Naturally Smart Gluten-Free Dessert Tasting

naturally smart gluten free jacksonvilleRecently, in honor of my boyfriend’s birthday, I shared Naturally Smart’s gluten-free frozen dessert with some of my friends.  Unfortunately, because I am gluten-free and dairy-free, I cannot indulge in this gluten-free dessert so I thought I would share some of the comments from others, many of whom are not gluten-free.   Our sponsor provided us with Chocolate and Vanilla (these are their current flavors, other flavors are coming soon).   Each pint holds 4 servings and each serving has 10 grams of protein and only 150 calories. Almost everyone was shocked that there were 10 grams of protein in each serving (that is 40 grams per pint!). After the birthday boy blew out the candles on his glutenous Oreo cake, it was time to pass out the Naturally Smart and see what the crowd thought:

New Sponsor J. William Cullinary

I am excited to announce a new sponsor: J. William Culinary.  I love this product, finally something convenient for those of us with celiac and other gluten intolerances.  Almost all of his dishes are gluten-free and dairy-free and they are high in protein and low in fat, salt and sugar.  They are the perfect portion.

The owner Jay truly believes in his product and has grown his business primarily through his good attitude and kind words from his customers who he calls friends.
