What's In My Pantry and Icebox?

This should help with your shopping list.

Please check with your doctor. Always double check labels and know what you are supposed to avoid. Watch out for the "Gluten Free" products if you can't have dairy or other things. I find a lot of pre-packaged gluten free products have dairy in them therefore I can not have them.


This is a list of items that I find helpful living with two cow milk free and a gluten, egg, soy free family member.

  • Xanthan Gum (Essential ingredient in Gluten and wheat free baking.)
  • Gluten Free Oat Flour
  • Sweet Sorghum Flour
  • Flax Meal
  • Tapioca Flour or Potato Flour (tapioca and potato starch is the same thing).
  • Garbanzo Bean Flour (You can also get dried beans and blend if you have a Vitamix or other powerful blender)
  • Bob's Redmill Pizza Dough Mix
  • Chocolate Chips (read label) "Enjoy Life" is an allergy free brand. I like Guittard but it has Soy Lecithin in it if you are avoiding soy. Soy was on Little "D"s list to avoid but soy lecithin is in everything. Some say that you can have soy lecithin with a soy allergy. Talk to you doctor.
  • Organic sugar (I get it at Costco.) I personally have trouble stomaching Xylitol so I am choosing to bake with it.
  • honey (preferably local to help with allergies)
  • Spectrum Shortening
  • BBQ Pirate Bootie (Read labels on the various flavors. I find all of us can only have the BBQ.)
  • Lara Bars (contain nuts but gluten and dairy free)
  • Rice Cakes
  • Rice Crackers
  • Quinoa Pasta
  • Quinoa (use insead of rice and pasta in dishes)
  • dried white beans, black beans, pinto beans, and lentils
  • Rice
  • Tinkyada Rice Pasta
  • Gorilla Munch Cereal
  • Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats
  • Chex Cereal (The kids eat cereal for breakfast or snacks.)
  • Braggs Aminos (Gluten Free Soy Sauce) Contains soy.
  • Chicken Broth (Pacific Foods Organic)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Molasses
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil and or Coconut Oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • corn tortillas (It's hard to find good rice tortillas. They bake well but don't work in the microwave!)
  • Almond,  (Blue Diamond),Rice, or Coconut Milk (So Delicious by Turtlemountain)
  • Earth Balance, soy free
  • Sunflower Butter (If you can't have peanuts or nut free school. I like Sunbutter brand.)
  • hummus
  • Polenta in a tube or from the bulk eisle.
  • Pecorino Romano (Sheeps Milk Cheese)
  • Goat Cheese
  • frozen or fresh fruit for smoothies.
  • LOTS of fruits and vegetables. Think of those as the main part of the meal.
* I will post the recipe for the ginger radish cookies soon. We buy our groceries through Amazon Fresh and with our "Radish Status" got the gift of a radish cookie cutter. :-)
