Eating Gluten Free Naturally; 20 gluten free food list

Are you eating gluten free?

If not, I’m sure you know someone who is. In fact, it’s become quite a trend! It is estimated that about 30% of the adult population is following a gluten-free lifestyle.

Although we don’t follow a gluten-free diet at our house, we do make it a point to eat gluten-free meals on Sunday. My mother-in-law eats with us on Sundays and she suffers from celiac disease—an autoimmune disorder that prevents her from eating gluten.

Why is gluten-free eating so popular?

Gluten-free eating has become very popular for a variety of reasons. Among them are:

  • Claims of weight loss and a boost in energy levels have received a lot of media attention.
  • Following a Paleo or Hunter-Gather diet in which all grains are eliminated.
  • Gluten Sensitivity. People who are gluten sensitive may experience gas and bloating after eating foods that contain gluten.
  • Celiac disease. For some people, like my mother-in-law, gluten can cause severe problems. About 1 in 100 people suffers from celiac disease – an autoimmune disorder that causes damage to the small intestine when gluten is ingested.

What is gluten anyway?

Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat, rye, barley and any foods made with these grains. Including, but not limited to:

  • White flour
