7 More on Eating Gluten-Free… According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, an estimated 3 million Americans suffer from side effects associated to eating foods that contain gluten. To make it easier, we created a new gluten-free recipe collection on our website, www.potatogoodness.com.National Foundation for Celiac Awareness The USPB partnered with Jen Cafferty, founder of the Gluten-Free Cooking Expo and President of Gluten-Free Life with Jen, to review the USPB’s database of potato recipes and to provide tips for eating gluten-free.Jen Cafferty “Potatoes are a great choice for people who otherwise have to cut carbs out of their diet,” says Jen Cafferty. “Potatoes are a gluten-free dieter’s dream. They are fresh, natural and versatile, plus you know you’re whole family will enjoy them.” Jen Cafferty’s Top Three Tips for Eating Gluten-Free 1.Stick to eating "real food." Avoid processed foods and learn how to prepare your own meals using fresh ingredients that are naturally gluten-free, like potatoes, which can serve as a substitute for foods that gluten- free eaters often crave, like pasta and bread. 2.Incorporate whole grains, like quinoa and nutrient-dense vegetables, like potatoes, spinach and broccoli, into your diet on a regular basis to ensure you are getting proper nutrients and maintaining a balanced diet. 3.Don’t automatically assume that foods like pizza and lasagna are off-limits. You can find gluten-free pizza dough options available in many supermarkets and it’s easy to make using gluten-free flour. And you won’t even miss the noodles in the USPB’s Gluten-Free Potato Lasagna recipe.
