Dining In or Dining Out with Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is not a sentence; gluten free diet does not have to be distasteful or low in nutrition. It takes just little effort to be gluten wise, and learn to have a hearty food whether you dine out or dine in at home.

Celiac disease affects little less than one percent of the population. It is a disease in which one’s intestine suffer due to the unwarranted reaction of the immune system to the group of proteins together named gluten (like gliadin, secalin, and hordein)(1). Yes, unlike common belief, gluten is not a single compound, but rather a name given to the group of proteins that are found in few commonly consumed grains like wheat, rye, and barley.
