Gluten free diets are on the rise, and it’s not just a fad. Currently as many as 18 million American’s suffer with a gluten intolerance. This does not include the amount of people who have been diagnosed or are suffering from Celiacs Disease.
I myself wouldn’t be surprised if there are far more people than that out there who are struggling with an intolerance. Personally I believe I was struggling my entire life and only recently caught on to just how many of my problems were being caused by some of my most favorite foods (that contain gluten.)
Many of the issues I discovered were caused by gluten, I never would have suspected could be caused by a food allergy or intolerance.
If you are concerned you may have an issue, or you’re wondering why so many people are opting for gluten free, continue on. I have compiled a list of the main symptoms I experienced. How I was able to pinpoint gluten as the culprit and how you can begin to check yourself for gluten intolerance symptoms.
When people hear I’m gluten free they often think I am on a mission to lose weight or that I just got hooked into a new fad diet. So, before I start, let’s get one thing strait:I would never willingly give up bread. Ever. For anyone to think I would give those up for a fad diet or to lose weight are crazy! If you think you might be struggling with a gluten intolerance, check out what symptoms lead me to realize I had an intolerance. Well, besides having to give up bread, the major problem people often face when going gluten free is trying to afford it! It’s true there are more gluten free options available than there were years ago, but they generally come with a price bump. I have three major tips to share that will help you stay frugal while gluten free shopping.
Let’s face it, breakfast food is basically the best food in the entire world. The meal that could be eaten for every meal and no one would complain. At least I wouldn’t complain.
Well, I’m happy to say, this recipe is the quickest, easiest, cleanest waffle recipe around! If you are all about healthy, quick and simple recipes, these three ingredient waffles are for you. I pre-make them for my kids and then pop them in the fridge. Definitely beats most store bought quick-grab toaster waffles.
I don’t know about you, but I am always on the lookout for quick, easy to make snacks on the go. Personally, I am not a fan of most of the granola and protein bars you find on the shelves in the stores. Making them at home doesn’t have to be a big hassle and the best part is, you always know what’s going into them! I have got my favorite no bake, one bowl, gluten free protein bites that my kids and I always make! They are so easy and super healthy
