Food Heals Podcast #82 How to go Gluten-Free with Emily Turner

Motivated by a desire to prove that going #glutenfree can be both fun and easy, Emily founded Gluten Free With Emily to provide people with resources and #recipes to help them remove this ingredient from their diet. “If your digestion is off, everything is off,” and the increase in people going gluten-free points to many people not feeling good. Even in tiny quantities, gluten can have a reactionary effect on the gut. “Sometimes more than people realise,” says Emily.

#Gluten is only found in modern grains—ancient grains like rice, quinoa, amaranth, do not contain any. Wheat has been modified so drastically since the industrial revolution that the human body hasn’t evolved to cope with it. Add to that GMO practices and you’ve got a substance that is impossible to digest. Wheat causes gut inflammation in everyone, not only those suffering from celiac or gluten allergy. This eventually leads to autoimmune diseases and other health issues. In fact, food has changed a lot in the last couple of decades, just look at the size of vegetables in shops these days! The way we’ve changed food has had a massive impact on people’s health.

Emily has #celiac , which is an autoimmune disease triggered by eating gluten. Celiac isn’t the same as a gluten allergy, though both share many symptoms and are managed by avoiding gluten. But thankfully, going gluten free doesn’t have to mean a lifetime of boring food!

Emily knows the baking element is really important to people and her recipes reflect this. When she became gluten free 14 years ago, Emily started to experiment with different flours – she has 15 different ones in her kitchen!

Emily tells us all about why it’s important to buy the best, freshest, highest quality produce possible, and why cooking in your own kitchen is better for your gut health. She also shares her favorite date spots for #vegan , #plantbased and #delicious food. Plus, find out how to make vegan, gluten-free strawberry pesto in just 5 minutes using only 6 ingredients!
