  1. Fruit and veggies. Some meat that you can tolerate. Good luck

  2. Soups soups soups. I’ve had fun making stews. Make sure all raw spices and herbs! Or check them before. Things will be more sensitive to you. Dairy is for me too now and onions and garlic 🙁 I really enjoy making stew and tacos. I take papaya pills for digestion.

  3. First thing you need to do is clean out your kitchen! Get separate cooking appliances, clean the counters, make a space in the pantry and fridge for GF stuff only, make sure all your soaps and drinks and hair products and detergents and makeup and medications are GF, thoroughly wash EVERYTHING, and get new cooking utensils and spoons and stuff.

  4. Cabot cheese product are dairy / lactose & gluten free

  5. Change your tooth brush

  6. Cry for a bit…

  7. Welcome to the club you never wanted to join!?. It will be ok, you will feel worlds better once you get the hang of it. Just read up on it (Fassiono is an expert and lead on celiac research), and educate yourself. You got this ??! Read Gluten is my Bitch if it helps you to laugh. I always would rather laugh about things!

  8. in the beginning, it is easier to not worry about labels and trying to figure out of gluten free substitutes are in fact gluten free. I would start off by eating Whole Foods. Meat, veggies, fruits, nuts, etc. my favorite way to eat dinner is to pan-roast seasoned chicken and veggies. It’s easy, quick, and delicious. I would go for simple snacks like cut up fruits and veggies, nuts, PB, applesauce, jello, etc. just be sure of course that you’re reading the label on any snack you get to be sure it’s gluten free. Gluten comes in the form of wheat, barley, rye, oats, and malt. The only exception to this is certified gluten free oats. If it says “may contain” or “processed on the same lines as” wheat, barley, etc. it is not safe. If it is processed in the same facility as something containing wheat, you can use your best judgement. It may never come into contact with any wheat containing foods. You’ll want to check for gluten in anything you put into your mouth-toothpaste (crest and Colgate are gluten free), medicine, vitamins, all foods, and drinks. I will suggest that UDIs bread is my favorite ? going gluten free doesn’t have to be super complicated and it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Just read read read that label on anything you’re going to eat. If you’re concerned, contact the manufacturer. If someone has intolerance or celiac, it’s also best to replace your pots/pans and utensils, primarily ones that have been scratched, wooden utensils, or silicone utensils. It is vital to replace your toaster. No exceptions. You cannot burn gluten off of things. I would do a total kitchen food makeover and get rid of any gluten foods so you don’t get mixed up and throw out any pots and pans with scratches. If you have butter, jelly, or Pb that has been used for regular bread, throw it out. Youlll have to replace with new and only use it for strictly GF items. I hope this helps and I hope it wasn’t overwhelming. It will get easier as time goes on. I would suggest not eating out until you learn the basics of cross contamination and being gluten free. There’s a wonderful group here of people willing to help. If you have questions, just ask. ? also, Cheerios and lucky charms may claim to be gluten free, but the way they are processed, some boxes may be under the limit of gluten contamination, and some boxes may be over the limit. So basically if you eat those, you may or may not get sick. It’s best to err on the side of caution and not consume those products at all. Hopefully they remove their gluten free label because they are not safe. Good luck! Going gluten free has been the best thing to happen to me.

  9. Start slow, with the obvious. Stress is hard on a gut, too. It’s a process and a whole new way of being.

  10. Pinterest and these groups will help so much feel free to pm me i am 2 yrs gf and celiac

  11. Talk to your family and try to work out how cross-contamination risk will be effectively managed. Clean all surfaces that may contain gluten by vacuuming dust/crumbs and scrubbing with baking soda where practicable. Transitioning to a gluten free household is worthy of consideration. Limit intake of processed foods to an absolute minimum and if necessary, introduce gradually and slowly to isolate probable cause of any reaction.

  12. Take a moment and Relax- it will be okay. This is a journey not a sprint, so pace yourself…then lay the groundwork for yourself and your family…. Focus on whole food, read a lot. You got this!

  13. Maltodextrin is safe in USA

  14. I have a bajillionty recipes on my blog that are both gluten and dairy free. http://Www.nerdymamma.com

  15. I suggest eating Paleo (protein, fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds)

  16. Start slow …keep food diary, and list cravings, find substitutes…
