Gluten free

Gluten-free eating and gluten free recipes have become increasingly popular in recent years, driven by a growing awareness of gluten-related sensitivities and conditions like celiac disease. Gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, can trigger adverse reactions in certain individuals, leading them to adopt a gluten-free diet.

This dietary shift involves avoiding traditional sources of gluten, such as bread, pasta, and baked goods. Instead, you can focus on naturally gluten-free foods like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and gluten-free grains like quinoa and rice. The rise of gluten-free alternatives has also played a pivotal role, offering substitutes for classic gluten-containing products.

While essential for those with gluten-related health concerns, some people choose gluten-free eating as a lifestyle choice, believing it promotes better digestion or weight management.

Choosing gluten free

Of course if you leave out the gluten in your food, it takes time to get used to what you can and cannot eat. It’s essential to read labels on packages carefully to make sure there are no trace elements of gluten. Which happens often if something is produced in a factory that otherwise also has gluten products.

It’s always wise to consult your doctor if you’re unsure if gluten free recipes are for you or if you suspect you might have a gluten intolerance.

Despite the fact I do not eat exclusively gluten free, I do like to experiment with making gluten free recipes.
