A List of 20 Foods We Can Eat 

Originally Published Sept 1 2020

Here is a list for anyone who is new to eating gluten-free. I was quite hangry, to say the least, when I first started out. I didn’t know what was gluten-free and what wasn’t, so I bought anything that said gluten-free on it. That didn’t help me at all and made things worse, so in order to save you the trial and error, at least with what to eat, here is a list below.

Gluten And Dairy Free Oatmeal

Gluten & Dairy Free Ginger Peach Oatmeal

Ive broken them up into categories to make it easy. Keep In mind the following things: 

This list of foods is gluten-free in their natural state, but once cross-contamination happens or they’re mixed with other ingredients that aren’t gluten-free, they’re no longer gluten-free and aren’t safe to eat. Examples include food made in restaurants that isn’t completely gluten-free and fried chicken; the chicken itself is gluten-free, but once it’s coated in regular wheat flour, it's no longer gluten-free.

Rolled Oats 

Oats are naturally gluten-free, but you must look for oats that specifically say gluten-free because most oats are processed on the same lines as other regular gluten-containing items. Even at home, if you’re sharing the same pans and utensils and they’re at least not being washed first between uses, that’s cross-contamination.

Today, for every regular food item, there’s a gluten-free version of it (for the most part). Anything that isn’t available, you can make. For Instance, Ive never seen a gluten-free cinnamon roll version of Pillsbury Grand Rolls,  crescent rolls, or pop tarts. Eating processed gluten-free versions of other processed foods is expensive. If you eat organic and want an organic gluten-free version, what’s out there is going to cost even more. The regular organic versions look more affordable in comparison, but it’s the easiest place to start.

Be mindful (I cannot stress this enough) of the Food Labels. Check all food labels and look for any disclaimers or food allergens you may have. Double check, triple check, because Ive gotten home with gluten-free food only to see that it had tree nuts and soy.

When it comes to Oats, make sure the oats are labeled gluten-free; otherwise, they are cross-contaminated. I have bought the One Degree Brand of oats without any problems. Gluten-free living isn't so hard once you figure out your preferred foods. Good Luck on your journey.
