A Cookie Lover's Saving Grace

Gluten free cookies are a great way to lose weight and enjoy sweets. Personally, I know that when I get home and eat dinner after a long day of work, I like to satisfy my sweet tooth. The thing is, I really need to lose some weight, and cookies aren’t the best way to do so. That’s why I’ve been indulging in Josef’s delicious treats.

These cookies are light and delicious. And did I mention that there are numerous varieties? There are chocolate and vanilla animal gluten free cookies, square wheat free cookies of the chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon varieties, and Crème Sandwich O’s also come in chocolate, vanilla or cinnamon.

Oh cookies, when I’m lonely and I need someone to help me, you’re there. When I’m sad and I’ve got the blues, you sing along. When I’m exhausted from a long work week, you soak my feet and give me a back massage (figuratively of course). What would I do without you?

If only I could restrict the rest of my diet to be gluten free. Unfortunately, some of my favorite foods are cornbread, pasta, and potatoes. Heavy, carby foods that make me pudgy. But hey, at least my dessert fix is satiated.

Gluten Free Cookies Are For Everyone!

A Cookie History

Cookies began around 1400 years ago in Persia when sugar became available. They spread to Europe through the Muslim conquest of Spain and continued to increase in popularity due to their durability. The first ones were a mixture of nuts, sweetener and water, and were called ‘jumbles.’

Cookies sailed with the Pilgrims on the Mayflower, but the word cookie the English anglicized from the Dutch settlers who ate “koekjes.” The macaroon and gingerbread cookies were arguably the most popular until the 20th century when the chocolate chip was invented. The inventor was Ruth Graves Wakefield a native New Englander, who ran an actual toll house. Lacking a special ingredient one day, and thinking that the chocolate would spread throughout her batter, she chopped some semi-sweet chocolate and sprinkled it in her mix. The chocolate surprisingly held its shape and created a sensation as the Toll House Crunch Cookie.

Today, one of the most popular cookies is a gluten free snack. Wheat free cookies are a healthy alternative to the fatty and caloric flour based cookies that have predominated the cookie landscape over the years. Gluten free cookies are changing the cookie scene and are just as delicious as any of the others out there. So get your wheat free cookies today!

Josef’s Wheat Free Cookies – A Way To Indulge Healthily

There’s a new movement taking hold. You’ve probably seen it in grocery stores and around town. It’s a return to the earth for what we eat and it can be defined by a simple phrase: “Only eat it if it’s a plant, or if it wasn’t made in one.”

Now, if you’re like me, you have a bad sweet tooth. And it’s hard to find snacks and cookies that don’t have preservatives and chemicals in them. So I’ve tried looking for other ways to indulge, healthily. Pickings have been slim. But then I discovered Josef’s gluten free cookies. Never did I imagine that a delicious snack could be wheat free cookies, but lo and behold, Josef’s has come to my rescue. Not only do Josef’s gluten free cookies not have any preservatives, but they’re vegan and nut free too, so my friends (a vegan and a peanut-allergic) can enjoy them with me.

And talk about tasty. Josef’s wheat free cookies are divine. They melt in your mouth. And I can have as many as I want! Because they’re actually good for you. I try to limit myself to about half a bag a day, and I’m doing a good job. It’s all thanks to Josef and his gluten free cookies.

A Gluten Free Snack Doesn't Have To Be Taste Free

Gluten free products are gaining in popularity not only for the gluten intolerant and gluten sensitive, but also for people who desire a healthier lifestyle. No longer is it difficult for people to find tasty snacks and desserts that are gluten free and/or wheat free. Now, gluten free cookies can be found in most supermarkets as more and more people are eliminating or reducing gluten and wheat from their diets. This has created a demand for more variety of gluten-free baked goods and baking ingredients.

Gluten is a composite protein comprised of gliadin and glutenin. It is primarily found in wheat, barley, and rye. Gluten is what gives baked goods their chewy, flaky, or doughy texture. Luckily, there are alternatives like rice, corn, and other ingredients that can replace gluten in baked goods without replacing taste.

There is a wide variety of gluten free cookies, wheat free cookies and gluten free crackers that nearly equal the flavor selections of the gluten laden ones. Gluten free crackers for example, make a convenient, easy, and satisfying gluten free snack.

If you prefer fresh baked goods, search for a local gluten free bakery in your area. This is a great place to go for holiday desserts. For those that like to bake, there is a variety of wheat/gluten free flours available.

And true, it can be challenging to maintain a gluten free diet. However, the diverse availability of tasty gluten free cookies, crackers and other baked goods certainly makes it a little easier.
