Today's post is brought to you by the letter U. U stands for Udi's. I was just packing Sugar's lunch box and realized that I haven't reposted my first GF Udi's experience for my fellow GF friends who may not have discovered this little gem of GF goodness....

Don't look at me like that.
You've been so good to me over the years. You've always been there....in my lunchbox growing up, a staple when I was a starving college student, and the best picnic lunch EVER with my family.
You didn't deserve this. It's just that celiac came along and complicated everything.
Come on, give me a break.
I tried lots of different store bought breads. Sure, I found one that would suffice...but it has to be toasted...and, sometimes, that's just a pain. I have a bread recipe that we like too, but it doesn't help when I realize I forgot to make bread 15 minutes before Sugar is due to eat lunch at school. Besides, I kind of like the convenience of a versatile loaf of pre-sliced sandwich bread. Does that make me a bad person????
Look. I never gave up on you. But, I think I've finally found the bread we've been looking for...
I heard about it from a friend yesterday. I was skeptical, but went ahead and skipped Zumba this morning to drive across town to Sprout's so I could pick up a loaf. When I got there, they were almost out! Word travels fast, I guess. I picked up an extra, just in case.
A convenient gluten free bread that you thaw on the counter and then it stays fresh for 5 - 7 days? A gluten free bread that doesn't require microwaving or toasting to keep it soft? A gluten free bread that feels light and airy as opposed to heavy and dense?
Is it possible?
I do believe so. My goodness...lunch was fantastic today. Wouldn't you agree?
