Gluten is a mixture of proteins that’s primarily found in wheat. The most serious form of gluten intolerance is Celiac disease, an autoimmune disease. It is possible, however, to have a gluten intolerance without having Celiac disease. Many people find that eating wheat causes headaches, indigestion, eczema, or low energy levels. Some people also go gluten-free to help them lose weight. A gluten-free diet isn’t necessary for everyone (whole grains are healthy!), but if you’ve been feeling sluggish or have chronic headaches or digestive issues, give it a shot and see if it makes a difference. Here are 15 delicious gluten-free dinners to get you started on your gluten-free journey.
