Kristen, I too feel like the black cloud around me is starting to lift. I've been gluten free since mid November and my day does not revolve around food anymore. I am so glad that you are feeling better as well! We got this! On step in front of the other and in no time we will be posting on here and helping all the newbies out.
I use shop well. However, if it says something contains gluten, I go right to the ingredient list to see what is in red. Sometimes it is modified food starch or caramel coloring that causes the app to tell you to avoid a product. I have scanned Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce (that says gluten free on the bottle) and it tells me to avoid it due to the caramel color. It is not a perfect app, however it is a useable tool in my toolbox every time I shop.
1of6 replied to phillysmom's topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & Medicationsphillysmom, I feel your pain. My son is 11 and has apraxia with many texture issues. He only eats a handful of foods as well... not a fruit, not a veggie, his only meat is chicken in nugget form from certain companies...it goes on and on. Try your best to find a suitable substitute for his regulars. It will get easier once you can get him to eat a pizza that you have made. The Chuck E Cheese by us has a gluten free pizza that is made in a gluten free facility and shipped to them in an individual baking bag. The staff takes the sealed pizza from the freezer, puts it in the oven and then brings it out to you still sealed in it's bag. They bring a sealed disposable pizza cutter for you to use after you open the pizza. You can only get a cheese pizza and it is only offered in an individual size but this might be an option for you.
