Starting off on a Gluten-Free Lifestyle After a Celiac Diagnosis

Starting Off with Natural Alternatives

The most nutritious and cost-effective way to start off a gluten free lifestyle is to choose foods that do not contain gluten as part of their naturally occurring composition. Foods that are naturally gluten free include:

  • Meat
  • Poultry
  • Fish
  • Dairy
  • Vegetables
  • Fruits and berries
  • Nuts, legumes, and beans.

Other ingredients to also opt for that normally don’t contain gluten include:

  • Oils derived from plants and seeds (like olive oil, coconut oil and so forth)
  • Herbs and spices
  • Natural sweeteners like pure cane sugar, stevia, agave, honey, or monk fruit
