If you know me you know I don’t watch reality shows, but it just so happens that I ended up watching an episode of Tia & Tamera and they were attempting to bake a gluten free cake for Tia’s baby boy’s first birthday party.
I thought the episode was cute but more so it got me to thinking about gluten free and what it is exactly.
So you know what I did right??? that’s right I went to the web in a search for INFORMATION, and here is what I found.
Gluten is the protein found in wheat, barley, rye and oats as well as in all foods made from these grains or flours. It is associated with increased risk of osteoporosis and cancer in people with celiac diseases, headaches and a plethora of other illness.
This is good information from the American Diabetes Association
I hear that It can be difficult to start eating gluten free but now that it’s such a widespread practice, with stores like Shoprite offering gluten free products I think you can do it easily. Check out some of these recipes from All Recipes as well. Be healthy my friends!
Until next time…
