When you first check a gluten free food list, it can seem as though ALL your favorite foods are suddenly off the menu! However, there are actually plenty of tasty, wholesome foods that you can still enjoy!
The list, below, includes the basic foodstuffs that you will want to include in your gluten free pantry, along with some that may sound unfamiliar. Don't rule them out because you have not used them before, I will teach you some amazing things that you can do with ingredients such as quinoa and dried beans.
Even if you cooked from scratch before your diagnosis, the methods used for preparing some of the items on the gluten free food list may surprise you!
