What Do I Do Now?
Adopting a gluten-free diet is easier than you may think, and there are now more resources and options than ever before. However, you may wonder what you can or cannot eat now that bread isn’t an option. It is actually easier to list the foods that DO contain gluten than those that don’t. Be sure to read all product labels, and look for this helpful stamp.
There are so many gluten-free dessert options available. Look for sweet treats made with gluten-free grains, and check for hidden sources of gluten.
Gluten-Free Flours and Grains
Many alternative flours naturally gluten free, but please note to be careful if flavoring agents or fillers are added, as they may contain gluten.
Meats are naturally gluten free, but may be breaded or marinated in a gluten-containing ingredient. Keep an eye on ingredient labels.
Fresh fruit and vegetables are all gluten free. Frozen, canned, dried and juiced produce options are usually gluten free unless additives or fillers or used.
Fresh and dried herbs and all whole spices are naturally gluten free. If a blend just says “seasonings,” check with the manufacturer to be safe.
Sauces, Dressings, and Marinades
While there are many gluten-free choices, all storebought options need to be checked.
