Gluten-Free: Where to Begin?!Posted: December 13, 2011
I’m pretty sure my 3 year old, Gibby, is gluten sensitive or gluten intolerant. Two of my other children have me wondering whether they have a few issues with it too. Without giving T.M.I., their various poo issues are what has me most concerned about gluten sensitivity/intolerance. I was sort of hoping they’d grow out of it over time but my little Gibby seems to be growing more sensitive and intolerant of gluten as the months go on and I’m a bit concerned.
So, today is grocery shopping today and I’m not only on a mission to stick to real food purchases but now gluten-free purchases. I’ve spent some reading over some gluten-free bloggers recipes for ideas because I don’t know very much about gluten-free living and I’ve never purposely sought out or prepared gluten-free foods before. Thank goodness for these people and their killer blogs! Because of their awesomeness I know have a decent grocery list of real, gluten-free food options for the next week or two.
I think one of the best places for any gluten-free newbie to start is at Gluten Free Easily’s Tip Sheet Page. It is an insanely helpful list of resources for anyone getting start to the world of gluten-free. My favorites include:
- Top 20 Things You Should Know About Gluten
- 50+ GF Foods You Can Eat Today
- 50+ Meals That Are gfe
- 50+ gfe Sweet Treats
- The gfe Pantry
Here are some of the other blogs I checked out (or want to check out soon) and recommend for anyone else on their real food, gluten-free quests.
The local Wal-Mart is our one and only destination tonight for shopping. Hopefully, I’ll find the things on my list there. I’ll post after our shopping trip to see what I found and how much damage the trip did to ye ol’ checking account.
