Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, and any foods or ingredients derived from these sources. Some people follow a gluten-free diet out of medical necessity. For example, if you have celiac disease, it’s essential to eliminate even trace sources of gluten. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is another condition that warrants a gluten-free diet.
You’re probably aware that a slice of whole wheat bread contains gluten, but you may not know that gluten can also be hiding in condiments, lunch meats, and other foods. That’s why it’s crucial to read food labels when you’re eliminating gluten from your diet. However, you won’t need to do this with our gluten-free bundle since we’ve already selected meals that are entirely free of gluten.
Meanwhile, many wholesome foods are naturally gluten-free. Fruits, vegetables, pulses (the category of beans, peas, and lentils), eggs, milk, and unprocessed meats are gluten-free. Gluten-free whole grains include millet, quinoa, and brown rice, to name a few.
Our gluten-free meals contain a filling mix of naturally gluten-free ingredients, such as butternut squash, corn, brown rice, lentils, black beans, broccoli, and zucchini. In addition to being gluten free, these ingredients contain health-protecting vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.
While these meals are free of gluten, they offer balanced nutrition, a full serving of vegetables, and loads of flavor. So whether you need to be following a gluten-free diet or just want some easy, balanced, and delicious meals to add to your lineup, this bundle will cover your bases.
