Iron Skillet, Crock Pot, Electric Skillet, KitchenAid mixer, Wok, quality knife, measuring cups, bowls, spoons, wooden cutting board. I also bought a spiralizer attachment for my KitchenAid mixer; love it for squash and curly fries. You can also find manual spiralizers on Amazon if you don’t have a KitchenAide mixer.
Bob Red Mills All Purpose Gluten Free Flour (HEB & Whole Foods)
Bob Red Mills 1 To 1 Baking Flour (I use this for baking) (HEB or Whole Foods)
Bob Red Mills Arrowroot (HEB or WF) Use this as a thickener for sauces, gravies, etc. (it doesn’t take much)
Almond Flour grain free (HEB or WF)
Coconut Flour grain free (HEB or WF)
Cassava flour grain free (Whole Foods)
Bob Red Mills gluten free Oats (WF or HEB)
Guiltless Superfoods seed flour is grain free. They have bread, muffins, cookies, skinny donuts, tortillas, pizza crust, seed flour all at HEB in Bee Caves in the Gluten Free freezer isle. I make the most delicious super chocolate fudge walnut brownies with their seed flour (recipe is here on the website).
Most corn is GMO so personally I don’t eat it or anything with corn in it especially high fructose corn syrup which is in a lot of stuff so check labels. I look for organic corn if eating something like tortillas in moderation. But for the most part I just stay away from corn. I have made tortillas using Cassava flour too and they are very similar to wheat in texture and taste great!
Breads: Udi’s, Rudi’s are good but do contain corn so I do not eat that brand now. Canyon Bakehouse has no corn and is the best for texture, size and taste. I use this one for sandwiches and homemade croutons. (for croutons cut bread in chunks and add in melted Kerigold butter with some Avocado or Olive oil with a little garlic pepper. Heat in oven on 400 for about 15 minutes until golden brown).
Spices & Herbs:
I cook with a lot of fresh herbs from our garden like oregano, thyme, dill, basil, sage and chives. Herbs, onions and fresh garlic add so much flavor. The main herb I use a lot in most dishes is oregano.
Garlic Pepper (HEB)
Erols Seasoning (Paleface Feed. Non GMO, no gluten, no MSG) I use this red pepper spice mix in everything!
Sea Salt, Himalayan pink salt, kosher salt
My newest favorite is Avocado oil. It’s not only a healthy fat it’s also a high heat oil (http://www.avajaneskitchen.com ) You can put it on anything, even ice cream!
Coconut Oil, Kerigold grass fed butter and ghee.
I also use MCT oil in my bulletproof coffee in the morning.
*I use Grape Seed Oil for deep frying only.
I make all of my sauces, salad dressings, vinaigrettes. Hellmann’s Mayo (HEB), 365 Ketchup without high fructose corn syrup from Whole Foods, Kikkoman Gluten free soy sauce, Coconut Aminos (it’s like soy sauce only made with coconut, taste exactly like soy. It’s also a bit more expensive then the gluten free soy brands. It’s half the price too at Thrive Market online at http://goo.gl/2bfyuB I buy a lot of healthy foods as a Thrive wholesale member, free shipping and half the price. I buy ghee from Thrive too), Lea & Perrins Worcestershire, balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, Dijon Mustard. NOTHING WITH MSG (can cause headaches, sometimes serious reactions in some people, I know it does me. MSG is a flavor enhancement and can be addictive. Just google it) More recipes at http://www.glutenfreelady.com
Pacific soup broths are gluten free. They also have cream of mushroom & chicken
Almond Milk, coconut milk
Stevia, Honey, Maple Syrup, Coconut Sugar (I make homemade ice cream using honey and/or maple syrup and full fat coconut milk) Recipes are here on this website.
Cheese from grass fed cows. I eat all cheese except Blue Cheese (gives me a migraine).
Almond and coconut tortillas (Whole Foods). I buy the tortillas from http://www.sietefoods.com They also now have tortilla chips (you’ll think you’re eating corn!) They are available at Whole Foods.
Gluten and grain free granola
Almonds, pecans, no peanuts (peanuts usually contain mold)
Grass fed beef, clean pasture raised chicken and pork (with no antibiotics, nitrates, or junk) all from Whole Foods. We also buy our grass fed meats from Butcherbox. This is the best tasting beef I have ever had, not kidding, and it’s even less expensive than buying it at Whole Foods! I never eat any other beef now. They also have clean pork and chicken. We’ve had the pork and it’s so delicious! Our referral code is: http://fbuy.me/eWLYr When you order from this link we receive $20 off our next order so thank you in advance!
Wild Caught Salmon and Tuna in the can (HEB)
Benito Chips, Bolder Potato or Kettle Chips (Whole Foods or HEB) I eat these in moderation. I always look for chips with the least amount of ingredients and no corn oil.
Organic bean coffee from Costa Rica at HEB
I buy mostly organic veggies when possible. Check out the dirty dozen list at http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ALB00035/The-Dirty-Dozen-Foods-You-Should-Always-Buy-Organic.html
From Dr. Weil: The following "Clean 15" foods had the lowest pesticide load, and consequently are the safest conventionally grown crops to consume from the standpoint of pesticide contamination:
I love cauliflower rice as a substitute for real rice. It’s so easy to make and actually tastes like rice! You can even make refried cauliflower rice adding in shrimp, pork or chicken! Here’s some recipes for Cauliflower rice: http://glutenfreelady.com/recipes.php?id=237
