I have just been diagnosed. Been attempting gluten-free diet for two days now and I'm hungry! What should I keep on hand to snack on? Is Jell-O okay? What about ketchup and mayo? It's very frustrating to go to the pantry and find nothing to eat! Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Jello is made by Kraft. Any foods made by Kraft are gluten-free as long as there is no mention of wheat, rye, or barley in the ingredients list. Kraft has a policy that they will not hide these ingredients under a name such as "natural flavors" or "modified food starch."

Heinz ketchup is gluten-free.

There is a pdf file with a two-week gluten-free menu: see this post

Finally, consult the food, products, and medications section--where many of your questions might already be answered--

Until you learn the ropes I would suggest sticking to fruits, veggies, and non-marinated good meat or seafood. Chec out your loacl health food stores and they can show you all their clearly labled glutenfree items!

Good luck!

I would agree to stick with veggies and fruit until you know what is and whats not gluten free. Kraft and General Mills are 2 brands that will not hide anything on their labels so unless you see wheat,rye,barley,or oats on the label they are ok. It gets easier and we are here to help if you have any questions :D

LLH, welcome to the board! In addition to what the others have said, here are some gluten-free food list but you should always check the ingredients just to make sure, can never be too careful :)

Mainstream products that are gluten-free

Safe and Forbidden ingredients - it is a good idea to print this out, I keep this list and all my gluten-free food list in a three ring binder notebook and would take it with me to the store when I first started eating gluten-free.
