Google ‘Gluten-Free’ so you know exactly what that means. All items that have a GF symbol or claim are not GF–manufacturers aren’t GF-educated OR they are attempting to make money off of those who need GF products and don’t know any better. You are looking for items that are Certified Gluten Free. Those that really are will give you more information about how they are GF and what they do to make their products safe.A Gluten Free Label Does Not Equal Healthy
- My Kids Food Allergies–a blog and website created by a mom, has a section on gluten-free info. http://www.mykidsfoodallergies.com/
- Eating out. Several of the larger restaurant chains have GF menus and you may be able to view them online. I’m talking about ‘sit down’ restaurants, not fast-food.
Red & Green Chili Gluten-Free
- Bob’s Red Mill Flours–good stuff–GF bakers swear by them. They have separate growing fields and separate processing facilities for their GF products to avoid cross-contamination while growing and processing. They have recipes, too! www.bobsredmill.com At the time of publishing, there was a coupon offer on the Home page!
- UDI’s Breads–they are found in the freezer case with organic foods. Careful, there is a Rudi’s Bread, too and they are placed beside each other in the freezer case 😦 I don’t know anything about the Rudi’s brand, but I resent the attempt at confusing the customer. http://udisglutenfree.com/product-catalog/
- Dominos Pizza has a GF crust in their small 10″ size, but it is made alongside glutinous pizzas, so this may not work for you because of cross-contamination. It works for me! Click on menu and then go to the right sidebar and select gluten free crust. www.dominos.com
- Amy’s Kitchen Gluten Free Pizzas–kind of bland, but you can add your own toppings to make them taste a lot better http://www.amys.com/ They also have an educational section with some GF info
- Schär pastas. http://www.schar.com/ They advertise themselves as “the world leader in gluten-free.” They’ve been around for 30 years. Somebody likes their breads!
- Pamela’s GF Cookies–I like the Ginger Snaps! Found in MOM’s Organic Market http://www.pamelasproducts.com/
- Tate’s Bake Shop Gluten Free cookies. I like their Chocolate Chip Cookies. Found in MOM’s Organic Market http://www.tatesbakeshop.com/c/product-cookies.html When you first go to the website, you can get a 20% off coupon for signing up for email from them (you can always unsubscribe later on) AND, there is a very large gluten free section–just keep going, now!! YUM.
- MOM’s Organic Market –small GF section. Easier to trust the brands they have because they insist on higher quality goods, like certified organic products http://momsorganicmarket.com/
- Corn tortillas
- Alcohols made without gluten-containing grains–yes, there are GF beers around! Non-wheat vodka, tequila, most wines–well those made with grapes.
- Drink lots of water
