A Gluten Free Shopping List

Q: Can you send me an average shopping list for a gluten free family?
Thanks. I am new to this and need a head start.

A: So amazing that you asked for a shopping list. I had a shopping list in my scanner to post today. Below is a list of what I buy at the supermarket. Some other things (like gluten free pasta and gluten free desserts) I usually purchase at a health food store  But if you don't have access to specialty markets you can serve rice and potatoes and corn as starches which are easily found at the regular market. I don't have rice/potatoes/corn on my list because I had some potatoes and rice. Also, things like Lay's potato chips and Fritos are also gluten free (and dairy free.) Regular soy sauce and Twizzler's both have gluten in them so these are things you need to be careful about. But you can buy gluten free Tamari as a substitute for gluten free soy sauce. Let me know if you need more information.
