Say hello to...In My Element Blog.

I recently discovered Leesha's, In my Element blog after she had left a comment on mine. Although her entire blog isn't necessarily about gf topics, it's very interesting and nicely written. I want to share (and hope she doesn't mind!) one of her interesting articles that I just finished reading called, one/sixth. It's about her road to recovery after 1 month of going gf. Enjoy :P

Say hello to...back in Seoul!

Well, I have officially left Canada, and all the good food that was fed to me. This photo was part of a 3 course meal that my father prepared for me the night before I left: wild salmon with cheddar, asparagus, yam fries, and crispy rice coated shrimp (the main course). Now that I'm back in Seoul and have finally bought a larger oven and a slow cooker, I hope to experiment some more and post some recipes of my own :P

Say hello to...Bare Minerals Makeup.

Ok, so I recommended Everyday Minerals in the past. It's not a bad company, and is dedicated to being gluten-free. However, since visiting Canada briefly I've had the opportunity to experiment with other brands. I visited Sephora, bought the Bare Minerals Start-up Kit, and am sold. I don't think I could possibly go back to using another brand. Bare Minerals is a gluten-free line from Bare Escentuals. The powder goes on so smoothly and so natural, that it's barely there. Seriously. I've used the foundation, blush, eyeshadow, mascara, AND eyeliner. It's all so natural and so pleasing to the face. I couldn't recommend a better company. Seriously.

Say hello to...quinoa.

If you haven't tried the ancient grain quinoa, originating in South America, than you are definitely missing out. This tasty nutty grain tastes fantastic paired with any food, even mixed with brown rice. Made too much quinoa? Use the leftovers on a salad the next day. This grain is as healthy as it gets, and high in protein. Organic quinoa can be bought at your local Costco at a very reasonable price. Be sure to try it :P

Say goodbye to...Green Beaver Natural Deodorant.

Maybe it's just me and that I haven't given 'natural' deodorant a long enough chance to proove itself, but I really haven't found an organic, natural deodorant that works for me. I'm an active personal who works out regularly and needs a good deodorant. If you can recommend one that has worked for you, please do, but for now I DON'T recommend the Green Beaver Natural Deodorant. Although I have enjoyed some of their products, this isn't one that works for me.

Say hello to...Freybe meat.

I'm pleased to announce that I've found a fantastic sausage company that makes delicious gluten-free sausages: Freybe. You can find it at most local grocery stores, as well as at Choices, my highly recommended West Coast Canadian Health Food store. I wasn't able to try all their products, but definitely made time to try their Beef Jerky, Honey Ham Pepperoni sticks, as well as their Turkey Chicken Pepperoni sticks. All of course Gluten-Free and Lactose Free :)

Say goodbye to...Mi-Del Animal Cookies.

I must say that I was not overly impressed with the Mi-Del Arrowroot Animal Cookies. Perhaps they'd be fine for a baby or child, but not too tasty for an adult. You may wonder why in the world I'm buying animal cookies to begin with?! Well, I'm a kid at heart, and love to try sweets. I definitely prefer KinniKritter's Animal Cookies, though they are very sweet.
