A couple days ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca Speert. After months of trying to connect – due to a mutual friend (thank you Jodi) who mentioned this website – we finally met up! Over a cup of tea, we talked for a couple hours about ourselves, our passion for health (which often comes from illness) and what drove the changes that we made to eating more nourishing foods.
One of the questions I often get when talking about food is “How do you eat a gluten free or grain free diet?”. Though, for a couple years my daughter was on a grain free protocol (GAPS), she first went gluten free. That original transition for me was overwhelming, but once you get some pointers and alternatives, it just becomes a way of life, so to speak. Rebecca has been eating gluten free for years. She recently wrote an article “12 Easy Ways to Go Gluten Free” which she has graciously given me permission to linkup on Living Healthy ‘n’ Happy. If you are thinking about giving gluten-free a try, or ‘why’ you might want to give it a try, here are some great tips from Rebecca.

The protein can offset a host of different symptoms that one might not have guessed would be food related. Headaches, skin rashes, mood swings, and poor attention could all be attributed to a gluten reaction. If you have a chronic illness, gluten could be aggravating the situation. Why not remove it for a week and see how you feel?
