I came across this article and thought that if you read yesterday's post, or any of my posts on sugars and inflammation, have Celiac Disease or know someone who does, then I think you will find this information interesting. It was no surprise to me since I have said over and over again that . . .
Following a traditional GF diet does not mean you are
following a healthy diet!
In fact, I often refer to many of the GF products out on the market as being the nutritional equivalent to a Twinkie. Just because a product is labeled WF or GF does not mean it is a good, healthy choice for you to eat.
It's a fact that most GF foods are filled with inflammation causing simple starches like tapioca starch, potato starch, white rice flour and corn starch, plus lots of dairy products and sugar . . . this is no way to get healthy.
For everyone of us who has a food allergy there are lots of digestive consequences, most of which compromise our ability to fully break down and absorb nutrients. This means that it's even more important for us to concentrate on nutrient dense foods. Over time these foods will become the medicine necessary to heal our bodies.
Remember what Hippocrates said so long ago . . .
"Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food."
I know it may sound like I'm just promoting my own cookbook, and I guess I am, but for a good reason. The recipes you will find in OMG! That's Allergy Free? are nutrient dense foods that were carefully designed to please your palate and promote healing in your body.
Thanks to Jordan Reasoner for doing so much great research and to the Celiac Handbook site for posting it so I could share it with you!
Happy, healthy eating!
Does that mean the gluten-free diet is the wrong prescription for celiac disease?
Only 8% of adult patients healed on a gluten-free diet…
65% of gluten-free Celiacs still have a raging fire in their gut
56% have poor vitamin status after 10 years gluten-free
The gluten-free diet doesn’t fix leaky gut
And untreated celiac disease will kill you fast
So should Celiacs eat a gluten-free diet?
