If you are fairly new to the gluten free diet, this is a large order list.

I would continue to eat whole foods and add one product at at time. B)

I need to add more protein & fat to my diet. So I absolutely need the nut butters b/c I have dh & issues with iodine regarding the dh & locally I can not get any unsalted nut butters. Then I really need some rice cakes or crackers to put them on. I have chosen soy free products as well as I have problems with soy. And the flax can be used in many ways to increase not only protein but all the other good things flax imparts. Potato starch is for gravies. The coconut macaroons add fiber & they just plain sound good. And then I thought I would try making some muffins or such.

Lisa gave you some really good advice. I so wish that I had been given that advice when I started on this diet.

We are all different in our levels of sensitivity and possibly other food intolerances. You have to determine for yourself what is safe for you to eat. The best way to do it is to add one new things a week so that you can tell where any reaction is coming from. It is a bit hard at first, but you soon have enough foods.

Otherwise you can be sick and have to keep trying eliminating different things to figure out what is getting you. That isn't a nice place to be.

I have had problems with many of the things on your list, but that doesn't mean that you will.

In case it helps, I've done o.k. with buckwheat that I believe is from BRM (it was bulk -- I know, I know, stay away from the bulk bins and all that... I'm still learning!). I've also done o.k. with Lundberg farms rice cakes (unsalted, brown rice), after realizing that I may have issues with the Quaker Oats brand. I also have the BRM potato starch, seems o.k. for me. The other stuff I haven't tried.

I did find some unsalted Adams peanut butter at Winco foods, fwiw.

Thanks ciamarie! I have had some Pocono buckwheat which I've been eating for some time & haven't had any problems with it. The stuff is funny ~~~ put sugar & milk on it & it tastes like cream of wheat ~~~ put butter & salt & it tastes like grits. But those are 2 of the things that were great comfort foods for me so I'm happy about that. When I have to go low iodine it puts a crimp in eating it though. I'm very happy to learn about the Lundberg farms rice cakes! I need something to put the peanut or almond butter on. The rice cakes were lowish in the salt so that fits with my iodine issue. I did read on the board to stay away from Quaker rice cakes. I'm going to have to order the nut butters online as this town doesn't have it at the grocery store & no health food stores have survived the economy.

I have been using BRM All Purpose Baking Flour, Brown Rice Flour, & White Rice Flour since almost the beginning & haven't had any problems with them although I would prefer to find some that are produced in a gluten free facility. Better safe than sorry especially considering how long dh can hang on (3-5 weeks for me).

I found some pure coconut oil at the grocery store today. I've been reading on the board how it's a substitute for butter. YAY! And they had some Glutino Flax Seed bread. Had some with lunch (lightly toasted) & it was delicious! I've read many on the board who think it sucks so I guess it's individual tastes but I'm very excited & Glutino stuff is made in a gluten-free facility.
