SplendorPath.com Newsletter


Calling all Gluten-free Support!

I have enjoyed doing this facebook pg now for 1 yr & 7 months, helping people in our Gluten free Kingwood classes, & even meeting moms at the grocery store to go shopping. This is the reason I started SplendorPath.com ... to help people in a way that doesn't take so much time from my own family, but can help a large amount of people all at one time. I hear over and over again, "what can I eat now" or "I coundn't do that", "my kids would never eat that"..... or I hear about how they just give in because they don't know where to start. I just can't sleep at night knowing that....so thats' what drives me. I know what can happen if someone doesn't stick to the GF diet when they need to & I also know how health can come from this GF lifestyle. We have lived it....& still are everyday! My family is proof of what a GF lifestyle can do! I want them to be able to experience the health we have seen.

Now I know many of you are already GF and many have a routine down & you don't feel like you need this plan....but I challenged you to think of what we can accomplish by getting SplendorPath.com off the ground. There are so many people out there that need this where they are....most people aren't already eating healthy, most don't know what gluten is, most people are not going to take control of this issue if they don't know where to start. I urge you to help me in this matter....I really want it to work! So let me give you some bullet points about the GF meal plans!

■anyone can use it (GF/GFCF/Non-GF)

■basis for every meal is always fresh meats, veggies, fruit

■directions are simple & easy to use

■comes w/ a organized shopping list to use at any grocery store

■low price point ($1.49 per week) you will save more than that, just by following the plan.

■each recipe is developed by a mom of a celiac family

■you get 65+ GF recipes w/ no repeats & can continue on ...if you like

■you get the care & concern of a mom that really knows what this can do for a family

■meals are balanced & family friendly

I am asking you to support me by purchasing this meal plan to help other families. Look at it as a $17.99 investment in someone's health....whether it be your own or just so that we are able to reach someone else. It is less than $20 and Who couldn't use a GF recipe meal plan to help with dinner! I have seen this business model work for non-gluten free meal plans, but We have the potential to make it work for the Gluten-Free community! All I need is buzz about what we are trying to do....please help me in this matter by ordering (you will see how awesome it is)! Once you see with your own eyes & tummies ....you will gladly want to spread the word! Please support me in this matter!

Thank you for taking the time to read this,

1 c fava bean flour (bob's red mill)
1 c brown rice flour (i used x-tra fine)
3/4 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 stick unsalted butter (I used dairy free)
1/2 c organic granulated sugar

mix first five ing. together, Cream butter sugar & honey & beat 'till fluffy (or at least creamy), about 5 mins. add peanut butter & blend, slowly add dry ingredients. allow dough to sit for 1 hour before baking.
preheat oven 350 degrees. line cookie sheet w/ parchment paper.
using a small ice cream scooper or a melon baller, scoop a ball of dough & roll in sugar, then place on cookie sheet. using the tines of the fork, press cookie slightly to flaten & turn fork & press again to get that peanut butter cookie look that we remember from when we were kids.  Bake for 8-10 minutes. they will seem underbaked, but no worries they will be perfect. Don't overcook....they dry out easily.
Come Eat!
