A Gluten Free Life

When I had been advised by a Naturopathic practitioner to cut Gluten out of my diet I was not surprised.
I’d long suspected it that it may be the source of many of my health complaints.

Now that I’ve been mostly gluten free for over a year I can definitely feel the difference. Less pain, swelling, I can focus a bit better and have more energy.  I always “pay the price” when I allow myself to indulge in anything containing gluten.

After the advise, I began consuming brown rice, quinoa and potatoes as a bread/pasta alternative.  It can get a bit boring especially at times when the family is enjoying pizza or pastries.  I’ve tried quite a few recipes and products to mix it up a bit.

I’m not a big pasta person but try to have rice pasta on hand for the rare occasion I have a craving.  I also keep rice flour on hand (oat flour is great too if it does not bother you).

I recently found pre-made Gluten Free pizza crust (frozen food section Henry’s Market) and decided to give it a try.  I made myself and absolutely delicious pizza with mozzarella, feta, spinach, onions, tomato and olive oil. I’d suggest looking for GF pizza dough recipes online too.

 

I tried rice lasagna noodles and made a gluten free lasagna that the whole family was able to enjoy.

My favorite GF recipe was one I found online, Crepes!
You can choose to add spices to your crepes depending on whether you’d like savory or desert crepes.
I’ve made them more then once and like that I can make a batch and keep them in the refrigerator for lunches and snacks.  Filled with plain yogurt, agave nectar, blueberries and sprinkled with cinnamon is my favorite:
