Gluten-Free Veggie Quinoa Bowls

If you’re gluten free, you know that it can sometimes be tricky to make sure you are getting all the right foods. To be gluten free means cutting out wheat, barley, rye, and other grains that contain the protein gluten. This can be hard since many of us have been eating these ingredients for our entire lives. It may sound like you can’t eat anything, but that’s not the case! There are tons of foods that are naturally gluten free like fruits, vegetables, legumes, dairy, nuts, eggs, and more. Eating this way can improve your digestion, nutrient absorption, and energy levels. You can also rest assured that you’re not consuming any inflammation-causing foods. Who could complain?

Try this as your next healthier meal option to serve up for you and your loved ones:
