That's the question of the decade!

It depends what you like - whole grain v. "white"....

Other allergies, issues, etc.

If you are new to gluten-free try to stay away from the processed stuff for the first month or two - sometimes its just too much for your body to deal with.

That said, if you want ready-made Rudi's and Udi's have a good following.

Gluten-Free since 6/2011.

Thanks for the reply pricklypear. Could anyone tell me if its ok to eat cheese? I read its fine to eat everything except for blue cheese then someone told me blue cheese is the only cheese that is ok to eat for a celiac.

All cheese, including blue cheese is fine. Except there are a few fancy cheeses with Porter ( beer) or beer in them or soaked in. They will say on the ingredients.

There has been much discussion about blue cheese because originally the mold was grown on wheat. It is very seldom done that way. Maybe a expensive foreign blue cheese may have had the mold grown on wheat but the mold eats the wheat and it becomes mold. It's no longer wheat. If you want to be very safe, just use main stream cheaper blue cheese like Kraft, Whole Foods brand, etc.

I like Tinkyada brown rice pasta, Udi's breads, muffins, and bagels, and Glutino English muffins. All the Chex cereals are gluten free except obviously Wheat Chex. Ancient Harvest quinoa pasta is OK too.

I've tried various pasta replacements. Hands down, for me and my family Tinkyada is the best.

I haven't found a bread I like yet, other than Udi's raisin bread.

Really, the less processed gluten-free foods you eat the better you'll feel. Some items labeled as gluten-free can still have *some gluten*, albeit low doses. A whole foods diet of fruit, veggies, non-processed meats, eggs, and dairy are best.

For pasta, I like Mrs. Leeper's corn pasta (assuming you tolerate corn, or course). The best way I've found to cook gluten free pasta is to boil it for 5 minutes, pour it into a collander to drain, and run cold water over it to stop the cooking. Reheat briefly and on low power in a microwave, covered with a damp paper towel. Over-cooked gluten free pasta, especially rice pasta, turns into glue. Not appetizing at all! But my method generally avoids that problem.

I enjoy Udi's bread and bagels, Glutino's crackers, and Knikkinik makes some sinful cookies.

Hope this helps!


Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.

Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)

Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

I like Tinkyada too, but I've bought other brands of brown rice pasta and they're pretty similar. Tinkyada makes a spinach pasta I like. Udi's or Rudi's breads are good and the Udi's muffins and cinnamon rolls are wonderful! Glutino makes good cookies, crackers, and pretzels. I like the Glutino bagels but the breads are so-so. Kinnikinnick has good frozen cake donuts. Whole Foods dedicated gluten-free bakery makes scones I really like. Their bread has a good flavor but it's crumbly and overpriced. Sch
