How to Eat Gluten-Free Whole Nutrition with Debra Klein Health Coach
Today, my guest is a health coach and food blogger who dedicated her life to creating nourishing food that tastes incredible. She inspires healthy living through lifestyle choices with easy plant-based recipes. Debra has many gluten-free recipes on her blog, and she’s always looking for more folks who want to create their own health journey and promote their own well being by making informed food and lifestyle choices.
Processed Food Vs. Unprocessed Foods
When we can eat foods that are closer to nature, then our body recognizes these foods and knows what to do with them,” says Debra. When you buy pre-packaged foods, even though you are purchasing gluten-free, it may not be enough to “achieve vibrant health.” Just because your food is gluten-free doesn’t make you healthy.
She explains that our bodies get confused when we eat processed foods and can send out an auto-immune response. Having sensitivities, allergies, or auto-immune issues is your body’s way of saying that it doesn’t agree with the food choices that it’s been given.
Using Plant-Based Whole Foods
“Say you’re making lasagna, you can use your vegetable peeler to make zucchini noodles to layer your lasagna, so you don’t have to resort to using processed gluten-free pasta.” She says to embrace the large varieties of whole foods available and use them in creative ways to make different dishes.
Eating Gluten-Free Doesn’t Have to Be Costly
Instead of eating packaged and processed gluten-free foods, Debra suggests eating whole foods for better nutrition and significant food savings for your wallet. “Whether you’re eating vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free, it’s the packaged and processed food that is the pricier option.”
Focus on Foods You Can Eat
Being gluten-free, it’s easy for us to focus on and be sad about what we can’t eat, especially when watching others freely eat whatever foods they want without hesitation. Instead of focusing on what we can’t eat, focus on what you can eat! “When you focus on what IS available to you as opposed to highlighting what’s not available to you, it’s the flip side. This mindset helps you embrace all that’s there. When you focus on what’s not available, it puts you in a mindset that’s less healthy.”
