Hi Nicole,

It's really not that hard at all if you're familiar with what has gluten in it and what doesn't. Just as you've been substituting non-gluten flour, and products in many of your own recipes. All you need to do is to substitute those products for grains and products that contain gluten.

As you've probably learned by now there is gluten in many processed products.

[b:17b3d2b054]You need to stay away from:[/b:17b3d2b054]
Anything on the label that reads --wheat, rye, barley, non tested oats, food starches, modified food starch, unidentifiable food flavorings, anything malted, and any possibility of cross contaminated grains. Also pay close attention to foods manufactured in the same plants with wheat, rye, barley like cereals, snacks, candy, chocolate, even liquorice has gluten in it.

Read labels on
-Soy sauces that don't say gluten free
-Salad dressings and many sandwich spreads
-Creamed soups and thickened foods like gravy, cheese sauces, and stews.

The Morning Star Farms and BOCA brand soy crumbles and products I've suggested in many of my recipes also contains gluten.

Tofu is fine and so is Silk Soy Milk.

I've been hesitant about releasing my Gluten Free Cycle Diet because it's just not that simple to be gluten free. To go gluten free takes not only an adjustment to your foods but also a psychological commitment in knowing you must change your awareness in everything you come into contact with. It can be an overwhelming process in the beginning. Doing it via the web may be somewhat difficult. A local support group and local dietitian who work exclusively with Celiac Disease patients is what's probably necessary in the beginning, but I'm working on becoming a CD specialist.

It takes more than just following a diet. It takes a commitment from the whole family. You can't just use the same toaster, the same knife after spreading say peanut butter on regular bread to gluten free bread. This is the kinds of awareness needed in going gluten free.

I'd be happy to mail you a copy of the Gluten Free Cycle Diet if you'd like, just send me your address in an e-mail to me.

I will be going to a Celiac meeting here in Iowa in the next few weeks to have it looked at by another Dietitian and Doctor who specializes in gluten free diets for verification. I'll let you know if I make any more changes to it.

I hope that helps explain a little.
