“The point is that a healthy gluten-free diet includes a nutrient dense, anti-inflammatory dose of healthy fats and proteins, organic produce and grain-free flour alternatives such as almond flour, coconut flour and hazelnut flour. When going gluten free is done wrong, it’s the overpriced food version of diet soda; just as unhealthy as the original, if not more.” Check out “Why Going Gluten Free Can be Unhealthy”.
A great lesson for everyone to remember! Replacements are just that! Often “fake” foods are just as unhealthy, or sometimes worse, than the foods they replace (if you don’t believe me, read this graphic Craig’s List post on Olean in Fat Free Pringles).
If you’re gluten-free, look for whole-grain foods. Build well-rounded nutrition. Avoid sweets that are often loaded with extra fats to make them taste more like their gluten counterparts.
