Make a Clean Sweep

A gluten-free household is the best way to limit contact with gluten.

"Clean out your pantry and refrigerator and start over," says Dee Sandquist, RD, certified diabetes educator and supermarket dietitian.

Open containers of peanut butter, mayonnaise, mustard, and other condiments may contain gluten. It's not worth the risk, so throw them out.

If you're not getting all gluten out of your kitchen, consider doubling up on some utensils, dishes, towels, oven mitts, and pans. You'll use one set only for gluten-free free items.

For instance, you might want to dedicate a toaster for gluten-free grains, and use separate cutting boards, containers, and baking sheets for gluten-free foods. That way, you're keeping gluten in its place.
