I started this journey by buying EVERY gluten free flour in sight, all kinds of special gf products, some of which I ordered online and paid outrageous shipping fees for. I'm coming to the conclusion that this was not the best approach, and after talking to my daughter Robin (who runs her own gluten free house because her 4-year-old daughter has celiac disease), this has been confirmed.
Robin pointed out that it's better (and cheaper) to identify those things that you already like which are naturally gluten free, such as corn tortillas, AND which are readily available in the local grocery store, and build your menus around them. With corn tortillas you can make chicken enchiladas or fish tacos - many Mexican meals are gluten free.
Sure, at some point you probably want to buy some gluten free pasta, and that's fine. But try having a baked potato dinner; there are lots of things you could put in a baked potato, such as broccoli and cheese or chili....use your imagination! :)
If you want gluten free bread, you don't necessarily have to buy 6 different gluten free flours and bizarre things like xanthan gum; a good gluten free bread mix is made by Gluten Free Pantry, for example, their "Favorite Sandwich Bread". I made a loaf and it's quite edible....in fact it's REALLY good warm from the oven!
In any case, this diet doesn't have to be complicated. You can start slowly with a few simple meals that work for you, and build from there. Go easy on yourself.
