Gluten free Recipes
If you are like most people I have spoken with in the last few weeks, eating balanced meals that are healthy has been tricky. There are so many reasons for this - less access to grocery stores and fresh foods, the sheer stress of shopping and the emotional eating that can occur from the stress and sadness of all the changes to our lifestyle. Even just being home all day, everyday, where the kitchen is central to the home, it's easy and understandable as to why many are eating more frequently than we need to.
When stress levels are high, blood sugar changes occur, whereas the body is needing to provide glucose to support the stress response. Sugar cravings can increase and with chronic stress, weight changes then happen, specifically around the midsection.
For many, the past few weeks have been one of the most stressful experiences that they have gone through. Supporting your stress response is of vital importance, not only for mental health but also for maintaining the daily habits that keep us grounded and supported in ourselves.
Even though it may not seem to be connected, eating balanced meals and choosing healthy food options supports our stress response. Avoiding known food sensitivities is also helpful to ensure the body has no additional stress responses occurring.
So, I wanted to share some recipes/resources to hopefully inspire and surprise you with how easy and tasty they are. They are all Gluten-free and some are also Grain-Free , supporting a variety of dietary plans in this time. I have no affiliation with any of these sites, just happy to have found recipes that are easy to make and that support gluten-free and grain-free eating.
See what you think and I hope these recipe ideas taste great for you and support all the changes going on in your world.
