avocado that were finally ripe…it’s so hard to wait for them sometimes.

From that point on, the rest of this lunch was easy.

A fresh summer salad recipe came together almost on its own.

The vegetables themselves provided most of the flavor, so that a little olive oil and vinegar made an ideal dressing. Lemon juice would also taste good instead of vinegar, and it would be completely grain-free and paleo.

How to Find Gluten Free Foods

When most people are first diagnosed with a disease like celiac or a condition like gluten sensitivity that requires them to eat gluten-free they will usually be overwhelmed by what happens next!

They go to the grocery store and suddenly they are faced with literally thousands of different processed food products and non-processed foods that they must choose from in order to only have gluten free diet foods in their gluten-free diet plan.

And, they have no idea even where to begin.

So, I’d like to start by talking about how to tell if food is gluten-free without using a testing kit of some sort. (If you are curious about…

In order to support what you did because of the 1st part of this article you will need to integrate the following rules and procedures into your life.

How To Eat Gluten-Free and Not Destroy Your Social Life – Part 1

I’d like to begin by telling you a story!

It’s a story about a problem I ran headlong into as a result of beginning to eat and live gluten-free shortly after my diagnosis at the beginning of the century, in the year 2000…

… It was not an insignificant problem and it hammered me like a blacksmith violently beating a piece of white-hot steel into involuntary submission.

And, it produced one of those “How could I have been so stupid” moments.

This “social life” problem hits most everyone (in varying degrees, of course) who must begin to eat gluten-free and almost no one realizes they need to tell you about it.

I’m going to tell you about what happened to me and explain what I should have done about it to keep it from happening to you as bad as it did to me…
