Top Ten Tips for Living Gluten Free



top tenJen’s top ten tips for living gluten-free include:

1.  Find a local support group that can help when you are newly diagnosed or have questions along your journey.

2.  Find a local grocery or health food store that will allow you to taste the gluten-free products before you buy them.

3.  Start taking classes to learn how to prepare gluten-free foods.

4.  Experiment in the kitchen and don’t be afraid to try new foods and products.

5.  Make sure you have a “safe” kitchen.  Clean your kitchen well and purchase some necessary new items (such as a toaster) to avoid cross-contamination.

6.  Enlist your family and friends in supporting you in your new lifestyle.

7.  Find some great websites and blogs that fit your gluten-free needs.  See my list on the right side of this page.

8.  Locate a safe restaurant where you can eat during times when you don’t feel like cooking.  Eventually, you will be able to educate chefs at more restaurants.  But in the beginning, find a place that you know you can go to and not get sick.

9.  Carry gluten-free snacks with you in case a hunger attack strikes.  You can’t depend on the fact that safe food will be available.

10.  Relax and enjoy your gluten-free journey.  You will learn about great new foods and meet wonderful new people along the way.
