Walkers Shortbread Interview from the Natural Products Expo West

I don’t know about you, but for me Walkers Shortbread is synonymous with shortbread cookies. My mom would occasionally have them in the pantry and what a treat.  I was very sad that I couldn’t eat them anymore when I became gluten-free. Well not anymore….in my latest interview from the Natural Products Expo West, I interview Lisa Sherman of Walkers Shortbread and she introduces me to their new gluten-free shortbread cookies, which come in three different flavors. I’m a classic girl so I love the Classic Shortbread cookie but the Ginger Lemon and Chocolate Chip Shortbread are also amazing. If you can’t find them in your local store, you can order them online here’s the link: http://us.walkersshortbread.com/category/GlutenFree_Shortbread/1377.aspx

Natural Products Expo West Update

Last week was the Natural Products Expo West.  It was a huge event one of the largest conferences I’ve ever been to. I was only able to go for one day and I certainly couldn’t see it all. But I did manage to grab some amazing interviews with some great innovative companies in the gluten free world like Udi’s, Bob’s Red Mill, Vans and Food Should Taste Good. I have about 8 to 10 interviews to edit so I will be unveiling them over the next 2-3 weeks.

Here are some of the great items that I was given.  They should be on your store’s shelves in the coming months, if they aren’t there already….except the scarf, that’s mine. 😉

Gluten Free Avenger Episode 5:  Natural Products Expo West Haul is now live on YouTube, you can use this link (http://youtu.be/quQTpEdXYBI) or view it below:

Gluten Free Almond Blueberry Pancakes

Everyone that knows me knows that I LOVE breakfast.  I always have.  I like to start my day off right by eating something healthy and yummy.   These are my favorite gluten free pancakes.  I think it’s because they have my two weaknesses….almonds and blueberries.  They’re light, fluffy, and oh so full of flavor!  I hope you like them too!
