Gluten Free Has Options That Will Astound

Summer is here and one of the hardest things to adjust to is a gluten free diet. Going to a barbecue or picnic is painful as firms indulge in what you can not have. Suddenly bread, pizza, cookies and cakes are off limits. Snacks and treats have you wanting to cheat especially when you are craving salty and sweet. T2C has discovered the perfect gluten free healthy snacks that will make you jump for joy.

Cello Whisps

The perfect alternative for cheesy bread and pizza is Cello’s parmesan cheese crisps called Whisps. Made from just one wholesome ingredient. Cello’s award-winning Copper Kettle Parmesan cheese is baked into a flavorful, airy, crispy — whispy! — bite. Cello Parmesan Whisps are made only of Parmesan cheese aged over 14 months, nothing else. It is an excellent source of protein and calcium. Eat them with a glass of wine or bring them to a restaurant and you will not feel as if you are missing out on the bread. This our must have snack. Costco sells this snack at $9.79 for 9.5 ounce in a resalable bag. www.cellowhisps.com
