Health Coach Jaye’s Gluten-Free Guide

June 5, 2017

A gluten-free diet is recommended to treat Celiac Disease, wheat allergies and gluten sensitivities. If you have any autoimmune issues such as Hashimotos Thyroiditis, MS or Lupus you should talk to your doctor about possibly avoiding gluten as some studies show that it may cause inflammation and worsening of autoimmune symptoms. You can find gluten-free pasta, cereal, bread, waffles, pancakes, and cookies at most natural foods food stores, many supermarkets, and some local grocers. The wheat today is not the same wheat from 50 years ago; it’s often genetically modified. Below are some gluten free options and substitutes.




Gluten-Free Foods

  • Potatoes (preferably sweet potatoes)

  • Buckwheat

  • Oats (*must be labeled gluten-free to avoid cross-contamination)

  • Corn

  • Rice

  • Quinoa

  • Amaranth

  • Millet

  • Beans

  • Nuts and nut butters

  • Eggs

  • Fresh fruit

  • Fresh vegetables

  • Herbs and spices

  • Meats, poultry and fish purchased without sauce or seasonings (preferably antibiotic free, free range) 

  • Home-made soups (avoid bouillon cubes, barley malt, and all types of pasta)

Foods to Avoid (To determine if you have gluten sensitivities avoid these foods for 2 weeks. If you have less bloating and more energy, it’s likely you have a sensitivity to gluten and should eliminate them from your diet permanently!)

  • Wheat

  • Spelt

  • Rye

  • Barley

  • Modified food starch

  • Barley enzymes (found in majority of breakfast cereals), soy sauce, and distilled vinegar (malt vinegar)

  • Beer
