12 of The Best Gluten-Free Foods

Since going gluten-free, we have lost weight and haven’t felt so down. I don’t really know how to describe it, but we don’t feel so consumed. We don’t eat as much because when you give your body what it needs, you feel better. Like, you eat sugar, you are going to want more. I haven’t had real unnatural sugar or candy of any kind in quite some time. We notice the difference immensely. We went out of town for a conference a few weeks ago, and let’s just say we couldn’t even keep their food down because our bodies have adjusted SO MUCH to eating healthily. It is amazing how much a diet can change you mentally, physically, and emotionally. Catch up on why we hopped on this journey.

It’s important to always look at the ingredients. In general, when determining whether a food product is made using gluten-containing ingredients, you are looking for six keywords: wheat, barley, rye, oats, malt, and brewer’s yeast.

I want you also to note that you can still eat bread, tortillas, etc. You merely need to make sure you are eating the right types.

Here are 12 of the best gluten-free foods:

Be careful what you look for in products. If you see any of these, the goods contain gluten:

  1. Triticum vulgare (wheat)
  2. Triticale (a cross between wheat and rye)
  3. Hordeum vulgare (barley)
  4. Secale cereale (rye)
  5. Triticum spelta (spelt, a form of wheat)

We decided to go gluten-free to be healthier, and to try out some ideas behind autism. We are sharing our journey as time goes on, and this is still fairly new to us. Gluten-free so far has treated us well.

  1. I can definitely relate with this post. I’m gluten-free because of food intolerances, not by choice, but I feel a definite difference when I do not follow the diet. I feel foggy, cranky, emotional, and out of whack. When I stick to gluten-free eating, I feel like the fog lifts and the world seems a little easier. I appreciate this post and these ideas, I will definitely be looking into these products! I’m also a special education teacher, and I see how easily things can effect my students. I’m very interested to hear more about how this diet is helping on the journey with autism!

  2. It’s crazy how many items contain gluten that you wouldn’t even think about! Enjoy Life is one of my favorite GF brands for snacks, but I’m also a big fan of Aldi! They have a huge selection of amazing GF products at great prices.
