Super Delicious & Gluten-Free Meal Guide, Recipe Post #393: Gluten-Free Lemon Chicken

Being gluten free means eliminating gluten, a protein found in grains, from your diet. Gluten free grains include rice, millet, quinoa, sorghum and amaranth, and there are substitutes for the wheat, barley and rye containing products like hamburger buns, pasta and breakfast cereals. Gluten-free diets are being adopted by some people for health reasons, such as those with celiac disease, gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy. Eating a gluten-free diet can potentially lead to improved digestion, better nutrient absorption, balanced blood glucose levels, improved mood and greater energy. Avoiding gluten-free foods can also reduce inflammation and aid in weight management.
