Maintaining a Gluten Free Diet isn’t always the easiest. Like anything, it comes with its own challenges as well as many joys. The lifestyle has its own highs and lows, but with a bit of understanding and time, it can truly be a wonderful, healthy pursuit. We’ve outlined a few of those highs and lows here.
Removing Gluten from your diet is essential if you are diagnosed with coeliac or non-coeliac gluten sensitivity. In such cases, the change of diet can have very positive effects on your lifestyle. You can likely feel happier, healthier and more energetic.
Going gluten free removes many unhealthy processed foods from your diet. Many of such foods can cause bloating, indigestion, fatigue, cramping and more. Eliminating glutens removes such symptoms, bringing a whole new positivity with it.
You will become more aware of what you are putting into your body and how it helps or harms you. With such an awareness, you can further maintain a nutritional mindset to ensure you are getting the most out of your food.
There are nutrients and vitamins from wheats, rye and barley, that can be very beneficial, including fibre, iron and zinc. If it unnecessary to do so, removing these products completely can have some negative effects on your health and body.
While we do our best to keep our products as affordable as possible, a gluten-free lifestyle can be more pricey than alternatives - especially if you are used to eating particularly cheap (and often unhealthy) foods.
Although most restaurants and food-stores have gluten free options available, the dietary requirement definitely mean more planning, especially when going out. Sometimes that can mean a little less spontaneity.
