Going gluten free can seem intimidating, but I’m here to ensure it’s not. Gluten free is simply a diet or lifestyle that avoids foods containing gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Going gluten free may help with digestive health, reduce bloating, improve concentration, and even help with weight loss. What’s great about going gluten free is that so many foods are naturally gluten free, such as fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, dairy, nuts and seeds. There are also plenty of gluten free foods you can buy at the grocery store that are just as delicious, like cereal, breads, wraps and even pizza. With a little bit of researching and some simple substitutions, you’ll have a gluten free diet in no time.
