Happy September (almost October) everyone! This month kicks off my favorite season: Fall. While I love getting my tan on in the summer and sipping on margaritas by the pool, Fall is hands down my favorite season. What does Fall mean to me? Running outside because it’s not too hot or too cold, pumpkin everything, driving with the windows down, football, apple pies, wearing big sweaters and riding boots, apple picking, baking and cooking for Thanksgiving, and spending time with family and friends.

88 acres snack bars: Believe it or not, one of my colleagues Tim introduced me to these bars a few years ago. He knew that I ate gluten free and shared some of his samples with me. Why am I tell you this story? Because Tim is actually friends with the founders of these amazing bars! I remember trying these when they were shared in waxed paper, and now they are being sold in stores and online! I was browsing around in a local supermarket in Maine, when I came across these bars. I was so excited to see them, I bought about 5 to take with me. My favorite favor is Apple & Ginger. Get job guys!

Abby Lane Food & Spirits: I am so impressed by the amount of gluten free options this restaurant offers. Nachos, pizza, burgers, sides, entrees – so many things to choose from. The service was great and the drinks weren’t too shabby either. Thank you for having so many GF options I can indulge in. My friend and I stopped here before seeing a show across the street. If you are visiting the Boston Theatre District soon, I highly recommend this place. Make sure to make a reservation as it seems to get busy on the weekends.

Doggy Delirious Natural Dog Treats: Woof Woof, Shelby loves her new treats. I purchased these treats off of ThriveMarket (I think Shelby was getting mad because I kept placing orders, but never got her anything!). Why did I get the pumpkin flavor you ask? It’s Fall silly!

Gluten Free Oatmeal Cups from Bob’s Red Mill: From working out to getting ready for work to heading out the door, I’m usually moving pretty quickly in the morning, but I always make time for breakfast. There new Bob’s Red Mill GF oatmeals cups are my new favorite go-to.  The apple flavor is definitely my favorite; I’ve even been cutting up an extra apple to add to my cup.
