If you are new to my blog you should know I eat gluten-free. I have celiacs disease so eating gluten-free is not a choice, it’s for my health. I was diagnosed with celiacs disease in 2008, so it’s been eleven years of eating gluten free for me. I can personally tell you that food has come a loooong way in the gluten-free world and I am grateful for this.
I am providing a list of gluten-free foods I always have in my house.
Even if you aren’t gluten-free I bet you know someone that is, and this can be helpful resource for them.
Starting in no particular order here is the line-up:
#1-Salad Crisps-Asiago Cheese
When you are gluten-free sometimes it’s the little things you miss…croutons being one of those things. Fortunately, these salad crisps have a wonderful flavor to add to salads and I always have some of these on hand to make my salads more flavorful. Even better, my husband likes these too…and he doesn’t always love gluten-free food:)
#2 Pacific Brand Cream of Chicken Soup
When it comes to cooking, cream of chicken soup is a HUGE necessity. Thankfully, I have finally found a brand of cream of chicken soup that tastes close enough to the original can of cream of chicken soup. Most stores carry this brand now, but you can always order it online as well.
#3 Braggs Liquid Aminos
If you want to have a tasty Asian meal, Braggs liquid aminos is a great soy sauce replacement. I always have a big bottle of liquid aminos in my fridge. One of the great things about this gluten-free product is that it’s cheap! Many gluten-free products tend to cost more than regular products but Braggs liquid aminos can be found at a great price! I have found Liquid Aminos at Wal-Mart, Smith’s and of course online at Amazon as well.
#4 Glutino Oreos
If you need a tasty gluten-free oreo replacement these cookies are for you! Are they the healthiest? Nope. But for that sugar fix, they taste great! I will say I don’t always have these cookies in my house because my family all enjoys them…I guess that says something about them. I have seen this brand of cookies at most grocery stores as well.
#5 Cup4Cup Gluten-free flour
Currently, this gluten-free flour is my favorite. I like the flavoring and the texture.
I have found this flour at Target as well as online through Amazon.
#6 Snyders Gluten-free pretzels
These pretzels are definitely a family favorite! In my opinion they are the best gluten-free pretzel out there…the texture and taste are closest to the original pretzel.
The price is great, usually under three dollars. And I have been able to find them at multiple grocery stores.
#7 Progresso Chicken & Wild Rice Soup
I have been on the hunt for a great canned chicken noodle soup basically since I was diagnosed with celiacs disease back in 2008. The closest I have come in finding a great tasting chicken soup is Progresso brand chicken and wild rice soup. Progresso brand actually has multiple certified gluten-free soups, but my very favorite is the chicken and wild rice soup.
#8 Barilla gluten-free spaghetti noodles
Let me just tell you, gluten-free pasta can be tricky to cook. They either taste grainy or gummy. Gluten free pasta can also be hard to cook because it’s harder to tell when they are ready to eat.
And yet, after much searching and trying many different brands, my go-to gluten-free pasta is Barilla gluten-free spaghetti noodles (and they have a variety of pasta options).
I like the flavoring and the texture of the Barilla pasta.
One helpful hint when cooking this pasta, when you drain the noodles put a good teaspoon or more of olive oil over them because they can get stuck together easily.
Again, I have found this brand at multiple grocery stores and online as well. This particular brand of pasta is not much pricier than the original pastas which is also a plus.
I hope you enjoyed some of my FAVORITE gluten-free foods. I am always up for trying more so if you have any ideas for me let me know!
Until next time,
