A gluten free diet is well known for two reasons.
One, it is generally a very nutritious diet and secondly many people, whether they have celiac disease, a gluten intolerance, or a number of other ailments, feel better on a gluten free diet.
Gluten is hard for our bodies to digest and if we have health problems, eating easy to digest foods helps our bodies focus on healing rather than digesting challenging foods. Two, eating gluten free can be very expensive. Many gluten free specialty items taste terrible, and it makes for some expensive experimenting.
One of the reasons I started a blog about gluten free living was to help other people avoid wasting their money (It’s $6-8 for a small loaf of gluten free bread!) and being disappointed with products. I have tried a lot of gluten free breads, cookies, and pastas and have finally found some wonderful products. Now I have yummy gluten free substitutes for all of the foods that I was used to eating before going gluten free. Soon I’ll be posting a list of all of my favorite products, so stay tuned to Gluten Free Bumble Bee if you’re interested!
Eating gluten free can be a daunting task at first. Hang in there – it really does get easier.
