that having a dedicated gluten free kitchen is amazing??? :)

 

I just remove the last 3 cans of glutenous food from my kitchen. I've replaced my cutting board and utensils, thrown out some old pans, bought a new stock pot, done some scrubbing. 

 

My waffle iron, blender, and toaster have always been dedicated gluten-free.

 

The stress relief afforded by this move is amazing! I feel so happy that I can cook, bake and make sandwiches without stressing out about double dipping or chopping stuff or setting stuff down, etc.

 

The only gluten that I can think of in my house now is some shampoo in the bathroom and my fish food. I bought some gluten containing shampoo by mistake so I'm having others help use it up.

 

Not sure if I'm ambitious enough to make homemade gluten free fish food for my goldfish! LOL!

I'm glad this has made it easier for you.  My kitchen is mostly gluten free.  My husband is the only gluten eater in the house.  He has snacks, his own toaster and dedicated space on the counter.  The rest is gluten free.  He is good about not double dipping and gets everything he needs first then makes his sandwiches.  He doesn't bake any gluten foods because I won't let regular flour in the house.  He eats gluten free baked goods etc. and if he wants something different he goes to the bakery.  I don't have to worry about the kids cc anything because they both are gluten free too.  It sounds like it will be a big weight off your shoulders!

I find it a relief to have a completely gluten-free kitchen too.  I read every label in the grocery store and make sure not to bring any cooties into my apartment.  Then I can relax and eat whatever I want and not think twice about it.  I would think having to second-guess food and prep surfaces every time you want to eat something would be a lot of added stress.  The only down-side is that if I'm eating at someone else's house I have to keep reminding myself not to get too comfortable about eating whatever is in front of me.

Unless you plan on kissing your goldfish, I wouldn't worry about their food!  :lol:

why do goldfish need gluten in their food?  Just wondering...


  • 0
Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.
Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

I don't have a clue, but it annoys me that it's in there.

 

I'll either:

 

a. wash my hands after feeding them

b. make somebody else do it

c. pour their food directly out of their container without touching it

I don't worry about the gluten in the fish food... I'm in the habit of washing my hands every time I touch the fish tank anyhow - even if it's just to lift the lid to feed them.  Fish carry bacteria and even TB, so it's a good idea to wash your hands anyhow.
