    Hi caddie, there are lots of great gluten free recipe books out there - Freedom Foods who create alot of gluten free products have put one out which has lots of 'everyday' recipes and they're easy - you can purchse the book off their website or from book stores.
    Also check out the health food section at the supermarket too - so many new products coming out every day and they're finally yum and taste normal!!

    this is so yummy when you serve with unwipped cream just trickled over whist hot or can be eaten cold too. my inlaws actually loved this and they hate gf foods!!!


    i have found there are a few good books out there, bought some for my mum, also, theres tons of food in the healthfood isle insafeway. Orgran foods can sometimes not be so nise but freedom foods are the nicest. even their immo tim tams are soooo goood!!!! oh and when you can get them at coles, freedom foods potato chips are fantastic!! but they are not always on shelf so when you see them buy a few!!

    when i was ill i found it hard at first but really if you read packets of the food you buy youll find that you can still have some of your favs!!
    liks dons ham, if you read bottom right hand corner, their ham and hot dogs are gluten free. and my mum has put me onto these little chocolate puddings that are gf, i can eat wheat again but istill eat them!!!
    good luck, but be careful witht he gf bread some is noce, but you generally have to freeze it and thaw when you want to eat it - thats what i had the most issues with, but you can get flavoured corn cakes to have sandwiches in.
    oh, and check out muffin break, they do fantastic sweet and savoury gf muffins!!!
    i dont know if it wil effect you, but white sugar makes soem coeliac ppl sick, so maybe go onto raw!! and remamber to get all your vitamins!!!
