PHOENIX -- If you're embracing a gluten-free lifestyle, you know how difficult grocery shopping can be -- even if gluten-free is not new to you. For those who are just going gluten-free, shopping can be a nightmare.

An expert on living gluten-free, Ken Scheer of Rock a Healthy Lifestyle, who is gluten intolerant himself, shared some label-reading tips. There are specific things you need to look for, and it's not always black and white.

"My ultimate goal is to help others that are recently diagnosed with gluten intolerance, increase the awareness in restaurants so that they can enjoy eating out and providing resources to others while making their transition as simple as possible," Scheer wrote on his website.
