Supermarket Savvy

Before you rush off to buy a cupboard full of specialty products, remember that most basic ingredients are naturally gluten-free. You can pick up any sort of fresh produce, meat or fish without worrying. However, regular macaroni and cheese from a box and fish sticks are no longer on your list. You will want to stock up on some staples so that you're prepared to eat well. Five years ago a health food store was the only place to buy special GF items. Today most supermarkets offer just about everything you need. There are also many reliable online sources that are worth checking out.
