Gluten Free

Anyone else notice how easy/difficult it is to find restaurants and grocers along the GDMBR that offer GF choices? Wife has Celiac's - avoiding gluten is not a fad diet choice.

My guess is you'll have to take along a lot of your food and use food drops.  Small town America won't have much gluten free food, or finding it will be spotty.

From what I remember where the TransAm (and our jog to the north) overlapped the route, you'll enjoy lots of steaks and baked potatoes in town.  I suspect you'll be looking at lots of rice and Oreos from the grocery stores, though.

I should note that my trip through there was a while back, and it's possible more of the gluten-free mixes and breads might pop up now than then. 

Another option might be ordering gluten free items on-line and having them delivered to General Delivery at the post offices.

Edited to add: Oops, scratch the Oreos.  I thinking about another poster who found Oreos were dairy free.

This is really not an easy task and is best tackled with a lot of preparation.

I haven't had too much experience with it so far, but maybe the one or other app for gluten-free restaurants can help.

My wife also needs to follow a gluten-free diet. We should get used to it and organize the proper buying process. currently, we order the needed products primarily online but it would be great to know other places. Thanks for sharing. Any updates are appreciated though.

These days we have a huge choice of gluten free products.
If you don't eat bread at all, it is important to do an extended blood test at least once a year and see if you need to take some extra vitamins or/and supplements. All the information about those can be found online on canada drugs website, which is very easy and convenient.

I've noticed the incredible variety of gluten-free products available these days, it's such a game-changer for those who can't have gluten. And your tip about getting an annual blood test to check for any potential vitamin or supplement needs is fantastic advice. Thanks for sharing that, and if you're ever looking for a gluten-free restaurant near me, just let me know!
