Gluten-free cooking tips

When you learn of a gluten-intolerance, it’s more than just cutting a few things out of your diet, it’s like an entire lifestyle change! Here’s a few tips that will help you survive the beginning of your new diet until it becomes second nature:

  • Read labels: Read labels in order to find any offenders that might be hidden deep into the ingredient list. This is very tedious at first, but it’s inevitable until you get the swing of things and familiarize yourself with the ingredients you have to avoid.

  • Keep a record: When you find a gluten-free product that you really enjoy, keep a list of gluten-free foods and write it down so it makes future shopping easier. Of course, you should still periodically check the labels to ensure the ingredients have not changed.

  • Grains to avoid: All wheat, barley, and rye.

  • Safe grains: Amaranth, buckwheat, corn, gluten-free oats, millet, quinoa, rice flour, sorghum, and teff.

  • Safe flours: Almond, chestnut, coconut, fava bean, garbanzo bean (chickpea), hazelnut, pecan, and soybean.

  • Careful separation: Avoid cross-contamination of food products by storing gluten-free foods away from foods which contain gluten. Use different utensils when preparing foods that are gluten-free. Not everyone in your house has a gluten allergy so it’s likely this tip will come in handy!

  • Keep a cookbook: Whether you buy a gluten-free cookbook, or record recipes on recipe cards, keep record of your favorite recipes for faster meal making.

Try a few different recipes, don’t give up. It’s quite the learning curve but you’ll have down this gluten-free cooking thing in no time!
