Super Delicious & Gluten-Free Meal Guide, Recipe Post #491: Gluten Free Mexican Chilaquiles
It’s great that you’re thinking about going gluten free! Firstly, let me tell you what that means. Gluten is a type of protein found in wheat, spelt, rye, and barley so being gluten free means avoiding eating products made from those grains. It also means avoiding any hidden forms of gluten, which you can sometimes find in processed foods. Instead, there is an abundance of delicious gluten-free options available, such as buckwheat, corn, potatoes, quinoa, tapioca, brown rice, soy, and other gluten-free grains. Being gluten free offers some great health benefits too – from improved digestion and energy levels to potentially a decrease in inflammation. For those with dietary requirements such as Coeliac’s disease or wheat intolerance, going gluten free is a must. But even for those who don’t have dietary restrictions, the health benefits of avoiding gluten can be very valuable. There are plenty of tasty and nutritious gluten-free meals to enjoy. Whether you’re baking, cooking, or ordering at a restaurant, you can easily find options that are gluten-free. So, make the switch to gluten-free today – you’re sure to feel healthier and happier!
