Super Delicious & Gluten-Free Meal Guide, Recipe Post #975: Grilled Salmon with Pesto Zucchini and Tomato Rice

Being gluten free means that I do not include gluten in my diet. Gluten is found in wheat, barley and rye and these ingredients are often found in breads, pastas, baked goods and even condiments. It ucan be hard to avoid wheat, barley and rye, but if I choose to do so I can opt for products and ingredients that are naturally gluten free, such as fresh fruits and veggies, nuts, beans, dairy, eggs, unprocessed lean meats, poultry and fish. When I’m eating out, I can look for dishes that use corn, rice, quinoa and buckwheat as alternatives to the common wheat-based ingredients. The health benefits of eating a gluten free diet can be significant. I may have improved digestion and increased energy when I cut out gluten and opt instead for more fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Also, many gluten free products are fortified with vitamins and minerals, so I’m getting a nutrient-dense diet to keep me feeling my best.

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