Recommended Products

For the first month after I was gluten-free, it seemed like all I did was read labels. So I’m happy to help you with that task. All of the items listed here are gluten-free, sugar-free, contain no artificial sweeteners, and are my go-to ingredients.

A big shout-out to Trader Joe’s and Bob’s Red Mill for making so many gluten-free products available. While it’s a bit pricey to ship grains, if I’m stocking my pantry it’s actually cheaper than buying individual bags. Plus, most stores don’t carry all their products. If you can get organic rice, do spend the extra money. Rice crops use more pesticides than most other grain crops, getting sprayed multiple times in a growing season.
