Super Delicious & Gluten-Free Meal Guide, Recipe Post #573: Spinach Artichoke Gluten-Free Pizza

Being gluten free means eliminating all foods containing gluten from your diet, which can be daunting but also rewarding. Gluten free foods include any fruits and vegetables, dairy products, legumes, gluten-free grains like quinoa, corn, buckwheat, and nut flours, and some alternative wheat products such as amaranth, teff, and millet. Many gluten-free foods nowadays, like breads and snacks, are commercially available, but cooking simple meals at home like salads, soups, and omelettes can be a healthy and tasty way to eat without gluten. Eating gluten-free has various health benefits. People often feel more energetic and alert after eliminating gluten and overall have fewer digestive problems. Following a gluten-free diet helps people with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivities to prevent symptoms, including chronic stomach pain and inflammation. Additionally, some people with gluten intolerances find that their allergies or autoimmune diseases are made better when eating a gluten-free diet, reducing their risk for heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses.

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