Gluten Free

Going Gluten Free? Tips to Help you Along the Way

Food allergies make creating special diets a fact of life. For a person who gets sick from eating wheat, a gluten-free diet is the only path to better health.

Eliminating gluten from your diet starts with making gluten-free meals at home. Investing in a recipe book with gluten-free recipes can give you tons of options for meals and desserts. You can also buy regular recipe books and substitute with gluten-free ingredients. A scroll cookbook holder or scroll cookbook stand can offer a convenient place to store and use those new recipes.

Taking gluten out of your diet also means eliminating lots of carbohydrates. Your body might not react well to a loss of carbs at first. Cravings for sugary snacks will increase as your body tries to fill the void. You can ward off these cravings by keeping a supply of fresh fruit and vegetables on hand. Place a few apples and bananas in a iron banana tree with a basket. Then set the fruit on the kitchen counter as a visual reminder to combat cravings with healthy snacks.
