Hi Becky ~

I'm in Savage MN ~ I shop @ Valley Natural Foods in Burnsville for my dds packaged food. I'm pretty new to being wheat-free. She doesn't have celiac, but is allergic to wheat, as well as many other things - see sig. She is doing so much better since being off wheat and rice in October. It's quite amazing!

How about you?

That is where I was going to buy stuff for me and my daughter but I found Fresh and Natural foods in Shoreview and I love it! I go to Whole foods some and a few other co-ops. I have also found that my Cub carries many gluten-free items.

Hi Becky ~ how long have you been gluten-free? Did you know that there is a gluten-free bakery in Eagan? It's called Bittersweet Bakery. I haven't been there, but am thinking of calling to see if they could make something for my dd.

Our Rainbow has a better selection than the Cub. SuperTarget is also starting to carry things now.

My dd has been gluten-free since 12/1. And i have been gluten-free since 12/16. Yep, I have seen some stuff at Super Target. I have never been to Bittersweet but Valley natural carries some of thier baked goods and they are good. DD loved their pumpkin bar too! The cubs and rainbows very around here. I go all over to get stuff. Belle is also dairy free but I am hoping once she has healed she can have it again.

We're everything FREE, here. :D Losing wheat and rice has been very traumatic here for us. I'm having a hard time finding a "bread" that she can eat and pasta. She likes the Tinkyada pasta, but it's brown rice so she shouldn't have it. I've tried the quinoa pasta and she doesn't like it. I just found a pizza crust that she likes from www.savorypalate.com, though, so maybe I'll try and see if she'd like it as flat bread.
How old is your dd? Mine is 7 years old.

Mine is almost 4 (4/1). She is eating more foods now that she feels better so that is helpful! But she is still picky!

Hi.. so what are your/her favorite products so far? I am DSO a bread recipe that I can make for her. Everything has rice in it (which she cannot have). I've been letting her have a little bit cuz the only pasta she likes is the Tinkyada. But, it seems to be constipating and giving her stomach aches.
