A Resource Guide for the Gluten Free

A week or two ago, I told Lee Tobin at the Whole Foods GF Bakehouse I'd cobble together a list of GF resources for him to share with employees of Whole Foods. I decided to post it here, since it has a lot of resources for anyone who is newly gluten free.

I also ahared with him the awesome "How to Read Labels Handout" that I published here some time ago. This list was written by Jen on the Delphi Celiac Forum.

These resources aren't definitive, and I'm sure I left someone out. Don't be angry if I did. Do me a favor: If you want me to add you to this list, let me know in a comment.
