  1. I did find a local store that carries the Canyon House brand and will give that a try. It can be tough as I live in a fairly rural area and we don't have a lot of the resources many of the more urban areas do. It is a 1 hour round trip just to get to the closest town with anything like a Trader Joe's or New Earth Grocery. One of out 2 health food stores in town even closed down a few years ago ands this town is full of Seventh Day Adventists that do a lot of shopping at health food stores. Most of my shopping will likely be done online at Amazon, but there is much more availability at even SaveMart and Safeway nowadays.
  2. Thank you! I see a Dietician early next month and figured I will need to be more strict early on. There is so much to learn. I am grateful for the apps available that allow me to scan UPC's to find out what is and is not gluten-free, but will be confirming by reading labels too. I cleared out quite a bit of space in my cupboard today. It is only me in the house since I lost my husband earlier this year so it will be easier to control what is in the house. He loved bread as much as me so it would have been much harder with the 2 of us here
  3. I was just diagnosed yesterday via lab testing and was quite shocked. I have been looking for gluten free replacements for things as I am a definite bread-lover. I have been using the Non-Sugar-Added Nesquik every day since long before it the name change from Nestle's Quik and just checked the label this morning. I does say "May contain wheat"....not that there may cross contamination, but since i am so new to this I don't know if those are essentially the same thing. I guess I will need to be a little more strict in the beginning and then try adding things back in a few months that may not be definite offenders. If it doesn;t work, I will have to find a substitute. I did find Carnation Breakfast Essentials Light Start is Gluten Free, but much more expensive for using every day. But apparently almost everything gluten-free is if it is not naturally that way.....
