Hey Guys, so I'm new to gluten free - very new (I am on day #1) but I was wondering, where can I find (or can I?) a "cheat sheet" of sorts - small, portable, and easy - that I can take with me to the grocery store - also maybe a handy list that I can put on my fridge with a magnet?

You might need to cut and paste to a word document, but this is certainly been a life saver for me!!!

If you have a Palm type PDA, you can subscribe to Clan Thompson's database with thousands of items and their gluten status, including restaurant foods. Worth it the first year or so while you are finding your way. For now, best to print out a list of ingredients to avoid and carry it with you, and spend a lot of time reading labels. It takes a while, but next year this time you will know what to avoid in your local stores and where to find stuff you need. It also helps if you decide to just do without expensive gluten-free replacements for processed foods you were used to - if you cut out processed foods (most everything in boxes on shelves) and opt for fresh produce, meat, eggs, and dairy, you'll eat healthier and save money.

http://www.glutenfre...donothidegluten This list will make label reading easier for any Celiac, especially new Celiacs.

With these companies, if you don't see "wheat rye barley malt oats" then its not "hidden" in starches, flavors, etc.
