Life without gluten can be hard. Gluten is in everything! Breads, serials, drinks, ice creams, etc. Wheat is used as a cheap thickener, so often it is present in the most unexpected places, like taco seasoning.
Too often I can't have food because it was made in a factory where gluten products where made, and thus, the food became contaminated. I have to read every label, check for gluten allergy warnings, make sure it is safe.
On many days I have nothing to eat but a big plate of salad with homemade salad dressing...which I dearly love, but a person needs variety!
I cook with rice flour, sorghum flour, garbanzo fava bean flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, corn starch, and xanthum gum.
The allergic part of my life is what inspired me to look on Etsy and see what was there in the way of gluten free....holy cow, there are people on Etsy that sell gluten free foods and recipes!
I have put together a collection of some really yum stuff. This collection includes both already made food, as well as recipes.
