Glad I found this forum. Lots of useful knowledge I've been able to seek out. Our family is my husband and I and two little girls, 2YO & 5YO. The girls are on gluten free diet and my husband and I are finishing out the "old" food (eating Cheez-Its when girls are in bed). Eventually the whole family will move to gluten-free as I've read it's possible mother/father derived. If after we try the diet for an extended period of time and its not beneficial we'll go back.
We are going gluten free after a suggestion by our Pedi. Tested positive w/iigg but no other results positive.
Have a couple questions I am hoping you or someone can help me with:
Do we really need to replace vanilla and spices? Since we're sensitive I imagine the amounts in them are small, correct? McDonald's - Emailed them and they no longer maintain a gluten-free listing but I derived the McFlurry with M & M's would be safe. Do you agree? If something has wheat in it or shared a wheat facility we're staying away Primarily eating fruits, vegs, tacos (corn shells), beef stew, - what other meals do you typically make? Is applesauce safe? We live on apples. Bought the Pamela's pancake mix. What flour do you suggest I buy to start making my own cookies/treats, etc at home?
THANKS in advance!!!
