New Series: Gluten Free on a Budget: How to Save Money & Eat Well

Hello everyone! I just wanted to let you in on a new series of posts I'm embarking on over the next little while called "Gluten Free on a Budget: How to Save Money and Eat Well."  The first post will go up tomorrow, and focuses on the basics.  I've learned so much over the last few years of shopping and cooking for my gluten free son, and I want to share that knowledge with my readers. 

I've noticed that one of the biggest complaints of many people who are new to eating gluten free is  their ballooning grocery bill.  This happened to me at the beginning, but I managed to get it under control, and I didn't do it by cutting out everything we enjoy from our diet. From menu planning, to shopping, to food choices and preparation, I hope to pass on the tips and tricks that I use to feed my family and create kid-friendly healthy meals, all while keeping my grocery budget reasonable. 

If there's a topic or question you would like covered in this series of posts, please ask in the comments, or send me an email at  I'm also interested in collecting your tips!  What do you do to keep your grocery bill low? 


  1. This is a wonderful series to do. I'm not celiac but I do offer gluten free cookies for my customers. I know that the cost of gluten free products is high and I suspect that the *trend* to eat gluten free caused by those who do not suffer from celiac disease or gluten intolerance is probably driving the costs up. Very frustrating for those who must maintain a strict gluten free diet so I'm sure your tips and tricks will be very much appreciated.

    1. Thanks. It's the concern I hear most about going gluten free, and it always makes me sad. hopefully I can offer some useful ideas.

  2. Nice post and Thanks for this useful information:-)
