Evol Foods Introduces Gluten-Free Street Tacos

Evol Foods has a number of gluten-free frozen food items. I especially like their gluten-free bowls, like the Teriyaki Bowl. The food always tastes high quality, which is something you many not associate with a frozen meal.

Evol has been consistently adding foods to their gluten-free line-up over the past couple of years. Their newest products are Gluten-Free Street Tacos.

EVOL StreetTacos SweetPotatoBlackBeanGoatCheese

The Gluten-Free Street Tacos come in three different varieties:

Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Goat Cheese – Sweet potatoes, black beans, goat cheese, roasted corn, cilantro and jalapeños–All combined together in an insanely tasty corn tortilla. Served with a pouch of salsa verde. (Vegetarian)

Uncured Bacon, Potato and Poblano -Uncured Bacon, roasted potatoes, poblano peppers, roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions, cilantro, jalapeños and cheddar cheese–All combined together in an insanely tasty corn tortilla. Served with a pouch of chipotle crema.

Shredded Chicken and Caramelized Onion -Tender guajillo chicken, roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions and roasted corn–All combined together in an insanely tasty corn tortilla. Served with a pouch of ancho crema.

More about Evol:

No Gluten? No Worries! At EVOL we didn’t set out to create a “gluten free company”, we just make delicious food. Some of our meals simply don’t include gluten – that’s just our recipes. Other items (like multi-grain tortillas & pastas) required the amazing craft of gluten free baking. Whichever you choose, we think you’ll enjoy all our gluten free goodness!

Evol products can be found in many grocery and health food stores across the US. Have you tried any of the new Evol Gluten-Free Street Tacos?

The series is on sale for $29.99 (25% off) today, though I am not sure how long the sale price is good. More about the instructor:

  • Pancakes
  • Cookies
  • Quick Breads
  • Dreaded Doughs: Pies

One of the best things about Craftsy and the classes offered is that you can do this all on your own time. The classes never expire and there is a 100% money back guarantee. There is a list of supplies needed for the class that can be viewed before purchasing the class. I really wish this would have been around when I began the gluten-free diet in 2006.

Holiday Baking Company Adds New Fall Treats

Holiday Baking Company began in the apartment kitchen of proprietor, Lisa, in 2002. Lisa grew up watching and learning from her mother and grandmother as they always baked from scratch. In 2008, Lisa opened a bakery in Worthington, Ohio, but that bakery was not 100% gluten-free. It wasn’t until July of 2009 that they bakery became a dedicated gluten-free facility.

Larabar News

I have been a fan of Larabar products since as long as I have been gluten-free. When I started the diet I was forced to look outside the box at some foods that I wouldn’t have chosen previously. Many times I found new products that I fell in love with, like I did with Larabar. These days I use Larabar ALT for a quick snack after a run or workout to hold me over until my next meal.

Larabar is bringing back a couple of seasonal favorites for fall: Pumpkin Pie and Snickerdoodle.

If you haven’t had a chance to try these bars, seek them out. They are both awesome and are much healthier versions of the real thing. They will only be around for a limited time, so don’t miss your chance!

Larabar Uber has changed the packaging so that you can now see exactly how “uber” is bar is when you pluck it off of the grocery store shelf. As the slogan says, “What you see is what you taste!”

Look for Larabar products in your local heath and grocery stores. They are also available online from a number of different sources
