6 Gluten-free items to ALWAYS have on hand…


Many of you probably know by now that I have celiacs disease and I have to eat gluten-free.

There are many items that I have that are gluten-free but I narrowed this post down to 6 items that you want to ALWAYS have on hand.

Not only are these items I will mention gluten-free, but they can make your gluten-free lifestyle easier and more enjoyable.

As always, if you have any more ideas for me as far as gluten-free “must-haves” that I should get, please comment below!

#1 Bragg Liquid Aminos:

Bragg Liquid Aminos is the perfect substitute for soy sauce. Who knew soy sauce had wheat in it?! Well I can tell you that NOT having gluten-free soy sauce makes life hard when you are craving many of those yummy Asian dishes. Bragg Liquid Aminos is not expensive and is sold at every grocery store that I have shopped at. Screen Shot 2019-12-03 at 1.19.45 PM


2. Cup4Cup Flour:

It’s important to always keep your favorite flour on hand. My current favorite flour is Cup4Cup brand, I enjoy the flavor and texture of this particular flour. Basically, you want gluten-free flour as a replacement for all the recipes that call for “flour.”

I have seen this brand (Cup4Cup) sold at Walmart, Target and Amazon.



3. Protein Drink

I feel that it’s important to always have a good protein drink on hand. Not just for working out, but for a quick and easy meal-replacement as well.

My very favorite protein drink that is GLUTEN-FREE is Pro 6+ through elevated sports nutrition.

#4 Corn Starch

Corn starch is not only gluten-free but it works great to thicken food such as soups and gravy etc. Having corn starch on hand is helpful and you may find that you use it more often than you thought as you continue to cook gluten-free!

I usually buy corn starch according to the best deal at the store, as I haven’t noticed much of a difference in brands.corn starch


#5 Rice

Rice is gluten-free and goes well with so many meals! Whether you cook brown or white rice I can tell you that I personally use my rice-cooker at least twice a week. Add the Bragg Liquid Aminos and you can make so many tasty asian dishes that are gluten-free.

I personally don’t have a favorite brand of rice but please share if you do!

 #6 Fruit Snacks

I am known for packing my purse full of fruit snacks! Why? Because they are gluten-free and they are something to sustain you if you run into an issue and need to eat something gluten-free.

The Gluten-free lifestyle has gotten easier as time has pressed on. And yet, there are always those circumstances where you may go to an event or party and you have literally NOTHING to eat. That is when having a few fruit snacks on hand can help.

I don’t have a certain brand, I just go with the best deal, but please let me know if you have a certain brand you love. fruit snacks


Until Next Time,
