Articles and Posts about Living Gluten-Free
This quick and easy tomato avocado salad came together quickly for lunch recently. I had been out all morning and when I came home, I was hungry for something to eat…fast! I had an idea for something with a pile of salad greens with a fresh dressing, but happily an even better idea appeared.
I found both tomatoes and an avocado that were finally ripe…it’s so hard to wait for them sometimes.
From that point on, the rest of this lunch was easy.
A fresh summer salad recipe came together almost on its own.
The vegetables themselves provided most of the flavor, so that a little olive oil and vinegar made an ideal dressing. Lemon juice would also taste good instead of vinegar, and it would be completely grain-free and paleo.
Gluten-free crepes are a favorite here in my house, but I feel the “carb rush” after eating grains, so almond flour has become one of my favorite ingredients for making them.
My husband does not care for the flavor of rice flour in baked goods, so in the past I have often cooked 2 batches of crepes – gluten-y and gluten-free – which is more complicated, of course. I was happy to find that the flavor of almond flour satisfies is good for both of us.
The liquid in this recipe can be varied to suit not just gluten-free eating but also dairy-free or paleo diets.
As you can see from the pictures, for our brunch today we topped our crepes with butter, fruit and/or syrup. I used butter and strawberry fruit topping. Al enjoyed seedless raspberry topping with butter and syrup.
A great thing about making crepes is how they can be a “pantry recipe” – when it’s past time to go shopping but we’re hungry, I can still often make a quick meal of crepes that we will enjoy. If we’d had fresh fruit today, I would have used some – strawberries or blueberries would have been a nice touch. However, the bottled versions of fruit toppings and spreads work well for crepes, and they keep in the pantry indefinitely. I choose the ones that are fruit juice-sweetened only, and Al usually wants a more traditional (over-sweetened) type. I tease him about his sweet tooth, but he does eat less sugar than he used to.
… For that and many other reasons, people who are gluten intolerant often don’t realize how serious their condition really is…
… They think that because they only get a slight headache or have mild digestive upsets or have some other minor reaction after they eat or drink something with gluten in it that their disease isn’t all that serious.
But, almost nothing could be further from the truth!

I like an easy chicken dinner that cooks the vegetables right in the skillet with the chicken.
Since the chicken in this recipe is boneless it cooks very quickly, and the flavors of chicken, aromatic garlic and onion, carrots and spinach mingle in the pan to make a flavorful sauce that even my husband likes.
If you made the decision to begin living your life gluten-free, it may have been because you were diagnosed with celiac disease or a wheat allergy.
Or, maybe you did it, just because you want to experience the benefits that people, like yourself, have found they get from totally cutting wheat and other gluten producing grains out of their diets.
They’ve gone gluten free and are experiencing tremendous reported benefits because they have done just that!
It’s really not easy to do, but, magazines and news reports in the last year or two have been full of stories about the very positive benefits individuals like you and me have had because they made a quality-of-life decision to go gluten-free.
How you start your life living gluten-free depends on exactly why you’re doing that.
If your physician has diagnosed you with a disease that requires you to live gluten-free, make sure that your physician knows and agrees with what I am telling you to do here. There is absolutely no way that I can cover all reasons your physician may tell you to begin living gluten-free, or take into account your personal medical situation in this article.
In the event you have simply decided that you would like to live your life gluten-free, for whatever reason, I strongly recommend that if you suspect you have a disease which causes you to be gluten intolerant or gluten sensitive, you see a physician immediately for a proper evaluation and related diagnosis. There are two reasons for this recommendation…
Salsa has been a staple in my kitchen for a long time.
After all, I grew up in South Texas where salsa appears almost everywhere.
My favorite, though, has always been pico de gallo, also called salsa fresca or “fresh salsa.”
