Eating Gluten-Free Tips
Our gluten-free recipe roundup favorites is just a starting point. There is a learning curve to eating gluten-free and we have compiled our favorite tips and meal ideas for your review. This is by no means a comprehensive guide to gluten-free eating.
Here are a few tips for eating gluten-free:
Read food labels carefully. Gluten can be hidden in all sorts of foods, so it’s important to read food labels carefully. Look for the gluten-free label on all packaged foods.
Be aware of cross-contamination. Cross-contamination can occur when gluten-free foods come into contact with gluten-containing foods. For example, if you’re using a toaster to make gluten-free bread, be sure to clean the toaster crumbs out first to avoid cross-contamination.
Plan your meals ahead of time. Planning your meals ahead of time can help you make sure that you have plenty of gluten-free food on hand. It can also help you avoid eating out at restaurants that don’t have gluten-free options.
Find gluten-free alternatives to your favorite foods. There are gluten-free alternatives to many popular foods, such as bread, pasta, and pizza crust. You can find these alternatives at most grocery stores.
Essential Gluten-Free Pantry Items
Keep items you use often on hand. This varies based on your food likes and cooking practices. We have suggested our most used items and you can fine-tune this to your cooking style and preferences.
Here are some essential gluten-free pantry staples:

Coconut flour: Coconut flour is a high-fiber gluten-free flour. It has a strong coconut flavor, so it’s best used in recipes that call for coconut. It can be used to make pancakes, waffles, cookies, and bread. It can also be used to make muffins and other baked goods. Recommended for those of you who also eat a Keto based diet
Oats: Oats are naturally gluten-free, but they can be contaminated with gluten during processing. Be sure to buy oats that are certified gluten-free. Oats can be used to make oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, and cookies. They can also be added to smoothies and yogurt parfaits.

Canned Gluten-Free Products: Canned gluten-free soups, gluten-free tuna, and other canned GF products are recommended to have on hand when you do not feel like cooking. Also for your convenience, you should stock up on any staples you use regularly such as GF canned peppers, GF Worcestershire sauce, GF salsas and canned tomatoes, and GF soy sauce (most soy sauce is made of wheat so it is very important to look for that GF designation on the packaging).
Don’t forget to include gluten-free baking powder, corn starch, sugar, and other gluten-free items for your general cooking needs.
Fresh meats without seasonings or additives are recommended along with fresh produce. All of these should be rinsed in water to remove any cross-contamination.
Fresh fruits and vegetables: Fresh fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They can be eaten on their own or added to salads, smoothies, and yogurt parfaits.
Fresh eggs are great prepared any way you like. You can also boil them and keep them peeled in the fridge for a quick snack or topping for a chef’s salad.

Other recommended items are gluten-free tortillas, gluten-free store-bought bread, gluten-free salt, gluten-free pepper, gluten-free spices, gluten-free cheeses, and sandwich meats for convenience.

Gluten is a protein commonly found in wheat, barley, rye, and products containing these ingredients.
