Cytosport Monster Milk Protein Powder

I emailed them and they were good enough to send me a free sample. Thanks Cytosport!! I didn't mind the flavor of the protein, the mix-ability isn't as good as my Nectar Protein. It was pretty chunky. I mixed it with a small hand mixer. I mixed it with Vanilla Almond Milk. I wouldn't be as likely to buy this as the pre workout drink. I did like that. I had a stomach ache after having it, so I'm not sure if it was the protein power or a bug.

Nature's Path Gluten Free Granola Bars

I buy these at Target - they are reasonably priced for Granola bars. They are not big bars, but enough to hold you over if you are between meals. I like both version they have a peanut version and dark chocolate chip version. I tend to buy the Dark Chocolate one more often. They are tasty and great to throw in my gym bag for an after workout snack to hold me over til my next meal. I have been known to eat one with my coffee for breakfast too.

EVOL Products

I just tried the chicken burrito for lunch. I got a bunch of stuff at Target today, they have really stepped up when it comes to gluten free frozen meals. The chicken burrito was tasty. It fell apart just like a brown rice tortilla always does, but the flavor more than made up for it. I would definitely buy them again. It will make it easy to take to work.

Cafe Indigo

Gotta give my favorite breakfast spot a little moment in the sun...they have gluten free toast now. Ohhh how much I love the breakfast here. I love that everything is made fresh to order. I love that I am never rushed for ordering or finishing my coffee. When you eat here expect to spend a bit extra time, but know your food will be totally worth it.

I like lunch and dinner there too, but breakfast is my favorite.  They have gluten free options at every meal, just let them know your needs. If you are planning in advance give them a call so they can make sure you are well taken care of when you visit.

Gluten Free Pre-Workout Drink

I emailed Cytosport and asked them for some free samples. They hooked me up! So far this is the only product I have tried. I normally use a different pre-workout drink that I love.  I had the pomegranate berry flavored drink.  It was a very mild taste. It mixed well in a regular water bottle. I liked it. It was something I would buy.

Ganson's Gluten Free Bakery

This place rocks. They now have a certified gluten free facility and  you can find their products at many local stores in the QCA. They have amazing cakes and goodies. Oh so yummy. If you have a chance stop by their cafe in Rock Island, you won't be disappointed. Have the cake...no really...have it! You won't regret it.
