Welcome to the world of Gluten Free. As you spend 30 days on trying out this lifestyle I wish to encourage you to enjoy the new foods available to you and look at this as an adventure. Foods/stuff I love that you might like to try: Bob's red mill gluten free oats, Mrs.Lepers Corn Pasta, McCormick seasonings, All fruit smoothies from Jamba Juice, Garlic Jims Gluten Free Pizza(they deliver- hope you have one near you!), Pamela's Bread Mix(make the rolls and use for sandwiches), Baking mix (makes great muffins and pancakes) and Brownie mix (nummy treat) = easy way to make some baked goods without buying a bunch of flours since you are just doing a month trial. Pamela's website gives easy recipes too! I have been gluten free a long time but I remember my 1st month and best advise was when someone told me to just make a weekly plan and eat similar foods to what I ate before just substituting gluten free items as needed. It was less overwhelming when I took it in small chunks. I also packed myself a gluten free bag of snacks to take whenever I went out. Snacks that are Spark friendly and gluten free: Little cups of fruit, Orange, Apple, Banana, Little baggies with almonds or walnuts, Nature Valley "nut crunch" granola bars, Mrs. Mays Trio Bars(at Costco), Crunchmaster Crackers(at Costco), Corn Tortillas and Corn Chips, String Cheese and little bag of carrots. Stores we have that are helpful are Trader Joes, Fred Meyer, Nature's Market and Uwajimaya. Wish you good eating and health as you start on this road! Smiles Barb
