Gluten-free alternatives

As mentioned, there is an abundance of health benefits that can be found in whole wheat. While whole wheat is absolutely not an option for a celiac patient, thankfully there are five gluten-free whole grains which offer a range of benefits: amaranth, millet, quinoa, teff, and buckwheat. Food and preparation ideas, as well as a more in-depth summary of them, can be found on the Mayo Clinic’s blog under the article “5 Great Gluten-free Grains” by Jennifer K. Nelson, R.D., L.D., and Katherine Zerasky, R.D., L.D.
