The Gluten-Free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy: Wheat-Free Recipes With Less Fuss and Less Fat

Glutino Gluten-Free Breadsticks, Pizza Flavor
Nice with a salad, or break them up to make tasty croutons.
EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bar, Peanut Butter
Great to carry in your briefcase for an emergency lunch or snack, these bars come in peanut butter, chocolate and berry flavours. Very tasty.
Glutino Gluten-Free Brown Rice Pasta
Excellent pasta. A bit more expensive than some other gluten-free pastas, but worth the extra price.
Mi-Del Gluten Free Cookies
These cookies are available in a variety of flavours, including ginger snaps, pecan, and chocolate chips. The ginger snaps have a rather strong ginger taste. All are good, and moderately priced, compared to some other gluten-free brands.
Delicious meat products from an Ontario food company. Except for the crepes, most items are wheat and gluten free, and many omit other allergens as well.
Other food products are available from Amazon, and are included in My Gluten Free Store, in the Gluten Free Food section.
There aren't too many types of beer that are gluten free, but I've found a couple here in Canada. They're made by Les bières de la Nouvelle-France (BNF) microbrewery in Quebec. Very nice for a summer afternoon on the patio.
