I am extremely new to the gluten free community; I was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 days ago. Just wanted to know:

 

-what kind of appliances and things do we absolutely have to replace?

-tips on eating out?

-what to do for retreats and summer camps (they will probably have mostly gluten to eat)

-where to buy gluten-free groceries?

-suggestions for everday, quick gluten free meals

- gluten-free store-bought meals? (canned, frozen, etc) me and my mom bought a few things, like gluten-free bread & Dinty Moore beef stew, but I can't live on that forever.

 

Luckily, I have some experience with living gluten-free. My mom went gluten free for some time about a year ago, and she would make gluten-free meals often. We also have some Glutino cereal and Gluten free pasta left over from that phase, haha. Which is good, because now for me, it is a necessity to live gluten free. 

 

Any tips from the veterans that they'd like to share? I am a young teenager, by the way, if it makes any difference.

Read this and have your mom do it too. Is she really just expecting you to figure it out on your own?

Colanders, wooden and plastic if they are scratched and can't be cleaned well.   Wood you can sand off a layer if you want. and re-oil it.

 

-tips on eating out?

Don't.

 

-what to do for retreats and summer camps (they will probably have mostly gluten to eat)

Check with the camp etc before hand to see if the can accomodate your diet needs.   Some may be able to, but others won't.  You can bring lots of food with you or they can provide a place for you to cook your own meals.  You'd need to get some groceries in the area.

 

-where to buy gluten-free groceries?

Any health food store, and many regular grocery stores.   Look for items marked gluten-free. Online stores are good too.
