Is gluten a problem for me?

If you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity then you’ll want to remove gluten from your diet. Even a small amount could cause trouble for you, triggering an immune response that could deal extensive damage to the lining of your small intestine. This compromises your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food and could easily result in health complications and conditions like infertility, nerve damage, osteoporosis and in some cases, seizures, the Harvard Health Publishing says.

How to go gluten free?

For starters, you will need to stay away from traditional breads and cereals as well as pasta, pizza and beer. Some types of “natural flavorings” also contain gluten so you will need to be more conscious of what you eat.

Gluten free solutions

One way to keep your diet gluten free is to prepare meals on your own. That way, you’re sure of what goes into your meals. You won’t have to worry that you’re risking health problems by trying out takeout food.

However, if you haven’t got the time to prepare meals all the time or you simply can’t see yourself cooking for yourself, then you can take your pick out of the many gluten free restaurants in Boston MA.

Plenty of flavors and tastes

You can always mix it up, though. Maybe you’re in the mood to cook some days and some days, you’ll just want to head on over to one of your favorite restaurants for a gluten free brunch or dinner. Just make sure you pick gluten free restaurants in Boston MA that are extremely careful of the meals they serve. Some might try to trick you, saying they use gluten-free buns when they don’t. You’ll want to read reviews and feedback first if you’re trying a new restaurant just to expand your gluten-dining options.
