Is there a preferred way to have eat healthy when you're a vegitarian who doesn't eat gluten or sugar?

Gluten free: FREE GUIDE 2018

- Wheat
- Rye
- Barley

o Wheat
o Barley
o Rye
o Oats

o Food Starch (unspecified)
o Malt
o Brewer’s Yeast
o Vitamin E (beauty products and Vitamin E oil often use a wheat-derived form)

- GF is typically defined as a product that contains no more than 20ppm of gluten
- REFER TO THIS LINK FOR DETAILED INFORMATION ON GLUTEN FREE LABELING:
o https://celiac.org/live-gluten-free/glutenfreediet/label-reading/








ALTERATIONS FOR GF DIET:

- Eat Naturally GF grains:
o Rice
o Millet
o Chia
o Quinoa
o Corn
o Buckwheat
o Certified GF Oats
o Teff
o Amaranth
- Find a flour replacement:
o Pamela’s
o Cup for Cup (highly recommend!)
o Domata
o Bob’s Red Mill
o King Arthur
- Try cuisines with little to no gluten:
o Mexican
o Thai
o Indian
- Find an alternative to beer:
o There are GF beers …. Just not many: Redbridge (by Budweiser), Green’s (Belgium based company), New Grist
o Hard Ciders: many on the market currently
o Wine
- Utilize GF resources:
o Books
o Websites
o Blogs
o GF menus online or at restaurants
o Registered Dietitians (large grocery stores, public health clinics, private practices, hospitals, schools)
- Higher Costs:
o GF bread, pasta, and starch items are more expensive
o GF menu items at restaurants are often more expensive (including substitutions for sides)
o Look for sales, discounts, and coupons
o Try to eat more naturally GF grains (as listed above) as alternatives to traditional baked goods and pastas



EATING OUT:

- ASK!!
o Always ask if there is a GF menu
o Ask if there are items on the menu that are GF
o Ask if there are items on the menu that can be made GF
o Ask for alternatives to questionable ingredients
? Example 1: oil & vinegar, instead of a pre-made salad dressing
? Example 2: baked potato or salad, instead of French fries
- Franchises vs. Local Joints:
o Franchises are great when traveling: if you know that a particular chain offers GF items, then you know there are safe items wherever this brand is located
o Small restaurants often make more food from scratch: Meaning that they can tell you what is in the dish and how it is made, even if they do not have a list of GF menu items
o Both types of restaurants are frequently attuned to the GF diet: If you ask up front what options are available for you, this will help you to have a safe dining experience (and save you from any digestive distress later!)
- Eating with Family & Friends:
o Offer to bring a dish
o Offer to bring GF ingredients or to provide information on what items to buy
o Be prepared to say “No Thank You”: Going GF changes the social aspect of eating. Saying “no” to questionable homemade food isn’t rude, and is necessary for both your short and long-term health.

RECOMMENDED RESOURCES:

- BOOKS:
o The Joy of Cooking
? Or any book that strikes your fancy
? Even if you don’t plan on cooking, having a classic cook book on hand as a reference will help you become familiar with the components of common dishes
o Babycakes
? There are several GF cookbooks out there: usually you just need one with good baking recipes
o Mexican Everyday
? Mexican cuisine is almost completely gluten free, very affordable, and most ingredients are in the average grocery store

o Celiac.org
o Glutenfreeliving.com
o Glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com
o Cup4cup.com
o Pamelasproducts.com
o Udisglutenfree.com

o Barilla GF pastas
o Progresso and Pacific soups (various)
o Pacific broths
