Day 2 Gluten Free - Overwhelmed At The Grocery Store

Recommended Posts

The times I've had emotional reactions at a grocery store have been when I'm shopping with someone who is not gluten-free!

They can go and grab pretty much whatever they want while I'm reading labels and passing by a lot of aisles. On my own or with my mother who is also gluten-free, passing by so many of the aisles feels like a relief! And there aren't any gluteny items going in the cart as a distraction, or even TALK of those items!

Also, if this helps, my mom and I always laugh because we go to the HEALTH food store to buy our JUNK food!

We buy our meats, veggies, fruits, nuts and beans at the chains Stop & Shop and Big Y, but we go to the local health food stores for the more expensive, specialty treats like gluten-free cookies (Nana's! EnjoyLife!), Lara Bars, FruitaBu...

That's our system! Hope it helps

Junk food from the health food store... :lol::lol::lol::rolleyes::blink:

    I think you should consider getting tested for celiac disease in order to help rule out gluten ataxia.  Why?  I just had anemia.  No GI issues with gluten.  I never would have guessed that I had celiac disease.
