Affordable gluten-free products

I am a patient of Ulcerative Colitis. Although in first 5 years after diagnosis, I could eat whatever I want and still be in remission, things seem to have changed in last 2 years (since I moved to the US). I have never gotten into a remission. My gastro-enterologist suggested me to go meat-free, dairy-free and gluten-free for 6 months, to see if it helps.

I have become completely vegetarian and have embraced Indian style cooking (like lentils and stuff), so I have an idea what I can eat when it comes to vegetarian food. But Indian cooking is not really gluten-free friendly and I crave pasta, bread like crazy.

I am looking for affordable gluten-free products that I can incorporate in my daily food habits. A quick search on Amazon gave me a few results, like Ancient Harvest Quinoa Pagoda, 10-Pound Case for $43 but still this is about 4X expensive than regular Barilla pasta.

I was wondering if anybody knows any website that sells gluten-free products at reasonable costs (including shipping, of course) or any gluten-free food supply store in NYC or Hudson Valley that I could check out. I am ready to buy bulk to 10 lbs ot 20 lbs bags, if thats what it takes to save money.

Thanks a lot for all your comments.
