Eating Healthy with Celiac Disease: A Guide to Avoiding Gluten

Meal prep is hard.  To be honest no one has time to have creative and healthy meals every day.  It is almost impossible to always eat right and bring food to work every day.  Finding good recipes can also be difficult.  There is a lot of trial and error that goes into finding meals that are good to bring to work for lunch or to finding dinners that are easy to make on a regular basis.

Trying to meal prep with Celiac disease is even harder.  The consequence for not meal prepping is much worse than spending a little extra on lunch that day.  If there are no items of a restaurant's menu that caters to someone with Celiac they may have the choice of not eating or suffering from symptoms for the whole night.

People with Celiac disease or those that have a gluten intolerance must be careful about what they eat.  They need to avoid foods that have gluten in them.  Gluten is abundant in many products.  If gluten is eaten by someone with Celiac disease they can experiences intense pain in their abdomen.  Including bloating, gas, constipation, and even acne.  If the person continues to eat gluten their body may stop absorbing nutrients that they need.
