Gluten free shopping

So I figured this would be the best place to ask. Where is the best (cheapest) site to buy all the gluten free flours, xantham gum, and all that good stuff? My husband just recently has to eliminate gluten from his diet, so we are trying to find other things to make.

Thanks a ton!

I know our local grocery store has a giant gf section.  They put it all together in one spot which is super convinient since my FIL is gf.

Do you have a sprouts or sunflower? They have giant labels on everything that's gf. Probably not the cheapest shopping, but it sure is easy!

Vitacost or Amazon.

Another option is to entirely eliminate grains, breads, pastas, etc. I've actually found that to be easier than try to replace everything with a gf substitute.

Yep, most commercial GF replacement foods (cereal, bread, etc) is full of pretty crappy ingredients.
I don't eat GF replacements often, but when I do I usually get them at the regular grocery store.

That what we are doing now. But it would be nice to have a "treat" every once in a while :) and I would rather make it then try to find something that we can both enjoy.

Here's a link:  http://www.glutenfreemama.com/

I use the coconut flour for my sweet baking, and the almond flour for savory foods.  (I'm sure you could do either, though).  Bob's Red Mill also has a large selection of GF products. 

No need for xanthum gum unless you're baking actual yeast bread...
