You are already in a good space. You are comfortably seated at your desk and moving along smoothly with your preferred internet service provider. Because this is about the best place you can gather up all your essential information to start putting together your uniquely gluten free diet as part of your future healthy eating meal plans for the weeks going forward. One thing you need to if you are still new to the facts of the matter is this.
You need to give yourselves a good introduction to gluten. Know exactly what it is will also help you to appreciate and understand better the symptoms many of you may experience due to the consumption of gluten, it does not matter how much or how little of it you may consume. You also need to understand your current food list a lot better, taking careful note of its ingredients. For instance, if you are particularly fond of bread and/or related products, you need to know that wheat and rye are two major sources of gluten.
Also, if you are a beer drinker, not necessarily in excess, you need to know that beer continues to be traditionally brewed with heavy volumes of malt, barley and hops, all of which contain gluten. And already, you should be able to identify with the after effects of your consumption. No one can deny that after just two beers their stomachs are already experiencing that bloated feeling. And after a particularly heavy bout of drinking, the next morning is characterized by a hangover.
A nasty headache is just one of the many symptoms of those who are particularly sensitive or intolerant to gluten. Gluten’s function is not to serve the body in any healthy way. Its main function is to nourish the embryos of the plants from which it is derived. Here is an interesting fact. Quinoa, entirely gluten free, is a seed and not a grain, and is one of the favored sources of nature being used to produce processed foodstuffs that are gluten free.
