Although we have been aware of the numerous benefits of fish oil which happens to be naturally gluten-free, grain-free and Paleo (many of us were give cod liver oil as kids), our team has never been particularly big fans of it. Any perhaps that’s why — our memories of fish oil from childhood are, well, fishy! The fish oils of 10, 20 or 30 years ago had an unappealing odor and taste. And after we had our spoonful, we’d burp up that taste for the remainder of our day. Sound familiar?

Why You Should Eat Drink and Be Merry with Udi’s

Udis_holidays_2014

Udi’s is a brand I truly love. When I first discovered them, I had to double check the ingredients, particularly on the labels of their breads and muffins. How to describe these baked goods? Soft, moist, chewy, fluffy, light. Very unlike the gluten-free varieties I’ve grown up with, which on the contrary were extremely hard, dry, crumbly, dense and heavy! Udi’s baked goods definitely do not look, smell, taste or feel like they are gluten-free at all, they never have. They’ve even been known to make people cry tears of joy. Personally, I remember being in shock. Continue reading
