Is our gluten free diet truly healthy in all respects? Each of us should be asking that question. Very few people need (celiacs or otherwise) need an athlete-in-training diet, but all of us can follow the “My Plate” diet without consuming gluten-toxic food.
The “My Plate Symbol” was designed to replace the “Food Pyramid” program which was the Department of the Army’s recommendation for several years. “My Plate” is not designed for athletes-in-training but it is OK for most of us. I suggest you read this article if you need a quick introduction. I wrote this article to provide
more details. This article talks about the ‘My Plate’ diagram and what it symbolizes.
As you can see, the ‘My Plate’ diet divides the diet into four sections — protein, fruit, vegetables, and grains, and I am planning articles containing recipes for each section. The diet emphasizes high fiber, and high fiber gluten free recipes will be tomorrow’s topic. That will be followed by an article on fruit and an article on vegetables. The last two articles will cover ‘grains’ and ‘proteins’. No links yet since I have not yet actually published the articles.
