Marching on Gluten-Free!

I am a 45 yr old working mom of 3 kids and a husband of 23 years who was just diagnosed with celiac disease. We both work full time, have 5 pets and a large house to keep up with. Finding the time to shop and cook for my family is time consuming and since the diagnosis it is even harder. I thought it would be cool to hear the other side of eating gluten-free and help out anyone in my position. Hope you enjoy the blog.
It has been sometime since I have checked in and for that I apologize. The gluten-free diet is going well but a little boring. I did discover a new product (well new to me). I was shopping at my local Redners a few weeks back. I was picking up the cookies my hubby likes. upon my arrival I noticed 2 men standing right in front of my (LOL) gluten free section of the aisle. I say mine because I never see anyone else standing there. I became very curious as to why they were there. As it turned out, Redners was increasing their line of gluten-free items and in doing so now carries Dr. Schar Products. I spoke at length to the sales rep. The company is European and he informed me that across the pond they are more concerned than the US in getting this stuff to taste good. I was very excited. The pasta was fantastic and my hubby loves the shortbread cookies. Check it out and let me know if you try any of the other products. Happy Eating!
