How I Went Gluten Free – Gluten Free Diet, Gluten Free Foods

I love bread. Period. Especially the dinner rolls of bread that they give you at restaurants before your meal. I can eat 3 or so pieces just waiting for my food to come. So seeing that gluten was in bread was a blow to my stomach, but for my face I decided to at least try. Lets rewind a bit though….

About 4 weeks ago, I came across Raven Elyse’s face routine video where she talks about what she’s been doing now that has helped her severe acne. Lately she tried a new face wash but she also mentioned going gluten free. I have mild acne and wasn’t interested in trying another OTC topical product with the same ingredients that haven’t worked before but I was curious about going gluten free. I knew that gluten causes inflammation in some people and acne is a form of inflammation so I’m not sure why I never thought of this sooner.

Oh I know why. My sister told me to do an elimination diet where I only ate vegetables for a few days then slowly add other foods back into my diet. Well those few days that I tried, I felt like I was going to die (okay I’m being a drama queen) but I was sooo hungry so I figured that wasn’t for me.

This time around, I decided to not go as extreme and just eliminate gluten from my diet but I didn’t know where to start. I came across this chart that was very helpful from GlutenFreeLiving.com.

And then I turned to Pinterest


It pretty much said that anything made with wheat, barley, rye, or malt which includes all pastas, some soy sauces, regular flours, all breads (including bredding and fillers) HAVE gluten in them and you should stay away. Anything with corn in it like corn flour, corn meal, rice, fruits, vegetables did NOT have gluten in it and they were safe to eat.

Although I LOVE bread, it actually isn’t that hard. I’ve never been big into pasta so I skip those dishes, skip the bread, and stick mainly to meat, vegetables, and rice. If you don’t know what’s in something, just skip it. Better safe than sorry.

I hope this helps some people that are on a gluten free journey as well!
