Are you setting a goal to make your diet as gluten-free as possible? If yes, Hearn Kirkwood is here to help you kick off your gluten-free diet with a few tips on how to make grocery shopping for gluten-free meals a breeze!
No, you don’t have to read every label on every product in the grocery store to find gluten-free food. It is time consuming and stressful.
Most food products don’t provide much nutritional value but make it easy for us to pile up on calories. Your body needs solid nutrients from real food. Healthy foods reduce inflammation, heal and strengthen the body.
To easily transition to a gluten free diet, buy fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and seafood that are naturally gluten free.
Gluten in not in every food product but it is often found in processed foods. Some products that contain gluten are wheat, barley, rye, and oats.
A great way to get in the swing of a gluten free diet is to eat single ingredient foods. Single ingredient foods include free vegetables like asparagus, onions, and potatoes.
Next, test out a gluten free menu for one week. Eat organic fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, wild caught seafood, nuts, beans, coconut oil, and sea salt.
Last but not least, make your gluten free shopping easy by sticking to the outer aisles of the grocery store. At the outer aisles you will discover all the natural gluten-free food. Read Hearn Kirkwood’s article How To Pick The Freshest Fish to get started on your gluten free diet today.
