I Have Celiac Disease, and These Are 9 of My Favorite Gluten-Free Finds of the Year
While it’s not exactly the most convenient thing in the world, there’s never been a better time to be gluten-intolerant than today. Why? Well, because the difference in gluten-free foods today versus just ten years ago is completely breathtaking. Look, I’m not going to lie and say that there aren’t loads of subpar (and frankly insulting) GF snacks, meals, and substitutes lining the grocery shelves. However, between the sour, crumbly, dry, and chalky options out there, if you look hard enough you’ll find some seriously great items. As a Celiac myself (and former pastry chef), I’ve tried nearly every gluten-free product on the market, and have seen huge improvements in flavor, texture, and variety over the past few years. In fact, I’ll go so far as to claim that 2023 rung in the best GF foods I’ve tasted in my life.
So, in honor of the abundance of gluten-free finds we’ve discovered this year, I’ve pulled together a short list of some of our favorites. From my forever-treasured yellow pea pasta to safe-to-sip-on beer, if gluten doesn’t sit right with you, these finds will. Trust me.
