RP’s Pasta | Triumph Dining Product Review

WFGF Fettuccine - artisticWhen people first go gluten free they’re logically concerned with what they’ll eat. They worry about having to find replacements for bread, crackers, cookies and pasta. Fortunately, pasta is an easy one because there are good gluten-free substitutes that an entire family can enjoy with gluten-eaters not noticing a difference.

Except for pasta salad. Until now I haven’t found a pasta that holds up and still tastes good cold. On a recent trip to Wisconsin I ran across RP’s Pasta in the refrigerated section. This certified gluten-free pasta was developed by Wisconsin chef Peter Robertson and uses California grown brown rice flour as its primary ingredient. Since the pasta is refrigerated and fresh, not dried in a box, it cooks up in about two minutes. It has the same al dente texture as traditional pasta and that texture holds up even when served cold the next day. It did wonderfully in my simple pasta salad.  Continue reading “RP’s Pasta | Triumph Dining Product Review”

Chic Naturals | Triumph Dining Product Review

untitled4If you like chickpeas, you’ll love these fantastic chickpea snacks from Chic Naturals. I’m a huge chickpea fan myself and I’ve tried making my own snacks a few times but the results were never half as delicious as the snacks these guys have created!

Chic Naturals are a family owned and operated business. They started their line of delicious, crunchy chickpea snacks when their family developed their own allergen-free needs. High quality ingredients are used in all of their products and the most exciting part is that they are made in a dedicated nut and gluten-free facility on beautiful Maui.

Flavored Chickpea Snacks come in five great flavors:

  • Spicy BBQ
  • Maui Mocha
  • Sweet Citrus
  • Sea Salt & Herbs
  • Chocolate Crunch

Gluten-Free Food Trucks | Triumph Dining

50941a31-7c78-4921-87ef-042446204482By all accounts, Food Trucks became even more popular in 2013 than they did in 2012. For people who live gluten-free, this is a fabulous thing. If you live in cities served by Food Trucks you have some tasty, safe options that you might not have previously considered.

In New York, The Squeeze Truck (@TheSqueezeTruck) provides choices such as moc n’ cheese, a sprouted quinoa pasta with raw cashew cheddar cheese, and an open faced meatloaf sandwich.

Another New York option is The Taim Mobile (@TaimMobile) for filling Middle-Eastern lunch options, with their falafel as the star. Continue reading “Gluten-Free Food Trucks | Triumph Dining”

I Heart Keenwah | Triumph Dining Product Review

i-heart-keenwah-bigI Heart Keenwah makes little square snack clusters with quinoa, fruit and nuts. The texture is similar to a nut brittle and is made, in small batches, with 100% organic, toasted quinoa. Tapioca syrup is the binder, along with honey and raw sugar depending on the flavor. All products are gluten-free tested and certified. I’m partial to the Chocolate Sea Salt flavor but also worth trying are Almond, Cranberry Cashew and Ginger Peanut.  Continue reading “I Heart Keenwah | Triumph Dining Product Review”
