Default Gluten-Free Diet anyone?

I was wondering if there's anyone on there on a gluten-free diet?
Found out that I have "sensibilities" towards certain foods and I was advised to stick to a gluten-free diet.
Any experience and tips would be welcomed!

My 6 year old had celiac disease so we're all gluten free. Download the shopwell app which allow you to scan items in the store and gives you better alternatives.

Lots of veggies, fruit, rice, beans, meat...

Sorry for being vague. We're camping at the lake. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have. We love the skinny pop popcorn for snacks and the pop well chips. Many cereals are switching to gluten free including Cheerios, lucky charms, most chex...trying to think of the rest. Careful with beef jerky, many contain gluten for some damn reason. We use gluten free funfetti for birthdays, i think i like it better than regular actually. Making bobs red mill gluten free bread works best for us, haven't found any loaves in the store we like. Kind bars and larabars are gluten free and great snacks. Herbalife vanilla shakes are gluten free.

Yep, I do. Flares my autoimmune disorders. If you're trying to eliminate rather than reduce exposure, I suggest a lot of reading. There are a lot of foods/products that contain gluten that might surprise you. Condiments can be really sneaky.

I don't know which brands are available to you there, but like Fridyrr, I'm a big fan of Bob's Redmill for baking products. If you can't get them/order them, you might be able to peek their ingredient list online and then find a comparable product closer to you.

Store brand gluten free breads are...meh. Even the better ones still leave a lot to be desired. If you can find a local bakery that specializes in gf products, I think you'd be a lot happier with it.

It's actually not been as difficult as I thought it might be. But, I'm not as strict as I probably should be, either. I don't get horribly ill from a dose now and again, but prolonged consumption results in inflammation issues.

I have been diagnosed with Coeliacs disease for around 9 years. I find that there are many suitable alternatives here in Europe. EU law states that food should list possible sensitivities or allergens, so make sure you check labels. It's fairly easy to spot, they tend to have possible allergens in bold on the ingredients list. Depending on the level of your sensitivity you don't always need to purchase foods that have been produced as part of a "free from ..." range. For example, Tesco Free From pasta sauce is about £1.50 for a jar, Tesco own brand does not contain any gluten and costs around 70p. So once you've been doing the diet for a little longer you'll get the hang of what does/doesn't contain gluten.

Also, when eating out, inform staff that the gluten free option is due to sensitivities. With the rise in "fad" diets a few restaurants can be lazy and don't always stick to prep guidelines (they are supposed to prepare your food in a newly cleaned section to avoid contamination).

I hope all of that helps, if you need any more info I'm happy to help
