Whether you know this or not, gluten is hiding in your house.
Creating a safe gluten-free kitchen, or household, is important to lessen the cross-contamination that can happen in a moment. If you are living a gluten-free lifestyle – you NEED to take care of this.
Why do you need to do this?
When you live gluten-free you need to clean out your home the same way you clean when you move into a new house – completely and totally.
Preparing your kitchen the proper way is very important to live a healthy gluten-free life. Otherwise, you may continuously gluten yourself right in your own home.
Arranging your safe gluten-free kitchen can be a game-changer for your health.
So, are you making these mistakes at your house?
Mistake #1: Skipping the dedicated gluten-free toaster
Every gluten-free house needs a separate toaster- used ONLY for gluten-free foods.
I often hear people say that they have a toaster with one side for gluten-filled bread and the other side for gluten-free. Well, let me ask you, have you ever seen crumbs in your toaster? There are a lot! So . . . using both, even with dedicated sides, will still cross-contaminate not matter how much you argue with me on this one. Maybe you are not reacting outwardly from this, but your body may still be reacting internally. This can be a dangerous step to take. One crumb can make you sick!
Pick out a separate gluten-free toaster and kick cross-contamination away on something you can control.
Mistake #2: Not claiming a dedicated Gluten-Free Space in your Kitchen
If you are the only one in your home eating gluten-free, then you need to claim an area of your kitchen for ONLY gluten-free use.
You don’t need a huge kitchen or space to accommodate this, but you do need to figure out how it would work in your home. Find a separate area for your food, a drawer for your utensils, and countertop space to only prepare gluten-free foods.
On the contrary, if your family is like ours with 4 out of 5 being gluten-free, you need a space for just gluten-filled foods. My husband has his own area for food, his own drawer for utensils, and dedicated pans he uses only for gluten-filled food.
The important part is deciding as a family where this space will be – so everyone is on board. Then, create rules about the space as to how it is kept for safety.
Mistake #3: Not taking the time to set up your pantry correctly
There is a definite step by step method to set up your pantry for gluten-free safety. Not completing this task can cause cross-contamination of your food, and for yourself. Taking the steps to clean out and set up your pantry correctly are of utmost importance to stay healthy in your gluten-free life.

We saw a difference in our home with everyone here 24/7 due to the pandemic and had to readjust, and partially reset our kitchen. Having more gluten-filled foods in our home than ever before, things my husband would typically eat outside of the house, opened my eyes.
We had to review and decide how to reset
our kitchen during our quarantine
to keep everyone healthy.
For my family, setting up our gluten-free kitchen was a game changer!
After our kitchen was secure, we stopped getting sick and really learned to love cooking and baking again – as we ditched that worry of getting sick just from being in the kitchen.
