Yesterday’s post really got me thinking about all the food items I eat and what could or could not contain gluten. For example, my meals yesterday:
Snack: fruit smoothie with vanilla whey protein powder
Lunch: sliced turkey rolled around bits of Cabot cheese, carrots, hummus
Supper: Post Zumba Veggie Bites with Greek Yogurt Ranch
So of everything I ate yesterday, there was the potential for 6…maybe 7 if I count Cabot cheese, ingestions of trace amounts of gluten. The toast, almond milk, protein powder, turkey, hummus, and veggie bites.
And that my friends is super frustrating. My meals yesterday don’t seem overly processed to me, but I can see where I could switch some things out. I had thought about challenging myself to a week or a month without gluten free substitutes, but gluten could be in so many other items as well.
I don’t really know what the solution is, or if there really even needs to be one, it’s just interesting to think about.
