So, you’re on limited time. You’ve just left a meeting, have to run an errand and have only 20 minutes to grab a quick bite to eat before you need to race back to work or to pick up the kids. No problem, right? Wrong! You’re Gluten-Free which means your choices are limited to say the least. I recently read an article in Good Housekeeping and wanted to share some of the Gluten-Free highlights to ease the burden of finding delicious, healthy options for my on-the-go friends.

Siggi’s Vanilla Yogurt
I am excited about this one in particular. How many times I’ve tried to find a yogurt without the sugar and high carbs and my choice is limited to plain yogurt. Siggi’s has less than 9 g of sugar per serving and it’s vanilla! This Icelandic skyr (similar to Greek yogurt) has a smooth, creamy vanilla taste.
