Are there food allergies in your house and you’re not sure where to buy gluten free foods? Here are some of our favorite places to buy gluten free foods that are also dairy free and soy free.

As I’ve mentioned in other posts, my oldest son and I have some food intolerances and allergies. I can’t have gluten, dairy, soy, avocado, spinach, or shellfish. He can’t have gluten, dairy, or egg.

Here is a sampling of where we’re able to find our gluten free foods. Be sure to always check labels prior to purchasing, whether that be online or in-store as product ingredients can change from batch to batch.


Target

  • Yep, you heard me right, Target. They have really expanded their gluten free foods options lately.
  • Super Target stores have more selection than regular Target stores
  • Depending on the item you can get them in-store, via Target.com, Drive Up, Pick Up, or via Shipt (with subscription). If you have a Super Target relatively close to you but it’s not your closest Target, you can switch the location you want them to shop from right on your phone or computer within the Target website or app to be the Super Target with an expanded selection instead of your closest store.
    • Daiya – cheese slices, cheese shreds, mac & cheese, frozen dessert bars, pizzas
    • Canyon Bakehouse – white & multigrain bread, bagels, and other bakery type goods (does contain egg) Often in the produce section
    • Silk – milk, and yogurt; watch out though, some of their yogurts do contain soy so be sure to read labels carefully. I prefer the Silk Almond Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
    • Udi’s Gluten-Free bread, muffins, mug cakes, frozen french dinner rolls, hamburger, and hot dog buns. Check labels carefully, some items contain dairy and most contain egg.
    • Enjoy Life – chocolate chips, mini chocolate chips
    • So Delicious – dairy free cheese slices, shredded cheese, cream cheese, yogurt, ice cream
    • Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free oats, flours – coconut, almond, tapioca, 1 to 1 baking flour, egg replacer, nutritional yeast
    • Epic Bars – chicken sriracha, venison sea salt & pepper, beef sea salt & pepper – these are all amazing on the go snacks or even meal replacement if in a rush
    • Larabars – these are amazing on the go snacks
    • Justin’s nut butter – almond, hazelnut, and chocolate
    • Earth Balance Soy Free Spread
    • Barilla Gluten Free Noodles: Penne, Elbows, Spaghetti, Fettuccine, Lasagna

    • The Good Crisp Company – They have AMAZING potato chips without soybean oil or avocado oil which is hard to find! My favorite is the Sea Salt and Vinegar chips with their original chips being a great runner up.

Amazon.com

  • Over the years I’ve gotten a lot of my food staples from Amazon.com, their selection changes and grows all the time
  • Currently, I get the following from them:
    • These can all be purchased for shipping, without Amazon Fresh Delivery OR you can choose to do that below if you are in an area that they service (I sadly am not).
    • Collagen Peptides I put this in my morning coffee and afternoon coffee to add some extra protein to my diet.
  • Try Amazon Fresh Delivery
    • Within the Amazon Fresh Delivery page you can narrow down options by clicking on “gluten free”
    • Right away I see pantry staples such as Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers, Simple Mills cookies, Mission GF Tortillas, Enjoy Life snacks, and GoGo SqueeZ fruit on the go pouches.

Wild Pasture

If you’re looking for farm fresh, organic, grass fed and finished, pasture raised chicken, beef, pork, and fish, check out Wild Pasture. They have great prices on their boxes of meat that you can either buy as a one-time purchase or as a subscription which they’ll send you as often as you’d like AND you actually get to choose what you get!

The meat from Wild Pasture farmers is more nutrient rich and has a positive environmental impact, which is extremely important to me, and hopefully you too!

I picked the smaller of the two subscriptions since my boys still don’t eat a whole lot. I love being able to pick out each item equaling 15 lbs of organic, pasture raised meat so I know exactly what I’m getting and can meal plan ahead of time. I also added on some St. Louis ribs, meat snack sticks, and salmon.

I like to save money and do my research, so before I purchased I figured out how much it would cost from my local grocery store for conventional meats and then for organic meats from the co-op about 20 miles away. All in all, it wasn’t much more than conventional meats AND it was much cheaper than my local co-op. I’d much rather be eating organic meat than conventional for the health benefits and taste!

Great quality, great price, and convenient! PLUS if you sign up through my link in the button below, you get $20 off your first order PLUS 20% off your meat for life if you sign up for a subscription!!

How it works; customize your order, get your delivery, cook, eat and enjoy!

Other Stores

From what I’ve heard, HyVee, Fresh Thyme, Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods have a vast selection of gluten, dairy, soy, and egg-free products as well, I just don’t have them near me so don’t shop them.

I’m sure there are a lot more places to buy gluten free foods but here are just a few places I tend to shop. Feel free to add your own below in the comments!!
