How to Beat Wheat

How to Beat Wheat

Due to the rise of Celiac disease, more and more people have to live gluten-free lives. Good thing we have some tips and recipes to make living without wheat a little bit easier!

Gluten is a protein found in many grains, most notably wheat, barley, rye, and oats.  Many people are forced to live without gluten due to Celiac disease, an allergy to the protein.   The number of people with this disease increases every year, so the number of gluten-free eaters is always growing.  Just because you have to follow a gluten-free diet doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on all of your favorite foods.  There are many alternatives to white and wheat flour, so you can still indulge in pizza, pancakes, and more.

There are a number of alternatives to the typical white and wheat flour.  Rice flour comes in either brown or white and can make a great substitute.  Buckwheat flour is nutty-tasting and very healthy.  Corn flour or cornmeal can also be used in place of normal flour.  And quinoa flour has a high protein content and is a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, magnesium, and iron.
