Gluten-Free From A to Z

The other day RK and I went out to lunch. Being an amazing friend, RK found out that a local Thai restaurant had a gluten-free menu, so I had spicy fried fish for lunch! It was delicious!

While we were on the subject of my new gluten-free lifestyle, RK and I started talking about gluten-free products we had tried – which ones tasted good, which ones tasted bad, which ones were too expensive, etc. It was then that RK suggested that I should keep some kind of a chart, so that we could remember which products we liked and which we didn’t.

I realized that RK was right – we ought to review and keep track of the gluten-free products we buy because some of them can be a little pricey. The price is totally worth it if I enjoy eating them, but otherwise those products should be avoided in the future. APL thought the list was a great idea too. But we decided that rather than keeping the list for ourselves, we would post it online, in case other gluten-free people might find our reviews useful someday.

Our new blog is called: Gluten-Free from A to Z. Each product entry includes the name of the product, the brand, the location we purchased it, how much we paid, a review from A (APL) and a review from Z (me). We thought reviews from each of our perspectives would be interesting – APL’s because he can compare gluten-free products to regular products, and me as a person on an entirely gluten-free diet. Unfortunately, so far APL and I have said almost the same thing on every product we have reviewed! We must have really similar taste and/or spend way too much time together! But I’m sure as we learn to be more specific with our reviews, we will each develop our own style.

In the future we hope to include gluten-free recipes and info about eating gluten-free at restaurants on the blog as well. In the meantime, we’re just enjoying trying these products together and writing the reviews. It’s been a really fun project for the both of us.
