This thread reminds me of a news blurb that was on earlier this week. I forget which network it was, but they did a story on celiacs and gluten-free products. And they made the point that as a celiac, you do not have to purchase only specialty gluten-free items (located in the gluten-free section of most grocery stores). In fact, the specialty gluten-free products are generally up to 3X as expensive. There are many regular foods that you can enjoy--you just have to read the labels.
In my grocery store, the gluten-free aisle carries a brownie mix for $8! Do I need a brownie that bad? No. However, when I went to look at the regular brownie mixes (I do bake using regular flour for my daughters), I saw that Betty Crocker makes a gluten-free brownie mix, and it was only $2.99 per box. Specialty gluten-free products charge sometimes more than 3 X the amount of its regular counterpart. I do buy some things in the gluten-free aisle (I love Glutinos gluten-free pretzel sticks), but most of the stuff I get is NOT from that aisle.
