Aka Grammy to Nicholas, Olivia, Miranda and Chloe

If you want to go gluten free and don’t know where to start, you’ve landed in the right place. My goal is to share the tribulations and successes of my family’s journey to Gluten Free eating and living. Visit my Personal Stories page if you are interested. Otherwise, simply use this site as information for your own Gluten Free journey.

Start with the positive! As you go gluten free (GF), you’ll want to focus on eating fresh vegetables, fruit, dairy, meat and fish without sauces or certain seasonings.

Vegetables, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, peas

Lettuce, radishes, arugula, cabbage, bok choy

Chives, basil, wheat grass, horseradish, saffron

Rice, quinoa, corn, tapioca, rice flour, buckwheat

Blue cheese, cheddar, mozzarella, Monterey

Almonds, peanuts, walnuts, chickpeas, avocados

Balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar , cane vinegar

Beans, dried and fresh

Apples, pears, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, etc

Fresh fish, shellfish, poultry, beef, pork, lamb, bison as long as you do not bread it with wheat flours

No! But you have to give up wheat, rye and barley breads. After taste testing varieties of GF breads, I discovered that my favorite is King Arthur’s Gluten Free Bread Mix, which is made with an ordinary mixer, no bread maker required. If you don’t want to make your own, then try my second favorite, Rudi’s Gluten Free bread, found in most grocer’s freezers. I use it for toast or French toast when I don’t have time to bake. But there are dozens of GF breads to choose from, varying in taste, texture and dryness, so for Number 3, I suggest:
