Watch for cross contamination. If you have a person in the house that does not require the gluten free diet have a separate toaster, cutting board, strainer, glass storage containers or label plastic containers for only gluten free food (when microwaving or washing gluten particles can get stuff in the plastic container and cause a reaction). Have separate container for butter, peanut butter, mayo, jelly, etc. (buttering non-gluten free bread and then reinserting the knife into a container is cross-contamination).


Thoroughly wash EVERYTHING in the kitchen

Salad bars are NOT SAFE
