More and more people are hopping onto the gluten-free bandwagon. And, thankfully, many are beginning to experience relief from the food-related ailments that have been troubling them.
Unfortunately for the majority of people with Celiac disease, they buck doesn’t stop there. They will continue to battle digestive side effects even after going gluten-free.
Now part of the reason for this is due to trace amounts of gluten hiding in foods and entering the system. However, the much bigger reason is due to sensitivities from food additives that corporations put into their foods.
Unfortunately, it is very difficult for most of us to discern what is “healthy” and what isn’t anymore. Over the years, more and more of our foods have undergone heavy processing, and had various dyes, chemicals, and artificial preservatives added to them in order for them to stay “ready-to-eat” longer.
This focus on convenience has put our health at risk, and is a large reason many of us won’t see the issues arising from this until it is too late.
Thankfully, one of the ways that Celiac sufferers (and non-Celiac sufferers alike) can help remedy this problem is by gaining control of our meals, and focusing on the ingredients of every product we put into them.
As Natural News Blogs states:
Learning the basics of how food should be prepared is a good place to start, if you happen to have somehow lost touch with your food.
This doesn’t necessarily mean you need to always prepare absolutely everything from scratch, but you should at least understand some of the process. This will allow you to make informed decisions on what to buy, and particularly what not to buy.
When you understand that soup should have only a few edible ingredients in it, you quickly realize that what’s sold in a can, virtually every can, is not food. It’s part food, and part chemical preservatives and flavoring to cover the bland, boiled to death food.
The reality is that pre-prepared, processed food tastes terrible, and the only way to make it palatable is to load it up with fake flavors, and fake stabilizers, so it doesn’t deteriorate into a mushy, pasty mess.
Start off small by boiling fresh vegetables, grilling your favorite meat or making a salad and homemade dressing from fresh ingredients.
You can also search the web and for YouTube tutorials on how to cook with “real” foods, rather than with processed ones.
Focus on what you’re putting into your body now. This will help you feel better, and can greatly improve your health in the long run.
