Gluten Free is Life

I am a gluten-free wife, runner & blogger with two children in Columbus, Ohio. After my celiac diagnosis in 2006, I have made it my mission to embrace an entirely new approach to nutrition in a gluten-free world, exploring options that run the gamut from “made from scratch” homemade bread to sampling and reviewing the gluten-free prepared foods that are continuously being introduced to the market. While navigating the waters of becoming gluten-free, I share my experiences and pass along valuable product reviews in addition to helping other moms of celiac kids develop healthy menus that are kid-friendly and palatable. I feel that I am a valuable resource for those who are newly diagnosed, as well as for the more seasoned gluten-free veterans.

Shrimp Tacos & Such 

Thursday, December 16, 2010 2:13:33 PM

The other night I was running around in circles. I had to unexpectedly take Jon back to the doctor (love The Little Clinicat Kroger), pick up Hannah’s friend, take them both to gymnastics, go get Jon’s prescription filled, grocery shop, pick Hannah and her friend up, take said friend home, come home and unload groceries. I didn’t even get a chance to think about feeding myself until after 9:00 PM. After taking one look at my tired & frustrated face, my amazing husband offered to cook some shrimp for me! I took him up on that and went to work brainstorming about what I could do with my shrimp.

I finally decided on Shrimp Tacos. I have been thinking about them for a while and that was the perfect night to put the plan into action. I already had some sautéed kale in the refrigerator, so all I had to do was heat up the corn tortillas and cut up some lime & avocado.

Aaron sautéed the shrimp in some basil infused olive oil from Lucini. When the shrimp were finished, I went to work assembling my tacos. Corn tortilla, sautéed kale, shrimp & avocado. Squeezed a little lime juice on top and paired with a salad. Super simple and fantastic!!! I wish I would have taken a picture to show you all, but I was so tired and cranky, it was all I could to do get that food into my stomach.

reviewed several products from Lucini earlier this year. They have some very unique products, such as the Cinque e Cinque mix. Definitely worth taking a glance at.
