If you’ve been following The Spicy RD blog for awhile, you’re probably familiar with my nutrition philosophy

No one diet fits all, but a healthy diet is built upon whole fresh, minimally processed ingredients, with room to enjoy your favorite foods. Life’s to short not to eat the damn cookie!

Or, a delicious slice of bread for that matter.

For the most part, I tend to make/bake most of my gluten free desserts and baked goods. For one, it saves me money, and, two, I’m much less likely to overindulge in treats this way.

It’s a win, win.

But, one thing I don’t bake {usually} is gluten free yeast bread, mainly, because I don’t have the time. One day, when my kids are out of the house, and I have more free time on my hands, I’d love to experiment with baking gluten free bread.

One day…

For now, I’m happy that there are so many tasty bread options, like this Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free bread, for the celiac and gluten free community, as this hasn’t always been the case.

#AD My family and I love this Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free Bread because it tastes delicious, and has a great texture, even when it's not toasted. You can find it in "stay fresh" packaging now too, so it will keep well in your pantry for up to 90 days. P.S. It's also free of: dairy, nut, soy, casein, preservatives, & artificial flavors/colors/sweeteners.

Not only is Canyon Bakehouse Bread certified gluten free, it’s also free of: dairy/soy/nut/casein/preservatives, artificial flavors/colors/sweeteners, and is GMO free.

What I like most about Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free bread, is that it doesn’t have to be toasted to taste good, like so many other gluten free breads do. This makes it perfect for sandwiches, especially for Big Tex as he’s been following a gluten free diet for the past month to see if it helps him with his “off and on” stomach aches.

I recently had him tested for celiac disease, since I carry the gene. He tested negative {like me}, but decided he wanted to do a gluten free diet trial, and, so far, it really seems to have helped, not only with his stomach aches, but he seems less moody {for a 14 year old teenager anyways!} & his acne is clearing up a little too.

Important: If you suspect your child has a sensitivity to gluten, ALWAYS ask their doctor to have her/him tested for celiac disease before starting a gluten free diet, as gluten needs to be in the diet for the blood test to be accurate.
