Summary:

With convenience being a necessity in our ever so busy lifestyle these days, it's no surprise people struggle most with a gluten free diet when it comes to snacking. Never fear though, Udi's are here! They have a vast array of gluten free alternatives to societies tastiest addictions, with these maple pecan chocolate chip cookies being a prime example. I was a huge fan of Maryland Chocolate Chip Cookies a few years ago and these are a fine substitute. With organic dark chocolate chips and a great blend of tapioca starch and brown rice flour, these cookies are a well deserved treat for anybody trying to recharge after a lengthy day at the office. I typically find mine in the natural aisle at Superstore, but they can be found in various grocery stores throughout Canada (see their website for more details). Although store bought gluten free breads are dubious, this sweet treat melts in your mouth and, if you ask me, tastes better than those tiny, unsatisfying counterparts from Maryland.

Holidays, or vacations, are perhaps the first place your mind goes to when you think of the word “recharging”. The summer months are a time that most look forward to, as we speak I know at least a dozen people that are on holiday elsewhere in Canada or beyond. Having said this, everybody has a place, ritual or activity that helps them recharge, and if your childhood was anything like mine, going abroad with your family is more akin to a 9to5 job than a relaxing getaway.

With fond memories of taking the wrong exit leaving Universal Studios and ending up on a 3 hour “scenic route” as my Dad fondly put it. Or how about that one time my cousin accidentally closed the door of our rental Pontiac Sunfire (it had a spoiler too, we were too cool) on my Dad’s thumb in Florida Mall carpark? Oh and how could I forget all those years sleeping in the same hotel room as my parents? I love them dearly but no amount of love can plug my ears enough to mute their snoring! Together they made for an interesting, almost experimental, symphony in Barbados. On a more serious note, there actually have been some astounding memories made on holiday with my family, but as my Dad always put it: “You need a holiday to get over the holiday”.

Instead of relying on removing myself from a situation or routine to recharge, I’m much more focused, reliant and appreciative of adapting my routine and utilising what I have around me to recharge on a daily basis. I can’t imagine burning myself out for 6 months of the year only to hang all of my hopes up on a 2 week getaway, no matter how nice it would almost definitely be. No human can recharge themselves in 2 weeks (if you can, please teach me!).

As this is the Elevenses food blog, I must confess that one way I look after myself and ensure I don’t lose my marbles is with snacks! Going through 3 rounds of hormonal and amino acid testing and having Jacqui as a partner has helped me move toward a gluten free diet that helps both my brain and my guts, some may imagine that this makes snacking tricky.. or that all store bought gluten free stuff tastes like crap. Never fear, snacking Nat the snacker is here to bring you hope, salvation and a sure fire way to get cavities without gluten! Such salvation comes in the form of Udi’s range of gluten free cookies.
