GF HFCS Freedom

When I was first diagnosed with DFI, I wasn't sure how shopping and eating were going to be.   I have learned grocery shopping does take what feels like 5 times longer, since I need to read every ingredients and figure out the fructose to glucose ratio.  Luckily the gluten free aspect is easier.   Though I still need to read the ingredients to make HFCS, Agave or any type sugar alcohol doesn't appear.  If it weren't for places like the Linden Hills Co-op, Whole Foods and Lunds Byerlys, I think this would be more difficult.  

Favorite products so far are (please note these are products that fit the DFI lifestyle first)
Namaste Brownie Mix. 
Simply Organic Pumpkin Cake
Whole Foods Prairie Bread.   (Most GF breads are very dry but this one is really flavorful)
Quinoa Elbow Macaroni
Liberte Yogurts (even the ones that are on the DFI no list seem to be fine for me ... knock on wood)
Mexican Coca Cola - believe it or not this is made with sugar and not HFCS.

More will be coming but I am glad this is turning out to be easier than one might think.
