This is on the menu tonight! Thanks!
Who doesn’t like bread?? Not me! I would eat it all day long if I could. So I was very happy to sample some bread my sister bought from Sami’s Bakery in Florida. So here are some suggestions if you would like to try this place. These are all gluten, yeast, corn, egg and dairy free.
Millet and Flax Cinnamon Chips, very, very good! Only had a few but could easily have eaten the whole thing! This is my first favorite!
Millet and Flax Onion Bagel, another yummy! We toasted it and put some fish ceviche (that my husband brought home) and made it into bruschetta. This is not for the faint-of-heart, it has a strong onion flavor so don’t forget your breath mints! This is my second favorite!
Millet & Flax Bread, good sandwich bread. Not the best I have had but very light for being egg-less!
Millet Sourdough Bread, don’t have this out of the bag! Toasting this bread makes it come alive. Not very sour, more like regular bread. Not my favorite but toasted with butter (Vegan) I liked it.
Millet Sourdough Bagels, same flavor as the Sourdough bread. Wasn’t great cold so I toasted it! Butter (Vegan butter) is always a good addition! It would be good for quick mornings but don’t forget to toast it or you will be eating Styrofoam.
Millet Flax Pumpkin Bread, not great. Had it cold and warm and it didn’t have much flavor. It was very light though, which surprised me.
Millet and Flax Cinnamon Bagel, not great. I was really hoping it would be like eating gluten-full ones. They used to be my favorite and hoped this would give me that taste but couldn’t even eat it cold. Toasted it didn’t even pass.
Hope you enjoyed reading this review. Was it helpful? Have you tried anything else that you liked from Sami’s? Please let me know!
Go ahead and eat the bread! Take care!
Yesterday was amazing! I went to the Gluten Free and Allergy Free Expo in San Francisco and found lots of new products. A huge thanks to Maureen Stanley for all your efforts, what a success! Some vendors I’m familiar with who had new products to try as well as many new vendors! I got lots of samples for my husband and I to try and you will be seeing the reviews as we eat our way through the samples, THANK YOU VENDORS! There was everything from cakes, cookies, chips, beer, pasta, flour mixes and ice cream! I do have to admit I have been going to these for years and by noon I have such a sugar high so be careful and bring plastic bags with you to store goodies for later! I’m not a fan of lots of sugar (although if you look at my post’s you might think I am) I had to come home and devoured a salad for dinner!
There are so many energy bars out there which one will you choose? I have to be honest, I don’t like most of them!! There are a few exceptions. When you’re on the go and need a quick bite or, if you’re like me and keep them in the car for emergencies Zion’s Bar from Better Batter is the winner!
I kid you not they taste like the Girls Scouts Thin Mint cookies in a bar form. Not too minty I might add. Packed with 12 grams of protein, 10 grams of sugar and 5 grams of fiber. They are rice based so that is good for all of us who can’t have oats, corn or almonds which are in almost every bar! Try them for yourself, but they are so new call Better Batter to order them!
The opponent, Pamela’s Oat Chocolate Chip Coconut Whenever Bars, aka oatmeal cookies. They have only 2 grams of protein and 8 grams of sugar. They have a good flavor but this is no energy bar! They also break apart quite a bit. So don’t kid yourself, if you want a cookie reach for this, if you want an energy bar have Zion’s, you won’t be disappointed!
We need feedback:) What is your favorite energy bar?
Gluten and allergy free expo in San Francisco! See you Feb. 9th and 10th from 10am to 4pm. I can’t wait for this! Lots of vendors and lots of tips. Oh to be able to sample food before you spend your hard-earned money, what a dream!
Has your child just been diagnosed with Celiac’s or other food allergies? How are you handling it? Is it hard to find “normal” substitutes? Do you find yourself wishing this isn’t happening to your family? You work all day, take the kids to their piano lessons or sports practice then you get home and everyone’s starving. Do you reach for your old stand-by, maybe pasta or order a pizza? How can you succeed without pulling your hair out?
One solution, prepare on the weekend. Make a list of quick dishes you can make, taking into consideration the allergy causing foods and plan accordingly. You want your children to be healthy, to grow and excel. It’s up to you. If you need help just give us a call.
