Today is National Celiac Awareness Day. According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, more than 2 million (or 1 in 133) people in the United States have celiac disease. Also known as celiac sprue, celiac disease is characterized by an abnormal immune response to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and, to a lesser extent, oats.
While there is no cure for celiac disease, those who have been diagnosed can live normal, healthy lives if they follow a gluten-free diet and lifestyle. There are many foods that are naturally gluten free, but increased awareness of the disease has also led to the development of many prepared gluten-free food products.
Whether you’ve been diagnosed with celiac disease or simply prefer to eat gluten-free foods, this recipe for Gluten-Free Swiss Chard Sushi is a great main dish that’s also vegetarian friendly, and absolutely delicious!
