Hi, I am a newbie and new to the gluten free world. From what I've read here I know fresh fruits and veggies are good. So what packaged luncheon meats are are gluten-free?

 

Thanks in advance.  :)

Most lunch meats are gluten-free. Read the ingredients. I have gotten many brands, some not labelled gluten-free but they have no gluten in the ingredients.

These are 3 I know say gluten-free on the package

Boars head - you can get it in packages. Hormel Natural Choice says gluten-free on it. Applegate ( kind of pricey).

Welcome!  I like hormel natural choice, very reasonably priced at my store.  Applegate is good, too, but I only buy it on sale.  My local grocery store labels their lunchmeats as gluten free.  I like boars head but my regular store doesn't sell their products.

 

Tammy, something that helped me out immensely when I first started a gluten-free diet was a grocery shopping guide.  Its a little book that can fit in your purse, and you look up a category and it lists what is gluten-free.  The one I use is the Cecelias marketplace one :  http://www.ceceliasmarketplace.com/gluten-free-guide/

 

The other thing I did that helped a lot was look at what I usually eat, and create a meal plan and shopping list for those things.  Planning meals helps you be able to research what you are doing to buy in advance, make a list, and not spend hours in the grocery store on your smartphone trying to figure out if something is gluten-free or not.

If you use an app, guide, or even advice give here ~ you still need to READ THE LABEL everytime. 

 

Cocco Puffs cereal kept changing the recipe or releasing old stock of cereal with new.  It was just a nightmare, every other box changed from gluten free to gluten.  That was 4 or 5 years ago.  I've been gluten free for about 10 years.  I still bought yeast packets during the holidays that had extra gluten added to the product.  I had a coupon, was in a hurry, and had never seen gluten in yeast before: but I Should have read the label.
