Today is actually day one hundred of the gluten diet
for me. I started out gluten free for about
60-70 days, then i went "low gluten". I still watch
it closely and avoid gluten when possible.
Rice pasta is not bad ( least the brand my local store carries) you just have to cook it longer, about
12 minutes. Some kinds of rice crackers are okay. But my favorite substitute.... corn cakes for pan cakes. I actually liked them better. Look on the package of corn meal you buy, recipe should be there. If not let me know and I'll email you the recipe. Make sure you buy 100% corn corn meal though. THey even hide wheat in there sometimes.
Just another note.... Wheat is even hid in some ketchups, most rice dinners, some corn chips.
