The Best Gluten Free Bread ... EVER.

The morning we left the naturopath's office with a long list of foods that ten year old Jenny was allergic to ... was a day that one can never forget.

We were leaving in just a few weeks for our usual summer of ministry in Europe with Royal Servants. And now Jenny was allergic to 75% of the things our team ate. YIKES!

Now, these many years later, cooking for food allergies is a piece of cake ... figuratively and literally. Remember this gluten-free, sugar-free cake that Dave made for Jenny's wedding.

But ... we are still super excited when we find a really good product that makes it easier to cook for Christy and Jenny when they are home.

In the early days, the only bread we could find looked and tasted like styrofoam.  It was awful. But it keeps improving.

Recently, Target began carrying Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free bread. And it is wildly delicious.

Who wouldn't love a gluten free bread company with this as their mission statement ...




The loaves are a little smaller and cost $5.49, but are a wonderful treat.

ps. Here are Jenny's great tips to help you when you are first diagnosed with food allergies.

  7. It seems like gluten-free products are popping up in more places. RB and I are eating a modified gluten-free diet. I don't think either of us can say we are allergic but we do feel better and especially enjoy bread more when we eat out. I imagine finding out when your daughter was 10 was much harder than it would be today with all the information on the internet. I thought it was so special her dad made her cake. Especially since I just ordered Emily's!

  8. Ah, yes, my littlest little man went through gluten intolerance. Fortunately, for us, his intolerance only lasted 7 months. But in that time I learned so much about gluten free cooking and products...and the fact that MANY food have hidden gluten. Ugh.

    I am just so thankful for the sake of all those suffering with allergies these days that there are so many good products and options out there, even if they do cost a bit more.

    Blessings on this journey...
    Rachel
