Healthy Living: Readers Share Their Favorites


One of our loyal shoppers and readers, Heather, shared some of her favorite gluten-free choices at Brookshire’s. She says she often finds people who are new to gluten-free eating are stumped on what to buy… and it’s comforting to know that there are mainstream  choices out there. 

Heather’s favorites include:

Chex mix cereals specially marked as gfree (My favorite is honey nut.)

Pamela’s pancake mix (These may need to be special-ordered. They make great pancakes & muffins.)

Van’s frozen waffles (These may need to be special-ordered. They come in buttermilk, apple cinnamon & blueberry.)

Frozen fruit/veggies (I use about a cup of frozen strawberries and Simply orange juice to make a smoothie in the morning.)

Fresh fruits & veggies

Pre-packaged salads (I like the organic prewashed salads available in tubs. Grab a handful, throw in some cheese, and bring your favorite gfree dressing to work for a quick lunch.)

OreIda frozen potatoes: zesty fries & shredded hash browns (I haven’t read all of the ingredients for their other products, but Ore Ida uses cornstarch instead of flour in these.)

LaChoy Soy Sauce & Teriyaki Sauce

Rice

Kraft Cheese

Mission Corn Tortillas (Fry them with a little butter & lime juice – the only way they taste good. They make great tacos & enchiladas when fried like that. My husband and in-laws actually prefer the corn ones over flour now!)

Plain meats (frozen or fresh: chicken, fish, beef, turkey, pork – not processed.)

Dairy products: cottage cheese, yogurt, sour cream; ice cream (I like Goldenbrook ice cream and sherbet the best – no cookie versions, though!)

Frito Lay chips (Frito Lay provides lists of products for specific allergies on their website!)

Corn chips (Frito Lay, blue corn, sweet potato; other natural versions)

Salsa

Applesauce

Dried Fruit (Pick up some nuts & candy to make your own bags of trail mix.)
