Gluten Free Web and Food List

 I am sure that there are many of you like me out there - celiacs who must have a gluten-free diet. We’ll bake for our family and friends, but do not bake for ourselves. It really is easier to just not eat the foods with gluten in them. 
 In the last years there are many more gluten free foods available in regular grocery stores and that sure has made life easier for me. Checking major brand web sites, might surprise you. HyVee, a chain grocery store here in the MidWest has a page of gluten free foods listed on their web site also. www.hy-vee.com/meal-solutions/special-diets
  I am not going to attempt to say what you should eat and recommend that you always read the ingredients on any packaging as they change often without notice. These are just some of the things that have worked for me. Hope this will be of some use and interest for some of our readers
 Always check labels before buying. Products change ingredients often without notice. Keep in mind your own sensitivity levels.
Most small Grocery store chains will have a list of gluten free products, check major food manufacturers and your local hospital, dietitian or doctor.  
Be aware that most Soy Sauces are not gluten free. You will need to sub for them in stir fries. Be careful if you are buying an overseas brand. They do not always list every ingredient.

  1. Cool whip maybe glutten free but just as soon as i eat. it my stomach tells me differently. Same with pillsbury glutten free pie crusts. I think i must be having a reaction to the soybean oil in the crusts

  2. I think it might be the soy. I have some problems with it also. Try whipping real whipped cream instead. I just gave up on pie crust.
    What I have tried just doesn't taste that good. Can you get Barilla Pasta? Their gluten free is very good and tastes so good no one
    knew they were eating GF Pasta.
