[Foodie Friday] So you have to eat gluten free….

{sorry i didn’t get this up last night, loosey was sick and i was a little busy taking care of her. please forgive me!}

Okay, so I don’t have Celiac disease and I don’t eat gluten free but I have found that many of the things I love are naturally gluten free. Because my dear friend Emmy has recently started eating gluten free I thought now would be a great time to share some of the knowledge/ learn some more. I have found that a lot of the products that are gluten free are natural/organic, which is the best choice anyway! So without further ado….

STORE BOUGHT PRODUCTS:

*Food Should Taste Good chips
While I can almost guarantee that all of their varieties are good, I especially love the jalapeno tortilla chips with salsa/guacamole and the chocolate with nutella (which is also gluten free)!

*Pirates Booty White Cheddar – Your favorite, Emmy! All of the pirate’s booty varieties are crazy good.

*Udi’s Muffins + muffin tops…. these are really good.

*Larabars!
These bars are great, either as a snack, extra energy during a hike, or a quick breakfast. I especially love chocolate chip cookie dough and key lime pie!

*I love Amy’s natural frozen foods and they have so many gluten free items.

*All creamy soups from Pacific Natural Foods- my favorite. (also their broths + condensed soup)

*Bob’s Red Mill pre-mixed gluten free flour – perfect for all your baking needs!

*Ancient Harvest quinoa pasta- trick your tastebuds and enjoy your favorite spagetti and meatballs (for meatballs try the Jennie O italian styles meatballs)! Your gluten loving friends won’t notice the difference.

*Chex cereal!

THE THREE BLOGS YOU’LL NEED:
*Gluten Free Girl
*Gluten Free Goddess
*The Spunky Coconut

RESTAURANTS:
*Basil Docs Pizza- I haven’t actually tried it, but their GF crust is made with polenta which sounds yummy! and their regular pizza is the bomb!

Honestly, pizza is totally the way to go when eating out gluten free. Also try…
*Naked Pizza
*Mellow Mushroom
*Beau Jos

*Tokyo Joes- if you get the gluten free teriyaki sauce you can choose a rice or noodle bowl!

*Chipotle is totally gluten free friendly as long as you stick to bowls/salads/tacos. Here is their allergen friendly menu.

*THE COMFORT CAFE! I can not testify the deliciousness of this place enough. They are 100% gluten free so there is absolutely no chance of contamination. AND it is a charity!

*While at Coor’s Field, make sure to check out the gluten free concession stand in section 147 for hot dogs, beer, desserts, etc.

There are many more options out there, but these are the ones I’ve found most readily available. Hopefully this is a good starting point for those who are just starting out or those who would like to start eliminating gluten slowly!

Enjoy. 🙂
