Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
A Gluten-free diet is simply one that eliminates gluten, which is a protein found in many common grains like: wheat, barley, rye and possibly oats! Oats may be okay, but can be processed on equipment that also processes wheat! It's a diet used to treat those people diagnosed with Celiac disease, which is a common disease that affects around 1 out of every 150 people! They can't tolerate gluten at all!
The month of November is Gluten Free Diet Awareness Month.
Find out more about a Gluten Free Diet from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits Website!
