Finding out that you have a gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease can be a real bummer to say the least. It can feel like the end of the world. Strolling the grocery isle or glancing at a restaurant menu is enough to make you burst into tears and scream, “My life is over!” Maybe you haven’t determined an intolerance or Celiac and are beginning an elimination diet to see if your symptoms improve. Either way, knowing what to do as far as a gluten free diet for beginners doesn’t have to be as stressful as you may think.
Thankfully the supermarkets and restaurants are hopping on board with more and more amazing gluten free products. I will say, if you are suffering with some serious tummy troubles or other gluten induced symptoms, supplementing your diet with highly processed gluten free foods is not the best way to go. However, I fully get that it is stressful and you have to start somewhere. The idea of having to give up some of your favorite foods is enough to make a person want to bail before even starting. I touched on this a little with my post Gluten Free Shopping List but today I am going to help you get really start sifting through all the products on the market and start figuring out the cleanest way to start your new diet.
