Keeping it REAL

I pride myself on keeping my thoughts, posts and actions within the food allergy world real and true to my word. Many people do not but I also tend to gravitate to others that hold the same ideals. To me, my word is what portrays me within our community and if I cannot be honest, then I cannot truly feel as if I am helping properly. Today, I wanted to celebrate that passion by giving back to all of you with the help of another truly awesome member within the food allergy world.

For Real?
By now, all of you know I love to host giveaways because (without ALL of you) I would not be where I am and I will always appreciate that. Being a fellow food allergy parent, I understand how difficult it can be working on a budget and trying to nourish your family with a safe product. I also know how hard it can be to find those products that are safe and taste good too. What better way to show all of you love, give you a chance to win some items and have it be from a truly dedicated person as well. I am talking about Jules Shepard and her oober-awesome company gfJules

The REAL Jules
Here's where it gets a little tricky- awhile back, Jules Shepard began to go through an ordeal that nobody should ever have to go through. She put her heart and gluten free soul into starting her company and it was, well, simply taken without her permission. I am asking ALL of you to help her out to show her how much we appreciate her products and need them. (In case you are fuzzy on the details, view the post that GlutenDude shared)

REALLY- It's Time So Enter NOW!
It's a short & sweet giveaway so make sure you enter, share, tweet and do your magic to get extra entries while also helping out Jules (the REAL Jules).

1 winner will receive (1) 1.5 pound box of gfJules Flour & (1) Mix of your choice
*FYI, I made her Gluten Free Brownie Mix for the first annual Muffin Throw Down- yum! I added 1 pureed avocado, 1 4-oz applesauce, Ener-G Powdered Egg Replacer and I topped it with warmed, drizzled SunButter and Enjoy Life Foods chocolate chips.

Want To Really Help?
If you appreciate Jules Shepard, you can show her extra love too! How can we do this? Easy-

  • Go to gfJules to subscribe as well as linking up on her other media sites & make sure you tell her how much you appreciate her (we all like to hear that!)
  • Spread the word- share with others to let them know who the REAL gfJules is
  • Make your opinion known to the other company that you no longer support them! Go to unsubscribe, unlink and tell them why you don't want to be a part of their company anymore 
  • Always make sure you look for the gfJules logo to ensure you are getting the REAL products that you love and deserve 


  1. I have been gluten free for a little over a year and during this time have tried several different brands of flour and mixes. I was disappointed by most and a couple were just "okay". I heard about gfJules on twitter and was able to score a free sample. I made some blueberry muffins and was in heaven. I didn't think it was possible but I actually found a GF flour that is actually better than non-GF varieties I used to use. It's a great product!

    1. We feel exactly the same way :)

  2. I haven't tried this brand yet, but I have read that it's a great brand.

    1. Yes, this brand is a MUST TRY! Just make sure you get the REAL GF Jules ;)

  3. I've been dying to try this brand!

    1. Good luck (but even if you don't win, make sure you check out her page for other giveaways & deals!) :)
