I have decided to start a Gluten Free 101 Series. I think that when you get your diagnosis it is so hard to know what to eat and what to do. It is really overwhelming and there were many days I would just go stand at the pantry and then walk away empty handed. One of the best tips of advice that I can give you is to create a Gluten Free Basket for yourself. You need a “go to” area in your pantry that is “safe” for you to consume.
I had this large basket and claimed it as my Gluten Free Basket. I filled it FULL of Gluten Free snacks and goodies that I can eat when I am at home or grab for on the go. It is truly my salvation. If you are Gluten Free and your family is not then you need a special spot in your pantry to call your own. This is mine. I know that anything I choose out of this basket is safe for me to eat and my family knows it is all MINE and they don’t eat my Gluten Free goodies.
I hope this series helps you on your Gluten Free journey and please leave a comment with anything you would like to see in the series.
