When I tell people that I’m gluten-free, I usually get the following response:
“So you can’t eat bread?” (…of course, that’s only in lieu of the alternate response, “What in the world does that mean?!”)
If you are gluten-free, you avoid products with wheat and gluten. Luckily, that doesn’t eliminate all grains and starches (and this carb-o-holic thanks the universe for that)!
Here is a list of some of the grains that even the gluten-free can enjoy:
- Corn and cornmeal
- Gluten-free flours (rice, soy, corn, potato, bean)
- Hominy (corn)
But GF’s beware, make sure to read the labels for hidden gluten-y compounds. If you don’t feel like taking the chance, check the packaging for the the GF stamp. Some of my personal favorite brands include Udi’s, Red Mill, Tinkyada (for pasta!), and Glutino.
