Do you have Celiac Disease?

I have found that a Low Carb or Ketogenic Lifestyle will help with the battle against Celiac disease.  Celiac is a sensitivity to Gluten. Gluten is found in many foods otherwise considered wholesome.

Eliminating foods that contain gluten – wheat, rye, barley, spelt, kamut and triticale aren’t always enough. Just because something says that it is wheat-free doesn’t mean that it is gluten free.  Best thing to do is read labels.  Know what a label means – For Example: Hydrolyzed vegetable protein on an ingredient list may be made from wheat, soy, corn or a mix of grains.

Here is a list of Gluten Free Foods:

Beans, legumes, Buckwheat and kasha (check labels), Carob, Cheese – plain (check label if shredded), Coffee and tea (check label if flavored), Corn products including cornstarch, corn flour, cornmeal, corn grits, Cream Cheese, Cottage Cheese, Eggs, Fresh and frozen vegetables and vegetable juices, Fresh fruit and fruit juices, Fresh meats and poultry – plain (check ingredients to make sure not basted or injected with a wheat-containing product), Milk, buttermilk, cream, Millet, quinoa, flax, sorghum and flours derived from them, Nuts and seeds and flours made from them, Rice, including brown rice, basmati, jasmine and Arborio, and rice flour (check labels), Tapioca, Tofu (read label)

All items above that are in bold letters also qualify for a low carb or ketogenic lifestyle.  So in my humble opinion, the best diet for someone with Celiac disease is a ketogenic or low carb diet.   Give it a shot – If you want to know other ideas of foods let us know.  We will be adding recipes to this site as well. 

Have a wonderful and fabulous day and we look forward to brining you many more ideas to help combat health issues that you may have in your life.
