As well as being a new vegan, I've also recently been tested as gluten intolerant (which basically means no wheat, barley, rye, or products containing these grains). Well, I decided that now is as good a time as any to address it - since I'm already reading labels like crazy, I might as well watch for gluten too. I'm here to tell you that it's not as hard as I thought it would be! What a relief.<br><br><br><br>
The biggest thing to watch for is actually fake meat, like Texturized Vegetable Protein, Texturized Soy Protein, and Seitan. All of these have wheat in them, as far as I can tell. So that means no Boca Burgers for me! But tofu and tempeh are fine. I've recently downloaded a gluten-free recipe for nutburgers that sounds really good - if they're a success, I'll post the recipe.<br><br><br><br>
As for breads, I've found Brown Rice Tortillas and a host of breads by Food 4 Life that are all vegan and gluten-free. I just bought the raisin-pecan bread and it is tasty!<br><br><br><br>
I also found some gluten-free flour by Bob's Red Mill, that is really pretty good. I made some of Isa Chandra Moskowitz's Ginormous Peanut Butter Cookies (that's probably not the exact name) with the flour, and they were Y.U.M.<br><br><br><br>
Hm, what else? Well, soy sauce has wheat so that's out, but the Bragg's Liquid Aminos is actually better. And Tamari is often wheat-free.<br><br><br><br>
Anyone else dealing with this? If you've been told to give up gluten but are nervous, don't be! It fits in really nicely with a vegan diet. I'd love to hear other ideas or suggestions or whatever. Thanks!<br><br><br><br>
Oh, and if you're curious about the gluten-free thing, I have described a VERY cursory overview of it here. There's a lot more to it, so you may want to check out one of the many websites, like <a href="http://www.celiac.com" target="_blank">www.celiac.com</a>.

Interestingly enough, someone just posted a free online vegan cookbook in the vegan forum of craigslist which just so also happens to have mostly gluten free recipes in it:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.vitalita.com/docs/ATasteOfVitality.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.vitalita.com/docs/ATasteOfVitality.pdf</a>
