I sure wish these nutrition experts and MD's who comment on a Celiac diet would make two things clear. 1) the SAD would be low in most of those things the gluten-free SAD is low in if glutenous products weren't fortified. 2) a whole foods gluten-free diet is not unhealthy, and is (generally) healthier than the SAD.

I know I'm generalizing but I am so tired of hearing how what I eat is unhealthy! Geez, I just ate a dinner of spinach/egg/onion/strawberry salad, broccoli, and grilled chicken breast! Yeah, that's unhealthy. And breakfast was an egg with refried beans, avocado, and cheese with cantaloupe.

We won't talk about lunch because that chocolate pie kind of snuck in there - which was, btw, the only dessert I've made (and aside from a small scoop of gelato a few times, eaten) in 2 months!
