Gluten-Free Basics?

03 March 2013 - 11:21 AM

I am extremely new to the gluten free community; I was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 days ago. Just wanted to know:


-what kind of appliances and things do we absolutely have to replace?

-tips on eating out?

-what to do for retreats and summer camps (they will probably have mostly gluten to eat)

-where to buy gluten-free groceries?

-suggestions for everday, quick gluten free meals

- gluten-free store-bought meals? (canned, frozen, etc) me and my mom bought a few things, like gluten-free bread & Dinty Moore beef stew, but I can't live on that forever.


Luckily, I have some experience with living gluten-free. My mom went gluten free for some time about a year ago, and she would make gluten-free meals often. We also have some Glutino cereal and Gluten free pasta left over from that phase, haha. Which is good, because now for me, it is a necessity to live gluten free. 


Any tips from the veterans that they'd like to share? I am a young teenager, by the way, if it makes any difference.
