As regular readers will know, I attend the Natural Products Expo each year and make new discoveries and new connections.

One of the items in the box that I received was a jar of fruit and Chia by World of Chia. I initially tried this on a piece of bread toasted with butter and was immediately impressed. I knew at that first bite that I wanted to try the others and share it with you all!
GlutenTox Home Gluten Detection Kit Review + Giveaway
I am going to let you in on a secret – when I began this blog I had never heard the words gluten free and Celiac Disease. As time passed I began reviewing more and more gluten-free items, as well as attending the Natural Products Expo for the past 3 years. I have not only learned about Celiac Disease, but also what items in food is dangerous and why it is so dangerous.
Since learning about this silent threat, I feel passionately about making sure that people are aware there are tasty gluten free options available. While not my original path, I am happy that the road led me here.
There are times that people with gluten sensitivities get homemade gifts from friends or family and it is unknown if the item is gluten free. Thankfully there is a home test that in about 10 minutes can tell you if there is gluten – the GlutenTox Home Test Kit.
As I have mentioned in the past we are a snack house and we are always looking for tasty snacks that are healthy and will make our eating better. When I recently discovered the Chedz Premium Cheese Snacks I wanted to try the rest, and see if the other flavors were as good as the original.
