Look Ma, No Gluten!

Some things I've missed since I began my GF diet last November: convenience foods.   So many companies just don't provide enough information on their label for consumers to know if the product is "safe" for those of us with celiac disease. 

I finally got around to emailing my favorite barbecue sauce company and learned not only is Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce gluten free, they are going to change their label to indicate such.  YES!  I can have my favorite barbecue sauce again!!  Life is good!!

And then, quite by accident, I discovered that (at least some) Wishbone salad dressings are gluten free.  We had a potluck at work and I'd forgotten to bring my own salad dressing.  I checked out what some of the other people had brought.  Was pleasantly surprised to find Wishbone is GF!  I'm thrilled to pieces because I really haven't found an Italian salad dressing recipe I liked enough to make more than once.

Bottom line:  These products are much more economical than the specialty GF products, and they taste great.  AND I can spend a little less time in the kitchen - which means more time for quilting!  :)

I feel your pain. I am allergic to milk. You cannot believe how many things contain it either directly or indirectly. You have to be ever vigilant. My husband and I went out to lunch the other day, which is always a challenge, and the young waiter assured me I could eat a certain dish because it was made with yoghurt. We had to explain to him that yoghurt was made with milk. Good luck to you!
