Gluten-Free Diet Recipes

What You'll Eat

A diet full of naturally gluten-free foods such as fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, poultry, fish and eggs. You’ll want to tread carefully when it comes to processed foods, which often contain wheat or its derivatives, and even gluten-free convenience foods, which often make up for gluten with extra fat and calories, can be unhealthy choices. Beware of the many products that contain gluten, such as fillers used to bind meat or medications. (It’s even in Play-Doh!). You can still enjoy some of your favorite recipes with substitutions such as amaranth, arrowroot, buckwheat, quinoa, millet, teff and almond flour. And now that the gluten-free diet has become so popular, you can often find gluten-free items and even menus when dining out. When it comes to alcohol, swap beer and malt beverages for wine or a cocktail with vodka, gin or rum.
