Welcome WAKE:

Yes, it absolutely beat the alternative. Welcome to the club.

My first suggestion would be for you to read, read, read from this site. You will learn more about Celiac and it's side effect than from any doctor.

Start off with some simple meats, seafood, rice, potatoes and fresh veggies. Limit or eliminate dairy for a while until you heal. And be very diligent.

There are some pastas and gluten free breads that really aren't bad. Cooking gluten free is great with a few changes from non-gluten.

Your lotions, shampoos, lip balm all need to be gluten free as well. (i.e. anything that can find it's was into your mouth).

Other will pipe in with other suggestion and NoGluGirl has a wonderful beginner list of gluten free confirmed products.

Looking forward to getting to know you.

(WAKE - Wake Forest?)

Dear WAKE4ME,

ThiI have a list that should really help. This is overwhelming. I went through this with myself six months ago. You spend most of your day cooking and cleaning obsessively. The rest you are on the phone with reps from companies trying to find out what is safe. I decided to save you the trouble!

1. There are a number of things in the regular grocery that are safe. Some things are labeled already. Wal-Mart's Great Value brand has numerous things you can eat.

2. For the love of God use Coupons on items you are allowed to eat. People can get them and print them out online even. Call some of the local stores and ask if they accept online coupons.

3. Check the ads online and in the newspaper. You would be surprised how many people do not do this.

4. Some items like rice flour and rice noodles are safe to buy at the Chinese or oriental market. The merchants are more than happy to help you if you cannot read the label.

Now, here is my list of great things to get you started:

Condiments:

Smart Balance Margerine

Crisco Shortening

Crisco Oil

Pompeiian Olive Oil

Great Value soy sauce

Heinz Ketchup

Lea & Perrins Worchestershire Sauce (all Lea & Perrins Products are safe)

Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce

Kraft French Fat-Free Salad Dressing

Kraft Thousand Island Fat-Free Salad Dressing

Pace Picante Sauce

Ortega Salsa

All Classico Red and *White sauces

All Jif Peanut Butters including Smooth Sensations

Welch's Grape Jelly

Cool Whip*

Philadelphia Cream Cheese*

Miracle Whip

Daisy Sour Cream (fat-free, low-fat, regular)*

Snack Foods:

Utz Potato Chips (Found at Sam
