Calling all cookie lovers, the most wonderful time of the year is upon us—Girl Scout Cookie time!

It’s the time of year when those wonderful red and green and yellow boxes find their way into offices and grocery store entrances nationwide, bringing happiness to those young and old, and now, even the gluten-free.

The newest Girl Scout cookies, Trios, are a sweet mix of chocolate and peanut butter nestled between whole-grain oats. The best part? They’re gluten-free! (They’re not Girl Scouts’ only gluten-free offering. Toffee-tastic is also sans gluten.)

Being big cookies lovers, we had to pass some samples of the new Trios around the office. While some CL staffers found the texture and consistency of the cookie to be a hard adjustment for their gluten-adoring taste buds, one staffer praised the Girl Scout organization for trying to include gluten-free eaters and for using whole grains. “I’m glad they’re making an effort to A) be inclusive and B) go whole-grain!”

Gluten-free or not, you can never have enough cookie options, and we think that this one is worth trying.

    GFCF, C=casein=milk protein. He requires low oxalates (no nuts), no oats OR wheat. My son, and MANY like him have a GI disease which leads to autistic symptoms. This is the reason for rise in autism. More and more are suffering this incurable disease, brought on by vaccines and other insults. The NVICP will pay off parents in order to keep reality in the dark. The increase in #of vaccines, if plotted,is directly related to the # children with autistic symptoms. Autism is not a disease. The word is being used to pretend the disease is in the brain. It’s not, I ķnew Dr Bradstreet for a decade. He was murdered because he was to close to the truth. I am not using my real name, do not share names, we need to share this truth. The president elect, had indicated he will require research in this field. Let us pray this foolish man does start to bring an end to autism. My son has ILNHP,as discovered by Wakefield. His work was accused of inaccuracies. Months later they recinded their accusations. Wakefield was right. Children with autistic symptoms have GI disease. The GPS have been taught by pharmacies to ignore problems with GI. The first vaccines given within the first few months contain thimerisol(Hg),a heavy metal,very toxic to the body,especially at low body weight. My son received this deadly injection when he was about 4 lbs. He was a premie,born 3’10”. It is well known in the medical field how mercury affects the body. It insults the GI system. When the MMR vaccine [after the thimerosal injection] 3 diseases directly enter the bloodstream, and can pass the blood brain barrier. In a healthy GI, a barrier is developed in the GI according exactly to the Measles,Mumps, and Rubella in the vaccine. My son had what looked like (endoscopy) a measles infection in his GI. A sample was taken of his GI and we could not find a lab who would perform the microscopy necessary to compare his inflammation with a disease. They refused to identify his disease. The sample for our son, a very difficult surgery on a 6yo child with autistic symptoms, was accidentally destroyed. All we needed was a lab to determine what disease was causing the inflammation. The main problem: GI disease might have matched the vaccine proving beyond a doubt that vaccines cause autism. I want my story published. Help.
