How to Go Gluten Free

Hey guys dr. axe here welcome to my kitchen today I’ll be talking about how to go gluten-free the reason I think it’s so important to go gluten-free is is gluten is really hard for most people to digest one out of every 133 people have celiac disease which means they don’t digest or tolerate gluten at all and one out of every seven people are severely gluten intolerant which means if you eat it you’re going to notice a outward reaction now also I’ll say this I can tell a difference myself when I eat gluten when specifically when grains aren’t sprouted it’s I just I feel fatigued lack of energy and those are some symptoms that you may have if you’re gluten intolerant if you have weight gain or let me just say this the benefits of going gluten free or typically you’ll lose more weight you’ll notice improved improved digestion it oftentimes will help your thyroid function at a higher level and you’ll notice more energy you’ll feel thinner overall you’ll you’ll notice some differences in your body when you go gluten-free so there’s a lot of reasons why everyone watching this should be going gluten-free but I want to give you some practical steps right now what I’ve done in my life and helped thousands of patients do in helping them go gluten free and again gluten is a protein found in most grains and there are some grains that are gluten free and we’ll talk about those in a minute but just to start us off here I want to open up my paint pantry and give you guys some ideas here number one let me say this for breakfast rather than doing cereals or bread or or something like that that may have gluten in it what I’ve chosen to do is typically do a berry smoothie now if I don’t do a berry smoothie for breakfast which is basically berries and coconut milk or berries and amasi and then a gluten-free protein powder there are other things you can do I want to show you a new product that I’ve been using personally a Jordan Rubin a friend of mine I tried this over his house and then bought some myself these are coconut wraps just like you have gluten-free wraps that are made of brown rice that’s a good option my new favorite thing our coconut wraps basically it’s made out of coconut meat coconut water and Himalayan sea salt they are awesome full of healthy fat in a small amount of carbohydrates so this is great for anybody whether you’re a diabetic or trying to lose weight or just in general stay fit you’re getting raw coconut and these new pure coconut wraps and so these things are awesome so I use now some things I do with this I’ll make some eggs fried some eggs into a breakfast burrito for lunch I’ll actually make some chicken salad and throw it in here but anyways using these wraps has been awesome these are pure coconut wraps here again gluten free raw an alkaline option pretty awesome they’re got those here in the cupboard another thing I’ll do here for breakfast actually this is kind of my special mixture I’ve made up this is made of golden flax seed chia seeds and hemp seeds and I’ll put a couple of several tablespoons of that every morning for breakfast but again doing different nuts and seeds is a great way to go gluten free another idea something I did last night for dinner as I bought some grouper and I made pistachio and crusted grouper so I bought some different pistachios also I took some different flowers here this is almond flour and so nut flours are gluten free flours so whether you’re cooking chicken you can in cussed it with encrusted with almond flour or again a nut flour or again you can use actually coconut flours another good thing coconut coconut you can see here labeled coconut another coconut flour I have there but I tend to buy mostly gluten-free flours and whether I buy most my flowers at up this general convenience store called Kroger I know they have them at Publix you can also check Whole Foods obviously has most of these and another thought is if you have a Vitamix or a food processor or a blender or just a powerful blender like I do here I would throw nuts and seeds like last night I took raw pistachios put them in the blender and ground them up myself and made my own flower and then encrusted the grouper with that tonight I’ll probably do chicken and actually do chicken encrusted with almonds and flax seeds and actually coconut flakes but there are some ideas for going gluten-free now another thing you can do with your flowers as you can buy just general like this is Bob’s Red Mill you can read here gluten-free pancake mix and this is basically made of garbanzo bean flour typically okay so bean fly our beans are also gluten-free that’s another option there in Bob’s Red Mill flour you know there’s a lot of different options there to do as well so again nuts and seeds tend to be in coconut nuts and seeds and coconut almond flour coconut flour are some of my favorite ways to go gluten free another option rather than doing a sandwich for lunch or if you do want to do a sandwich and use bread again you can do a coconut wrap instead you could do a brown rice flour instead or you can also do something like a like you can get gluten-free bread made of brown rice or amaranth or quinoa or millet there are some options for you but instead I typically like to do a big salad and top off the salad with some chicken maybe some walnuts as another good option snacks during the day some good gluten free snacks again something like guacamole and sliced bell peppers or my favorite gluten-free crackers Mary’s gone crackers dipping those in some hummus is another good option or another good dip is doing some salsa and again using some avocado to make your own you know your own guacamole at home those are all great options in going gluten-free buddy so here’s your action steps for going gluten through number one change your breakfast if you’re doing grains if you’re doing cereal breads things like that for breakfast switch it out start doing that berry smoothie for breakfast or a burrito with a coconut wrap for lunch rather doing a sandwich with gluten-containing bread or chips what you want to do instead is hey do a big salad or hey do some do some chicken salad or just skip the bun all together for dinner you know skip the pasta white flour white rice any of that stuff and go ahead and start doing you get brown rice pasta if you want to do some sort of pasta but in general I tend to do double or triple veg vegetables and then do chicken or fish or something like that encrusted and covered in an almond flour and then again remember snacks you can do nuts and seeds you can do guacamole hummus salsa things like that different dips are a great option or raw cheese is one of my favorite with the Mary’s gun crackers flax seed crackers there’s some options for you going to gluten free getting benefits if you go gluten free your to notice you have more energy you’re going to lose weight your metabolisms going to be up you’re going to notice less bloating you’re going to typically notice your joints feel better as well feel younger so a lot of benefits in going gluten-free at first I when I heard I needed to go or I started realizing I needed to go gluten-free I thought that sounds like it’s going to be hard but you know what if you follow some of these action steps it’s going to be no problem at all hey thanks
