My Gluten Free and Vegan List:
Red Apple Lipstick – Eyes, Lips, primer is also a great concealer, pink & red eyeshadows and lipsticks are also great blushes
Gabriel’s – compressed powder (I normally find this at Sprout’s or Whole Foods)
Mineral Fusion – compressed powder and concealer (I always buy these at Sprout’s)
Doterra – I have been using this brand’s essential oils since 2013 and have nothing but good things to say about them. Bottom line: They Work! These oils are gluten free, and so are most of the supplements and other products. I love using the fennel and Digest Zen blends for my digestive health, especially after a glutening. I also love that I can carry around 8 different oils on a keychain now!
Bard’s Beer – the original sorghum beer. If it weren’t for Bard’s, we wouldn’t have 100% gluten free beer options on the market! Their beer is natural, rich flavor and a dark beer, like real beer should be.
New Planet Beer – this became my favorite beer once I tried the Raspberry flavor. They have recently added two canned beers in addition to their five bottle flavors. I love the Raspberry best of all though, because it’s a beer that finishes like a wine. Mmmm!
Glutenberg – this is my newest find. So far, I’ve only had the American Ale. It definitely drinks like a traditional label Bud Beer, which is weird, because it’s brewed in Canada and its 100% GF.
Tito’s Vodka – Tito’s is definitely my favorite vodka, it’s a classic that I enjoy in place of tequila in a margarita. It also makes a mean screwdriver! Try mixing it with any of your favorite fresh pressed juices or ginger beer! You won’t regret it, or maybe you will.
Enjoy Life – Plentils, Chocolate Bars, Chocolate Chips & Morsels, Snickerdoodles (also sold at Trader Joe’s), and all their snack bars
FreedomFoods – Cereals and Breakfast bars. My favorites are the new Crafted Blends, but their Crunchola bars are second to none!
Bakery on Main – oatmeal [is better than you’ll remember the glutening flavor packets, and easier to make], granola bars (check ingredients for other allergens like sesame), TrueBar (check ingredients for other allergens too), and their granola is my Dad’s favorite!
Vitamins and Energy Drinks:
Amazing Grass – Watermelon, Orange Dreamsicle are my favorite flavors
Kind Organics – multi-vitamin, B-12 spray (it tastes like oranges), vegan D-3 spray (it tastes like vanilla syrup)
Calm Magnesium – The Vitamin Shoppe branded version is almost always cheaper
L-Glutamine Powder – this is great for healing the gut
Activated Charcoal caps- I use this with my toothpaste to help whiten my teeth, but also post-glutening
Sunwarrior and Vega One protein mixes – I love these brands because they are always vegan and always gluten free I haven’t found anything comparable to the ingredients in either yet, but I’m always searching!
Selenium tabs – I like the tablets best from Country Life because they dissolve in my drinks pretty fast; I’ve learned that they are great for thyroid health, and that all brands of these pills STINK so you just have to keep them in a glass pill container with a good lid, otherwise your whole kitchen will also small bad.
Food and Dessert:
Sweet Potato – and sweet potato fries!
Red Potatoes – because they make good baked fries too
Mushrooms – portobello, baby bellas, shiitake are my favorites in salad and in cooking, because they stay together and can cook like tofu
Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownies
Milton’s – crackers (not vegan)
Udi’s – the breads and pizza crusts are not vegan but they are my family’s favorite!
Glutino – plain pretzels and pretzel chips are vegan, my family loves the bagel chips and flavored crackers too
Sunbutter – the one sold at Trader Joe’s is the sugar added version (I love it with their Pumpkin Butter and celery, as well as by the spoonful.)
Almond Butter – my favorite brand is MaraNatha
Semi-Sweet Chcocolate Chips – Ghirardelli is always Vegan and GF, so are the Trader Joe’s chips, all others are usually not food allergy safe!
