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.
