Announcing Simply Gluten Free – The Magazine (and a giveaway!)

Hello gluten-free people – there’s a new kid in town! Carol Kicinski, author of the blog Simply…Gluten-Free (and two great books, Simply…Gluten-Free Desserts and Simply…Gluten-Free Quick Meals, both of which I reviewed) has teamed up with Wendy Gregory Kaho of the blog Celiacs In The House, magazine editor and freelance writer, plus a group of twenty great gluten-free minds to create a new gluten-free magazine – Simply Gluten-Free – The Magazine!

Yes, that’s right – a magazine written by people living with food sensitivities, for people with food sensitivities, focusing on the simplicity of a gluten and allergen-free lifestyle. The magazine will center around the idea that allergen-free lifestyles are not complicated; rather, there is an abundance of delicious food made easily and simply.

Simply Gluten-Free – The Magazine will focus not only on special diets and recipes, but subjects such as homekeeping, beauty, travel, crafts, fitness, nutrition, medical, entertaining and eating out as well.

I don’t know about you, but as much as I love reading a multitude of blogs (and I do read a ton!), there’s just something about a shiny magazine in your hands. You can flip the pages, tuck it into your bag and take it with you, dog-ear the pages and gawk at the photography. I can’t wait to have my hands on the first issue!

Speaking of, the first issue will launch in November 2012, so it’ll be here soon. You can subscribe today, but I am also giving away a subscription to two of my readers!

To enter, simply leave me a comment telling me what you’d like to see in an issue of a magazine like Simply Gluten Free. That’s it! See, simple!

This giveaway will end at 11:59PM CDT on Saturday, August 25, 2012. The winners must be 18 and older. No purchase is necessary.  Odds of winning are based on the number of entries.  The winners will be randomly chosen and will be contacted by email.  The winners will have 48 hours to respond.  If the winner does not respond, a new winner will be randomly chosen.

Best of luck to you all! Of course, you can subscribe today for a 100% chance that you’ll receive your copies! Also, keep tabs on the latest with Simply Gluten Free – The Magazine by “liking” them on Facebook or following on Twitter!

    What a stellar idea! I would really love to see articles/interviews with endurance athletes who have seen vast improvements made when they switched to a gluten free diet. Being a triathlete I have learned that it’s not just about running, biking, and swimming. Nutrition and recovery are equally important.

  2. Laura says

    I would love to see a section on the best ways and places to travel gluten free as well as information on gluten free festivals/seminars/expos. I am always a fan of gluten free recipes including vegetarian.

    I would love to see an article discussing the best ways and places to travel gluten free (including internationally) as well as information on upcoming gluten free expos/seminars/events. Additionally, I always love good gluten free recipes including vegetarian.

    I’d love to get my hands on a copy of this magazine! What I’d really like to see is a gluten-free recipe for some sort of ramen-esque soup. Pasta and noodles have been the things that I’ve missed/craved the most, and while I’m familiar with corn & rice noodles, I’m always on the lookout for more gluten-free noodle ideas!

  5. Amy says

    I’d like to see easy GF meals for a crowd. We have extended family dinners each Sunday and it can be complicated to make GF options that appease our manly-men who don’t have gluten sensitivity and tend to prefer standards like grilled meat over “frou frou” things like quinoa salads.

  6. says

    I would love to see recipes using the grains we have to use but more in a salad or entree form rather than baking. This sounds like it’s going to be a great magazine.

  7. Denise M says

    a holiday issue with great recipes for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas. Plus how to eat gluten free and sugar free

  8. Peggy says

    Others have already mentioned some of my priorities:
    Traveling tips
    And I’d like to add:
    Healthier options (less white sugar desserts and more natural/nutritional sweet options, plus some gluten-free substitutes on the market just aren’t that good for you)

  9. Kelli V says

    Looking forward to this magazine!! Quick and easy recipes would be great, as would articles on various GF restaurants or GF friendly restaurants that are truly GF!! Healthy options that are sugar free, gluten free, dairy free would be nice on occasion too. And to repeat others it would be truly awesome to have some additional Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes to make!! Thanks!!

  10. Lois says

    I would love to see easy quick meals with not too many ingredients (if possible). I am gluten intolerant and diabetic as well, so I would like to see some breads and desserts that are sugar free or low glycemic.

  11. Sandra says

    I would like to see some healthy gluten free recipes for children and how they can involved in helping to make them.

  12. Kelly Schaefer says

    I am only 5 months into my new gluten free journey. Frankly, I am a sponge for all things related to helping me be successful. But, we are fastly approaching the holiday season. I need all the help I can get. But, I need these holiday-themed recipes to be easy and not all focused on baked goods. Many thanks!

    Great idea! Please, please, please have some info on the different types of gluten free flours out there and what in heck the difference is between them… are they interchangeable? I have so many small amounts left of all these flours due to different recipes that call for specific flours. I have skipped recipes entirely as I did not feel like driving to the health store (again) to pick up a specific type… and I was unsure if one of the other four to six types in my pantry would work! Even if it is not just an article, but part of the recipe: could the author of the recipe maybe state “if you do not have x flour, y or z work as well but may need to rise as much” for example. Hugely helpful to me!

  14. Jessen says

    Vegetarian Options would be terrific! My family does eat meat, but I’ve been trying to go 2 days a week vegetarian. . . But in creative ways so they don’t miss the meat.
    So far it’s worked, but more ideas would be helpful!

  15. Ashlee Brown says

    This is super! Being a single mother (employed more than full time at this point, eek!), I have very little time to cook during the weeknights & even on the weekends at times. I would love to see quick, simple recipes with very few ingredients. It might also help to have information on inexpensive gluten-free products or resources for coupons to purchase such products. Single mommies are always looking for ways to save a buck!

  16. Victoria says

    It would be wonderful if Simply Gluten Free Magazine were to include recipes for international dishes — for example, truly gluten free versions of Asian noodles, such as Soba and Udon.

  17. says

    Just discovered your site and I love your creative recipes! I’ve been gluten-free for 2 months now, so I’m a sponge with a steep learning curve. I am interested in dairy-free recipes and baking with alternative flours that are lower on the glycemic end.
