Glee Gum | Triumph Dining Product Review

Glee_GumIf you’re a fan of chewing gum after a meal or simply for the flavor, but you worry about the aspartame and who knows what else, Glee Gum could be something new for you to try.

Most gums on the market are filled with all sorts of artificial ingredients but Glee Gum is different. Glee Gum is made using all-natural coloring, flavoring and sweeteners. There is no aspartame, preservatives or GMOs. Aspartame gets a lot of bad press and it’s rare to find a gum free from aspartame so this is pretty great news.

The Immune System Recovery Plan | Triumph Dining Book Review

Immune-System-Recovery-Plan-by-Susan-Blum.hi-resThis month by Dr. Susan Blum released her new book, The Immune System Recovery Plan. Dr. Blum is certainly a credible advocate for the gluten-free community. She is both being a medical doctor, as well as holds a master’s degree in public health. Her research focuses on autoimmune disease that plagues people all over the world, from thyroid disease to Crohn’s disease to Celiac disease.

While I’m sure most of you are aware when it comes to doctors and illness, they often retroactively treat symptoms (take X to relieve GI distress), rather than treat the root of the problem. Dr. Blum focuses her practice on preventative treatment, seeking to explore what is causing disease or gastrointestinal distress.

Her book systematically explores how the immune system is affected by what we eat. She delves into the issues on a deeper level, offering practical solutions to healing damaged guts and rebuilding our systems’ natural protective abilities. As most Celiacs have discovered through their own trial and error, it is oftentimes the processed foods that cause us the most problems. Moreover, if Continue reading “The Immune System Recovery Plan | Triumph Dining Book Review”

I Heart Keenwah | Triumph Dining Product Review

i heart keenwahWhen I first heard about I Heart Keenwah, I loved their company name! On first hearing about the mysterious quinoa, the gluten-free grain which isn’t actually a grain at all, did you try searching for it by typing in “keenwah” or was that just me? :)

Now that I’ve had the pleasure of trying I Heart Keenwah’s quinoa bites, I can now say that I’m also a fan of their delicious gluten-free treats as well as their fun name.

Quinoa is the only grain which is a complete source of protein, meaning that it contains all 9 essential amino acids. As well as being a great source of protein, it’s also gluten-free, low-glycemic, high in fiber and packed with a whole bunch of vitamins and minerals. Sounds pretty great to me!
