With a 50% Celiac household, we've become a 100% gluten free family at home for many reasons -- we have a tiny, galley kitchen with no room for an extra toaster and extra pans, no room to safely prepare gluten and gluten free meals at the same time and a need to simplify our life, being 100% gluten free was the right choice for us. But, that decision has come at a high cost -- my family-of-four's grocery expenses sometimes reach well over $1,700 a month. With two kids under 6, that barely seems possible. But, it's true.
