Gluten free baked goods require very careful monitoring through each stage of production. However, there are ways to eat gluten free without blowing the budget.
Whole fruits and vegetables are naturally gluten free. We benefit nutritionally when we centre our diets around them.
Rice, beans, and lentils are gluten free. Potatoes, onions, and most other root vegetables are usually not expensive.
Watch for sales. Visit farmers' markets. Roadside stands in the rural areas sell seasonal produce the same day as it's picked!
