"To Be or Not To Be" Gluten Free?

Moira Riccio

There's so much to keep track of these days with recommended nutritional guidelines...Should you watch your carbs, fats, sugars or gluten?   Everything in moderation, of course but here are a few ideas for you with your nutrition:

Gluten is found in wheat, barley, flour and (some) oats and tends to bind up the system, increase inflammation and enhance fatigue.   Bottom line, do what's right for you, but you may want to eat fewer cereals, breads and pastas for a week and see how you feel!  Of course you need carbs to live so eat more vegetables, fruits or whole grain rice, and quinoa.  There are truly so many good options out there….  For more information, you can read The South Beach Diet's Gluten Solution book by Arthur Agaston.

I will always remember my trip to Plimoth Plantation: the native Americans ate corn, beans, squash, fish and other fruits and vegetables.  It's the Pilgrim settlers who brought over the flour!  Make a mental note and plan out your holiday dinner accordingly!

Happy Holidays!
Moira


P.S.: Dark chocolate covered peanut butter balls can be gluten free;)
