What is a Gluten Free (GF) diet?
A Gluten-free (GF) diet doesn't include any foods containing gluten, which is naturally found in wheat and some other grains such as barley and rye. (Wheat is sometimes called durum, einkorn or spelt.)
Although gluten is naturally occurring in some foods, it is also added to some processed foods to improve texture as well as to bind and flavour foods so always check the label if you have celiac disease, wheat allergy, gluten-intolerance or gluten ataxia.
However, you don't have to miss out on your favorite Game Day appetizers as there are many foods that are naturally GF. These include all types of rice (from white to brown), unprocessed beans, seeds, legumes, nuts, corn, rice, potato, bean flours and millet.
Note: Possible alternatives to wheat would be quinoa, buckwheat or rice flour. For more naturally gluten free foods, scroll down.
Tip: Remember to check the label as some naturally gluten free foods are processed along with other foods containing gluten, or have gluten added to them.
Salted Egg Popcorn
Corn is naturally gluten-free so most homemade popcorns are great for those with celiac-disease!
If you think you need fancy equipment to make your own popcorn, think again! Here is an easy guide to making popcorn on the stove.
If you don't want to make or buy nachos or tortilla chips, these delicious dips go really well with crudites (vegetable sticks such as carrots and cucumbers) as well as potato fries and breadsticks (made with GF flour, of course)!
Note: If you're not a fan of spice, try 1 of these other 19 nacho and dip GF Super Bowl appetisers.
Note: Try these fried Indian snacks (chaat) with some flavorful samosa dipping sauces.
Note: It can be hard to make gluten free Chinese food, as soya sauce is so widespread in the cuisine, but this recipe has already worked out a GF soya sauce substitute you can use (usually tamari or coconut aminos).
