UPDATED WITH A WINNER – Congratulations April! Please check your inbox.
Earlier this year I decided to finally head my body’s warnings and my sister-in-law’s advice and cut wheat and gluten out of my diet. It was making me sick and had been doing so for years – I just didn’t know it. Six months later I feel great on so many levels and wish I would have made the change a long time ago. For the most part the switch was easy, and that is how I knew it was the right thing to do. However, there are a few things I miss like waffles, brownies and the occasional peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I have tried different recipes and mixes – some have been good, others awful! I finally found King Arthur Flour’s line of gluten free flour and mixes and they are great!! Now I know what I like, but finding them in my local stores is really hit or miss. We don’t live near a major metropolitan area and the few stores that do carry King Arthur are just so expensive.
Introducing my new favorite online source for all things gluten free, natural, environmentally friendly and just cool – Abe’s Market! The first time I went to the site I think I spent an hour going through all the gluten free food choices, the lunch box goodies (I pack all three kids’ lunches everyday so lunch box stuff is interesting to me), the eco-friendly clothes and the housewares section. I placed an order for King Arthur Gluten Free Cookie Mix, King Arthur Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix, a divided Lunch Bot container in pink and something called Snackle Mouth that looked like a snacky granola I just had to try.
I compared the Abe’s Market prices against Amazon’s for the King Arthur flours and they were very close. When it comes to prices being that close I would rather spend the extra 50 cents or so and support a small business as well! The order from Abe’s arrived in a matter of days and I got such a kick out of their box – it had a mask and an airplane pattern so the kids could make something fun from the box. Too cool.
Anyhow, now that I have found my favorite new source for all things gluten free, natural and just awesome, I want you to have the chance to experience Abe’s Market goodness, too. I am giving away a $40 gift code to Abe’s Market to one lucky reader!
So, how do you win that $40 Gift Code to Abe’s Market for yourself?
