Nima Gluten and Peanut Portable Sensor Review and Interview

When I first heard of this device, I thought it was too good to be true, but turns out… IT IS TRUE AND IT IS GOOD. I took it to task with a blueberry rice muffin from a local natural food store. Although they don’t specify ‘gluten free’ on the label, all of the ingredients are gluten free. But as we know, considering the muffins are in their fresh-bakery section, there is real risk for cross-contamination. Using Nima is as easy as 1-2-3, literally. It’s a 3-step process. You can be confident it works, knowing the National Institute of Health (NIH) backs it up and that it can detect at little as 20ppm of gluten. As a bonus, it’s FSA/HSA reimbursable, to cover the cost of the capsules!

This includes their many types of meat, cheeses, hummus spreads, and condiments. I also love that I can recognize and pronounce every listed ingredient. I decided to try and review a smorgasbord of their products. Here are my thoughts…

10 Best Gluten-Free / POTS Friendly Travel Snacks

Seldom do I leave the house without having at least a few snacks with me. Celiac Disease, on top of POTS (aka I need a lot of salt to maintain healthy blood pressure), requires salty, nutritious snacks, and quite a bit of fluid to maintain a healthy blood volume. When traveling, a decent portion of space is dedicated to both my carry-on and regular suitcase just for snacks. The carry-on snacks keep me moving, in case there is no food to meet my dietary restrictions in the airport, and/or on the plane. The snacks in my suitcase are useful, especially if I don’t know what the food will be like where I am going. These also serve as a great backup option in case I need to get my calories in or simply have a craving for one of these delicious snacks:
