Gluten-Free Food Guide

This post may include affiliate links.

Gluten is a protein that naturally occurs in wheat, barley, and rye. It’s present in so many of our foods, from bread to muffins to cookies and even pizza dough. But many people choose to remove gluten from their diets. People with Celiac disease suffer from an autoimmune disorder that causes the body to attack its own cells when gluten is present. These people must stay away from gluten at all costs. Other people are less tolerant to gluten than others, and experience bloating, digestive issues, and fatigue when they eat gluten-rich foods, so they choose to eliminate those foods from their diets. And still more people, while not afflicted by gluten, find that their diet looks healthier and they have better luck with weight loss when they choose gluten-free foods.

Going gluten-free? It may seem daunting at first, when you think about all of the food items that contain gluten and are, therefore, off-limits. But when you adjust your focus a bit and think of the rich variety of foods that you can eat that are gluten-free, you may open up a door to healthy eating that you didn’t realize was there!

Our chart provides a handy guide to gluten-free foods, allowing you to peruse your grocery store aisles efficiently, making choices that are gluten-free, delicious, and great for you! From protein-rich meat, poultry, legumes, and seeds, to literally any veggie or fruit, your options are wide, indeed! And you don’t have to stay away from all grain-like foods. Quinoa is a great substitute for grains that is protein- and nutrient-rich, and gluten-free. Your next shopping trip will end with a cart full of healthy, scrumptious gluten-free options!

    Is oatmeal gluten free?

    • Gale Compton  August 26, 2017

      Tina, Yes, but it can contain gluten if processed in a facility that uses gluten for other products. To make sure it should state, Gluten-Free.

    I am having such a hard time staying gluten free! The products can be so expensive!!!

      Maria, Eliminate wheat products and read ingredient labels. If you make most of your meals at home, it becomes a lot more doable.
