If you are beginning or looking at starting a gluten free way of life it is important to remember to always read the labels! You will be amazed by all the products that contain wheat! I can not tell you how many times I have been reminded of that when I forgot to read the label and ate something, Then ended up with a migraine an hour or 2 later. Many items have gluten free alternatives you just have to be willing to take a little longer to find them. Amazon has a pretty decent Gluten Free Grocery section on their site. We have the luxury of living in an area that most stores around us have a section dedicated to gluten free items. Please note that I would consult your physician before going completely gluten free. For myself it has been life changing!
