I've been trying all sorts of foods that are already prepared yet are Gluten Free, Wheat Free and typically Dairy Free. What I have found is that almost everything has Bleached Wheat Flour. It's amazing and a bit scary to see how much we rely on Wheat. Did you know that if you visit Taco Bell, their taco shells are NOT corn based? Yeah, it made me sad too. I was actually surprised as I walked through the grocery aisles to see how many foods contain wheat. Well, you will be pleased to know that the following foods are wheat free and very good too.
First, I want to share with you my new favorite cookies. These taste great, conquer the chocolate craving and if you eat the recommended serving, won't live on your hips either. Yes, you only get 12 cookies for the price of two packages of Oreo's (on sale) but they aren't supposed to be a meal and after two months of not eating cookies, this was a great treat. I found these at WalMart and was actually surprised at the small Gluten Free area that WalMart has. Surprised in a good way because it was easy to find and had some of the foods I love from Sawall's but at a more affordable price. Oh, and they use cocoa instead of chocolate so I don't have to worry about the dairy put in chocolate.
I hope this helps. I've been asked by different people to show pictures of the boxes and the foods. I wish a blog had done this a few months ago when I started my Gluten Free Search. Today I finally (after a 2 1/2 month wait) get to see the new Endocrinologist. Today I will get answers to my Hyper Thyroid Auto-Immune disease...because the internet has way too much information (sometimes) and it can drive a person crazy wanting to figure out what is happening to themselves when their other doctors only give vague answers as they refer you to the next specialists. Argh! I know it's as frustrating and confusing as it sounds.
