Gluten-free? Rejoice!

I’ve now been gluten-free for about a year (hard to believe it’s been that long!), and I feel so much better. I love how giving up gluten is one of those things where you don’t know how crummy you felt until you stopped feeling so crummy. Heh.

If you are still happily eating gluten, congratulations, and please go have a big slab of cake on my behalf. (No, really. Today’s my anniversary! Eat cake!) But if you, or someone you love, is currently eating gluten-free, you might want to bop on over to Amazon; in celebration of May being Celiac Awareness Month, they’ve got a slew of gluten-free grocery specials to celebrate. Some of my very favorite products are on sale!

For example: This 6-pack of Pamela’s Baking Mix (which is, in my opinion, the only gluten-free all-purpose baking mix worth buying) is already marked down 31%, then you can save 10% more with coupon code PMLAI822, and save 15% on top of that and get free shipping when you buy via Subscribe & Save. The total cost ends up being $3.81/bag; at my local supermarket it costs around $7/bag.

It’s a good day to be gluten-free, is my point.


  1. thanks! i have a gluten free/dairy free/egg free/soy free kid.

  2. Any suggestions on a gluten free baking for someone who happens to be allergic to almonds? I can’t use pamela’s due to the almond flour 🙁

  3. Alicia,

    Try substituting ground flax seed – it’s very tasty, relatively cheap, and chock-full of those whaddayacallems… oh, yeah, nutrients. 😉

  4. ah crap. pamela’s has almond flour? that’s what i get for not checking the ingredients before i ordered it 🙁

  5. Pamela’s also has soy!

  6. I completely concur. Pamela’s is the ONLY GF pancake mix worth buying. Everything else tastes like dust, grit, and water. Yuck.

    Happy Celiac Awareness Month!

  7. pamela’s also has buttermilk, so not for us dairy-free.

  8. Well, at least now I know why the Pamela’s tastes so good. It’s full of a bunch of other stuff people are often allergic to! 😉

  9. As always, thank you!

  10. Try the Namaste brand of products. They are free of nut flours. And pretty darn good too! They also have an amazon coupon available right now.

    I’m not celiac, but i do follow a wheat free diet.

  11. Yes, for those who have already mentioned it, Pamela’s is great but it is not dairy free and most of their cookies also have eggs. But their brownie mix is fabulous and dairy and egg free. Don’t know about soy or almond. I happily picked up a case of the brownie mix. Thanks for the heads up.
