If you recently discovered that you have a gluten sensitivity – don’t panic: you have options.
Full Disclosure: I got paid to write the article with #FisherNutExactly #ad ,
but my opinion, gluten sensitivity, and a delicious party bowl are 100% real
What do you love best about the summer? Is it about spending more time as a family? Travel New outdoor restaurants? This is the time to really enjoy the life and make new discoveries (at least from my standpoint)
However, living in the moment can be exhausting – my 7-year old wants me to carry her out of the car when she comes back from the day camp and my 6-year old refuses to play outside, because he is tired (that never happens!). And I am tired myself – I just want to kick back and relax once in a while!
How about watching a perfect summer movie? I’ve discovered that between Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon, there is always something I can find on the big screen.
My personal summer shows and movie recommendations?
As much as I love watching shows one episode in time, binge watching is the best!
Movies to Watch without Kids:
- Drop Dead Dive
- Royal Pains
- Orange is a New Black
- Young and Hungry
Movies to Watch with Kids
- The Croods, because it is lots of fun
- Hugo, because it is just a great movie to watch
- The Karate Kid, because the kids will enjoy it and you can examine the remake from your prospective
- Back to The Future, because it is only the best movie ever!
How about the snack that will keep everyone happy. While the kids are excited to have a pizza, chips or just about anything in a bag, I have to say “No, thank You!” to most of entertainment food choices due to my gluten sensitivity. It doesn’t seem fair, but the gluten thing drastically narrows down my snack choices and makes going out or staying in less enjoyable.
Meet my newest discovery – Fisher Nut Exactly™ snack bites! I have realized that I am perfectly capable of eating the entire bag of these in 2-3 evenings, which sounds delicious to me, but might not be fair to the rest of my family. The first snack of its kind, Fisher Nut Exactly is a combination of roasted almonds, blueberries, pumpkin seeds and whole grain popcorn, rolled into a bite sized snack that’s dipped in rich dark chocolate. That is why today we are making a perfect gluten free summer snack bowl staring this little cluster just in time for the next family movie night.
Step 1: The Bowl
Find the perfect bowl! The choice is very important – you want it to be big enough, because you don’t want to run back in forth (let’s face it, you will be expected to go to the kitchen for the refill). Bright colors are best if you want to find it in a dark.
Step 2: Sweet and Savory and Crunchy
Fisher Nuts Exactly Snack Bites. They are a little bit chocolaty and a little bit nutty, but absolutely gluten free. Imagine chewing an almond, pumpkin seed, and blueberry clustered and dipped in dark chocolate… Did you like it? Congratulations, you just ate a Fisher Nut Exactly Snack Bite. Where can you get some more? Check out Costco (especially if you live in the Midwest) for the big 20 oz bag with 105 of little delicious clusters for the uniquely sweet & savory snack.
I am perfectly capable of doing some serious damage to this 20 Oz bag all on my own and that is why this party bowl needs another ingredient:
Set 3: Salty and Crunchy
Craving some salt in the mix? Add popcorn to your party bowl. It is salty and gluten free as well! The popcorn will provide a certain element of distraction, satisfy your taste buts for salt and will help to make a delicious gluten free party bowl less longer.
Step 4: Grand Finale
This is it! Your bowl is ready for the grand entrance – dig in and indulge!
Made with no artificial preservatives, Fisher Nut Exactly makes smart snacking easy.
