I'm going gluten free for a few months as an experiment.
Does anyone have any experiences with this?
The gluten free bread looks awful and hard, and im wondering if anyone has suggestions to try out.

i have been allergic to wheat since..... i was 10 so for 8 years. I have found my favorite bread so far is spelt bread. Some people can have spelt others cannot so you will have to experiment with it but check out the Berlin Bakery. Most of their stuff is pretty good. Good luck!!! Let me know if you need any more help.

I just ate a lot of rice cakes for the few months I was going wheat free (turned out I was not allergic, but I had started to develop an intolerance from eating far too much wheat and not enough other stuff. So going wheat-free for a while helped my digestive system kind of regroup and also got me in better habits of eating a variety of things). All the non-wheat breads I tried were horribly expensive to buy, complicated to make, and honestly I didn't think any of them tasted very good!

Rice cakes with egg salad or tuna salad on top are yummy and I still prefer them to bread sandwiches.

Rice based pasta is pretty tasty, and so is corn. They cook faster than regular pasta though so watch out.

I started experimenting with cooking grains like barley (I don't know if barley is gluten free tho), millet, quinoa, and spelt as a change from pasta or rice. They are all very tasty and I still use them a lot. Barley is especially good if you make a pilaf with it. And I tried different kinds of rice instead of just the white kind. My favourite is a combination of brown Basmati rice with wild rice.

I bookmarked this a while ago, but haven't made it yet so I can't vouch for its taste.  Seems interesting though.

We try to eat wheat free as much as possible too.  Have you tried any of the Bob's Red Mill products?  They are usually in the health food section at the stores, and I know he's online, but shipping isn't cheap.  They have some wheat free bread mixes. We make a lot of wheat free waffles and pancakes with a combination of many types of flours.  There are also some wheat free breads in the frozen section of the health food sections, they are made with "live" grains. I've found them to be pretty good.

A lot of times i will make a "sanwich" & wrap my fillings in a big lettuce leaf & skip the bread. I just roll muy turkey & cheese around a big wedge of picekl & wrap in lettuce.   yum!

thanks for that website!  my doc has put me on a low-carb diet and i've been having some difficulties with it.  so maybe this will help!

The first place I think of when I think of gluten-free is a blog written by Shauna Ahern

She has a ton of gluten-free recipes on her blog and wrote a book last year which is also great for eating gluten-free.

there's a brand called "squirrley" that's wheat free bread.  i didn't actually notice until i got home.  it's made with whole grains and good things like that, although it is a bit on the expensive side
