You may be wondering what gluten is. Gluten is a protein that gives bread its chewy texture. It also provides strength and elasticity to dough. This provides the bread with it’s recognizable structure, which is why you can’t bake gluten-free bread the same way as gluten-containing breads. Gluten has been used in baking for centuries, so if you’ve never had the opportunity to try it before, it’s worth experimenting with once in your life!
There are many reasons to consider making some of your favorite foods gluten free like pasta dishes or sandwiches, though. Many people find that they feel better when they eat fewer processed foods and plenty of fresh vegetables (especially leafy greens). Eating healthier means eating less food overall and gluten-free is healthy, just tasting awful – except our recipes baby!
