Gluten Free Items I've found outside of the "Gluten Free Sections"
I'm always looking for items in the grocery store that used to be on my shopping list that I can use now. I was VERY pleased to discover that two of my favorite staples are GLUTEN FREE! This is a feeling that only a person with a gluten issue can possible understand. I used to go buy whatever I wanted without one thought of what the ingredients were in my favorite products. I just liked them, and that was all I needed to know. Now however, I am constantly scanning labels (which I've gotten pretty good and fast at doing, I must say) and when I scan over my old favorites and find that they're safe....pure heaven!
Okay, ready for two of the items that I've found? Here they are:
Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix
Fabulous product indeed! Love it as a salad dressing, but also use it in many of my recipes to add flavor. I like to add it to green beans, veggies, meat loaf, hamburgers, dips, chicken, and the list goes on. I called Kraft when I first looked at the label, as it has undefined spices listed on the label, and they assured me that it's gluten free. Clearly a win for Susan on this product!
Alouette Soft Spreadable Cheese
My mouth waters every time I think of my Garlic & Herb cheese spread with my favorite gluten free crackers. YUM! I used to buy this product pre-gluten free, and I can still buy it now. It's usually on sale at Kroger, and when it is, I stock up. I also use this product on a variety of dishes since I know it's safe and delicious. I use it as a dip for my crackers, veggies, in place of mayo on sandwiches, on chicken, on pasta, etc...
I'll continue to share my "normal" foods that I find to be gluten free. I find new ones everyday and love sharing my information with all of you. If you have any questions, please drop me a line and I'll be happy to help you if I can.
From my home to yours, I wish you the best gluten free day ever!
