I haven’t eaten gluten since 2010. I also do a lot of business with gluten-free bakeries and food manufacturers. So you can trust me when I tell you that ‘gluten-free’ does not mean ‘healthy’.
Gluten-free means that the product does not contain any wheat, barley, or rye. The product may, or may not, be good for you.
Gluten-free cookies are still cookies. I love a good gluten-free cookie.
Lettuce is gluten-free.
Which would you feel worse after; eating a huge bowl of lettuce, or gluten-free cookies?
Healthy means healthy. The way to figure that out is, read the ingredients, and decide how much you should have.
A cookie is a good thing. I’m not anti-dessert.
Just don’t go filling up your shopping cart with everything that’s labeled ‘gluten-free’, without reading the ingredients. Some of that stuff is gluten-free junk.
