Hi, I was just told that I was not allowed to have Gluten…I have no clue what I am doing where to start or anything. Could you give me any advice to make this transition easier. Thanks, steph

Not to fear stephaniewinn! Life without gluten it pretty much like regular daily living.  Yes, you have to steer clear of fried foods and traditional pastas and breads served in restaurants and sold in grocery stores, but thankfully in the last few years there are thousands of new products on the GF market and restaurants are serving GF dishes.

Be vigilant about reading labels, and don’t feel embarrassed when asking waiters whether certain dishes contain gluten/flour/soy sauce. 

Lastly, my best advice is to start cooking at home! Even if you’ve never cooked before, being GF could be a blessing in disguise as you learn your way around the kitchen and experiment with GF ingredients.  Quinoa, risotto, millet, and polenta are some of my GF grain favorites.

I hope this helps! The important thing is not to stress and to do a bit of research to find the best GF food options in your geographic region.
