Super Delicious & Gluten-Free Meal Guide, Recipe Post #248: Gluten Free Cheesy Bacon Polenta Bowls

Being gluten free means eliminating any food or drink that contains the protein gluten, which comes from wheat, barley and rye. Foods that are naturally gluten free include all raw fruits and vegetables, unprocessed dairy products, certain grains (like oats, quinoa, and millet), nuts and legumes. Gluten free substitutes for grains can also be consumed including rice, potato, buckwheat and corn. There are numerous health benefits of a gluten free lifestyle, including improved digestion, decreased bloating and abdominal pain, increased energy levels, and improved overall health. A gluten free diet is typically lower in saturated fat and calories and can allow more whole, unprocessed foods to be incorporated into an individual’s daily diet.
