When you are eating GF it is so hard to know what to get and not to get. Items are so expensive and if you have more than one person who is GF it’s a huge risk and you feel super obligated to eat what you buy when you have invested so much into it. This is the main reason that I try and make most of our treats. Sometimes, though, you just want to grab something off the shelf or you can’t make it like pretzels. I’ve purchased some things that were so bad I wish I hadn’t wasted my money.
– this pasta holds up very well and doesn’t break up. It also reheats
well, which is important to me. I found that if you boil water and
then pour the leftover pasta into the water and then drain, it works
great otherwise it is dry and yucky.
: Lemon – These were addicting! The chocolate ones are awesome too.
– Great for hamburgers and toast. I cut them into thirds or fourths
and then I had a bun for sandwich and toast. For burgers I left it
whole. These are amazing. My mom found them for me at her health food
store, my friend Kelly found them at Kroger in TN. Personally I would
choose this over any of the GF breads that I’ve had store bought. Their Italian bread is good too, but you have to toast them both before eating. Just lightly toasted for sandwiches.
– This was great, I made it according to directions, but pressed it
into a pampered chef large bar pan. It came out so nice and crisp. I am
going to try and recreate this from scratch.
Udi’s Whole Grain Bread – This bread was so good I wanted to eat the whole loaf, toasted with butter. You can’t really use it straight from the bag for sandwiches though, it’s not too soft. Their bagels that I’ve tried are pretty good too, though, my friend says that you can’t call that a bagel.
This is obviously not an extensive list but it’s a few things that may help you along the way. Maybe you can share some of your experiences or favorite GF items.
