When first diagnosed there is temptation to run to the gluten free section of the grocery store and start grabbing up everything you can find. Many will try to find the perfect replacement for their much loved bread, cookies, whatever.
Why not use this as a chance to do something different? Something better.
- Introduce yourself to a few new fruits and vegetables.
- Learn about gluten free grains you may never have heard of before.
- Pull out your cookbook and see how many recipes are naturally gluten free or easy to adapt.
When you cook from scratch you control what goes in your food. So instead of rushing to the store to replace processed food with gluten free processed food, stop and think. You have the opportunity to make this a change for the better and the healthier.
