Living Gluten Free: The Guide to the Celiac Diseased

By Ashley

I recently found that I most likely have Celiac Disease (allergies to gluten and wheat). I always hoped I wouldn’t be allergic to these things, but it turns out, I am. You don’t realize until you’re allergic to them, how few items have no gluten in them. It’s really hard to find foods that taste good and you can eat. So, I decided to make a list of some of the foods I review, so you can go through finding good foods, easily! Whether you’re like me, or are doing it to be healthier (which I wouldn’t do!), I hope this column helps!

Foods I’ve tried this month:

Pizzas

Cookies

Chicken

Noodles

Crackers

And More.

Pizzas

Hodgson Mill – Has strange seasoning, not my taste.

King Arthur Flour – Is kind of flavorless, but edible.

Gluten Free Pantry – Delicious! Thick and yummy, the best kind.

Cookies

Betty Crocker – Kind of has an oatmeal texture, but is still good.

Chicken

Hol-Grain Coating Mix – This stuff coats your fried chicken, and is good, yet stills a tad different.

Health is Wealth – Chicken Nuggets that taste like they have gluten! They’re delicious!

Noodles

Sam Mills – Pasta d’ore – This stuff is the only spaghetti I’ve tried so far, so it’s the only one I can comment! The first time you try it, it can be quite strange tasting, but you get used to it.

Annie’s Pasta – This Mac & Cheese has a strange rice texture, and if you don’t have the right mixture of cheese, it can taste strange too. But, it’s definitely the best Mac & Cheese.

Breakfast

Bisquick – Yummy! Still not your regular Bisquick pancakes, but the best kind I’ve tried.

Muffins – King Arthur’s Flour makes some good blueberry muffins, but make sure you cook them long and good!

Snack Items

Glutino chocolate wafers – Real yummy, taste just like the real wafers!

Kinni Kritters Animal Cookies – These taste kind of like Annie’s Bunny Grahams, (healthy version of Teddy Grahams) and so are pretty good.

Back to Nature Crackers – White Cheddar crackers. These crackers have a really strong flavoring to them, which isn’t White Cheddar. You can really only eat a few before your taste buds go numb. They’re still nice to eat when you don’t have anything else to.

Gluten Free Pantry Bread – Really good! Fresh, it tastes like French bread, with gluten!

This is all I’ve tried so far, but I’ll keep eating! You’ll find that quite a few foods already are gluten free:

Gogurts

Yogurts

Plain ice cream (No cookies)

Pudding

Jello

Fruits

Fries

Cheetos

And more!
