The easiest way to maintain a healthy diet when going GF? Load up on fruits and veggies.
Every meal, remember to make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
If your favorite foods are burgers, sandwiches or pizza (all gluten-free), there’s no need to give these up; just load them up with veggies: plenty of lettuce, tomato, onion on a burger; mushrooms and spinach on a pizza. You get the idea. Incorporate veggies into your favorite dishes.
If prepping fresh vegetables seems to take too much time, do this step ahead of time when you have a few minutes, or use frozen or canned vegetables instead.
Craving a sweet snack? Reach for a piece of fresh fruit. A fabulously healthy and easy snack.
Are you a dessert fan? Go ahead and have some of that (gluten-free) chocolate cake (or other baked good). But make it a half portion or less and make your dessert plate healthier, prettier and more satisfying by including fruit on the side. Berries, fresh sliced pear, or the fruit of your choice make a delicious complement.For more ways to find favorite gluten-free products, download our Guide to Gluten-Free Living!
