What is Celiac Disease?
When someone cannot digest a certain protein that comes from gluten, the body reacts with bowel distress and other symptoms. Many people with celiac disease have not been diagnosed, but you donít have to have celiac disease to benefit from a gluten-free diet. Even children and adults with ADD, ADHD, Autism, and other emotional or mind-related illnesses benefit!
Why Should More People Be Gluten-Free?
Gluten affects nearly every ëbodyí in some way. From intestinal disorders to emotional sensitivity to low energy, youíll find people who swear that a gluten-free diet has been the answer for them. Weíre all unique, so your doctor can tell you whatís right for you.
Which grains have gluten?
Pretty much all of them unless the package says ìGluten-Freeî. For example, oatmeal now has gluten in it unless itís the gluten-free version. Even millet, which used to be safe, now has been cross-contaminated or cross-pollinated with gluten-filled grains. The safest grains are not really grans, but close: Quinoa and Amaranth.
What is the Solution?
My cookbooks! They have only Quinoa or Amaranth, veggies, proteins, fruits, nuts and seeds, healthy oils and seasonings, and few milk products (goat milk or coconut milk mostly recommended) in recipes, just rich, delicious, satisfying food for all needs.
