Re: Talk to me about being Gluten free...

We are gluten, soy, dairy and egg free. That wipes a whole lot of prepackaged stuff off of our menu. But, IMO that is a good thing for my waistline and wallet, that stuff is $$
We just eat whole foods. I don't try to buy or make gf breads of pizza crusts anymore, it just doesn't turn out well and the flours are super expensive. We just go without. I would suggest that approach if you are just going to do a gf trial to see if it helps your symptoms. Just stick to one ingredient items, such as fruits, veggies, lean meats (with no solutions added), potatoes, rice...gluten is in so many items that there is a pretty big learning curve to avoiding it completely. Just go easy on yourself and don't eat anything that you don't cook from scratch at home. Watch for cross contamination and also things like coffee, meds, vitamins, etc.
