The challenging thing about trying go on a gluten free diet, is wheat and gluten is put in so many different foods as a filler and a thickener. Wheat is not expensive to produce and we eat wheat and gluten from morning to night without even realizing it.
- Perhaps you start your day with cereal that has wheat in it. (This is not good for a gluten free diet)
- Then you have a sandwich using wheat bread with gluten in it.
- Perhaps you have a cookie for dessert that is made with wheat flour. (Not allowed on a gluten free diet)
- For dinner you might have pizza, (gluten in the crust) and a salad with wheat croutons in it. Many salad dressings even have gluten in them.
All of these items have wheat in them and/or gluten! Yickes. It is no wonder why people are having a reaction to it. Perhaps we just eat TOO gluten and too much wheat!
Stay tuned. I will have many posts to come to explore a gluten free diet and explain the benefit of eating gluten free baked treats even if your doctor has not yet said that you should go on a gluten free diet.
Think about all the times that you eat wheat in the day, it is CONSTANT!
