Take it with you everywhere and soon you will have it memorized.

The best way to eat on a gluten free diet is to eat unprocessed food. Try to avoid foods in a can, unless they are for sure gluten free. Be careful with frozen foods as many of them contain preservatives and gluten hidden within the ingredients. Generally if its prepackaged I would avoid it.

The best way to be 100% sure your food is gluten free is to buy it fresh and make it yourself.
