GLUTEN-FREE FOOD FAVORITES
Food For Life Brown Rice Tortillas
These tortillas are not as soft as a flour tortilla, but they are my favorite gluten-free tortilla. They are best when they are fresh so try and consume within a week or so of purchasing and opening. I noticed they start to dry out if they are in your fridge for weeks. I like to warm them up in the oven which makes them softer to wrap or roll. They are great for making a wrap with avocado, hummus and veggies!
Food For Life English Muffins
These were a lifesaver in my first trimester! They are delicious and a great break from bread. They have a traditional gluten-free english muffin and also a gluten-free multi-seed.
Little Northern Bakehouse
This is my current favorite gluten-free bread. It has great texture and doesn’t taste like gluten-free bread, in my opinion. The ingredient list is also wholesome such as quinoa and millet. Whereas some gluten-free products can be full of potato starch, sugar and binders.
Lundberg Family Farms
These rice cakes are great if you need a crunchy cracker. They have such a better taste then traditional rice cakes. I like to top mine with peanut butter, almond butter, hummus or avocado.
Certified Gluten-Free Oats
Oats are naturally gluten-free however, they may be contaminated by gluten containing grains grown nearby or through processing. To enjoy oats on a gluten-free diet, look for certified Gluten-Free Oats. One ½ cup serving of oats also has 5 grams of protein!
Brown rice is a great naturally gluten-free. Brown rice still has the hull and bran intake, where white rice has been processed to remove the hull and bran. The hull and bran are rich in vitamins and minerals such as thiamine, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and potassium.
Quinoa has nearly twice as much protein and fiber per serving as brown rice. Quinoa is also a psuedo-grain which means that it’s actually a seed that cooks like a grain. It’s a great option for those who are gluten-free and grain-free.
Millet is also a psuedo-grain like quinoa because it’s technically a seed. Mullet contains fiber as well as a variety of vitamins and minerals such as Magnesium, Calcium, B-Vitamin and antioxidants. Millet has prebiotic properties which can help support gut health.
