I eat GF and my husband eats somethings GF if I only make a GF meal(tacos, or use GF breading...)If pasta or something like that than I make both regular and GF....crackers and cookies, he eats regular,although some of the GF cookies or brownies I bake I share as they taste "regular" LOL! He usually won't eat my stuff as he says it cost twice what he eats and feels bad if he eats what little goodies I can have. As for thanksgiving, I am making two stuffings regular and a wild rice version that is GF. You will figure out a balance after awhile. Robin
I'm not GF, but probably need to be, so when others in my family have hamburger (for example), I eat a "cheeseburger" w/o the bread. Instead of a chili dog, I'll have the franks (cut up) in the chili, with cheese, onions, etc.
We're eating basically the same thing, and there's no extra work/expense.

When my girls were home they ate normal pasta and I would fix my own because of the extra cost. Now my DH eats a lot of the same things I do, just because it easier. He still eats his own bread, cereal, crackers and "normal" food.
My husband does a lot (well, ok, most) of our cooking, so, our system is either a naturally gluten free meal (for example, tacos), or, for things like pasta, he makes gluten free for me, regular for him, and we make one sauce to share.
The two meals create a few more dishes, but my husband is happy to be eating gluten, and I think it's cheaper for him not to eat "my" food...
(Then again, I really don't mind him eating gluten in front of me, so this system works for us. May not work for everyone...)
As for the baby, well, gluten free for now (ha), and I don't know how early we'll start on gluten, but I want the little one to at least know how stuff tastes - and if they don't have celiac, WOOHOO!!

I have a question for all my fellow gluten free sparkers!
I do not have Celiac, but am gluten intolerant. So I try my HARDEST to eat gluten free...but what about my husband and daughter? My husband for sure doesn't have a problem at all with gluten items, and my daughter shows no signs of issues either, she is 2 1/2.
Should I make them eat gluten free too? What do you all do in your family?
