Hello! My household is not gluten-free, but there鈥檚 someone who鈥檚 very important to me who has celiac and is planning to visit us next month. I鈥檓 hoping to be able to feed them while they鈥檙e here without inadvertently poisoning them. I鈥檝e got some good gluten-free recipes, but I鈥檓 worried about potential cross-contamination from cookware since we do usually eat gluten (though we won鈥檛 be cooking with gluten while they are here). I鈥檓 wondering if you have any resources for what precautions are necessary to safely prepare food for someone with celiac. I鈥檓 happy to buy a few things to use exclusively for gluten-free food, but I鈥檓 not sure if storing that with the rest of our cookware would be okay or if it should be stored separately? Would we be better off just finding a gluten-free restaurant nearby and ordering delivery while the person is here? I just want to make sure they are safe and feel welcome.
Hello! Thank you for being willing to take such precautions for your friend. I'm sure it means a lot to them to know someone cares this much for them.
You are correct in thinking that gluten contamination can occur from cooking utensils. Gluten can stick to porous surfaces, even when thoroughly scrubbed, and while some people are not sensitive enough for that to affect them, some are and it's always best to err on the side of caution.
Things like plastic or wood cutting boards, plastic mixing bowls, wooden, nylon and even silicone utensils can all be potential risk factors, even when thoroughly scrubbed. Cast iron and non-stick pans and appliances, waffle iron, griddle, plastic components inside a food processor.) can also be a potential source of cross contamination.
I remember when we found out I was being glutened by an old mixing bowl. I yeeted everything out of my kitchen and bought all new utensils and cookware.
Now, I am not suggesting you do that as you do not live with this person full time. But depending on your budget and if you want to have utensils you know are safe for gluten-free individuals in the future, you could put together a little kit that you can store away for later. I'd suggest a cutting board, mixing bowl and getting a cheap set of utensils. You could also invest in a cheap frying pan/pot and maybe a baking sheet tray. That's pretty much what I take with me when I am traveling, so that I know I won't end up having an MCAS reaction when staying in someone else's house. (For those unaware, gluten is a mast cell destabalizer.)
Make sure they are not being washed alongside your normal utensils. If you normally dishwash your other things, I'd suggest handwashing the dedicated gluten-free things with a fresh sponge that hasn't been used on anything else. As for storing them, try to keep them away from places where wheat flour (or other gluten containing products) might be in the air. You've said you'll be eating entirely gluten-free while the person is visiting, but just remember that also means replacing things like butter and jams, as people often overlook those.
Again, this will all depend on how sensitive the individual is. There are some people with celiac who do not react to trace amounts, and there are other folks who can become extremely sick from even the smallest trace amounts.
Beyond Celiac has some more helpful tips and pointers as well.
If all of these recommendations sound too much, I fully understand. It was daunting when I had to do it for me, nevermind a guest. In that case, finding a dedicated gluten-free restaurant would be the way to go--and a worthwhile venture anyway so you can enjoy some down time not having to cook.
Also, talk to the person and see what their needs are. They might be able to eat just fine using shared utensils, or may even be planning to bring their own anyway, like many of us do.
I hope this was helpful, and again, thank you for being considerate. I am sure it will mean a lot to your guest.

gluten & dairy intolerant and sick as shit: a 鈥渨hat the fuck do i eat?鈥 primer
most gluten-free, dairy-free (hereafter abbreviated gf/df) recipe sites are so clearly written by people who have the energy to cook - consistently enough that they don鈥檛 need to worry about food spoiling - and money for tons of ingredients and equipment. as a person who鈥檚 bedridden a large portion of the time, this is useless as shit!
so here鈥檚 how i鈥檝e kept myself alive the past 6+ months for other sick folks looking for a realistic starting point, in descending order from least to most energy required. in addition to being gf/df, i can鈥檛 eat raw vegetables or red meat, need to avoid/minimize seeds and artificial sweeteners, and try to minimize soy when possible, so these suggestions align with that.
as always, check the labels first! other folks feel free to add on with any suggestions!
gf cereal - chocolate gf off-brand rice krispies are a go-to low-energy meal that can also be a snack
bananas with peanut butter
rice cakes are my best friend - they鈥檙e like 4x cheaper than gf bread and the easiest option i鈥檝e found so far. my go-to is rice cake, vegan cheese, 4 slices of deli chicken, a pinch of salt; 4 of those makes a filling meal for me
gf toast with peanut butter or butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar
gf oatmeal in the microwave, seasoned with brown sugar and cinnamon. if you need to avoid cross-contamination, make sure to only purchase oat products that are certified gluten-free; they can easily get cross-contaminated from wheat in the field
tofu scramble - season with curry powder, garlic and onion powder, chili powder, and salt. add whatever veggies you want - i do (frozen or canned) spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes
gf chicken nuggets - if i have a little extra energy i鈥檒l make a vegan ranch using a vegan mayo base
gf/df pizza - they鈥檙e expensive. i鈥檓 sorry.
gf/df nachos - vegan mince with gf taco seasoning, olives, vegan cheese, corn tortillas chips. for a lower-energy version, i melt vegan cheese on tortilla chips in the microwave and add torn-up deli chicken and seasoning
frozen gf fries - plain or with vegan cheese sauce, vegan cheese, and/or vegan mince (seasoned with garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, and salt)
rice with ingredient - canned beans and/or peas; canned tuna cooked with curry powder; frozen edamame and canned salmon cooked with gf (tamari) soy sauce, honey, and chili powder
fish tacos - frozen fish cooked with cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, pepper; cilantro-lime rice; avocado if you鈥檙e up for peeling/cutting; vegan cheese; corn tortillas
pre-popped popcorn
tortilla chips
gf/df cookies
gf/df chips (crisps) - in the UK, Seabrook is a great gf brand, and the classic ones are df as well
gf/df protein or granola bars
gf/df ice cream
tangerines, clementines, etc - they last longer than other fruits

Hiya, I know this probably isn't your area of expertise but if you have any input or know of someone who can help, I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction. My husband almost certainly has undiagnosed celiacs (because the nhs doc has their head up their ass i guess) and since he stopped imbibing it, we stopped buying any of those products containing gluten. This means I have stopped having it for nearly a month and, last night we got snacks at Tesco (including some cookies I love and the custard donuts I miss) and if what I went through is any indicator I have either also celiacs or gluten sensitivity or I have a new to me and unthought of problem.
To get to the main point, not being able to bake is absolutely devastating to me, its been a favorite hobby and a major comfort action all my life. Coconut flour is miserable to work with due to texture problems. Do you have suggestions on what flour-replacement thing would be best to bother with? I doubt we will be getting any help or advice from our gp(even though we asked over 2 months ago) so we must become a boat, as it were, on our little island north of Scotland.
Ah, friend, I鈥檓 sorry to hear that. And this is actually something I鈥檓 pretty good with because I used to work at a bakery and still baked a lot until my MCAS took away my ability to eat more things.
If you鈥檙e looking for a good 1-to-1 substitute flour, 鈥淔ree鈥 from Dove Farms is a pretty good one. Their rice flours also have a good texture, and their white bread flour (all in the link above) actually makes a really good pizza base.
As far as I鈥檓 aware, Bob鈥檚 Red Mill all-purpose gf flour is available in the UK as well, and also works really well, though I鈥檓 not sure how expensive it is over there. I only ever used the Dove range before moving. They also maks things like baking powder and yeast, and I think pasta too, though I鈥檝e never tried the latter.
I鈥檝e also really enjoyed baking with masa harina for certain things like shortbreads and pie crusts--and of course tortillas! It also makes the best gluten-free potato scones I鈥檝e made since going gluten-free and it鈥檚 really easy to make wonderful potato scone wraps which can sometimesbe very crumbly and stiff with other gluten-free flours.
You could also use oat flour (just grind oats in a food processor until you get a flour consistency), but be warned that while your husband is going through the healing process, he (and possibly you) may be reactive to oats, even specified gluten-free ones. There鈥檚 an enzyme, forget what it is, that鈥檚 similar enough that can make celiac guts unhappy. Dairy can also be a problem, but I鈥檇 advise not cutting it out entirely unless directed to by a physician because you can actually lose your lactose tolerance by cutting it out.
Anyway, I hope that helps, and I am sure people who still live there and have more access to what鈥檚 in the actual shops will have great advice! Good luck and take care.

cold peanut noodles!
amounts of everything are very subjective- make it as spicy or as peanut-y or filling as you want! this takes me about 6 minutes to make, involves heat and minimal stirring, and can be made with just a kettle or microwave. as its written here, it's also gluten free and vegan you need: - one serving of noodles (rice noodles, ramen, etc) - some peanut butter, any type - hot water - soy sauce - powdered ginger - powdered something-spicy (anything from cayenne to black pepper, to taste) - honey, sugar, or similar optional but recommended: green onions, bean sprouts, any veg or protein steps: 1. cook noodles. set aside some (~1 tablespoon) of the hot water for later (or boil some more water in a kettle or pot). 2. rinse cooked noodles in cold water and set aside. 3. mix the hot water with a large spoonful (~2-3 tablespoons) of peanut butter, so that the peanut butter dissolves and becomes pour-able. 4. add powdered ginger, spice, honey, and soy sauce to the peanut butter, all to taste. i like mine very flavorful, so i use two shakes of cayenne, 3-4 shakes of ginger, 0.5 tsp honey, and approx. 0.5-1 teaspoon soy sauce (for a lighter version, begin with about half of all amounts and alter to taste) 5. chop your green onion and any veg or protein. for a single cake of ramen, a handful of toppings is enough. 6. mix your noodles, sauce, and toppings, and enjoy!

This is your reminder to PLEASE make 72hr(minimum) emergency kit if you haven't already
Set aside 1 gallon of water per person per day, as well as extra for washing etc, and have at least 3 days of shelf stable foods that you and your family enjoy, or at least don't hate, also be sure to have a few comfort foods or candies around
There are emergency diets for those needing dialysis, and special instructions for type one diabetics. Look into your local laws regarding emergency prescription refills before disaster hits
If you require extra care, or have a family member who does, consider finding your nearest Special Needs Shelter or Medical Needs Shelter. The rules, requirements, and eligibility for these vary by state and even county.
You will not be able to depend on your neighbors or shelters for gluten/dairy/egg etc free foods or lifesaving medications
