Starting Out On A Gluten Free Quest

I understand that it can be a big deal to give up gluten. I am here to help you with your quest for better health by eating gluten free.

The first step is to understand what contains gluten. Anything made out of flour (white or whole wheat), like bread, pasta, pastries, crackers, and many cereals. Rye, spelt, and barley also contain gluten. Oats may be contaminated with gluten – so make sure they say “gluten free.”

For more details, please refer to my blog posting titled: What is Gluten and Why is Gluten an Issue? as well as this article published at Experience Life in which I was interviewed about gluten (and the leaky gut that it causes).

So what are you going to eat instead?
You CAN eat rice, corn, potato, quinoa, millet, meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and beans (that is, unless you are allergic, intolerant, or if they don’t work for your blood type).

While it can be hard to imagine at first, after eating gluten free for over a year, I find that there are so many gluten free foods to choose from. Watch those labels on packages carefully! Make sure it says, “gluten free” and at restaurants, be sure to tell your server that you are eating gluten free. See my guidelines for eating out below.

I post information on tasty gluten free foods on Twitter and on Pinterest. Please do join me there.
