Lily, no it is for lots of others. Not sure what you looked at but they have pasta, Dr. Schar, Gluten free Pantry to name a few. Did you click on on-line store?

Thanks -- any deals are GREAT!

I noticed that site seems to be for General Mills products (I could be wrong but I perused for some time, including videos and their products list).

I just got a few things from drugstore.com (which I already use for my moisturizer ;p) and I'm looking forward to trying them (brown rice and corn pasta & Patricia's GF Choc cake mix).

Yes, the old-school ways of doing things I am finding to be the best! I am not annoyed at all by your questions! I am happy to help!

As for the beans, do it your way, and just have them less often. ANy lfestyle has to be something you can maintain, and we all have our concessions.

Cindy, you are so knowledgable ! I'm probably annoying with all these questions. I grew up cooking my own (growing, too: hulling, drying, then sorting & cooking months later).

That's very good news that "my" way is okay (or at least. It horrible).

Lily the bean thing is something that the Paleo diet recommends against because of the lectins. But you can minimize them by using dry beans and soaking them. Also, many Paleo/Primal/Ancestral health writers advocate allowing yourself a 10 or 20% leeway with your diet so that you can have the things you really like once in a while and maintain the lifestyle long term. Beans are just not that important to me! I would rather use my 20% for something like GF chicken nuggets! emoticon

Donna, my understanding is all Chebe uses a base of manioc (what tapioca is made from). That would be their base, so I don't know what changes they've made since I've only been looking / learning for the past month or so :)

Thanks, Cindy.

I grew up eating lots of legumes (cos the meat we raised was our income!) and that's my one sticking point with the Paleo diet. Legumes are so good for you (if they don't cause a problem).

I just found out 100% (I've been testing it) that BROCCOLI is one of my foods I cannot eat. No matter how well-done I cook it, it blows me up (and I can't "pass" since I have spastic colon). Broccoli! Otherwise, a healthy food.

I thought the pizza crust was better than most...it had the right texture. I was not GF 10 years ago so I cannot compare.

I am off legumes too except on a rare occasion.

I wonder if the Chebe pizza crust is better than when I tried it 10 years ago. I didn't care for it at that time. They have come out with a lot of new things that I probably won't try. It seems I try a lot of things and they end up in the trash. The one I do like is the cinnamon rolls. I don't make them like the recipe says. They end up more like cinnamon cookies and everyone that tastes them really like them.

I have had the CHebe pizza crust mix and really like it. It comes out kind of crusty like it should. I bet the bread is good too! I have it available here but just haven't made any I have been trying to stay away from the grains all together.

Thanks for the info. Will have to try it when I get out of this hospital when my husband's transplant takes.

Thanks for the site. I went and looked up Chebe mixes etc., where to buy. Luckily there is a store just a couple of minutes from me. Have you tried these and are they good? I have a hard time eating the GF breads, some of them make me gag.

another thing for Gluten Freely quite often they have deals with Living Social(like Groupon) so you pay $25 for $50 worth of stuff.
I was trying to remember the name but Vitacost.com has a lot of GF foods, just watch their deals a couple of weeks ago they had Tinkyada spaghetti noodles for like $2 a bag.

I use Amazon a lot. I do the subscribe and save. I am able to get Chebe at the health food store. If you watch you can get free shipping from Gluten Freely if you spend $40. I never have trouble spending 40. Once in a while they will have free shipping on any amount.

I live in a remote area. Gluten Freely is very expensive (more than direct!) but GFM seems to be cheaper, thank you!

I get it at my local store but have you looked at Gluten Free Mall or Gluten Freely?

While I prefer baking from scratch, I keep seeing people mention Chebe. I went to their site & I'm interested in getting a "try me" pkg (they have an 8 box). I also saw on Amazon.com, there's some reseller who sells a 12pkg with 2 of 6 varieties.

Just wondering if anybody orders online and where they get the best, most reliable deals?
