1. Get organized with meal plans and "specific" shopping list - pun intended.
2. Invest in a few kitchen gadgets and appliances that you'll use often - garlic press, hand cheese slicer, cutting board, yoghurt maker, food processor, etc.
3. Review the various websites with recipes on a weekly basis for ideas.
4. Buy at least 10 lbs of almond flour at a time; freeze for up to 2 years
5. Make double batch of italian sauce and freeze in 1 and 2 cup dishes/bags for recipe use.
6. Also double batches of muffins and cookies and freeze.
7. Make large batch of ketchup and freeze a few ounces in each container.
8. Bake/slowcook a large beef roast and slice and freeze with its juice in serving portions. This is a life saver for me on really busy evenings. Basic soups (not creamed) freeze very well.
9. Get used to going to grocery store twice in one week, second stop is for fresh yoghurt ingredients and a couple more fresh veggies.
10. Spend a little more money on small conveniences like zip-lock bags. Not buying illegal foods will make up the difference in cost.

Two years ago my son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at the age of two and a half years. The doctor explained it and all the info I could get pointed to a bleak, BLEAK future for him and my wife and I. This diet has provided the cornerstone of our sanity as it has virtually ended the symptoms of this truly wretched disease and he is growing wonderfully and is a truly beautiful sight to see.
