Quinoa Taco Bowls on Jun 13, 2016 @ 09:12 am

I'm not gluten free, but I found this recipe a month or two ago for Quinoa Taco Bowls and it is now a favorite in our house! You can put whatever ingredients you like, but use the recipe as an example. We don't like olives, but we love bell peppers, so we add those instead.

I did for 3 months about 2 years ago upon Doctor's advice so we could monitor how my body reacted (and to basically detox my body at the same time).

I had to take out Gluten AND Sugar though, and when I tried shopping in the "Gluten Free" section, I found most of the foods that were Gluten Free were also Sugar happy - so not really healthier that other pre-packaged foods seem to be.

So cooking from scratch, and literally shopping the perimeter of the grocery store should help avoid Gluten for the most part.

I have since reintroduced Gluten, and due to the 3 months of excluding it from my diet, I tend to not have the same cravings (bread, etc.), therefore, it was not as horrible as I thought.

As a temporary fix, I agree it can be good, but unless it's for health (i.e. Celiac), I would just cut down breads and grains vs total elimination as a long-term goal.

Was told by a specialist 2 1/2 years ago that I am both gluten and dairy intolerant, and by ingesting these things for years, I had developed small holes in the lining of my intestine (leaky gut syndrome) as well as candida. Both of these took a toll on my overall wellbeing. I have been gluten and dairy-free ever since, and it's honestly not as hard as it seems when you first start. The best asset you can find is an allergy-friendly cookbook -- I have one that I was using during my elimination diet, and its recipes contained no gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, or nuts. You don't have to worry about all the extras, but a good cookbook is a great start.
Just FYI, quinoa is a perfect protein as well as a gluten-free grain. It has all essential amino acids, so it's a great addition to your diet in any form.
