Gluten Free, the Way to Be.....???

Gluten- free pasta. Gluten-free muffins. Gluten-free pudding. Yes, seriously, pudding!
Did you know what gluten was 3 years ago? 1 year ago? Overnight, health and nutrition stores along with most larger grocery chains began carrying food options marketed towards individuals with "celiac disease" (aka allergy to gluten). Individuals with celiac disease account for 1% of the world's population. Wait, wait, wait... then why do gluten-free options keep popping up on more grocery shelves and restaurant menus?
Health conscious individuals and fitness professionals continue delivering positive results after trying a nutrition program "sans gluten". There's SO MUCH information surrounding this topic, not to mention how many opinions and studies for and against this nutrition regimen.
Therefore, I took a new spin on researching the topic. I chose to spotlight an established, respected, and well researched blog by my fellow expert, Erin Elberson.

A few reasons why she receives my stamp of approval:
  • Her topics are current
  • Her thorough discussions regarding athletes and the specific gluten- free nutritional benefits  
  • Erin has up to date information regarding the basics of a gluten-free lifestyle
  • She got married 6 days before me. Wedding bliss for all!!!
Explore, educate yourself, experiment. I took the gluten-free challenge 13 months ago and it improved my life in so many ways. A few of them include: decreased belly fat, increased energy, improved appearance of skin, hair, and nails, increased awareness, etc. The list goes on and on.
I challenge YOU to open your mind (and your mouth) to the benefits of this nutrition program.
