Doing is easier than talking sometimes. Here's a place we can talk about gluten-free or other health foods.

Breads:
Canyon Bakehouse from target. Often have deals on cartwheel.
Udi's when canyon isn't on sale. Again also often have deals on cartwheel
Schar's has really really good ciabatta buns

Nice! I don't have celiac just a sensitivity so I'm pretty relaxed about my gluten free products. For example: I don't check to see if they were made on the same surface as product with gluten or anything like that. Wal mart had a pretty holistic selection of gluten free products for a great price! They even have soft bread that isn't frozen which I like A LOT.
I use a lot of grain alternatives in my cooking too. Like zucchini or squash and almond flour for breads and breaded meat. Tim so far has been a fan.

Full-Circle Foods makes a pretty good pizza crust. I used to base my product choices on what my girlfriend liked, but she has since switched to a mostly GF lifestyle too.

We don't usually buy specifically gluten free products, but we do substitute things sometimes, like zucchini slices for lasagna instead of noodles. Erin has also been buying sprouted grain bread a lot lately, which I'm not the biggest fan of but some is OK.

Good call. That's another one we do a lot.

I like this brand for bread. Udi's can taste too grainy for me.

I also know that Burger Jones in uptown has gluten free buns that are made just for them and are really good!

I don't have a trader joe's near me. Most of the time I find heating the bread for just a little bit really softens it up and makes it much more enjoyable.

Jocelyn eats all-grain healthy bread and I can't stand it. If I'm making a sack lunch I want the bread to be as boring as possible so the cheese/meat is what I taste.

Speaking of this, my friend brought over some chips called "Chirps" one time. They are made with cricket flour.

I don't scout out GF products, but Target had Banza pasta (brand that uses chickpea flour) on sale so I bought it to try. I mainly bought it because of the high fiber and protein content
I liked it but Chris thought it was too mushy. It's super filling and cooks really fast!

It didn't taste bad, but it did have a softer/mushier consistency compared to regular noodles.

This is great to know! Most rice pasta I have noticed takes a lot longer to cook, and usually leaves yellow residue in the pot. I will have to try this :)

I told Jocelyn to post here, but she hasn't. She's been feeling kind of icky on and off for a few months and has narrowed it down to some foods. She thinks lettuce is a main culprit. She has been eating some gluten free foods and said that helps her tummy. I don't think it's because of the gluten (she was tested for Danny Illness) but rather it forces her to eat healthier options.

Yesterday she said she made something really good. It involved turkey slices wrapped around hummus. Ick?

Has she tried eliminating dairy? Lots of people can't handle dairy especially as we age.

Yes, that's because as humans, we have developed a tolerance for lactose as adults (so technically the majority of us are lactose intolerant).
