I'll have to look for the Rice and Shine here. I've missed oatmeal. I do like to snack on the Enviokids cereals, they're great if you need something a little sweet. My three year old nephew took my baggie full one day and ate them all! If he can't tell they're not kix no one can!

MLONGANO I did get some Envirokids cereal. I got the peanut butter panda puffs. I haven't tried them yet but thought they'd be good to much on at work tomorrow. I also got some Rice and Shine hot cereal. I had it this morning with baked apples, a touch of honey and some cinnamon mixed in. It was very tasty and very filling.

I actually just got a Bob's Red Mill catalog in the mail. I also need to check my natural foods group that I joined to see what they have. Thanks for the advice cause bread is one thing I am having trouble with. I know I need to just reduce or eliminate it from my diet and I wouldn't have the trouble. One step at a time!! :)

It may be too late for this trip, but our favorite bread is by a company called "kinnikinnick Foods". They have a Sunflower Flax Rice Bread that seems to me to be the most normal tasting of the breads. I also like the Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flower by Bob's Red Mill. I usually add in some garfava flour for added protein and mix more vanilla than the recipe requires for zucchini breads and the like.

The brown rice pasta is good too. It tastes real mild.

Thanks! I ended up getting some crackers, bread, cereal, pasta, cookies and baking mixes. I sure don't plan on diving into them all at once but the store is about an hour away so now I have some things on hand. I plan on taking the crackers with some cheese to work as a snack on Monday.

I agree--the Tinkyada pastas are a Godsend. You'll find them under the brand name "Pasta Joy."

I love love love Nut Thins--Pecan are my favorite. They're crisp little crackers that are great with cheese.

In the regular grocery store, Chocolate Chex rule. They're the rice/corn Chex rather than the wheat chex, and they're absolutely delicious. I don't think they have the strict contamination rules that some of the GF brands do, so if you're very sensitive, you might want to avoid it.

I agree with everything Dotslady recommends, I also like Envirokids cereals. If you ever have kids around, or if you like to snack on cereal they're great. I like the Gorilla Munch, it tastes like Cap'n Crunch. They also make some cereal bars if you're looking for something to go.

I like:

-Bob's Red Mill GF Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal tinyurl.com/5uz84

-Garbo Bread (kinda tiny-sized, but pretty good; toasted, of course). In the frozen section. I've tried Sunflower and Sport. tinyurl.com/325x6j

-Any Tinkyada brown rice pasta www.tinkyada.com/ProList.htm

-Bakery on Main brand granola cereal (nutty cranberry maple vs apple cinammon - haven't tried the others) www.bakeryonmain.com/pages/gluten-fr

CHeck your prices as you go. Some things can be ordered through Amazon (over $25=free s/h) and also, glutenfreemall.com (through celiac.com's site). Ya gotta try it to like it though. Good luck.

(And all Pamela's cookies are very good for a treat- not so much on the waistline :)

Edit: also, remember not to order or buy in bulk too much. Many products don't have shelf-extenders and will go bad much more quickly. I had a moth problem from some boxed cereals I never got around to eating. It was such a pain to clean the entire pantry to find where they'd laid eggs!

I am headed to a health food store this afternoon and need to get some GF foods. Any suggestions on anything that is extra good. I am mainly looking for breads, cereals, etc. I don't each much of that stuff but I am just looking to have some on hand. Thanks!
