How to Save Money on Gluten Free Foods

People are becoming more and more aware of the foods they are eating. This has also sparked an interest in gluten free diets. Gluten is found in wheat, rye, barley and other grains. Some people are taking on the gluten-free diet to live a healthier life, while others are treating Celiac Disease or some other intolerance. No matter what your reason for going gluten free, you probably want to save some money on gluten-free food products. These tips will help you do just that!

Check Your Local Supermarket

Your local supermarket probably has more gluten-free items than you might think. Gluten free diets are increasing in popularity and grocery stores are now realizing this. Grocery stores are also offering more promotions and sales on gluten-free items.  Make sure to watch your store circular for sales! Also keep an eye out for gluten free aisles at your grocery store – I have noticed one at my local Giant Eagle.

Gluten Free Coupons

Believe it or not there are coupons for gluten-free items. You don’t see these coupons as often, but they are out there. When you come across gluten free coupons make sure to print them out! You can also ask friends and family to save extra coupons they receive or come across.

One great resource for finding coupons on gluten free items is Mambo Sprouts. You will find a large selection of coupons for gluten free items and other health foods.

Newsletters

If you have a favorite gluten free brand reach out to them! It doesn’t hurt to send a quick email letting them know that you love their products and are interested in receiving coupons. A lot of brands will send you coupons for simply dropping them an email. You can also get coupons by signing up for a brand’s newsletter. Anytime the brand sends out their newsletter you will often find coupons inside. This is a quick and easy way to get some additional coupons.

Shop Amazon

Watch Amazon for gluten-free foods – they actually have their own Gluten Free Section here. Amazon periodically runs specials on certain food items. You can also sign up for the Amazon Subscribe and Save program and your favorite foods delivered to your door every month (or in the timeframe you select) at a discounted rate. The best part about this program is you can skip a delivery or cancel anytime you want! I have been using Amazon subscribe & save on both grocery and baby items for the last 2 years and I love it! This is especially helpful if you live in an area where not a lot of specialty foods are available.

Buy Naturally Gluten Free Food

Several products are naturally gluten-free. If you cook with products that are naturally gluten-free you are automatically saving money. Milk, produce and chicken are just some of the food items that are naturally gluten-free.

Cook from Scratch

Cooking from scratch lets you control what goes into your food. Cooking your food from scratch also saves you money because packaged foods tend to be more expensive. If you are new to cooking from scratch, take a look at these cookbooks for some inspiration:
