Day 2 of GF diet. Kitchen on main floor is gluten-free zone. All foodstuffs that might have even a trace of gluten have either been pitched or relegated to the pantry or the basement kitchenette. Mostly I'm finding that I don't like the GF versions of stuff I used to eat with gluten nearly as well, but it's manageable. And bonus, I found out my favorite cheese ball (I eat it all the time, not just parties) is GF! Also, Mom's Best Crispy Cocoa Rice > Cocoa Krispies! It is chocolaty-er (which so far I can't say for most GF chocolate flavors. Yay for a new favorite cereal!!!!
Did most of my GF shopping at Hy-Vee. Everyone was so helpful! The manager of the health food department told me to be super strict for 3 weeks--even to the point of drinking and cooking with bottled water. If I notice no improvement, it's a bust. If I feel better, I can slowly reintroduce *presumably* GF items like tap water, etc, that wouldn't gluten on the ingredient list but might be contaminated in transit.
