The Gluten-Free Choice: Make Sure the Proof is in the Pudding

 

by Carmen Schwartz

Gluten-free is a term that becomes quite confused out there in the universe nowadays. There are articles upon articles regarding the fact that gluten-free is a ‘fad’; but for millions of others, it’s the only way to better health.

 

Groceries, health food stores and farmer’s markets are stocking shelves with gluten-free products; however, their reason for doing this may be simply to supply a trend. Whatever the influx may be, the bottom line is that offering a gluten-free variety of choices literally saves lives for people suffering from celiac disease.

 

It is a fact that many out there believe going gluten-free is healthier and will help them lose weight. But the facts need to be understoodBlack-Beans-n-Rice-Lrg that even though the gluten-free diet is necessary for some, others will fall short of the vitamins and minerals that are must-haves by going down the gluten-free road.

 

Celiac disease is a dangerous illness because it can go undetected for a good, long time. Although professionals say that only 1% of the American populace suffer from celiac, the truth is that there are many more who have no idea that celiac disease is a part of their daily life.

 

For those who are unaware, celiac disease is defined as an abnormal immune response to gluten; and even though that description may not seem overly-worrisome, celiac can and does damage the lining of the small intestine. When that occurs, nutrients, vitamins, minerals – the very essentials of life – can not be absorbed by the body that needs it.

 

From anemia to bone pain to a severe skin rash, celiac disease does give symptoms; however the symptoms are ‘general’ – which means they can come along with other illnesses. To discover celiac, a blood test that detects antibodies related to that abnormal immune response is administered. If positive, a biopsy is then performed. As you can see, this is a very serious matter, and one that will be on the rise if better detection doesn’t come about.

 

The gluten-free diet is the ‘Superman’, so to speak, for the celiac sufferer. This diet needs to be one that is made up of the healthiest foods possible. Being wary when shopping, though, is a must.

 

There are some foods on the market that claim the category of gluten-free, yet they are high in saturated fat as well as cholesterol. Others may be high in calories, while still others are coming out saying they help people who are sensitive to gluten, but the proof is definitely not in the pudding.

 

As always, natural foods are the best way to go for a gluten free diet. Lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables – these are all on the ‘good’ list for people with celiac disease. And that’s great…at home. At home you can perfectly manage that meal. But who are we kidding? In this world there is always somewhere to run to. There are meetings in the workplace, lunch hours that are missed, and people do not get the nutrition to keep up their energy to get through the rest of the day.

 

In college there are classes that have to be taken and a dorm that basically becomes a cave when study time is of the utmost importance. And there are also recreational activities that we all want to partake of with our families. (Have you ever put together the perfect meal over a campfire?) It’s not easy, and it’s even more difficult for someone who must stick to that specialized gluten-free diet.

 

Pre-packaged frozen foods, or meals in a box become the answer for some, yet when you’re on the go neither one of these options work. Because of this issue, Storehouse Foods came along with the quintessential idea for the three million suffering from celiac disease who do not have the viable option to sit at home and prepare all their meals from scratch.

With no refrigeration necessary, these gluten-free choices are perfect for the busy person.
