Healthy Gluten Free Snacks – It’s not a Typo
Gluten free snacks and packaged foods have traditionally been made with refined starches and other “stuff”. They may have filled a need, more psychological than physical, but they offered little in the way of nutrients. That has changed a lot in the last several years.

Gluten free snacks can now be nutrient dense and tasty. They can satisfy both the psychological and physical need for “good” food. They can be Sheffa!
