Gluten-free diets have become increasingly popular in the past few years. Some folks turn to wheat-free diets for weight loss, while others use them to find relief from wheat or gluten allergies or food intolerances. Whatever your reason, we know that figuring out how to avoid gluten can be tricky. From your morning cereal to the bread in your lunchtime sandwich to your dinner pasta, gluten is one of the most common ingredients in the grocery store.

Q: Should I be using gluten-free cosmetics?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
Many people today are following gluten-free diets and lifestyles, either because they’ve been diagnosed with celiac disease—a condition in which eating foods containing gluten harms the body—or because they experience negative reactions from gluten and choose to avoid it.
Chase away winter chills with a bowl of homemade chili or soup and these Gluten-Free Cornbread Mini Muffins. Melt-in-your-mouth moist with just the right amount of crumble, they’re quick to make and healthier than the traditional version—made with flax instead of eggs, coconut oil spread in place of butter and your choice of dairy or non-dairy milk.

With the holidays behind us and long winter months ahead, many of us are looking forward to a winter vacation getaway. These days, hotels, resorts and high tourist areas are taking steps to provide greater gluten-free options than even just a few years ago, making vacations easier to plan and certainly more enjoyable.
One of the best ways people can improve their diets is to eliminate foods that generate unpleasant reactions in their bodies. The media’s increased coverage of gluten sensitivity and intolerance (symptoms include bloating, abdominal discomfort and even joint pain) has prompted many individuals to go gluten free, even though they’re not medically allergic to the substance.
Comfort food doesn’t have to be unhealthy. Instead of reaching for a calorie-dense snack, try a bowl of this delicious veggie-packed soup, courtesy of Chef Oonagh Williams.
