5 Tasty Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes
There are many reasons you may be looking for gluten-free dinner recipes. Many Americans try to avoid gluten—a protein found in grains such as wheat, rye, and barley—for various reasons.
About one in 141 Americans have a digestive disorder known as celiac disease that is more than just being sensitive to gluten. Eighteen million Americans have other sensitivities to gluten that should not be confused with celiac disease. Although a sensitivity can be very uncomfortable when eating the wrong foods, ingesting gluten can actually cause damage to the small intestine for someone who suffers from celiac disease.
Whatever your reason for staying away from gluten, you may find it difficult in the beginning to stick to a gluten-free plan because gluten is simply found in so many foods, from bread and pasta to cakes and cookies. In fact, it’s even an ingredient in some vitamins and toiletries!
