Having Celiac disease and being forced to eat gluten-free can be an unfortunate diagnosis for would-be (and former) bread lovers, pizza lovers and cookie lovers. Fortunately companies are coming out with new ways for these people to still enjoy the foods they love, and shattering the concept that gluten-free means no more delicious gourmet food.
One company offers three different cookie mixes that you can prepare in your own home for fresh-baked, authentic cookies. There is a peanut butter cookie mix, chocolate chip cookie mix and even an oatmeal cookie mix made with gluten-free oats. These gluten-free cookie mixes aren’t just your off-the-shelf brand name gluten-free cookie mix either. They’re gourmet, made with excellent ingredients which make for an incredible cookie that is simply unbeatable.
The first time I ever tried one of these cookies (it was the chocolate chip!) it tasted BETTER than any other wheat containing and gluten containing cookie I had ever had, I was simply floored. Now whenever I bump into people who are gluten-free at parties I refer them to the company’s website and tell them they can conveniently order online and have the mixes sent right to their door (or to their friend or loved one as a gift). The gluten-free cookie mixes are very reasonably priced and in most cases are even cheaper than ordering through major retailers like Amazon.com
The reason this is such a significant new product to the ever growing gluten-free product line is that it is an unmistakably excellent “real” quality cookie. It tastes exactly like the real thing, where as most gluten-free cookie mixes you are able to tell by their texture and flavor are simply not as good.
There is no reason to follow a gluten-free diet and not enjoy what you are eating. With time more gluten-free products are becoming available as everyday more people are diagnosed with Celiac disease and are put onto a gluten-free diet.
Dealing with Celiac disease can be a crippling and discouraging experience to have to deal with. If you know anyone with the disease (or you have it yourself) you are probably all too familiar with the dietary obstacles victims are forced to overcome while living with this disorder. Luckily thanks to companies that offer new and delicious food products, they are making this disease a lot easier to live with, and a diagnosis a lot less of a burden to bare.
