Many dieting trends have gained some momentum in recent years, and one of the most popular among them is the gluten-free way of eating and living.
However, simply replacing natural gluten-containing foods with their processed counterparts isn’t always a good idea.
Fighting Fire With Fire
The problem with gluten-free foods comes from the fact that these products, although being stripped of gluten, actually contain other equally harmful ingredients in its place.
Usually, among those ingredients are sugar, trans and hydrogenated fats, preservatives, artificial flavors, emulsifiers, and many, many more unhealthy compounds cooked up in a lab in order to give those foods that same gluten-containing look, feel, and taste.
Natural sources of gluten are fresh fruit and veggies, meat, eggs, nuts, seeds, and oils. But if you want to eliminate gluten from your diet, don’t just go for the processed versions of these foods – instead, replace them with organic foods which contain the same or similar nutrients and ingredients, minus the gluten, of course.
