7 Easy Low Carb Gluten Free Recipes

November 24, 2014

One of the most popular phrases circling around the dieting world today is ‘gluten-free’, and while most people know that going on a gluten-free diet can have health benefits, not everyone knows whether or not they should give it a try.

Gluten-free diets can work extremely well with the Atkins diet. Since gluten is found in wheat, rye and barley, which are all high in carbs, the Atkins 20® list of approved low carb foods for Atkins 20® contain significantly less gluten than other standard diets.

Gluten-free diets are also important for people with gluten sensitivity, because for them, gluten causes the immune system to damage the lining of the small intestine resulting in gas, bloating and indigestion.
