Gluten-Free House? Or not?

Is your home gluten free?  Or do you have a segregated kitchen? A dedicated gluten-free spot?

How do you make it work?

Our house is a gluten-free haven.  We tried to have a dual household when I was first diagnosed, but it didn’t work.  I got cross-contaminated one too many times, and that was it.  I couldn’t live that way.  So no more gluten.  Even the cats eat gluten-free food.  Of course, cats shouldn’t be eating gluten anyhow, but that’s another article…

Our system is extreme.  But it works for us.  I think what helped was I do almost all of the shopping and cooking, so I was able to control what we eat.  And I like good food, so I buy good quality ingredients and spend a lot of time practicing my cooking skills.  At this point, I’m sure both of us feel we made the right decision.  But I have to admit, at first, there was definitely an adjustment period.

This is what works for us.  But I know that there are other ways to handle this whole gluten issue.

How about you?  What’s your system?  Please leave a comment and let me know how you handle keeping yourself and your loved ones safe from gluten contamination.
