If you are one of those people who are diagnosed with celiac disease and or someone who cannot consume food which has gluten content then it is important that you take note of the following tips when it comes to designing a gluten-free diet:

  • Consult Your Physician: The first thing that you have to do before you enjoy some tasty food for a gluten free diet is to consult with a physician on what foods you should avoid, and what foods you should eat. Furthermore, you have to also ask if some of the medications you’re taking contains protein and find out if some of the foods that you are consuming hav gluten in them.
  • Be Careful Of Small Gluten Content: Refrain from using materials which may have gluten residue. This means that even if you eat regular bread but decide to use a toaster that was used to toast a gluten-filled meal prior, then the bread will likely get some gluten residue which is bad for people who are suffering from celiac disease.
  • Refrain From Eating Wheat: It can be disheartening to not be able to eat the foods that you usually enjoy eating wheat-based meals however, by disciplining yourself into not eating them, you can keep yourself healthy. At the same time, there are also alternative foods which you can eat such as brown rice, corn and or quinoa.
  • Read labels: It is also important that you read labels of the food that you are buying and make sure that they are “gluten free”. Some of the foods that you should refrain from eating are bouillon and broth cubes, rice mixes and condiments such as soy sauce or ketchup.

Though abstaining from gluten-filled meals can be challenging, it is the best way to keep yourself health especially if you are someone who is suffering from celiac disease.
