I know a lot of people who eat “gluten free” now. Some people do it for medical reasons. Some do it because they have an intolerance. Some do it because they BELIEVE or THINK they have an intolerance. And some do it because it’s the “thing” to do.

Me?

I eat that way when I can, not because I have to or want to. But more because it’s pretty easy to do and to go without gluten works for us. I do, however, notice that I don’t feel as bloated when we are conscious of gluten so I do feel better. 🙂 And for that reason I wanted to give you guys a roundup of some of my favorite …. and in my humble opinion 40 of the BEST Light & Easy Gluten Free Recipes out there!
