For veggie burgers there are a few. Amy's makes one, Sunshine Burgers are GF, and there is another brand in a white box that the name escapes me. They are clearly labeled GF.

It is a steep learning curve and we ALL make mistakes believe me!

Thanks!

I thought about Pinterest today and followed about 3 different bloggers who do gluten-free (some of it dairy free & vegan as well).

It's a wide world!

I did a quick Google search for "gluten free vegan sausage recipe" and I came up with several links to recipes. Here's one that looks pretty decent:

Anyway, go to Google and see what other recipes you can find.

I also stumbled across this blog, it may be very useful to you:

MSF was just about the ONLY processed food I ate (barring Panera or Subway that I'd get 3 or 4 times a month).

However, I ate MSF almost daily. This is going to be a GOOD thing but as it has already shown: I've saved ONE person from poisoning herself! That's why I'm sharing, not for boohoo but to HELP.

Hi Lily ,
Yes, there is a very steep learning curve when you go gluten-free. I'm happy to see you are persevereing. Keep learning ! Expect some set backs. The less prepared foods you eat, the easier it is to control your gluten intake (or lack there of ! ) emoticon
Blessings, Texasredfern

Thanks--I am starting to read the labels closer but there are a lot of things I didn't know previously (like spelt and barley being wheat...I'm learning)

Agree with everything Taekwondochick said, plus don't forget that products labeled "WHEAT FREE" are not necessarily GLUTEN FREE. Items labeled that way need to be checked for barley, spelt, durum, etc.

You never know how strong you truly are until you have no other choice.

Unfortunately, gluten hides in a lot of places. Most packaged sausages are not safe, they have gluten in them. Jones Dairy Farm sausages are all gluten free, and I believe Jimmy Dean is also gluten free. You can call their customer service line and ask.

When going GF, you have to question every product you buy, unless it specifically is labeled as being GF. "Spices" and "flavors" are suspect because you don't know exactly what that includes. Many spice blends or rubs are suspect because they can use flours as anti-clumping agents. Heck, even Rice Krispies are not GF because they use caramel coloring (made from barley) to get that golden color. Now they have GF Rice Krispies made from brown rice, thankfully.

It's a big shift in the way you eat and the way you buy your food. You must look at every label, every time... because formulas do change and you have to be diligent. The more you can cook from scratch, the better.

I've eaten them daily (one form or another) for years. I thought I was doing well, cutting out the gluten in this first week and then guess what I found. I was still eating gluten.
