The alternative grains, rice etc has as many calories as gluten products do. There are plenty of desserts like puddings, rice pudding, etc. Pamela brand is a good cookie. Expensive but good. Paul Newman's Dairy Free, Wheat Free Oreo like cookies are great. My husband likes them better than regular oreos. I'm not sure if you can have barley and oats which are restricted on a "gluten free" diet. Like I said before, I only watch wheat, rye and other some other forms of wheat.
It is going to take a little while until you get into this. It will feel ackward until you do. I don't give it much thought any more and I also restrict dairy, corn syrup and eggs. Not to say I don't feel deprived sometimes, like at parties or at work when they start bringing out the holiday goodies.
