You may find that you cook at home more, since restaurant food is difficult to trust. Making a meal plan for the week can help save time at the grocery store. Also, it eliminates arguments about what is for dinner each evening.
Look for unusual ways to prepare old favorites what will satisfy your cravings. For instance, when I found out I couldn’t eat wheat, I discovered Cauliflower and cheese. Cauliflower substitutes for macaroni, but still satisfies the cravings.
Make a list. It’s often hard enough remembering to read each label, so you don’t need to try to keep your grocery list in your head.
If you are ordering deli foods, don’t forget to ask for a list of their ingredients, too. If they can’t provide one, walk away.
