Starter Grocery List

Today I went through some of the gluten-free cookbooks I bought at Barnes and Noble and made a grocery list from the ingredients that are used the most.

Here is my list...

  • Dry Milk Powder
  • Yeast
  • Dough Enhancer
  • White Rice Flour
  • Tapioca Flour
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Unflavored Gelatin
  • Egg Replacer (if you don’t eat eggs)
  • Brown Rice Flour
  • Potato Starch
  • Corn Starch
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Almond Meal/Flour (EXPENSIVE but worth it)
  • Buttermilk Powder
  • Sorghum Flour
  • Gar Fava Flour
  • Guar Gum
  • Confectioners Sugar (Powdered Sugar right?)
  • Sweet Rice Flour (you can find this for about 99 cents at an Asian food market)

I found I also needed the following to make life easier...

  • Tamari Soy Sauce (they have a gluten-free one with a silver label and worth it)
  • Tomato Paste
  • Crushed Garlic
  • Jovial gluten-free Pasta
  • Brown rice
  • Jasmine Rice
  • Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Oats
  • Gluten-Free Chicken Broth (they sell a brand at Costco by Pacific Natural Foods)
  • Roasted Garlic Rice Vinegar (great to cook with. Stir fry fresh vegetables)
  • Braggs Liquid Amminos
  • Gluten-Free Teriyaki Sauce (Here’s another by Tamari)
  • Pamela's Pancake Mix
  • Betty Crocker Gluten Free Mix (AMAZING)
  • Canyon Bakehouse bread
  • Time to go to La Farfalla Cafe every Friday night to have a fantastic cooked gluten free meal and dessert (this is my hang out peeps!)

Now where do I put all this good stuff and how do I store it so that it doesn't get mixed with the non gluten-free goodies? Maybe I will find a Tupperware consultant!

What is Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease is a disease of the small intestine. The small intestine is a 22 foot long tube that begins at the stomach and ends at the large intestine (colon). The first 1-1/2 feet of the small intestine (the part that is attached to the stomach) is called the duodenum, the middle part is called the jejunum, and the last part (the part that is attached to the colon) is called the ileum. Food empties from the stomach into the small intestine where it is digested and absorbed into the body. While food is being digested and absorbed, it is transported by the small intestine to the colon. What enters the colon is primarily undigested food. In celiac disease, there is an immunological (allergic) reaction within the inner lining of the small intestine to (gluten) that are present in wheat, rye, barley and, to a lesser extent, in oats. The immunological reaction causes inflammation that destroys the lining of the small intestine. This reduces the absorption of dietary nutrients and can lead to symptoms and signs of nutritional, vitamin, and mineral deficiencies.
