    Whether you don't consume dairy &/or gluten for your own health issues or for personal preference, you know what a challenge it can be to find delicious, tasty substitutes for the foods you once loved & enjoyed. Especially if you're lactose intolerant, have Celiac Disease, or any other allergies/medical conditions & you can't even handle even a small amount of gluten/dairy without suffering from horrible reactions.

    What are some of the yummy gluten free &/or dairy free foods you've discovered? If you buy your own groceries, how do you manage prices? Do you have any favorite brands? Delicious recipes? & if you go out to eat, what do you get? Are there any restaurants in particular that you find gluten free & dairy free friendly? Feel free to share any tips, hints, or meals.

    One of my favorites is dairy free & gluten free "ice cream".

    You chop up bananas, freeze them for about an hour, take them out, & blend/whip them until they're about the same consistency of ice cream.

    Add peanut butter for extra flavor if you'd like. Or add vanilla soy milk to make it into more of a shake, vanilla extract, dark chocolate chips, gluten/dairy free cookies, shaved coconut, or even coconut cream to make it thicker.

    I can't believe that no one has posted on this yet!

    Kinnikinnik's cinnamon sugar donuts are just Happy face
    If microwaved in a napkin for about 25 seconds, they're the closest things to state fair mini donuts that I can find. I believe that they're dairy free too.

    Fruity/Cocoa Pebbles are also gluten free.

    I kind of reason the cost of these with the money that would normally go towards fast food. Since being diagnosed with Celiac, salads have become extremely boring and are usualy the only gluten free options for most restauraunts.

    Elana's Pantry is an awesome site for good gluten-free recipes of all kinds. The nutty bread looks absolutely amazing, though I haven't tried it yet.

    Most of the recipes revolve around the same ingredients, such as agave nectar (replacing sugar) and almond flour (replacing wheat flour).

    My grandmother is gluten intolerant and this year, I've found myself slowly becoming gluten intolerant as well. I go through the same dietary problems she does when she eats gluten, even if it's just a burger bun. The stomach aches are horrible, so I've actually been looking for recipes for gluten free food. There's a small section of an aisle in Stater Brothers that has gluten free foods. At least in my area there is. Cute
