Going gluten free sounds intimidating at first, but it’s not as hard as it seems. Being gluten free basically means avoiding all types of foods containing gluten, which is a type of protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. That means no breads, pastas, cakes, cereals, crackers, and even some ingredients in processed foods, like certain types of soy sauce. On the plus side, there are some delicious substitutes for all the yummy treats you have to give up. Foods like rice, quinoa, potatoes, lentils, buckwheat, and corn are all gluten-free and definitely still delicious. Plus, there are plenty of health benefits to switching to a gluten-free diet, like reduced bloating, more energy, and improved digestion. It might take some time to adjust to, but going gluten free isn’t so bad!
