Stabilyze Bars

Behind The Name: Stabilyze & Stabilizing Blood Sugar Levels

We've featured Stabilyze nutrition bars before, but you might have thought the name was a little unique for a bar. What's behind the name?...

Gluten Free Bagel Roundup

Readers often ask us about gluten-free bagels—and no wonder. Anyone living gluten-free has likely endured some serious bagel hankering. Fortunately, there are now options available in many grocery stores across the country. Most of these commercial brands come frozen and are best when toasted. A precious few gluten-free bakeries make fresh bagels in-house—arguably worth some vacation time-off to travel for carbs.
new Cascadia traditional

New Cascadia Traditional

These bagels are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, just like a beautiful New York bagel. We recommend them enthusiastically. They deserve rave reviews. Until recently, you had to travel to Portland, Oregon, to taste them. New Cascadia now ships its bagels, baguettes and breads to your door (for a pretty penny).
trader Joes gluten-free bagels

Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Bagels

These store-brand bagels are remarkably similar to Udi’s, with a slightly crunchy outside and a soft bready texture on the inside. They’re less expensive than most mainstream bagel brands. If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, you’re in luck.
The Greater Knead bagels

The Greater Knead Bagels (formerly Sweet Note Bagels)

We love the taste of these bagels. They’re chewy with just a touch of sweetness from the sorghum flour. The Greater Knead is available in select markets across the United States.
UDI's gluten free bagels

Udi’s Gluten Free Bagels

Widely distributed, Udi’s bagels are available in grocery stores across the country, as well as in many restaurants and hotels. Very good when toasted, these bagels are a staple in our kitchen.
New Grains gluten free bagels

New Grains Gluten Free Bagels

These New Grains bagels are fluffy, a bit like hamburger buns. Wonderful flavor. Available in select markets in Utah. A must-have if you’re anywhere near Salt Lake City.
canyon bakehouse plain bagels

Canyon Bakehouse Bagels

We love the taste of these chewy bagels, with a hint of sorghum sweetness. Unfortunately, they’re not as widely available as Canyon Bakehouse’s high-quality bread. Look for these bagels in the refrigerated or frozen section or on bakery shelves in their stay-fresh shelf-stable packaging.
bedrock Bakers paleo bagels

Bedrock Bakers Bagels (Paleo)

There are only a handful of paleo bagel brands and they’re not widely available. These bagels from Bedrock Bakers are standouts, available online. Cassava flour and almond flour produce a mild-tasting “pagel” that might easily be mistaken for a grain-filled bagel. We only wish these bagels were bigger and less expensive to ship.

"Oh, how I wish my doctors had told me about the psycho-social impact of celiac disease—social isolation, anxiety, depression. People stop inviting you to potlucks, lunch with friends, dinner celebrations and neighborhood gatherings because they don’t know how to deal with your dietary issues. Gluten Free and More helps me deal with these issues. But it really takes internal fortitude to push through the isolation and step out the front door."
