There are many reasons that people decide to eat gluten-free. It has become known as the “anti-inflammatory diet." There are many more options on the market each day for gluten-free eaters, and the world of foods is full of delicious alternatives. 

What is Gluten?

Gluten is typically found in wheat, barley, and rye, so avoid those options, but other grains should be fine, including corn, quinoa, and rice. You should make sure your grains, especially your oats are gluten-free to be 100% sure. All of Straw Propeller's oatmeal has certified gluten-free oats, and labels it on the cup for you.

Good Vibes

Typical signs include being more energized and less lethargic after starting this diet. Not to mention the lack of processed grains and fats, losing weight is not an uncommon thing, although that varies on your overall habits. Many switch for multiple different reasons, but you will definitely want to keep it up once you start noticing these benefits.

Going gluten for any reason will probably require a good bit of prepping and motivation on your part. As most, you will have a few hiccups along the way, but in the end, the positive effects on your body are likely to outweigh any negative issues from the beginning. With a little support and meal ideas, your gluten-free eating habits will be in place in no time!
