02 Nov What Foods are Gluten Free?
So you’re thinking about going gluten-free, be it by totally cutting it out, or just cutting it down.
In today’s modern world there are so many options for the gluten-free dieters, from free-from produce to the naturally gluten-free, so what should you be eating?
As with any diet, it’s very important to ensure that your diet remains balanced!
Since a lot of glutinous products are carbohydrates, it is important that the foods you will be eating still provide you with the energy and sustenance of those foods. Some naturally gluten-free, carbohydrate heavy alternative foods that you could go for include:
– Beans, lentils, hummus and bean-based dips.
– Brown rice, millet, amaranth, quinoa, and buckwheat (and breads, pastas and crackers made from these grains)
– Sweet potatoes, winter squash and corn
By swapping your glutinous foods with these alternatives, your body will be taking in a lot more nutrients, making for a much healthier body. A diet which is based upon these complex carbohydrates, instead of empty carbohydrates such as pasta and pastries, will both help to build up a stronger immune system, but also stabilise bloody sugar levels.
