The VerMints Team on 25th Apr 2017
It’s soon to be May and we are very excited to celebrate Celiac Awareness month with the Celiac Disease Foundation and the Beyond Celiac Foundation. Celiac Disease is a “genetic autoimmune disorder where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine”. What this means is that when people with celiac consume gluten their immune response attacks the small intestine and damages villi (which are small fingerlike projections that line the small intestine), which are used by the body for nutrition adsorption - so clearly very important! VerMints is very proud to be certified Gluten-Free by the Gluten Intolerance Group. We are also very dedicated to providing support and commitment to those with celiac disease, so we decided long ago to be manufactured in a purely sugar based facility. So, no other product is made in the same room or even same plant with these allergens. There is absolutely no gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, yeast, potato, sesame, salt, sulfites/sulfates, onions, garlic, rice or fish/shellfish. It felt necessary to list it out – impressed yet? Not only are our ingredients organic and clean, but we are free-from in production to packaging through and through. Just. For. You.
For May we wanted to put together a list of some recipes for spring. Salmon has been on the mind lately, so we figured a collection of healthy, gluten-free salmon cake recipes for spring would be a perfectly acceptable celiac disease recognition. Here are our top salmon recipe picks for Dinner, Lunch or Breakfast – whatever, you pick. We highly recommend wild caught, fresh or frozen salmon, however, Wild Planet has some excellent canned salmon ready to go.
We compiled a list of 10 different salmon cake recipes, in no specific order because they all look delicious and are Gluten-Free!
1.A Healthy Life For Me adds almond flour to shape her cakes and once complete adds a dollop of mashed avo and parsley – so much yum.
3.A Saucy Kitchen slathers up those salmon patty beauties with lemon herb aioli. What. The. Heck. Is it bad if you don’t take breaths between bites?
4.Real Food With Dana shares her pan-fried salmon cake recipe with caper-dill aioli. A little compo with saucy kitchen (kidding they both add an excellent, different addition). Fresh dill with a lil salty cappers. Now we’re talkin’.
5.Healthy Recipes Blog offers the deets on her golden, crispy, zippy salmon patties. Oh yes!
6.Little Broken adds an extra protein boost of quinoa to these delectable salmon patties and we are all for it.
7.Meatified mixes things up a little differently – adding parsnips and dill to these tasty patty treats.
8.Hold The Grain supports the salmon and avocado combo. Avocado Salmon Cakes pack a powerful omega punch – lots of TLC for your hair, skin and nails.
9.Good In The Simple is all about simple. And simple can make something pretty spectacular in no time at all. Salmon, spinach, shredded potatoes and eggs is where it’s at.
10.Simple Quinoa takes the potato approach, but reaches for the sweet potatoes instead of the traditional white potato. Little bit of sweet and smooth could only make these the next best thing for lunch.
All 10 recipes are good ones, so have at it!

Something we do with the kids every year when Easter is around the corner is dye eggs. I used to do it every year with my mother and siblings. The process of dipping, drawing and painting to create the most colorful, little ovals for our dining table center piece was such a delight. Although, cleaning up afterwards wasn’t received [...]
Spring has finally made it and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We really haven’t had a rough winter in the Northeast, compared to the monstrosity that happened two years ago, but we're excited for fresh, happy growth that spring brings. So many beautiful plants sprouting up and blossoming. Spring is one of the best times of the year, because [...]
Everyone is gearing up for the 2017 Super Bowl. Whether you’re hosting a party, going to a party or sitting at home in your lucky chair it’s gonna be a good one. Let’s talk about that lucky chair though. Superstitions are interesting - but do they actually work? Maybe. Do they work all the time? Who knows. But we [...]
The superbowl is fastly approaching, so preparations around it need to be at least be thought about. It’s hard to know exactly what is best, easiest and most delicious to serve or not serve. Appetizers are one thing that is a must. They are so practical and make sense for munching on throughout the entire duration of the big [...]
Winter in New England has been quite mild. We had a couple small snow storms that have covered the ground with soft, white, fluffy stuff, but other than that we’ve been wearing coats one day and t-shirts the next. The temperature has been jumping around on us - its in the 50’s and then it's back under freezing. Personally, [...]
Happy 2017! Another year goes by and a new exciting year awaits filled with adventures and opportunities. There is quite different responses to the New Year and those knotted resolutions that come with it. So many of us shy away from the idea of resolutions or simply find it foolish. However, we LOVE the idea. The idea to renew. [...]
We used to celebrate the Holiday’s at my Grandparents house. All 20 of us would take lanes, trains and automobiles from across the country to pile in one house for a weekend of love and laughter. Nothing can top all the home cooked plates, cheeses and exceptional sweets we’d indulge in for the days during and afterwards - woops. [...]
Thanksgivng came and went. So, now it’s December and the rest of the Holiday whip. Our lovely fans probably have their holiday shopping list, and already started checking things off. I’m sure of it. I have this sense all of you are pretty buttoned up. BUT just in case you’re not totally on it, we figured we might be [...]
