Gluten-Free Freedom

I wasn’t planning on this blog being a “gluten-free” driven blog.   But I’ve seen so many people with blogs who are doing the gluten-free diet.  Some just starting out too.   I know how hard it can be at first, especially if you don’t know anyone who has been through it too.

I’ve been gluten-free for about a year and a half, so even though I’m not totally a veteran, I’ve been through the initial phase of decontaminating the kitchen, finding out what products are worth their weight in gold and which products the dog won’t even eat. 

 Being a junk food junkie AND having two pre-schoolers, I think I’ll start off with a list of my favorite mainstream gluten-free junk food. 

 Cool Ranch Doritos (not classic Nacho – it has wheat starch)

Cheetos

Lays Stax (not Pringles)

Fritos

Easy Cheese (the spray cheese – not the bacon kind though)

Mission Tortilla Chips

Salsa

M&M’s  – all but the crispy kind

Most See’s Candy (http://www.kintera.org/site/pp.asp?c=ewK0LjP7E&b=34870)

Plain Hershey’s Kisses

Popsicles

Peanut Butter

Most sodas

 Fruity Pebbles

Cocoa Pebbles

Remember to ALWAYS (!!) read labels and verify products for yourself.   Companies can reformulate products at any time.  Sometimes they add gluten for whatever reason.   Up until a few years ago Kellogg’s Corn Pops were gluten-free.  Then all of a sudden they weren’t.
