REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - Van's Natural Foods with Wheat/Gluten Free options


One could only imagine how I felt when I found out my son was allergic to so many things, unless of course you can relate...  A million thoughts racing through my mind, thinking how horrible, and impossible it all seemed.  I lost countless nights awake night after night researching all that I can find to help us.  Overtime I have learned to accept and live with it, as well as highlight what I can find to be positive living with food allergies.  The feeling of joy and excitement never changes when we find something we can all eat as a family, whether it is something I found in the store or something new we have created.  I can't put into words the excitement I felt when I saw Van's Natural Foods Wheat/Gluten Free line of products, and when we tried it..well, I can still feel the excitement with every bite today!

bananas..ate it before I got to take final pic!
Initially I really didn't know if my son will ever have Waffles, or even French Toast Sticks in the morning like any other child.  I have learned that lots are possible even with many restrictions.  Food allergic toddler and family with no allergies, we all love Van's Natural Foods products.  

Many varieties of Waffles are offered, among them the Wheat/Gluten Free line flavors include All Natural, Blueberry, Apple Cinnamon, Buckwheat, Flax, and even cute small waffles; Minis All Natural.  An example of why we love them, on top of being delicious, the ingredients that most everyone can love and enjoy for the All Natural Wheat/Gluten Free Waffles are:
I love simple and natural! :)  They should be "PROUD."
We have tried the Wheat/Gluten Free Cinnamon French Toast Sticks, which are also great!  My son had his first "bread and butter" with these!  :)  You can have it in so many ways, just like the waffles, we have had it for breakfast with fruits on the side, with dairy free butter, with powdered sugar, with ice cream on the side as a dessert..so many delicious ways!  They are a great on-the-go snack too, I toast them, sprinkle some powdered sugar, and it is an instant sweet treat later on!    
It is a guarantee that you will always find frozen Van's Natural Foods waffles and french toast sticks in our fridge, unless you catch us in between stocking up ;)  Even though my primary reason for loving this product line is because my son can have them, it is very much because they are all natural, and truly delicious for anyone as well, total win win!  I don't have to worry about serving these to anyone in thought that they might not like it because it is wheat/gluten free, dairy, and egg free.  It totally has been tested, and everyone seems to really like them.  

I really do recommend you give these a try, confident you'll love it, if you don't have any dietary restrictions try their other varieties, including English Muffins, Muffin Crowns, Pancakes, as well as French Toast Sticks and Waffles.  If you have a friend/family member that has restrictions surprise them with the ones they can have, they'd love you for it! :)  I always say this, because I personally think it would be nice.  Oh and we don't just have these for breakfast, when food is good, they are good anytime here. ;)  Find out more about Van's Natural Foods, and where you can purchase them here.
