GLUTEN-FREE picks for Drinks & Dessert

The 4th of July and a three day weekend has arrived.  Growing up in Chicago watching the fireworks on the lakefront was something I looked forward to every year.  This year now that I live in LA, I will be down in the marina, sitting by the ocean with friends enjoying a whole new fireworks experience.

What also goes along with the 4th and a three day weekend? Food, Drinks and lots of it.  So here are my favorite drink & dessert picks for the weekend.  To find recipe just click on photo. Enjoy.

Hi, I’m Kirsten

Kirsten is a Registered Dietician in training and a Gluten Free Nutrition Consultant. She has a Bachelors from Illinois State and is working on her Masters in Nutrition at Metropolitan State University in Denver, CO. After graduation she will continue her clinical training and Registered Dietician certification.

Her goal is to provide a path for healthy living to individuals who are seeking a tailored made lifestyle specific to them another needs. Kirsten believes that everyone is different and no one diet can work for everyone, which is why fad diets rarely work for the long haul.

Kirsten also works to make the lives easier and healthier for those with Celiac disease through education and specific tools that have helped her navigate celiac and the gluten free lifestyle maze.

Living the gluten free lifestyle is not an easy one and can be very overwhelming: from testing to grocery shopping, to eating out and deglutening your own household, I am here to walk you through the process from beginning to end. With tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and sometimes just an understanding ear, I will guide you seamlessly through.

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2010, so I understand completely the trials and tribulations of living the gluten free lifestyle. Please contact me for more information @ glutenfreegal1@gmail.com
