We are honored and pleased to announce the two latest sponsors of Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef: Greek Gods yogurt and Mary’s Gone Crackers. We think they’re both wonderful companies that make great food, food that also happens to be gluten-free.
As I wrote when we first announced sponsorships on this site, “…we will be limiting the number of sponsored ads here, keeping them only to companies we truly love, the ones who make food we eat happily and do business in a way that makes sense to us.”
We have been big fans of Greek Gods yogurt around here for awhile. In fact, so is almost everyone we know. Shauna’s brother, our friends Nina and Tita and Sharon and a dozen more people exclaimed, when we told them about this upcoming sponsorship: “Hey, I have that in my refrigerator right now!” We’re not surprised this yogurt lives in so many kitchens.
We love the thick mouth feel of this yogurt. It makes fantastic smoothies, which Lu drinks eagerly. Lately, as we have been trying to make this a healthier spring, we’ve been eating Greek Gods plain yogurt, a bit of honey, and some homemade granola for breakfast. It’s a great way to start the day.
Have you ever eaten the fig-flavored Greek yogurt? How about the pomegranate? These flavors are particularly good and such a welcome innovation over the same endless mixed berry yogurt offered in small cups in the dairy case at the store. (I only wish the fig yogurt came in a large container, because we would eat it every day.)
With summer coming up, we think there will be plenty of dill-yogurt sauces, homemade ranch dressing, fruit salads with mint-lime-yogurt dressing, and fresh cherry smoothies around here. In our house, those will all be made with Greek Gods yogurt.
We hope you will buy some quarts of thick, delicious Greek Gods yogurt as well, as a way of supporting a sponsor of this website.
If you’re gluten-free, you must know about Mary’s Gone Crackers.
By that, I mean you probably know about them already, since they make some of the best and most widely distributed gluten-free foods in the US. And if you don’t about them already, you must find some.
Mary’s whole grain crackers are one of the few packaged foods that are always in this house. Always. Made of quinoa, brown rice, flax seeds, and brown sesame seeds, these crackers are good for you. But they also taste good. I am been nibbling on some with a skim of peanut butter as I am writing this, which is one of my favorite filling afternoon snacks. And — I kid you not — Lu begs for these, saying “Chip! Chip!” (She seems to think these are potato chips. We’ll keep it that way for now.)
The crackers come in a variety of flavors, as do the Sticks and Twigs line. Plus, now they have cookies: chocolate chip, gingersnaps, and n’oatmeal raisin. These are great foods to have in the car when you are communting, or in an airport, or going somewhere where you don’t know if you can eat gluten-free. That’s why I always carry the crackers with me. I know these will fill me up.
Plus, Mary Waldner is a fellow gluten-free baker with a great success story. We love this company.
So if you haven’t already, go out and buy some food from Mary’s Gone Crackers. We think you’ll have them in your kitchen from now on too.
We are all a community here. We hope you will help to support the companies that help make this community feel well-fed by clicking on the links over there to the right when you can.
