One of the things that pisses me off, 2.5x the price for the gluten free alternative. Not all of us are made of money, not at all of can afford $7 for a box that’ll make 2.5 batches of pancakes.
I’ve had a lot of luck finding gluten-free food at discount stores too! Check Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, Ross, Big Lots, etc.
So I’ve been having a lot of symptoms that point to having a gluten allergy….so I have to start a trial-run of a gluten free diet tomorrow that will last about two weeks.
It’s going to suck :(
And I’m still confused about some things about the gluten intolerance and the gluten free diet. So if any of my followers have been in the same situation, help a sista out!
Make sure that if you REALLY think you have a gluten problem (celiac or non-celiac gluten sensitivity - there isn’t a “gluten allergy” only a “wheat allergy” or those two things) that you check with a doctor about checking for celiac disease first - can be done with a simple blood test but you have to STILL BE EATING GLUTEN in order to have your test be valid.

debating on going gluten free because i’ve heard all of the pros and cons but at the same time, a lot of delicious things have gluten within them.
If you think you have an issue with gluten, then you should probably stay on gluten and get tested for celiac disease before you take it OUT of your diet (because you can’t be tested if you take it out). However, if you’re thinking going gluten-free is a diet, it’s more of a lifestyle for people with celiac or non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
