Product Review: Gluten Free and Dairy Free Muffins from Live Well Trinidad - Gluten Free Shop

Image
It’s been a while since I did a product review but I’ve recently purchased some gluten-free muffins from Live Well Trinidad - Gluten Free Shop and I had to write about it. I received six muffins, two for each flavour: blueberry, chocolate chip and banana. They were organic, dairy free and tasted amazing. The texture was great. Soft, not dry and they didn’t fall apart easily which is sometimes an issue with some gluten free baked goods. I enjoyed all of the flavours but my favourites were the chocolate chip and banana. The sweetness wasn’t overpowering and I ate two muffins within 2 minutes and by the third, I realized I should’ve slowed down and saved for later. The aroma was pleasing, especially the banana muffins. Live Well Trinidad does delivery and they offer a lot of tother items such as breads, cakes, puffs, roti, cookies, etc.

My Gluten Free & Dairy Free Vacation in Dominican Republic

Recently, I visited the Dominican Republic for a week vacation and to attend my cousin’s wedding. This was my first time travelling to a different country since being on a gluten free and dairy free diet I was mostly worried about the food, of course. I was also travelling to a country where Spanish is the primary language and I wasn’t fluent.

Daiya Dairy Free Cheddar Cheese Product Review

Image
I recently bought the Daiya Dairy free Cheddar Cheese block at Be Free Foods to test it out. I was so excited that I didn’t care about the cost. I had to try it. It has been 6 years since I had dairy. I had to cut out all forms of dairy from my diet a long time ago due to allergies. I made something simple with the cheese so I would be able to get a better taste of it. I didn’t want the food to be overpowered by other flavours. So I made, the classic Mac and Cheese.
