Fab Gluten Free
by Alison Morgan
Gluten is certainly a buzzword out there at the moment.
If you’ve experienced feeling bloated or had stomach pains, it could be from something you’ve eaten.
While a small percentage of the population are actually gluten intolerant, it seems this is increasing and far more people are eating gluten free alternatives.
There are also many who are choosing to vary their diets and make gluten free choices to avoid that bloated feeling.
For those unaware, gluten is the protein found in wheat, barley and other grains.
Below is a list of gluten free products
All fruit, vegetables, herbs & spices
Fresh meat / seafood
Gluten free flour mixes
Gluten free breadcrumbs
Corn breakfast cereals
Rice (any kind – although I prefer brown)
Many rice crackers (check the labels)
Virgin Coconut Oil
In the supermarket there’s quite a range of gluten free products readily available.
These include: Biscuits, Bread, Flour Mixes (flours made from chickpeas, coconut, tapioca, nuts, seeds / lentils) & Cakes.
Some gluten free ideas
Muesli Topper: Toss together toasted nuts and seeds, vanilla, 1 TB virgin coconut oil, and spices or seasonings, and bake.
Pastry Idea: You can make the dish without the crust and use mashed cauliflower as a substitute. Otherwise use gluten-free flour.
Lunch & Snack Ideas: salads, rice cakes with salmon / tuna and salad, cinnamon nuts, rice with nori & sesame seeds, dates with cream cheese & walnuts, risotto with seasonal vegetables & seafood, popcorn….
