Gluten free does not necessarily mean healthy by Oreke xx


We strive to eat a gluten free diet at home mainly because my youngest son has a nasty reaction to gluten, in fact he is severely allergic to a lot of things.

Foods containing gluten are typically the foods associated with weight gain and other dietary diseases . If you bake a cake using gluten free flour  but use the same amount of  sugar and fat  as you would a regular cake then that cake is still unhealthy. A gluten free diet will only be healthy if you cut out on refined sugars and bad fats.

It is great that there is more choice available to those that are on a gluten free diet but it is important to remember that gluten free does not always mean healthy. Until next time xx

PS I enjoyed the free’d bread xx
