Simply Gluten Free Magazine Giveaway

Next month Simply Gluten Free Magazine will celebrate the printing of its fourth issue. In six months, the "allergen free made simple" magazine has zoomed up best-seller lists everywhere. Currently it is the 3rd most purchased magazine at Whole Foods across the nation. In addition to selling like hot cakes at Barnes & Noble, it will be hitting the shelves of Safeway and Target!

What I love about the content of this magazine is that much of it is written by bloggers and nutrition experts in the gluten-free/allergen-free community that you know and love—real people with first-hand knowledge of what it's like to live with food allergies and intolerances.

In the current March/April issue I share a short and sweet tutorial on how to make vanilla extract. Making your own vanilla beats store-bought any day.

I get ideas from lots of magazines but have to convert them to gluten free. So, I will stick to non recipe magazines for my other favorites. I like National Geographic, Mother Earth News, Grit and Organic Gardening.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJoan

My other favorite magazines are Organic Gardening and Photography Week. BTW, I love taking pictures of food!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterWeedwacker

I subscribe to Living Without, and Vegetarian Times and I find a lot of recipes to tweak in both of them. I never can follow a recipe exactly, so I like mixing things up, in more ways than one. Other than those two, I read Majesty, Royalty, and Hello to get my royal fix sated.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMari

My fave magazine is Oxygen! Love the fitness topics/how-to!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSasha

I like taste of home

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMary nissley

All you, Women's day, a few parenting ones. Then when we found out our daughter is gluten intolerant I've been using my soon to be mil's 5 ingredients 15 min meals. Been wanting to try this one haven't been able to yet. Finding a lot of gf recipes on fb and other sites.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBrandy

I really like Real Simple magazine. I would love to get an issue of the gluten free mag.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJeanne W

I don't currently have any magazine subscriptions, so I usually read my mother-in-laws back issues of Country Living, Martha Stewart Living, All You, etc... Love to get recipes (to adapt to GF) and decorating ideas. I've been hoping to find a GF magazine to subscribe to, this one looks great!!! Thank you for the chance to win it!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAmy J

I currently have a subscription to Living Without magazine, but would love to receive Simply Gluten Free. From your description it looks like it has a lot of useful information!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa C

My favorite has been Cooking Light. But I'd love to win a subscription to this GF magazine!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered Commenternina

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered Commentermoriah

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJ L

I love messing around with Food Network and Cooking Light recipes to make them gluten and dairy free. This is the first I've heard of a gluten free magazine! Going to see if I can pick one up today!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKate

I get a few magazines, but I will always subscribe to Better Homes & Gardens.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJulie Snow

I don't have much time to read magazines... but I love Cooking Light, Bon Appetite, and recently bought one issue of "Living Without" which had great content, even though the title is disempowering to me :)

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLee Bednar

I came here to see if I could find a link to your google chat with the first lady (because as hard as I tried it would not work on the day) and find a giveaway. Perks! Favorite magazine. They're generally such a let down with way, way too much advertising. I do have a soft spot in my heart though for "This Old House." Yes, I know, in my dreams. :-)

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLaurel

Delight Gluten Free

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly A

I love the magazine "Living Without" as well as "Kiwi." I would LOVE a subscription to this, as my almost 4 year old daughter has just developed several food allergies. And one of them may be to gluten. I'm at a loss for how to cook for her. This would be a life-saver!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterFelicity

I love Gourmet Magazine.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJessica C

Hi Lexie,
what a beautifuol magazine. I would love a subscription since I need some more help and great pictures to look at. Right now I like getting the emagazine Parenting Special Needs Magazine. It's not about food but everything else that relates to us that are blessed with Special Kids, including their special guts:)

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTracy

My new favorite is Taproot.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAlli

I don't subcribe to any magazines, but rather am a blog addict and get loads of recipe ideas
from the gluten free and vegan bloggers I follow. That said, I would love to receive this magazine.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterWendy

I love Sunset Magazine. I love the Day Trip section so that I can find new places to explore in our new town.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTracy W

I love Clean Eating, Martha Stewart, and always read the UK Country Living- could those pictures of the English countryside be any more relaxing? I love their features on local produce.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLisa F

I subscribe to Living Without and Oxygen. I have always loved to cook and bake but after discovering my allergies to both gluten and dairy, it all seemed so overwhelming. Having additional resources makes it that much easier to conquer! Thank you, Lexie for such a great site!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly B

Organic Gardening is my current favorite!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMelinda

I also love Paleo Magazine!

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAmy Ayers

I'm an herbie...Herb Quarterly is a fave of mine.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKim Donavan

Hi Lexie!
I have been gluten free for about 3 years now. All our pets have gone gluten free as well, and our family often will eat gluten free baked goodies that my dear sister Helen makes, instead of regular wheat items. (She's worked hard to master some of Betty Hagman's awesome recipes from her cookbooks)
I am a photographer, so I'd have to say my favorite magazine is Outdoor Photographer.
This new "Simply Gluten Free" magazine sounds fantastic and looks beautiful!! I would love to learn many more ways to eat gluten free and gain a new list of favorite foods. Thank you for this giveaway opportunity and keep up the great work!!
With kind regards, Jenny Lewis

I can hardly wait to see one. Haven't been able to find it around here. Love that Safeway will have it

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLinda

If I had to cut myself back to one magazine, it'd be InStyle. It was the first magazine I subscribed to as an adult (I will never forget my love of Highlights Magazine!) and it will forever stay in the rotation. If my life were 13 Going on 30 and I were Jennifer Gardner, InStyle would be my Poise magazine and I'd wake up with my dream job of working there.

March 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTabby

My favorite magazine is Natural Health.

March 16, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterdee m

My favorite magazine is the old standby, Better Homes and Gardens. I've subscribed for years and STILL love getting it in the mail each month!

March 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMary Hall

March 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTammy Bybee

March 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle Westbrook

I subscribe to "Cloth,Paper, Scissors" and "Organic Gardening" Have recently 'downsized' on magazines: however would love to fill in again with "Simply Gluten Free" 'twould be a well-rounded selection, dont' ya think?" Oops the Irsh in me popped up the day before St. Patricks Day


March 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJoanne

Real Simple! although it seems like almost issue is the same as the last. A fun, guilty pleasure :)
