Low Carb, Gluten Free Cooking: Try These Easy Gluten Free Recipes!

One of the most popular phrases circling around the dieting world today is ‘gluten-free’, and while most people know that going on a gluten-free diet can have health benefits, not everyone knows whether or not they should give it a try.

Gluten-free diets can work extremely well with the Atkins diet. Since gluten is found in wheat, rye and barley, which are all high in carbs, Atkins-approved foods contain significantly less gluten than standard diets or recipes.

Gluten-free diets are also important for people with celiac disease, because for them, gluten causes the immune system to damage the lining of the small intestine resulting in gas, bloating and indigestion. Recently, increasing numbers of people have been experiencing gluten sensitivity, which means they experience symptoms of celiac disease without the intestinal damage. A gluten-free diet can be one of the best ways to eliminate these symptoms.

The best time to start a diet is always now, so check out these great gluten-free and Atkins approved recipes:
