Why are People Avoiding Gluten?

Have you ever tried not eating gluten for just two weeks? When I tried it, I felt a lot better both physically and emotionally. I felt much more balanced and I had more energy. It took awhile to look back and see the emotional part.

My emotions improved even more by cutting out all grains and sugars of all kinds, except for fruit, and very little of that for me. Sound rough? It can be daunting to think about, but the actuality is food your body will love and crave over time.

For example, want spaghetti? No problem, just cut zucchini into thin slices and top with your favorite sauce. Add whatever other fun things you like, such as mushrooms, olives and grated cheese of choice. If you are a meat-eater, add that too. If vegan, add some sprouted nuts and seeds for protein and your favorite vegan cheese or nutritional yeast. For great recipes, see our home page for more about Debbie’s cookbooks.
