Yes, it is important to know what foods contain gluten, otherwise you will poison yourself. The problem is that most people focus on everything they can’t eat at first, leading to depression. In many cases, eating gluten also leads to depression.
What to do?
The answer is actually quite simple, and easier than it ever was before: focus on what you can eat. It’s that simple.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Fresh Vegetables. You can’t go wrong with this one! They are healthy for everyone and always gluten-free.
Fresh Meat. Fresh meat is always gluten-free, unless of course, you contaminate it yourself when you bring it home and prepare it. But of course you’re not going to do that, so this is a safe choice. If you are vegetarian, read on, I’ve got some ideas for you too.
Fresh Fish. Like fresh meat, fresh fish is safe and a fantastic source of protein. It is also a source of extremely healthy oils.
Legumes. Legumes offer a wide variety of gluten-free vegetarian protein. Legumes include peas, beans and lentils. Peanuts (which are not nuts) are an example of a legume.
Gluten-free Cereals. While certain cereals are your worst enemy, there are still lots of other gluten-free cereals to choose from. This includes maize, rice, teff and a number of others. Just avoid the big four (wheat, rye, barley and oats and the rest are fine.
This is not a complete list, but it is plenty to get you started.
