Being gluten-free means eliminating all foods that contain gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, from your diet. This lifestyle change can be essential for those with a gluten intolerance or celiac disease, but it’s also increasingly popular among those simply seeking a potential boost to their overall health. There are several foods that are naturally gluten-free, such as: boneless, skinless chicken breasts, fresh fruits and vegetables like red onions and bell peppers, and other unprocessed proteins and produce. However, with today’s growing demand for gluten-free options, many of your favorite dishes can be easily adapted. Take for instance, tacos. By using gluten-free taco seasoning, gluten-free chicken broth and opting for gluten-free taco shells or corn tortillas, you can enjoy this classic favorite worry-free. And don’t forget all the colorful toppings you can add – grated cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, and a dollop of zesty salsa. Being gluten-free can lead to a variety of health benefits, from improved digestive health to increased energy levels. So why not get started on your gluten-free journey right now?
