Just a little note: I have recently created a Facebook page for my blog and I would so appreciate it if you would click over using this link or the box to your top right and *like* my page! Thank you so much!
I am feeling overwhelmed. I have recently made the decision to try going gluten-free with my son. He has not been diagnosed with anything and I certainly don't believe he has Celiac disease, but there are some things that have led me to believe he may have an intolerance for gluten. So...we're trying it.
And I hardly know where to begin. But here I go anyway!
I do have some friends and family who have gone gluten-free and, believe me, I have been pestering them with lots of questions! They are being very gracious and helpful to me and I SO appreciate it!
I would say that I am a total foodie and have a pretty good knowledge of food products, but when it comes to gluten-free foods I am just at a loss. So I'm definitely in research mode.
I know that focusing on proteins, fruits and veggies is the best way to go, but we do need some carbs in there, too. And my son is a complete PB&J junkie! So right now I'm on a quest for good, gluten-free sandwich bread (is there such a thing?!) that doesn't cost me an arm and a leg. And I'm trying to figure out all of this strange-to-me ingredients ...like xanthym gum, for instance.
I've considered doing this for a while, but it just seemed so ...overwhelming! But I've decided to give it a chance right now while I'm not up to my ears in full-time homeschooling. Feel free to shoot me your suggestions.
If you've gone gluten-free I'd love to hear about your fave recipes or websites, etc. Just leave me your comments and links! And *thanks* in advance :)
