1.Gluten free is not the worst thing that can happen to you. Look at this as an opportunity to eat the best you can!
2.Beans, rice and potatoes are amazing and versatile- these will staples in your diet.
3.Lean meat and seafood are ideal- but even red meats and bacon have a part in a healthy diet! The most important part here is making sure the meat is not processed any more than it has to be.
4.Eat fresh fruit and veggies. Every meal, and for snacks.
5.Breakfast is very important. Even if you are busy it is important to have a healthy breakfast- preferably something that is high in protein.
6.Eggs and nuts are a wonderful source of protein and healthy fats. Do not fear them- they are tasty.

About / History

I found out after a year of graduate school that I was gluten intolerant. Very intolerant- constant pain, nausea, inability to concentrate, lack of motivation, mood swings, etc. After two days on the diet, I was pain free. After a week, my symptoms had all but disappeared.

Now, I have managed to go gluten free- but gained 30 pounds along the way! So now I have to be gluten free and healthy. Because this all started when I was still in graduate school, working two jobs and newly wed, my habits leaned heavily towards the "easy and lazy" method.

After hearing how much time and energy is spent with other diets- I have decided my method will work the best for me. That and it makes grocery shopping so much easier when you don't have to read the labels for everything!
