A city girl becomes Bitter Betty Crocker. What? That’s right, I’m
still bitter after 5 years on the GFCF job. What fans my flames you
may ask? Every fricken phone call to a food company. Every
fricken email. Every fricken label I’ve read 3 times. The
McDonalds latest incident. Need I say more?
I do cook a lot, bake some. And I do eat out about 2 times per
week for Mexican, Chinese, or to the local diner for a burger and
fries (no hotdog because their brand has dairy).
Here are some of our favorite HFS brands that keep us alive:
Pancakes: Authentic Foods pancake mix Flour: Red Hill, Betty Hagman’s Four Flour Blend Roll-Out Cookies: Cause Your Special Cake Mix: Cause Your Special Chicken Nuggets: frozen Wellshire Kids or better tasting Bell &
Evans GF frozen Chicken Tenders. I even like them! And yes, they
are CF too. Fries: frozen Cascadian Farms (we must like them even though
they are owned by the evil General Mills) Donuts, bagels, frozen pizza crust: Kinnikinnick.com Granola bars and cereals: Envirokids: Koala, Panda, and Lemur Cookies!Vanilla oreos, chocolate oreos, and animal crackers:
Kinnikinnick.com or MiDel Canned Frosting: artificial is our friend when we have no time:
Pillsbury. Currently, Betty Crocker is evil, and natch they are
owned by the evil General Mills empire. Those that give a shit they
market to children and provide food chock full of the big 5
allergens. Nice. Candy: certain flavor Starbursts, Skittles, sweetarts, trident
gum. Chips: Other than HFS brands like Bearitos, my hats off to Frito-
Lay for providing a comprehensive allergy page. Fritos are safe
and delish. Cape Cod Potato Chips are our fave, also because
they come in individual snack size perfect for school. Pasta: Tinkyada organic brown rice pasta. Quinoa pasta. Cheese: Tofutti sliced Yogurt: Silk or Whole Soy. Frozen fruits: Cascadian farms, great for smoothies (water, ice,
coconut, strawberry, blueberry, mango, pineapple), and you’re
good to go. Perfect for supplements! Favorite car snacks: roasted and salted cashews and almonds.
Fresh apples, pears, oranges. Cheese: Tofutti sliced - white and orange "flavors"
