Gluten Free Is More Than A Fad To Some

Gluten free is more legitimate than people recognize.Over the last year or so, we’ve seen stories in the media suggesting that non-celiac gluten sensitivity (i.e. people that react to gluten but do not have celiac disease) is a myth: Maybe it’s because gluten-containing foods  like bread and pasta have been the main choice of foods for centuries. Then suddenly every where you look someone is gluten intolerant.   Perhaps people simply distrust anything they perceive to be “faddish”.

Observational studies have linked gluten intolerance with a shockingly diverse range of symptoms and conditions, including:

Irritable bowel syndrome
Dermatitis and other skin conditions
Multiple sclerosis
Peripheral neuropathy, myopathy, and other neurological disorders
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
Type 1 diabetes
Autism spectrum disorders
Ménière disease
Insulin resistance and inflammation

I have family members who have suffered with depression, anxiety, bipolar,IBS, intestinal issues, digestive problems and fibromyalgia.

Here is a gluten free meal:

Gluten free mac n cheese and turkey burger.

The turkey patty has no preservatives, is seasoned with gluten free seasoning.  Eating gluten free is an acquired taste, but most people will adjust if it means avoiding another bad mental and physical day. Removing gluten can be a choice for some in order to lose weight. However, people that are truly gluten sensitive is not in their heads.
