What's your favorite gluten free product?

GO!

If I to chose something in a package it would probably be Better Batter flour. There are very few things we eat packaged right now and with all our other restrictions it was really nice to just be able to make a normal loaf of bread.

For my daughters I think it would be peanut butter and jelly larabars.

It's so hard to name just one! I'll have to name a few!

Udi's Bread

Udi's chocolate chip cookies

Pamela's Baking Mix

Betty Crocker gluten-free Brownies (better than regular!)

Cool! What are the rules? Can this include intrinsically gluten-free stuff or is it pre-made gluten-free products? All the gluten-free products that come to mind are those that are already gluten-free like duck, truffles, shark, langoustines, lamb, vanilla beans, fresh herbs, lemons, pink peppercorns...

But if it is pre-made gluten-free snack stuff I would choose falafel chips with homemade hummus. I have yet to find many processed gluten-free products I like but I do like those! Cannot recall the brand and am too lazy to get up to check. And Lara bars sound fabulous! As soon as I see some somewhere I'll snatch 'em up.

Chebe and King Arthur gluten-free flour. I use both to make pizza crusts most of the time, even though I can no longer have cheese on my pizzas, these crusts are good enough to stand on their own. Sometimes I just use them to make garlicy breadsticks and dip in pizza sauce. :)

For commercial products, Kettle Brand Sea Salt and Pepper Potato Chips. 2nd place would be Dark Chocolate Nuggets with Almonds by Hershey's.

From nature, a perfectly ripened non-fibrous mango, sliced and eaten plain.

(There are different varieties of mangoes, just like there are different varities of any fruit of veg.)

Tonight I had a perfect mango. It was better than any gluten-free commercial product you could ever hope for.

You can't go wrong with Larabars! The cherry pie bar is amazing!

We also can't live without Udi's bread, Pirate's Booty, and Target Brand fruit strips. DD is now devouring grape tomatoes and string cheese. Namaste pizza crust mix is great.

"product" = packaged

Ancient Harvest Quinoa pasta (corn alert)

Marianated artichoke hearts

Roasted red peppers (yes, I buy them in a jar)

Chia Goodness "cereal" is weirdly delicious

Nutella (I'm going to make my own with coconut milk, as soon as I remember to buy hazelnuts)

food = ingredient

blueberries (I've eaten so many in the last two weeks I'm in danger of turning blue)

kale/collards

fresh herbs

apples

lentils (I opened a jar of them I hadn't opened for a while yesterday and just thought...yum! at the lovely lentil smell wafting out)

buckwheat in all shapes and forms

OLIVES

Me, neither. I scratch cook/bake daily because I love it so darned much! As I also teach cooking/baking classes I stay on top of culinary trends. My pantry is huge and full of all kinds of cool ingredients from our travels.

I, too, love ras el hanout et. al. My spice collection is exotic - I have almost 90. I try to purchase whole, dry roast them and grind them either in my spice grinder or M&P. Making my own spice and salt blends, rubs, BBQ sauces, sambals, ketchups, mustards, salsas, preserves, pestos and tons of sauces is my idea of fun. :P I would never, ever tire of food talk. Other than family, travel and food are my obsessions. Oh, and good books and gardening.

No rules! I'm just so bored with my daily food routines, I figure if there are any new products out there or ideas that I'm not aware of, here would be the place to find it!

I love gluten-free Bisquick too!! I can't eat Udi's, it makes me sick oddly enough, no other gluten-free product does that.

I've actually trimmed mine down, as I just don't go through them fast enough and things so stale when I cook primarily for one. 90! I wish. I've been thinking I need to do more herb salts. Any suggestions? My community garden has a beautiful herb section, and I'd love to preserve more of them but have limited freezer space for my typical olive oil-herb ice cubes when it's also being stuffed full of greens and blueberries to last the winter (well, as much as will fit).

To OP: If you do the rigamarole of finding the link to my blog via my profile, there is a section on my blog called the "to-cook list." That has links to a bunch of things I'd like to make, but haven't gotten around to yet. Might be a little inspiration. (If you can't find it, PM and I'll try to make the link formatting transfer.)

My favourite herb salts to make are orange, lemon and lime with rosemary; lemon zest, pepper and oregano; sage and lemon.

You likely do this but I love to make compound herb butters to freeze. I really like garlic, chive and lemon; chili lime; sage and lemon and so on.

And to use some basil (aside from pesto) I make blueberry basil vineger and basil jelly. Not to mention apricot chile jelly, mint, lavender, etc. Sometimes I get a bit ridiculous - I currently have 27 vinegars in the pantry (most homemade). I'm a hoarder. There. I admitted it!

Lara Bars all have nuts as far as I can tell, but Enjoy Life makes some good bars that are free of the top 8 allergens (including gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, all nuts, etc).

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not.. 
    • Golden Bell Pepper Soup (Gluten-Free)
      Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts View the full article
    • Southern-style BBQ Chicken (Gluten-Free)

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
