This is truth, simple truth. I eat gluten-free, because gluten makes me sick, I eat gluten-free, because my body rejects the gluten & causes me pain. I never once thought that switching to a gluten-free diet meant that I was suddenly eating healthy. I do however eat healthier than I did before, but a prime mistake that people make when they decide to go gluten-free, or Vegan, etc. is that they still buy processed food/pre packaged food that it labeled gluten-free, so that’s healthy, right? NO! It’s just gluten-free, or vegan – it’s still potato chips, or a frozen dinner, it’s not health food, or diet food by any means, it probably is a little better for you than something that does contain all the extra preservatives, but it’s not fruit, it’s not a vegetable, it’s still junk food. Here is a great post, I read on an amazing blog Elana’s Pantry that lead me to write this quick post. Stop fooling yourselves, you’re not eating healthy by eating gluten-free, you’re simply eating gluten-free. I don’t eat as healthy as I should all the time, I do however always eat gluten-free, but I don’t kid myself into thinking that I’m eating healthy when I sit on the couch and indulge in a gluten-free dark chocolate peanut butter cup. I do however enjoy my occasional indulgence!! Enjoy & eat on!!
