Gluten free: two great sales and a free app

April 23, 2013

For the next two weeks I am trying to follow a gluten-free diet in order to determine whether I have a gluten allergy. It’s harder than I thought: I miss baking! Fortunately, Amazon has a sale on two gluten-free flours, so once those arrive I’m going to do some experimenting. For those of you who are gluten-free, I thought I’d share these sales. I also discovered a free app that’s been very helpful.

Right now, you can get Bob’s Red Mill tapioca flour for $9.67 for a 4-pack of 20-oz bags when you choose the Subscribe & Save option (which can be canceled.) That makes it $2.42/bag.

You can also get Bob’s Red Mill brown rice flour for $10.62 for a 4-pack of 24-oz bags when you choose the Subscribe & Save option. That makes it $2.66/bag.

Also, when you sign up for 5 or more Subscribe & Save items, your discount changes from 5% to 15% (or 20% if you’re an Amazon Prime member, which we are). (You do also need to be a member of the free Amazon Mom program, and you can do that here.) I found some other items we were needing that I don’t usually have coupons for and added them to my subscription to get this discount. I always set my delivery to 6 months. Remember, it’s easy to cancel your Subscribe & Save items if you decide it’s not that great of a deal the next time around.

I’ve also been using the ShopWell app, which is available for free on iTunes. It’s not just for those who are avoiding gluten: you can customize it to help you avoid lots of different ingredients, and it also makes recommendations based on general healthy eating. However, for avoiding gluten it’s been extremely helpful. You just scan the UPC code on the item in question, and if it contains gluten the app gives you a red warning sign. Highly recommended.
