What do you eat? gluten free answers

When I found out I had Celiac disease, I had to change my eating habits and became a fearless label reader. I love the comment/outcry/statement, “gluten is in everything!”. At first I felt the same way. Now it’s been three years and I’ve got my food list down pat. On a daily basis, I have someone ask me “What do you eat for breakfast/lunch/dinner?”.  I’ve gotten creative with eating options and enjoy having a variety of items in my lunchbox/plate. You will notice that most of the items listed are naturally gluten free. Gluten free substitutes are generally chocked full of sugar and calories. I do enjoy a good gluten free treat every now and then… just not everyday.

Breakfast (each day is generally 1,2, or 3 items from this list)

Please use your own judgement when determining if foods are gluten free and are safe for you to eat. Cross contamination is always a possibility when dining out.

    Thanks for sharing! My reply to the “What can you eat?” question is usually to check out my blog. And, then usually I ask them to name a food they think I can’t eat, and I explain how it can be made gluten free. That works well for celiac disease, there’s very few foods I can’t come up with an explanation for. However, I have an egg allergy, so there are some foods I can’t defend. A gluten, dairy, and egg free omelette, just isn’t meant to be! 🙂
