Did you know June marks the beginning of Strawberry Season? In honor of the delicious, red, juicy fruit I’m sharing one of my favorite mid-morning or late afternoon snacks, a gluten free smoothie full of superfoods and of course strawberries!
This piece isn’t just for glutards, it’s for anyone that has ever struggled with self control when it comes to food. Pizza is and always will be one of my greatest vices which is why I ate an entire gluten free frozen pizza for dinner last night. But, instead of beating myself up I just pretend Ryan Gosling is giving me a little pep-talk. Something like “Hey girl, I love the way that pizza grease shines off your chin.”
Last week I posted a rant about why a 30 day Gluten Free challenge is a complete waste of time, and I still stand by my convictions. That being said, I applaud anyone’s efforts to be a little more health conscious in how they eat and think about food. For that reason I am letting all you gluten mongers in on my best gluten free tricks of the trade. These 10 gluten free hacks are actually more like easy low or no carb alternatives that anyone can use.
Unfortunately there is a lot of misinformation on the internet when it comes to gluten free living and it’s a huge pet peeve of mine. Labels can be confusing and if you don’t know what you are looking for you might make some mistakes that can effect your health (if you have Celiac or a gluten intolerance). Lets make one thing clear, unless a product or food is specifically labeled gluten free then you can bet your precious little intestinal villi it probably isn’t, or you run the risk of contamination!
If you have no medical reason to avoid gluten and you still choose to, then there’s a good chance you are a masochist. While else would you choose to pass up on pizza, bagels, croissants, baguettes, cookies, pasta…? Ugh just thinking about all that yummy food breaks my heart.
