Have you been told you should stop eating gluten free? Here's why I think you should stop eating gluten free!
Here’s why you should stop eating gluten free now!
I am not saying you should stop eating gluten free if you have Celiac or Gluten sensitivities. I am saying you should limit or stop eating packaged gluten free foods. Are you still having belly issues after being diagnosed with Celiac? Are you not feeling better with a traditional gluten free diet? This may be why you should stop eating gluten free!
Sometimes, people lean on packaged foods when they are new at learning how to eat gluten free. It’s appealing and makes choosing food options easy when you aren’t sure about meal prepping or what items are safe for you to eat.
However, many prepackaged foods contain chemicals and additives that do not aid in gut healing and overall wellbeing. If you are still feeling yucky, try going back to the basics for a while…meat (not processed), Veggies, and fruit! This will give your body a chance to heal and rebound.
If I Don’t Eat Food From A Package What Do I Eat? I am not a Dr. so always consult them before you change anything regarding your diet, however, I would recommend eating the basics.
What are the basics? Look for guidance from a Whole 30/Paleo/Keto lifestyle!
All the fruits and vegetables are all gluten free and good for your body! Meat that is not processed is all gluten free! I buy high quality meat that is grass-fed and not grown with hormones. It is more expensive, however, I feel better eating it and knowing where it comes from!
I generally order my meat either from Butcher Box or US Wellness Meat. I go back and forth between the two depending on what I want to order. I love both companies and their quality of products. Currently, Butcher Box is on a waitlist due to its popularity during COVID but hopefully, they will welcome new customers soon.
If you don’t want to order your meat online, I recommend making friends with a local farmer who grows their animals using good food and no hormones. It’s always good to have more friends.
What About PIZZA?What about pizza? What about sandwiches? What about cereal? What about bread and buns?
Why you should stop eating gluten free packaged foods including the ones above is because of the chemicals they contain. I am suggesting you learn to make pizza at home using paleo ingredients.. WHAT? Yup, it won’t taste exactly like gluten pizza but it will be real ingredients that will fuel your body. You can do it! The same goes for the other items you want to eat.
It is more time-consuming but it is worth it. It’s a new adventure and you can learn new things! You’ve got this!
Here Are Some Of My Favorite Recipes That Are Whole 30/Paleo:
Pecan Crusted Tuna with Mango Salsa
Caribbean Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Paleo Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I Hope This Has Inspired You on Why You Should Stop Eating Gluten FreeAnother reason I limit eating gluten free packaged food is that it isn’t always gluten free. The gluten free label has different meanings depending on which certification it is from or if it’s certified at all.
I generally trust the certified gluten free companies more than ones that aren’t. Regardless of certification I always Nima test the food. Having Celiac disease has definitely made me more of a skeptic and for good reason. My body is my responsibility and feeding it gluten is not taking care of it. I had to become a detective about food.
I know that your gluten free journey is indeed that, a journey. I have been on this journey for over 12 years! I started out excited that I could eat pizza and donuts that were gluten free in the freezer section. Over the years, I have realized that yes I can eat them but they don’t make my body feel good.
I am not saying that I never eat gluten free food from a package. I do, occasionally. And when I do I look for companies that use real ingredients and that are organic and don’t contain known chemicals and additives that harm your belly. As a celiac my belly needs all the help it can get! lol.
I hope you are doing great and enjoying the journey!

Do you like coffee as much as I do? If you like coffee you should totally try this fun dalgona coffee trend!
What is Dalgona Coffee anyway?
Dalgona coffee is a drink that was invented in Korea according to Wikipedia.
It is made by whisking equal parts instant coffee (I used freeze dried), sugar and hot water until it is thick. Then you scoop it on top of your favorite milk or milk alternative.
What started this whipped coffee trend?Honestly, it appears that people were trying to make coffee shop fancy coffee at home during the Covid stay at home time. People on social media dubbed it the quarantine coffee.
How Do You Make This Dalgona Coffee:
It is really easy to make and you can add your own variations to customize it to your fancy.
You need instant coffee, sugar or sugar alternative, milk or milk alternative, and hot water. A whisk will come in handy too I used an electric whisk that came with my emersion blender. And of course, a glass to whip it in.
That’s it! It’s super easy!
First step is to add the coffee, sugar and water to a cup. I found that you get frothy thick coffee faster in a glass that has narrow sides vs a bowl.
Now you get to whip…whip…whip it good!
You can stop whipping when you have reached the desired thickness.
What Would Make This More Delicious?
I am not a huge fan of sugary drinks, so I might not have the same fancy additions as you if you like sugary drinks.
I used organic raw sugar when I filmed the video, however, I have also made it with Monk fruit sweetener, Coconut sugar or Erythritol and it works just fine.
Try adding cinnamon, cacao powder, or dust some Flavor God pumpkin spice over the top.
There are so many options! Use your imagination!
