I'm still pretty new to the gluten-free world. I've been clean for about a month and a half now and I feel great but I need some cooking help. I've been trying to stick with whole foods like I'm supposed to and I think it's going pretty well but I'm not a cook so I don't know what to do with veggies and beans. I'm pretty much living vegetarian right now. I'm mainly sauteing or roasting veggies and beans in olive oil and a little salt and pepper and eating them with quinua or rice. I've truly never felt better but I need more variety.
Can anyone suggest a good whole food cookbook or website for recipes? I'm not ready for all the "gluten-free cooking" with the breads and replacing wheat-based foods with clean foods yet. I need to heal before I go there. I just want some good, healthy whole food recipes to vary my current rotation. I'm not opposed to eating meat or seafood, I just don't know what to do with it. I am truly not a cook. My husband usually does the cooking but now that I am gluten-free we cook separately. I need help!
Does anyone know if the Lipton White Tea to Go packets that you pour into water are gluten free? I have been searching online but can't find any information. It has that annoying "natural flavor" listed in the ingredients.
I'm trying to get off soda but need something to drink other than just plain water. I drink some hot teas but now that it's warm out that isn't as appealing. Any suggestions?
I have been searching everywhere for information on gluten free cosmetics but I can't find any current information. Am I missing something? I'm a newbie (just a week Gluten-Free) and I really want to try and replace all of my skin care and cosmetics as I need them but I can't figure out what is safe. Any suggestions? I really need mascara!
I thought I would share an Ipod application I found that I think is extremely helpful. It's called "Is That Gluten Free?" and it's truly fabulous. It has lists of products (by category) with the information of when it was verified as gluten-free and a complete list of ingredients labeled as "safe" "unsafe" or questionable. You can also add your own notes on each product and ingredient.
As a total newbie (less than a week gluten-free) I found this app so helpful for my first trip to the grocery store. Obviously, I would not only rely on the information on the app but it helped me to know what products to pick up to read the label.
Just thought I would share. The app can be found on the App Store and it was only $8.00 to download. Totally worth the money in my opinion.
