Help me write a gluten-free shopping list

After a month of increasing intestinal distress and no diagnosis despite 4 different doctors, I am going to eat gluten-free this week and see if that makes a difference. I wouldn't have thought that was so difficult, since I don't eat a lot of bread anyway, but I picked up my soy sauce to put in my omelet this morning and realized that the second ingredient was wheat! Yikes!

I am an ovo-lacto vegetarian, eat a lot of fresh veggies; I'm interested largely in sauces and seasonings, and maybe prepared soups & things like that which I could get at Whole Paycheck and which are gluten-free.

I have a friend with Celiac's Disease (gluten allergy) and she says that grocery stores (most) have a hotline where you can call and find out if a product is gluten free. I'll check with her on brands because I know that there are certain foods she can eat by one brand but not with another. Also, most chain restaurants will have a gluten free menu, all you have to do is ask the waiter for it. Outback has one, I know for sure.

I think Pacific Coast Organic Tomato and butternut squash soups are gluten free. (They don't have any gluten containing ingredients listed) Knorr Simply broths don't have wheat as an ingredient. With the packaged broth, add some veggies and you have soup. (Fried onions to the beef broth makes great french onion soup)

Brown rice pasta should be easy to find at a health food store. Braggs Liquid Soy is wheat free. I think most Wizard Brand sauces are wheat free (and vegan). Hellman's Mayo is wheat free.

I have a gluten intollerence and feel SO much better since I started eating gluten free. I tend to eat low carb, but keep up on my fruits and veggies. I do eat rice once in a while. I can tell you the weight is dropping off, my skin looks amazing, I no longer have stomach cramps all the time, my BMs are very normal and not fowl smelling, I don't have brain fog or headaches.

I love the gluten free isle in your grocery store, the pizza dough is good, Walmart clearly marks everything on their products gluten free. Their alfredo sauce is amazing, you can buy the gluten free noodles there, etc.

Also, trader joe's has lots of gluten free foods.

OP here -- thanks for the great suggestions!

I discovered that if you go to the Whole Foods website, and then find your local store, they provide a whole list of gluten-free foods that are carried in that particular store. How cool is that?
