It has been about a month since I started eating gluten free and the hardest part has been realizing that there are things I may never be able to eat again. It’s a small price to pay for feeling better, which has already happened a little bit. However, there are things that I miss and that is what this post is about.
Where can you find gluten free options of your favorite foods?
Of course places like Trade Joe’s, Whole Foods, Target and a few grocery stores will have some of the things you are looking for, these 10 websites are filled with the tuff to find food items I know my gluten free peeps are looking for. Just click the pic to get to their website. (List in no particular order)
1. Udi’s is amazing and has so much to choose from: tortillas, oatmeal, granola bars, pasta, pizza crust, bagels, muffins, buns, rolls, cookies and so much more.
2. American Gluten Free is a GF subscription box. As a newly GF person, these boxes expose you to a lot of yummy products you did not know existed. I highly recommend them.
3. Gluten Free Things is an AMAZING bakery in Colorado that makes everything you could possibly want. I suggest spending the $100 and getting this starter kit below. Their shipping cost is very reasonable.
4. Pamela’s is a great product if you are looking for pre-made cookies or mixes you can make at home. Whole Food’s does carry some of them, but for everything check out Amazon. Oh and get the graham crackers and fig newtons, you’ll thank me.
5. Annie’s is also a great choice. While not everything is GF, their pasta and cookie snacks are. I’ve found them at target before, but I know Amazon has it as well.
6. Evol! I love their single serving meals, they leave Cody free to eat what ever he wants, which is nice for him every once in a while. They have you covered for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, with everything from Mexica, Asian, Italian, and beyond. If you haven’t tried them yet you should.
7. Glutino is another company that makes a lot of different GF options. They make “poptarts” that are crazy good!
8. Jimmy’s Bars, out of Chicago are the most amazing no sugar added, gluten and vegan bar out there. I first had the banana bread one in the Atlanta airport and it did not disappoint. Most other bars of equal quality and size are $3.50, these are $2.50 and totally worth it. Check out their site or order on Amazon.
9. Bob’s Red Mill is a great place to get GF oats, mixes, and different types of flour. They have a facility dedicated to GF products, so there is no need to worry about transfer. I love their 1 to 1 GF flour, I use it all the time in regular recipes. (Found in most store and Amazon)
10. I know this sounds crazy, but Walmart Grocery online is amazing for finding GF options. Looking for GF ravioli and bam, three options. I love using the delivery or pickup service (depending upon location), it makes life super easy and I can hunt for things I might not other wise see in store.
So, where do you shop? I would love to hear from you about where you get specialty items, not just GF.
