Two Reasons why you should think about eating gluten free… They may not be the reasons you are thinking.
- Gluten is found hidden in many of your favorite packaged foods. Before you reach for that box of cookies or bag of chips be sure to carefully scrutinize the list for gluten containing ingredients. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of gluten-free unhealthy snacks, but thinking before you eat the packaged foods may help you think twice about eating them.
- Foods that are naturally gluten-free are all the Kansas City Dietitian’s favorites: lean proteins, fruits and veggies. These foods along with some unrefined grains such as Quinoa can help you easily manage your weight and stay optimally healthy.
Follow the Kansas City Dietitians’ gluten-free plan to help you feel your best. Incorporate one of these foods at each meal. 1. Lean proteins (beans, chicken, eggs, Greek yogurt) 2. Fruits 3. Vegetables 4. Unrefined grains or starches (quinoa, sweet potatoes, peas)
