I’ve been happily gluten-free for almost a year now. It is something that has just become a part of my everyday life. I don’t miss eating gluten based foods, I don’t crave them and I definitely do not miss the painful side effects or the extra 10lbs I would carry around because of them.
Going gluten-free is by far, one of the biggest changes you can make to your diet. It really does remove so many foods that you so easily grab for and never think about - bread, cereal, pasta, muffins, cookies, chips, crackers… oh the list goes on! If you’re thinking about going gluten-free, don’t let this list scare you. I still eat bread, cereal, pasta, muffins, cookies, chips and crackers… they are just gluten-free!
Here are some of my ‘can’t live without’ gluten-free options.
1. Van’s Gluten-Free Waffles: On a Saturday morning, who doesn’t love waking up late and having some waffles with fresh fruit and syrup! I absolutely love these waffles – my favorite is blueberry but my boyfriend prefers their cinnamon flavour. You can’t go wrong with these and I promise that you’ll never know that they are gluten-free!
Every day, there are new and amazingly tasty gluten-free options coming out. I’m not saying that going gluten-free is easy, but at least you have a lot of good foods to choose from and there really isn’t a whole lot that you can’t eat – you just have to find the gluten-free option.
