When it comes to health and diet, more people are opting to go gluten free. Gluten free literally means to abstain from consuming products that contain gluten – a certain type of protein found in wheat, rye and barley. So, some of the foods that would be considered gluten free are all types of fruits and vegetables, milk, yogurt, nuts, beans, and many other things that most people would consider a basic part of their diet. Being gluten free has many health benefits, such as improved digestion, increased energy, weight loss, and even reduced risk of coronary heart disease. Plus, since gluten free products are now more widely available, it’s easier to enjoy your favorite meals without sacrificing flavor or nutrition.
