What exactly is a gluten free lifestyle? Well, it’s not just about avoiding breads and pastas, or giving up all of your favourite foods.
Let’s explore what gluten free living means and how it can change your life for the better!
‘What the heck is gluten???’
Gluten is a protein commonly found in breads, pastas and baked goods. There are many people that suffer from gluten intolerance which makes it difficult to eat these types of foods.
Gluten can cause serious health problems for those with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance. A tell-tale sign of a gluten sensitivity is an upset tummy. This is due to the fact that bodies that have a gluten intolerance, don’t have adequate enzymes to break down this hard-to-digest form of protein. This then has a negative effect on their stomach acid, resulting in discomfort and other not very pleasant side effects.
It’s often used as an additive to thicken food products, such as ice cream or chocolate bars. In fact, it can be found in different types of foods from sweets to cereal! People who have a gluten intolerance can have difficulties eating these kinds of foods, this is because their digestive system cannot process the substance properly which causes pain, bloating and discomfort throughout the body.
A Gluten Free Diet:
For those who don’t know, gluten is found in many types of foods such as breads, pastas, cookies and cakes. It is also found in many types of beer too which makes it extremely hard for some people to avoid completely. Even though gluten can be difficult to eliminate from your diet entirely, there are definitely ways that you can minimize the amount you have while still enjoying delicious foods!
Gluten free diets have been popularised by celebrities and gluten-free communities. However, less than one percent of the population actually has a medical need for this diet. For those that do suffer from coeliac disease or other intolerances to wheat products, following a gluten free lifestyle is vital to their physical well being.
A gluten free lifestyle is a very popular trend that has been around for a while now. People from all walks of life have discovered the benefits of going gluten-free and are living much healthier lives as a result.
Though, it may sound restrictive, people enjoy this way of life as it combats inflammatory issues, eases digestion and can even boost your energy levels. For coeliac sufferers especially, it is a super safe way to shake those cobwebs away!
Gluten Free Doesn’t Have To Mean Fun Free!
There aren’t any reasons for someone with a gluten intolerance to feel like they can’t enjoy chocolate anymore! There are plenty of delicious options out there and it’s important you don’t skip dessert just because your body cannot process certain ingredients. You want to be able to live a normal life and indulging in some chocolate every now and then shouldn’t ruin that.
The gluten free lifestyle is more than just giving up all of your favourite foods! It’s an opportunity for you to experience new flavors that are made with real food ingredients instead of artificial additives or preservatives. For those who eat dairy-free as well, we have a variety of dairy and gluten free products!
This lifestyle change can be difficult at first, but it’s definitely worth trying. You will notice a difference in the way you feel when your body is not loaded down by foods that are hard for you to digest. Don’t give up – if one type of food doesn’t work for you, experiment with another.
