Super Delicious & Gluten-Free Meal Guide, Recipe Post #704: Chili-Lime Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Cream
I’m gluten-free, so what does that mean? Well, being gluten-free means avoiding foods made with gluten, which is a type of protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and other grains. When you’re gluten-free, you’ve got to be mindful of what you’re eating, since many different types of food contain gluten even if it’s not obvious. Foods like bread, pasta, beer, and other baked goods are the most obvious sources of gluten, but it’s also present in things like cereals, salad dressings, sauces, and even some candy bars. One thing is certain, no gluten-free diet is boring. Growing fruits and veggies, unprocessed meats, fish, nuts, dairy, and rice are all good options if you’re trying to stay gluten free. Many restaurants now offer gluten-free options, and there are a ton of gluten-free products available for baking at home. Clearly, gluten can be detrimental to good health. It’s been linked to chronic health issues that lead to syndromes such as Celiac and irritable bowel, amongst others. For individuals that have a gluten intolerance, going gluten-free can help to alleviate a range of illnesses, from digestive issues to fatigue, skin issues, and mood swings. So, being mindful of what you eat to avoid gluten is really important.
