Is “Gluten Free” for you? Here are some good points to consider

I found this article in a recent Oxygen Magazine and I wanted to repost because I think the author touches on several good points to ponder about going “Gluten Free.”  “Gluten Free” products are growing in number in our grocery stores so variety is becoming more plentiful.  Keep in mind, gluten free food is often still heavily processed and often more caloric than other carbohydrates.  As Ciara Foy said in her recent facebook post, “even a gluten free donut is still a donut!”

Check out these tips when considering the gluten free route of eating.  Keep it clean!
