I Would Like To Know....

Entry posted by %s - 517 views

... why people think that just because it is Gluten free it is healthy? It still has fat, sugar, sodium and other junk. I mean ultimately going gluten free means dropping everything else. Like for instance, dyes that food companies add to foods like RED 40 and other ones. Dyes make me sick. I try to stay away from them as much as possible. It stinks too because I LOVE fruit punch gatorade, powerade, kool-aid, crystal light... but i know if I drink that stuff, I will be sick.

I will write more later since I am at work and I have to get ready to go.

I agree that gluten free isn't everything and that one should use caution about dyes when they eat. It might seem like gluten is everything on the forum, but the focus is celiac, so that would be natural. You might want to reask your question on the forum in diet section. I am on a natural-mostly organic scratch cooking diet and have been for years. This would avoid beverages that are thicker than water also.
