There are many questions out there about food being or not gluten-free.
Is paella gluten-free? Is sushi gluten-free? Is ice cream gluten-free? Are smoothies gluten-free?
OMG, it can be very frustrating sometimes having so many questions that have no answers, especially when it comes to food.
For celiacs, eating can become a non-enjoyable act just for the simple fact of not knowing if food is or not safe for them to eat.
Wondering at the supermarket if they can eat or not whatever food product they are about to buy, can be sometimes overwhelming because you just want to buy it, leave, cook, and have a delicious meal.
Celiacs may want to look for delicious meal recipes to not get tired of eating the same, but not being well-informed about which brands are the safest for them can be an obstacle when starting a gluten-free lifestyle.
Designing a delicious meal plan for my husband has been part of our gluten-free living. My husband is celiac and I decided (as part of my contribution to his health) to stick to the same gluten-free diet that he follows.
Certainly, excluding gluten from my diet was hard at first, but once I was on board, I started enjoying it.
Having tasty and different meals every day has motivated us both to keep eating healthy free from gluten plates.
Matt and I eat our three meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). For a while, we had a hard time looking for gluten-free snacks to incorporate, but recently we discovered a bunch of safe options to eat.
Don’t go nuts but yes, celiacs can eat nuts!
At first, we were not sure if nuts were safe for celiacs, we didn’t know if they contained gluten, and we knew too little about good nuts brands. But of course, we did what I have suggested to you before: research and read.
We found out that nuts besides being gluten-free, they are a delicious option to include in our diets.
Not all nuts are gluten-free. Plain and unprocessed peanuts and nuts are. They stop being safe for celiacs when they are processed and packaged in manufacturers where they also process gluten-containing products.
