Gluten free snacks aren’t that easy to find. There are just too many cookies and bars with all sorts of ingredients in the snack aisle.
I say - forget the snack aisle! Going gluten free means you have to be more creative but you can do it.
Many people have started following a gluten-free diet because they find that they can't tolerate gluten or are allergic to it.
In case you didn't know, gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, kamut, and spelt. Gluten is also a food additive and can be hidden under the names "maltodextrine" and "dextrine".
Why are so many people choosing gluten free? I think that people feel better when they don't eat the many processed foods that use gluten.
Think about it. Start your day without toast or a donut, then don't eat a sandwich for lunch, and then skip the pizza for dinner. So, what did you eat?
You probably made much better choices by going gluten free. Maybe you ate a salad at lunch, drank a berry smoothie (with no added sugar) for breakfast, and made a delicious light dinner of fish, brown rice, and roasted asparagus? I can hope!
