Here are some of the brands that I like best. I've tried out most of the ones out there and these are the ones that my whole family likes to eat.
Amy's Organic: DD loves the rice pasta mac n cheese, I love the tamale dishes, hubby and son love the regular mac n cheese and burrito dishes and pizzas. Both kids also like the kids meals.
Ian's Frozen foods: Everyone loves the GF chick nuggets and the fish sticks. Also like the Alphatots (potato tots). My kids didn't care for any of their kids meals.
Namaste baking mixes: LOVE the pancake mix, spice cake mix, brownie mix, and the pizza dough mix.
Wylde GF pretzels
EnerG rice pastas: We use the rice pasta vermicelli in place of spaghetti noodles. I also buy the rice pasta spirals and the rice pasta lasagna noodles.
Erewhon GF cereals: Lots of variety and all the ones we tried taste good.
Clif Kid Bars: These are not GF, but they are wheat free. My kids love the chocolate chip ones.
Envirokidz Krispy Rice Bars: My kids like the chocolate chip and Mixed Berry ones.
Enjoy Life breakfast bars: I like the Cinnamon Apple and the Mixed Berry ones.
Tasty Bite sauces: LOVE all the Indian ones so far...especially the lentils and tomato one
. Just add in your choice of protein or veggies, heat in micro or stove for a few minutes and you have a wonderful tasting and healthy meal. My 2 YO dd loves this with diced up tofu inside.
Boar's Head All Natural sliced turkey meat: No nitrates, GF, and tastes great!
Nana's Cookie Bites: LOVE them all!
Enjoy Life cookies: LOVE THE SNICKERDOODLES! Hubby and kids love the chocolate chip ones.
Places I like to shop for my GF stuff:
Amazon.com's Subcribe and Save program. They have a pretty good selection of GF stuff. You get 15% off the amazon price (reflected in your cart), plus free shipping. You select the quantity and delivery schedule ( every 1, 2, 3, or 6 months). You can postpone or cancel an order at anytime. They send you an email a few days before they process your next order so you can cancel or postpone it. I buy all of our rice pastas, pretzels, and most of GF snacks this way. Saves me money, time and gas.
Henry's Marketplace: They have better prices on their GF stuff that Trader Joe's or Wholefoods and a decent variety of stuff.
Albertson's: They have a small selection of GF stuff in their Organic aisle.
99Cents Store or Big Lots: Every once in awhile I will stroll through there and find some GF stuff for cheap.
Costco: I have tried some of the baking mixes from their and didn't care for them. But I do get the freeze dried fruit, fruit cups, organic brown rice, and Pacific Natural broths/soups from there.
I also highly recommend signing up on all the company websites for the GF products that you like and ask them to send you some coupons. Most are more than happy to do so. I called Amy's and they sent me about $25 worth of coupons..woohoo!

I really like their restaurant guide. It even tells you specifically what you can eat and will sometimes have instructions that you print out and give to the chef/waiter on how to prepare your GF meal. I used this when I went to Bucca di Beppo's Italian restaurant for my best friends birthday party. I had a yummy salad and a tasty chicken dish
. And no reaction afterwards
.Celiac Disease & Gluten-free Diet Information Since 1995 - Celiac.comGreat tasting gluten free casein free bread
LOVE this bakery! If you are in the San Diego area..go check them out. They bake their breads fresh everyday...yummy! And less than $6 a loaf. Cheaper than the cardboard tasting stuff from the store.
