I got an e-mail a few days ago from a friend who is looking for some helpful hints on what to feed her son. Mara is starting her son on the GFCF diet, and thought a primer on what to look for when meal planning/shopping would be beneficial. So, I looked in my cupboards to see what's on hand, thought about what my shopping cart usually looks like, and shared my findings. Since there are other folks out there who are currently wondering what Zoe typically eats, I thought I'd post this info online.
Since I am a bit on the OCD side, I prepared a nifty little spreadsheet for Flamenco Dad to refer to while I was on vacation. As some of you are aware I am not tech savvy--the mere fact that I was able to create a spreadsheet is something of a miracle. But what should surprise no one is the fact that I can't get a screen shot of the darn thing to appear on my blog.
GFCF Cereal, cold or hot
Hard Boiled Eggs
Fried Eggs, prepared without butter

Note that any sandwiches are made with GFCF bread, hotdogs are served w/o bun, cereals are served with soy milk, eggs are prepared w/o butter, the Thai Noodle Soup is a variety that is without milk. Please check labels--they are extremely important.
I'm compiling a list of favorite GFCF products by category to list on my sidebar . If there is a product anybody would like to nominate for the list of favorites, please feel free to email me. I welcome input from all foodies out there, so if you've got a favorite, make your voice heard and share with the group!
