Are you Gluten Free?

Started by Melissa @ Stockpiling Moms , author of STOCKPILING MOMS — Extreme Couponing 4/18/2012 8:59:01 PM

I have Celiac Disease and live a Gluten Free life.  There are many people who chose to eat Gluten Free regardless of being diagnosed with any "reason" to do so.

Have you ever tried eliminating Gluten from your diet?

I post Gluten Free recipes, a menu plan weekly, coupons, deals and resources at Stockpiling Moms in you are interested in learning more or know someone else who is.

When you transitioned to that, did you find that there were a lot of products out there for that lifestyle or is it still hard to find?

I cook and bake all gluten free now and nearly all my recipes can be made gluten free that I've posted in the last few months.  One I'm proud of is the Strawberry Bread.  It was so nice to just switch out the flour and it worked!  That renewed my spirit for gluten free baking.  It's so delicious and was wonderful to have some baked bread again!

I thought there were plenty of products out there but I just switched GF in the last 3 months.  It was overwhelming at first but there are so many resources now it's not nearly as difficult as it once was.

I honestly eat more whole foods now and much less processed.  There are tons of great GF products but they cost a lot.

That looks yummy!  It is not bad but very overwhelming and can be extremely expensive.

I agree!  It can be very expensive.  I think that's what is great now is that there are so many resources to save too with coupons being such a huge thing. 

That really helps.  For me feeling better and not being sick all the time is worth the expense.  I try to just buy a few specialty foods and then everything else buy things that are naturally gluten free like meats and veggies.


my SIL  is gluten free and I know others trying it to help with fertility issues i will definitely share your recipes thanks!

I'm interested, is there a benefit for those of us that can, to eliminate Gluten from our diets?

Yes, we are a gluten free, casein free family. We have been for some time now. We do it because two of my sons have Sensory Integration Disorder. The diet helps control the symptoms.
