Which gluten-free entrées help control symptoms? Look for recipes with fresh, lean meats, poultry, and fish—just be sure the food isn’t coated in or marinated with gluten-containing foods. You can also eat certain grains, including flax, millet, rice, and quinoa. (Learn to prepare perfect quinoa in 6 steps.) Flours without gluten are also fine, like bean, potato, corn, and rice.
Recipes with fruits and veggies are a smart addition to any low-calorie gluten-free foods diet.
