Mainstream Gluten-Free Pantry Staples


When Mark went gluten-free many, many moons ago, he had a rough time. He truly felt like there was nothing he could eat and enjoy even though he is married to someone who writes recipes and cooks for a living. Over time, as he began to feel more energetic and generally healthier, he fully understood that his old way of eating (a diet of English muffins and cereal) might not be ideal. People go gluten-free for many reasons, for Mark it was a dietary choice rather than a medical necessity.

Cooking for Mark and my children is one of my daily joys, but I don’t like to to have to continually wonder whether I have the right items in my pantry. There are certainly a LOT of gluten-free products on the market—many of them quite good and tasty—but I have always preferred a more whole food, nourishing approach to eating…and leaning towards vegetarian. I do take advantage of some gluten-free convenience items because sometimes dinner has to be brainless and easy like Taco Tuesday or Spaghetti Wednesday.

So here I’m sharing some of the go-to staples that  consistently show up on my grocery list…

I love GFree Overflow for a quick check on gfree ingredients, there are also lots of apps available to make gfree leaving easier.

Gluten-free living doesn’t have to be complicated. Take a deep breath, you’ve got this!
