My husband noticed a small article in the “Courier Mail” a couple of weeks ago about Little Box of Yum a gourmet food subscription box, but more importantly, that their August box was going to be a ‘gluten free’ box.
A great way of sampling new products on the market, my box arrived this week with a number of new products I haven’t seen here in Townsville. While not all products are targeted to my teenager’s tastebuds, this would be a great gift for the adult gluten free-er.
I am not sure if there is a cut off date for the August Gluten Free box, but the concept is a great way to sample different products. I do notice a comments box for subscribers to make note of any food allergies, so you might be able put in for a special order box.
Australian Gluten Free Life as well as their magazine subscriptions, also have a “The Box” subscription of gluten free goodies.
It is important to remember that gluten free foods aren’t only found in the Health/Gluten Free Aisle of the supermarket. However when you are first adjusting to a gluten free diet, you tend to shop just in this rather limited section.
As you gain more experience in all things gluten free, you will uncover a few hidden gems.
Below is a link to a few of our favourite (gluten free) foods found scattered throughout the supermarket.
If you are looking for a gluten free magazine packed full of beautiful pictures, inspiring stories, new products and exciting recipes then have a look at Yum’s Summer Issue available on-line.
Here are a couple of recipes that caught my eye: Baked Camembert with Cranberries and Macadamias, Parmesan and Seed Biscuits, Brazilian Cheese Puffs with Roast Beef and Horseradish

I have put together this alphabetical list by product to help you locate those gluten free products that you have read about or that you have heard about but you just don’t know where to buy it.
When we first started our gluten free journey we drove many kilometers to try to find what shops stocked which products. It was an exhausting and time consuming exercise. Hopefully this list will give you back a little time.
