When I started the journey to follow The Feingold Diet and start cutting out things like Gluten, Dyes, Preservatives, Nitrates, Sulfates and Dairy I stood in my local grocery store for HOURS! FIVE HOURS to be politically correct, and I turned over every box and package trying to see if it was safe for my kids. Along the way, I made ton’s of mistakes and learned what brands were truly allergen friendly and what brands tasted good and what brands lied as well as what brands tasted like I was eating a piece of cardboard.I did learn how to cut my food shopping trips down each time but it was an overwhelming journey that I wish I had some guidance for in the beginning especially. A number of times I have heard viewers, friends and family tell me that they want to clean up their child’s diet because they know food is a big trigger but they have no clue where to start, so they continue to give them food that they know is making them sick! ‘
So I decided it was time to compile my knowledge of all things GF/DF and make a list, but not just any shopping list. This list is made into categories that I feel are important especially if you have school-age kids like mine and who are picky eaters. It is made up of ALL PICTURES so that you have a visual for the brands and boxes you are looking for on the shelf, not a sheet full of names that mean nothing to you!The Shopping guide is six pages long and is easy to print and bring to the grocery store until you become so good at food shopping you won’t need it. Even if you already have been following a GF/DF lifestyle and have brands you use daily you will learn of products you never knew existed or new products to the market that you and your family can enjoy.
This shopping list is meant to be a guide to help you begin your journey into the Gluten Free , Dairy Free, Dye Free, Preservative FREE world not medical advice. We ask that you still double check ingredients as every person’s allergies/intolerances are unique to them and companies also change products and where they are processed/made all of the time.
3 WITH ADHD is not responsible for any allergic reactions due to following this list, again make sure you double check the ingredients for your own piece of mind and to avoid any food reactions and use this as a starting point to keep you figure out what will work for your family.
We hope this helps give you some direction so you do not feel so overwhelmed and your first shopping trip is not as long as mine was!
Good Luck ,
Angela at 3 WITH ADHD
