Lifestyle Changes: Going Gluten Free

Dear Readers,

I feel as if I owe you an explanation and an apology. So much has happened in my life and I have to admit blogging fell to the wayside.

Without getting into the specifics, I’ve had a few health scares, from blood clots, to unexplained bruising, inflammation and heart pains. Thankfully, the doctor has ruled out some of the scarier options. And that’s a good thing.

For now I am working on lifestyle changes. Some are easier than others – like taking vitamins. The hardest, thus far, has been going gluten free.

I’m the first to scream, “I love my carbs!” I was raised on bread, pastas, and white rice – all carbs that contain gluten and make a person’s blood sugar levels go up.  I’ve eaten these foods day in, day out, for almost four decades.  But I now know that not making these changes will impact my health and my longevity.

What does this mean for the blog?

I will now feature gluten-free recipes, culturally relevant gluten free meals, on Latina On a Mission. Because gluten free should not mean lacking in flavor.

Our food is part of our cultura. It teaches. It bonds. It loves.

And, I hope to continue to do all these things with each gluten free recipe I share.

Let’s chat! Do you eat gluten free or know of someone who does? What tips do you have for a new gluten free eater? Share in a comment so we can all learn from your wisdom!

    Glutn free diet greatly boosts your health. I used to avoid bread, pasta, and sweets except for dark choko a couple of times a week, and I lost some weight. Your article is very interesting and thanks for explanation :)
