Yesterday I chatted with my local NBC news affiliate about gluten-free living, The Pure Kitchen, and the upcoming Gluten & Allergen-Free Expo in Chicago this weekend! I will be attending the expo and selling copies of my book all weekend. If you’ll be there, swing by and say hi!
Before you watch the clip, I wanted to chat about something else briefly. I’ve had a lot of readers and friends ask me lately if people who don’t necessarily need to eat gluten-free can benefit from a gluten-free diet. The answer, quite simply, is YES!
Even if you’re feeling just fine, there’s a good chance that you could feel even better by avoiding foods with wheat. One of my friends recently told me that her doctor suggested she trial a gluten-free diet for a month to help ease a few digestive issues she was having. Within 3 days of going gluten-free, she was a total convert! Not only did her digestive symptoms disappear, but she also felt more energized, focused, and stronger during workouts.
I’m not saying that gluten-free is a must for everyone, but for most of us it makes a noticeable difference in our overall well-being. If you’ve been considering the idea of trying a gluten-free diet for a while, I urge you to give it a go. Chances are you’ll feel like a new you.
