I started eating wheat free/ gluten free a few years ago for health reasons. I feel better, and have less health problems when I don’t eat wheat.
Since I prefer to do all our cooking and baking from scratch, I try to make my own gluten free foods as well. Since I am the only one in the house that eats gluten free, I concentrate on feeding everyone else first, and myself last. Which means I buy a few gluten free products as well. Mostly crackers, pasta, pizza crust, and bread. I have yet to make a loaf of bread or a pizza crust that is passable.
Here are a couple of books I recommend for you to read and find out more information about eating wheat free/ gluten free.
You can read my review of Weeding Out Wheat for more information on that book.
Gluten Free Recipes
Here are some of my favorite wheat free/ gluten free recipes. You’ll see that I use oatmeal a lot. I like for my food to have some nutrition to it, not just white starches. If you have a problem eating regular oats, you can purchase gluten free oatmeal to use in these recipes.
Homemade Ranch Salad Dressing – yes, wheat is used as a filler in many salad dressings.
As you can see, most of those recipes are breakfast or snack items. Gluten free dinners are very easy to make. For example, just serve rice instead of pasta. I also love to use Quinoa.
Here a few of my favorite meals that can easily be made gluten free.
Lo Mein – Watch the soy sauce, though, it might contain wheat
Stir Fry – Again, check your soy sauce
Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore – easy, and delicious served over quinoa, rice, or gluten free pasta.
This is my favorite brown rice pasta. I’ve tried several others, and this comes the closest in texture to wheat pasta. I think the elbows are better than the other shapes.
My favorite gluten free flour.
