Gluten Free Meal Plan

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, oats and barley while gluten free grains include rice, wild rice, corn, amaranth, buckwheat and millet. Quinoa is also gluten free as it is technically a seed but it can be used just like a grain.

More and more people are eating gluten free and not just because they are celiac.

Many people are gluten intolerant or simply want to give their body a break from it. I have found that people generally feel more energetic and less bloated on a gluten free diet. I will caution you though – just because a product is labelled “gluten free” it does not automatically mean it’s a healthy choice! Gluten free food can be very processed and nutrient poor. The hall marks of gluten intolerance are nutritional deficiencies such as iron, vitamin D and zinc.
