Last weekend I had the pleasure of representing Rudi’s Gluten Free Breads at the Atlanta Gluten Free Vendor Fair.
It truly was such an amazing experience to meet folks of all ages who live with celiac disease and gluten-intolerance. I loved meeting and helping everyone from the little children to the elderly… showing them the delicious ways to enjoy Rudi’s Gluten Free Breads. It was great to connect with these folks and share with them my gluten-intolerance and struggles with avoiding ‘Gluten’…I received amazing feedback on the Rudi’s Bread texture, consistency and flavor. The crowd was honestly going wild over the bread…”It tastes just like regular bread”… “This is too good to be true”…”I can’t wait to buy a loaf and finally enjoy a ‘normal’ sandwich again”…These are just a few quotes that I heard and jotted down to share with all of you.
I displayed Rudi’s 3 yummy gluten-free breads and served them toasted with dairy-free butter and jam, but many people enjoyed poppin’ a piece of good ol’ Rudi’s right into their mouth-plain and simple…no if and’s or buts, this bread tastes delicious even without the condiments. Now, how about that for a Gluten Free bread? Rudi’s surely is tough to beat in my book and I have not yet come across a better bread…
Let’s just say, “Baked on the Bright Side” is exactly what you get in every bite…a touch of sunlight, warmth, trust and quality gluten-free bread…that’s enough for me to smile about…and boy o’ boy am I smilin’ when I’m eatin’ Rudi’s, hehe…
Who doesn’t want a bit of the ‘Bright Side’ in their lives…or meals? I surely do and that’s what Rudi’s is to Me…a simple, trustworthy bite of sunshine.
Rudi’s has flavor…it has pizazzz…a nice chewy texture and a ‘normal’ bread-like consistency…it doesn’t break apart easily as many other gluten-free breads do…and therefore it can be enjoyed as a sammie, with an omelet or as a dessert bread puddin’!
Rudi’s Gluten-Free Breads are available in the freezer section of your grocery store in 3 fabulous flavors:
So, what’s my favorite? Oooo … That’s a toughy…It’s hard to choose as they’re all so tasty in different ways…I love the Multigrain when making a sandwich, the Original for making toast with eggs or a spread of jam and the Cinnamon Raisin for Fresh toast or simply just toasted with a dollop of nut butter and a drizzle of honey…
Here is a great video clip from the fair of a woman who “loves” Rudi’s!
Thank you, Rudi’s for this amazing opportunity as I could do this every weekend!
It was a ‘delicious gluten-free’ blast…
And, speaking of delicious, here is one of my favorite Rudi’s Gluten-Free Recipes:
Coco-Cinnamon Raisin Bread Pudding
- 5 slices Rudi’s Cinnamon Raisin Gluten-Free Bread, torn into pieces
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup rice milk
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup raw cacao powder
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
- ¼ cup macadamia nuts, ground in food processor
- 1/4 cup fresh basil, very finely chopped
- 1 ounce semisweet chocolate chips
- Topping: Greek plain yogurt
- Topping: Fresh mint leaves
- Topping: Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Spread bread pieces in the dish in an even layer.
- Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Add rice milk, sugar, raw cacao, chili powder, vanilla and cinnamon; whisk the mixture until the sugar and cocoa dissolve. Pour the cocoa mixture over the bread. Mix in any un-soaked bread pieces. Sprinkle ground macadamia nuts, basil and chocolate over the top and let stand for 15 minutes.
- Bake until golden brown, puffed and set in the middle, about 45 minutes. Serve warm, with a scoop of Greek yogurt, a fresh mint leaf and a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut on top.
