We all wish we could be as cool as Kourtney Kardashian who swears by a gluten free lifestyle, but alas it is not that simple. A lot of foods and household treats contain gluten which in tune can alter the cooking and dining experience of the individual giving up gluten. One might question the products that have a high percentage of gluten within them being;

  • rye.
  • barley.
  • bread.
  • pasta.
  • Cereals.
  • Wheat

The vast majority of said products are staples for meals, snacks and are often considered ‘healthy’ in most homes. So how do we give gluten free a good name? Simply read ahead.

Cut out the Junk

Surprisingly quite similar to traditional healthy eating diets, gluten-free eating is all about filling up your plate with naturally wholesome gluten-free foods. This includes vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, seeds, fish and lean meat. It seems easy enough until you’re in the drive thru line waiting for a burger with no bu, sauce and cheese. But did you know that there are gluten free hacks that allow you to enjoy the same carbohydrate indulgences as you one loved dearly? Rather than cull those treats from your life, swap it out for an option that won't leave you feeling bloated and up all night. We highly recommend Barilla’s gluten-free corn pasta’ which will make you feel like you’re enjoying a night out at an Italian restaurant. You can also find some pretty tasty pasta and pizza alternatives at your local health food store.
