Day 2 - dealing with gluten free confusion...
Thursday, May 09, 2013
Yesterday was a big day of research for me. I thought I sent my daughter to school with a "safe" gluten free lunch, but found out that "whole grain oats" are not technically considered gluten free since oats are commonly cross-contaminated with wheat... Too bad I just bought a case of Nature Valley granola bars, thinking they were ok since they didn't have any wheat in them! Since oats seem to be so controversial regarding gluten-free or not, I'm going to keep those out of her diet at least for our 4-week experiment.
I bought lots of GF mixes and flours yesterday, so today will be a big day of baking.
Please feel free to give me any GF advice (snack ideas, recipes, web links, etc) - I can definitely use it!
