Gluten Free Bread? Forget About It!
Have you ever noticed how hungry you get for something the moment you know you can't have it? This is especially true with a gluten free diet. Bread is the food most associated with wheat and gluten, so when you know you can't have it you want it.
This happens even when you weren’t a huge bread eater to begin with!
It’s frustrating until you take a stand. It’s you against your brain and sometimes you just need to say, “Bread?...Forget about it!”
You can look online for gluten free bread recipes, or other gluten free pastas and flours, and find an abundance of information. But Virginia Rose, author of a menu planning series “Food for Life” looks at the healthy menu options in a gluten free diet in a completely different way.
“There are so many great meals you can make that naturally have no gluten. When you start from that mindset of abundance and all your options, the need to scour the grocery aisles high and low for a gluten free label on your bread, or feel deprived because you can’t eat bread, will disappear.”
When your body gets a balance of nutrients and is nutritionally fulfilled, the cravings you once experienced naturally disappear. To keep you brain in line with your desire for a gluten free life, switching for a scarcity mindset to an abundant mindset will keep your inner voices quiet.
An example of a great gluten free dinner is a grilled piece of salmon with a side of assorted steamed vegetables and steamed brown rice (not the processed variety). Another is a grilled chicken bowl served over lettuce with black beans, tomatoes, avocado, and a dollop of Greek yogurt. Both are filling, satisfying, and don’t require you to go on a quest for bread.
To be successful with a gluten free diet, look for all that you can eat rather than concentrating on what you cannot eat. That’s where the Food for Life Weekly Meal Plans can help. Written with busy families in mind, this series gives you quick guides for eating healthy every week.
