Rudi's to the rescue for Hashimoto sufferers

I received a free loaf of bread recently from Rudi's. Thank you Rudi's Bakey! This is gluten free bread that tastes delicious, is chock full of good stuff, and whether toasted or just thawed from the freezer, it is a treat for the tastebuds.
Much has been reported lately about Celiac sufferers, but I am new to discovering I have Hashimoto's disease and from my research it is a good idea to eliminate gluten in the diet if you have this disease.
I already had eliminated gluten and have found products I like, so when Rudi's free loaf arrived I wondered if it would please me and it certainly has. I have had it toasted, and just eaten a slice thawed out. I am eager to try it in stuffing recipes and when needing breadcrumbs. I am very pleased.
While learning about Hashimoto's disease and other autoimmune diseases I am finding out that many sufferers of autoimmune disease would benefit from a diet without gluten and yet I have heard people complain that it is just too hard to stick to it, that the products are not pleasing enough. Well, I recommend Rudi's, you won't be sorry you tried their products.

gluten free is definitely the way to go if you have any kind of autoimmune disorder. I found this out accidentally when I was trying to control my type 2 diabetes with diet. I noticed that eating wheat or any type of grain really, caused pain in my hands and feet. at the time, I thought I was headed down the path of diabetic neuropathy, because I didn't know yet that I also had rheumatoid arthritis. I was diagnosed several months later. That was nearly 14 years ago, and I've been free of my RA meds for nearly 3 years, and I'm convinced it's because I eliminated most of the starchy and sugary food from my diet all those years ago.

Thanks for weighing in on this subject. I wonder if you include brown rice in the no grain. I am new to this trying no grains and am thinking it is a grass but most places say grain, and also starchy...does that mean legumes and potatoes.
Thanks again and GOOD FOR YOU! My nephew has JRA and suffered as a kid and it seems to still be controlling his life at age 30 so I will present this info. to him.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...we really have one life and might as well feel as good as we can feel. HUGS
