Monday, July 30, 2018

If you have had to go gluten-free for your health or have chosen to go gluten-free for a different reason, such as to have more energy or lose weight, you may be finding the loss of breads, pastas and pizza doughs to be quite difficult. Thankfully, there are many gluten-free products that taste delightful these days as many companies get on board with gluten-free projects. Plus, you can also cook healthful and flavorful gluten-free meals yourself without a lot of stress. These tips can help you plan many meals that will be good for you and even for individuals who have not gone gluten-free.

Substitute a Different Starch

While there is certainly something to be said for a hot, crusty piece of bread made from white flour, you do not have to swear off bread altogether. Flours made with rice or brown rice, legumes, cassava, tapioca, potato or corn are all safe for you and can be found in numerous baking blends and pastas these days. You may also want to try oats, buckwheat and quinoa to satisfy your need for a starchy texture.

Use the Right Spices

Adding texture and flavor to your dishes is what will take them from boring to delicious. Consider adding spices that are certified to be safe for your new diet. Some delicious gluten free spices and spice blends to keep on hand include minced onion, Italian seasoning, a garlic herb blend and a curry mix.
Going gluten-free does not mean that you have to give up on flavor and texture. With the wide array of flours and pastas made from safe gluten-free alternatives these days as well as the numerous gluten-free cereals, baking blends, cookies and cake mixes that you can find on the shelves of nearly any grocery store today, you have enough options to start choosing delicious meals and desserts for yourself. In fact, they may just be so good that your family will not even know that they have given up gluten alongside you.
