Avoiding Too Many Processed gluten-free Foods

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know that I'm not supposed to overload on the processed gluten-free foods, but which of them are the healthiest? Last night I had some brown rice & flax-seed pasta for dinner, I thought that was pretty healthy, but does the pasta also count as one of the "processed" foods to eat sparingly? I want to be healthy, but I also want to eat the widest range of foods possible.

What did you put on the pasta? Did you look at the ingredients on the pasta box? How many? Can you pronounce each and every name on the pasta box? In my book there are no additives in pasta. It's usually a flour and water. I don't really consider it a "processed" food. I would question what it was you put on it. Smile. The Rastas have it right with their Ital way of eating. You can make your own pasta, it's not that hard but it takes some time. Better to use that time to get outside and go for a walk. Good for you for at least thinking of eating healthy!

The boxes of crackers and such, now that's processed usually. And white. Most all of it is white rice. I like Mary's Gone Cracker's, with brown rice, whole quinoa, flax seeds, sesame seeds, amaranth, millet and chia seeds. The best as long as you have good teeth. Anything Mary makes is good and good for you. gluten-free is brand new, we are the cusp of a really exciting time, no?!

Anything you find in a store, you can usually make yourself. This year I learned how to make sausage and cheese. Too much fun and on so easy. I did the sausage in parchment paper, so good. You get to control every single thing you put in it. If people knew how easy it is to make cheese, my friends love to come for lunch.

Yes! I'm really enjoying trying all these new foods actually! Thank you for the detailed answer about different foods. I have heard a lot of good things about Mary's Gone Crackers and I'll have to try those.

I did try to choose my pasta & sauce pretty carefully, all natural ingredients (I was doing that even before gluten free), the pasta ingredients were just rice flour & flax-seed. I really loved the rice pasta--better than wheat actually! It had a more complex and rich flavor I thought. I've been pleasantly surprised, so far I've really liked all of the gluten free foods I've tried.
