Today I’m going to talk about how to go gluten-free. I believe it is so important to go gluten-free because gluten is a protein that is very difficult for most people to digest. Today, 1 out of every 133 people have celiacs disease and cannot tolerate gluten at all and 1 out of every 7 people are severely gluten intolerant and notice an outward reaction.
Symptoms of Gluten Intolerance:
-Lack of energy
Benefits of Going Gluten-Free:
-Improved thyroid function
Tips for Going Gluten-Free
1. Breakfast: Replace cereal, bread, and gluten products with a berry smoothie

2. Pure Coconut Wraps: Try a breakfast burrito or chicken salad lunch wrap with raw coconut wraps in place of wheat wraps. Coconut full of healthy fats to promote a healthy weight.
3. Nuts and seeds: Consume flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds for a healthy breakfast.
