You should be avoiding “gluten” too? Or if you have a wheat intolerance, you basically have a gluten intolerance?Nat :angelUmm i think it might be a little of both but now i dont want to eat wheat bread anymore lol :lolIf you avoid the following foods you will be avoiding gluten.Im sure there are others but this is just some. ALL wheat,oats,rye,barley as flour,bread,breadcrumbs,biscuits,batters,rusk,semolina,cake,pastry,pizza,pasta,thickened sauces,gravy,and soups as well as some salad dressings.foods which are ok to eat ,cornflour,rice flour,soya flour,potato starch arrowroot ,Cereals such as rice,rice noodles,sago,tapiocameat,fish,eggs,cheese,milk,vegetables,salad,peas,beans,potatoes,fruits,nuts,butter ,margarine,vegetable oil.——shannongosh shannon the gluten list sounds like so tasty.. ~sigh~Blah, I’d rather have acne than give up eating those foods :cryThat’s why there’s PLENTY of Gluten-Free Substitutes. I’m on this diet and I occasionally still eat all those goodies and no problems with breakouts…maybe it’s because they are GF or maybe it’s just because I’m Low Carbing, either way, it works. =) Oh and I do eat oats…Comments are closed.
