Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Okay, I may look Irish, but I am not! Not all red-heads are Irish! I am just a mixed UK/French mut! I do have green eyes, so nobody is allowed to pinch me!;P

This holiday is fun and I love the food and Beer! This is not the day to cheat on gluten! Remember, gluten antibodies stay in the body for 6 weeks!!!!! There are so many good gluten-free beers now, but you need to know the facts. There are beers that are labeled “gluten-free”, but they are actually gluten-low because the producers start with a gluten grain(barley, wheat, spelt, rye) and throw a bunch of enzymes to “remove gluten”, but they cannot accurately measure how much gluten is left over! This is not safe in my opinion.

We really like sorghum beers and a few brands we love are Glutenberg, Redbridge and Greens and they all have several varieties(ale, IPA, dark & lager) which you can find in health food stores and some bars and restaurants. If you really have no other options when you are out partying, Corona light claims to be gluten-free. See my post on gluten-free alcohol for safe spirits.

Please remember to either not drink at all and drive or take UBER or LYFT or have a designated driver. The legal limit is very low on breath allizer tests…only one drink an hour can find you legally drunk with a DUI and yourself in Jail!!! No drunk person ever thinks they shouldn’t drive! It is so not worth ruining your life, or killing someone else, for that lousy beer or drink! Have fun safely is my motto! You are special and here for a reason, so please stay safe.

Now for the best part….the food! My house smells so good right now….I’ve got Irish Stew in the crockpot and Irish Soda Bread in the oven, and yes Glutenberg and Greens beer chillin sans/senza green food coloring! Click for the recipes https://wordpress.com/page/nowheatnodairynoproblem.com/36
