When I began to explore the wonder of gluten free eating and living I got more and more excited about new choices and options that I would never have had theopportunity to try. There is so much good, fresh and wonderful things out there. So here are a few things I always have on hand.
Tamari sauce – the gluten free alternative to soy sauce
Maple syrup– I really limit sugar but when we need it I use maple syrup, honey or coconut sugar.
Eggs– love eggs! can’t get enough of them. They are perfect for any meal and the ultimate versatile food.
Greek yogurt – if you can’t have dairy, chances are you can handle greek yogurt or goat greek yogurt. I put it in everything as you will see on this site.
Coconut Oil- excellent for baking as a butter substitute and so good for you.
Spinach– my second go to food. raw, cooked, blended, so good and so versatile.
Garlic– I smell sooo good.
Earth balance -its a butter substitute. Works great in baking but I limit its use.
A good gluten free flour– Cup 4 Cup is Ok to start with but over time I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. I’ll be sharing for sure.
Nuts– nuts were a daily snack when I first went gluten free but since then I have discovered so many more options. I still toss them in my baking and salads with reckless abandon.
Gluten free pasta – Good for hot dishes and cold salads. The really good brands are no different than regular pasta.
Quinoa – Versatile, delicious hot or cold, easy, tasty, healthy, love this stuff.
