I shop at a store called MOM's in Bowie, MD and all the above items can be found there, But some of the items can be found at BJ's like the yogurt and cheese.
Also I know you can find all the items online or at Whole Foods

If you can't find these things at your local store talk to the manager.

The key is to stay away from anything that is packaged in the store like deli meats or bulk items.
I also stay away from products and companies that produce other wheat or grain products like Kraft.

  2. How about potatoes? Does the starch in them (or in their products-ie chips) have any ill effects? I'm just beginning a GF diet and must admit it's more difficult then I thought.

  3. I hope I can help with your journey. Potatoes are a great food to eat. We do eat a lot of potatoes. The also have nutrients you don't think of. Check out the nutrient list.
    The problem will come with packaged potatoes. I have found the only brand of chips I trust not to be contaminated are the KETTLE brand.
    There is a lot of cross contamination in the market so after a year and a half of food shopping I stay to the list I have published here.
