Signs of A Gluten Intolerance & Substitutes
When it comes to a gluten intolerance, it’s more than just stomach issues. So, if you’re noticing the following symptoms, contact your local medical professional, and try substituting gluten in the meantime!
Gluten sensitivity can affect your body in a number of ways, but perhaps most common is pain in the abdominal area. Experiencing gas, bloating, or diarrhea, can be sure signs that your body isn’t responding well to your nutritional choices – however, these can also be linked with issues other than intolerance, so it’s best to turn to your doctor if they persist. Additionally, keep your eyes open for rashes, fatigue, or weight loss, as these can be strong indicators as well.
But it doesn’t always make sense to rush to the doctor in a frenzied state, so, if your symptoms aren’t severe, simply try removing gluten from your diet. Today, we’re much more aware of the varying degrees of gluten intolerance, and as a result, restaurants and grocery stores offer menus and aisles devoted to the gluten-free life. Luckily, this makes a change of this nature, much more attainable and far less stressful.
Ultimately, the change begins with you, so let’s talk about ways you can replace your kitchen staples with gluten free options. For starters, you can replace your everyday, cooking flour with rice flour, Quinoa flour, Amaranth flour, ground Chia seeds, Mesquite flour, and so much more. Truly, the options for this item are endless when you do a little research. Replace your milk with rice milk or soy milk, replace tree nuts with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds or toasted sesame seeds, and replace your everyday yogurt with fruit puree or unsweetened applesauce. Not a bad deal!
Learning your body and all that it needs is a key to living a happy and healthy life – so don’t be afraid to make the changes and embrace a gluten-free lifestyle.
