Goodie Girl Cookies

There are some new cookies hitting the shelves of Publix. With flavors that will remind you of Girl Scouts (except these are gluten free!), one bite and you will understand why their slogan is

Goodness Never Tasted so Naughty.

They are ridiculously good. When I got my first boxes in, my family had to taste them. Next thing you know I’m hiding them to keep them from eating them before I take my pictures. No one can tell they are gluten free. There is nothing “gluten free” tasting about them and let me tell you, you better be careful because you will eat a whole bag.

Amazing cookies that no one will ever guess are gluten free! Find them at Publix in South Florida! Click To Tweet

One of the things people miss most when becoming gluten free is the baked goods. You probably thought good cookies were a thing of the past. Sure you can make them, but that takes time. You can’t just open up a bag and enjoy. Thankfully, Publix is now carrying three of the Goodie Girl Cookie flavors for you to enjoy any time you want, plus I have a great giveaway for you to win some for yourself!

Goodie Girl Cookies in South FloridaThe Cookies

Thin Mints

You all know that time of year. Little girls start showing up at tables in front of every store with piles of cookies. You walk by with your head hanging low, trying to avoid eye contact so you won’t have to tell them you aren’t buying any. All those gluten filled Thin Mints you used to love, now a thing of the past.

Well, not anymore. Goodie Girl Cookies has your back. Their Thin Mint Cookies taste just as good, if not, dare I say, better than the Girl Scout Thin Mints. If you love chocolate and mint, these cookies are for you.

 

Goodie Girl Cookies in South FloridaQuinoa Chocolate Chip

Now, when I first read “quinoa” I thought, oh great, another cookie ruined by someone’s attempt to make cookies healthy. Cookies just aren’t healthy, it’s part of the definition. I was wrong. They are awesome! They don’t even taste like quinoa, they taste like chocolate chip cookies. These were a quick favorite at our house. Chocolate chip cookies are just that one cookie that everyone loves. The Quinoa Chocolate Chip also come in go packs, which are perfect for lunches or when you’re out and about.

 

 

Goodie Girl Cookies in South FloridaOatmeal Raisin

Sooooo good. Crisp, with a bit of a crunch. Everything that you would expect in an Oatmeal Raisin cookie. These have that great balance of being sweet but not to sweet, with that great oatmeal texture. Out of the three these are actually my favorite.

My Hello Fresh Gluten Free Experience

Hello Fresh Gluten Free- The ExperienceHello Fresh Gluten FreeHello Fresh provided meals free of charge in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated monetarily.

Update

We have since purchased Hello Fresh quite a few times since the initial review was written and still enjoy it from time to time. Allergens are always well labeled and we have enjoyed a large variety of meals from them. Most of the meals we get are with naturally gluten free ingredients. Even my parents have gotten in on the action. Because my toddler has started eating more, we switched to the family plan and like it.  If you want to try it, you can get $40.00 off your first order (which is the best deal you can find right now!).

Hello Fresh, Hello Easy

Lately, I have been inundated with ads for Boxed Meal Services- you know, those services where a company basically plans out your menu, does the grocery shopping and mails it to you. Sounds like a pretty good idea if you are a really busy, but just don’t want to eat fast food or take out.

However, if you have celiac, non-celiac gluten sensitivity or other food allergies, it may not be that easy (of course take out really isn’t an option either if you have any of these). My curiosity got the best of me so I started looking at several. What I found was most couldn’t be adjusted for gluten free easily or I couldn’t find out much about their position on allergies.

When I was looking I noticed that Hello Fresh clearly lists allergens right under each meal so I decided to write Hello Fresh and see if they would send me some meals to check out. Much to my delight, they said yes and 4 meals for 2 were on their way. My week of Hello Fresh Gluten Free went really well!

Hello Fresh Gluten Free

The Hello Fresh Gluten Free Experience

Hello Fresh Gluten FreePackaging:

I was a bit concerned about waste, but there really was not any more than if I had bought everything myself at the store. Obviously, there was a box and 3 huge ice packs, but I reused the box and threw the ice packs in the freezer to use next time we go to the beach. Plus, they sent me a really cool apron. I love aprons. Ingredients for each meal were packed in their own little recyclable cardboard box. This was AWESOME, I just cleared a small space in the fridge and stacked them in, super simple.

Recipes:

Hello Fresh Gluten Free Clear, easy and concise. No fancy tools required. Nice picture on the front, simple and to the point instructions on the back. I really don’t think it could get any easier. Especially since everything was packed in its own little box. A teenager could follow this to make dinner, no problem.

Clean Up:

I gotta tell you. This was my favorite part. The recipes are engineered to require minimal dishes. Most nights was a pan, a knife and a cutting board. They even tell you what order to cut things in so you don’t have to have multiple cutting boards. It was great to have dinner done AND hardly any dishes to do.Hello Fresh Gluten Free

Is it Enough Food:

Yes. It is enough food for 2 adults to have decent sized portions. It was also enough for my toddler to eat as well. I made a few adjustments each meal for her. For example, with the Jerked Chicken, I just kept aside a few pieces that just had salt and pepper. For the Steak with Chipotle Pan Sauce, I didn’t put any sauce on her steak and I kept out some corn for her. It was really simple.

Allergies:

I know this was the part you were all waiting for. I was very impressed with the way Hello Fresh handles allergens. They clearly list on each recipe (and on the website) if there are any the Top 8 allergens in a dish. They also provide an ingredient list that tells you which ingredient has which allergen.

Three of the meals this week were naturally gluten free, which was really easy. One that I had was not. It used panko, which I easily replaced with gluten free breadcrumbs that I had. I wasn’t worried about cross contamination because everything is packed and sealed separately. I took a look at a bunch of other meals and the gluten tends to be in simple to replace items, like soy sauce.

Cost:

It is about 20.00 a night for enough to make two adult meals and feed a toddler. While it may be cheaper to buy ingredients yourself, it is definitely cheaper than ordering take out or eating fast food. Personally, I thought the quality of the meat and produce was good. It is not something I would do every week, but if I know I’m going to have a busy week, I would consider it, just to have some easy healthy meals on hand.

Final Thoughts

I loved it. Maybe it’s because I’m a mom and work at home, but by the time it hits 5:00 I can’t even think. All of the meals took under thirty minutes or about the same time as one Doc Mcstuffins episode. Plus, all the meals tasted great and we ate healthy, quality food. It was plenty for my husband, plus my 19 month old.

I love to cook, but some nights I need quick and easy and this worked. I’m planning to keep ordering it occasionally.  It’s nice to eat something a bit different and helpful when I’m just to busy.

Try it Yourself:

Want to try the Hello Fresh Gluten Free experience? I got 40.00 off for you. That’s pretty awesome. Just click here:

 

That’s pretty cheap for dinner! If you want to save even more you could also always use Ebates (affliate link)- they give you 15% cash back on Hello Fresh orders…between the code and Ebates, you should definitely check it out!

Mangoes, Mangoes, and More Mangoes

It is mango season in sunny South Florida, which means there are more mangoes falling off trees than anyone can eat. One friend picked up over 300 out of their yard this past weekend. It’s the time of year you have to get creative with coming up with ways to use up all the mangoes. So what do I do when I need a bunch of recipes?

I ask my blogger friends of course!

Usually when I am looking for recipes I stick to gluten free only bloggers, but I really wanted to get some variety so I stretched out a bit into the food blogger world to get some unique recipes. Don’t worry, I have double checked to ensure that the recipes are completely gluten free!

I understand, and I have the answer.

Red Beans and Rice
We’ve all been there. You just made an awesome dinner, such as my Louisiana Style Red Beans and Rice, you eat till your stuffed and then you have just a little bit leftover. Now, I have no issues eating leftovers, but I have more than one friend whose husband will not eat leftovers. Talk about frustrating.

No worries, Peruvian’s have figured out a way to solve this leftover beans and rice problem.

Tacu Tacu is the answer.

A NOLA Love Affair

New Orleans Trip
New Orleans Honeymoon!

My hubby and I love New Orleans. We went there for our honeymoon and had the best time eating our way through the city (doesn’t everyone plan their vacations around food?) it was amazing, but it was BC (before Celiac). Red Beans and Rice, Muffalata Sandwiches, Gumbo, Banana’s Foster…the kind of food you dream about.

One of my favorite things to make when I am missing New Orleans food is Red Beans and Rice.

Unfortunately, it can be a bit tricky to find a good sausage that is also gluten free. Plus, I don’t have time to spend all day cooking to get that delicious New Orleans flavor.

Give Me Easy or Give Me Take Out

Well, that’s how I feel, but if you’ve been gluten free for any length of time, you know that take it out really isn’t an option AND it’s extremely pricey AND not usually very healthy.

As much as I want to be a “Pinterest Mom” with a freezer full of food for the month and mason jar salads ready to go, it’s just not gonna happen.

I work, I have a toddler, I have the smallest kitchen you’ve ever seen (I wish I was joking), but I still have to feed my family so I am always on the lookout for easy gluten free meals that I can whip up, the less ingredients and dishes needed the better!

Peruvian Causa, Spicy Mashed Potatoes

Peruvian Causa, Spicy Mashed Potatoes with Lime Juice, filled with your choice of salad or veggies. The perfect meal!CausaMainThis post contains affiliate links. Purchases through these links support My Gluten Free Miami at no cost to you. Thank you!

Peruvian Causa, Spicy Mashed Potatoes

One of my absolute favorite Peruvian dishes is Causa. Causa is super simple to make and has so many uses. Causa itself refers to the spicy mashed potatoes that are seasoned with aji amarillo and lime. It can be filled with chicken salad, tuna salad, avocado, shrimp salad, ceviche or really anything you like! Traditionally it has a bit of mayonnaise on top to counteract the spiciness, and in true Peruvian style, a hard boiled egg.
