Additionally, some naturally gluten-free foods, such as oats, are often manufactured with gluten-containing grains. The cross-contact that results may mean that the food is no longer appropriate for those on gluten-free diets. It is important to find the products that are safe for you by asking questions and reading labels.

A lot of ultra-processed foods contain gluten (many bakery items, battered and fried items, sugary cereal, etc.). If you are here to improve your diet, I would discourage trying to replicate these unhealthy items. I think it’s a much better strategy to enjoy the many whole foods that are naturally gluten-free.

- Easy Shrimp Fajita Bowl Meal Prep
- Spicy Beef and Black Bean Taco Salad
