Gluten-free: it’s a hot button phrase that’s popping up everywhere these days.
Some may think it’s the newest fad diet but it’s anything but. Eating gluten-free (GF) is a necessity for those diagnosed with a gluten allergy or sensitivity.
Gluten is a protein that occurs naturally in wheat, rye, barley or any crossbreeds of these grains. Gluten causes an adverse effect on the body to those with a gluten allergy or sensitivity. Celiac disease is the most extreme of the gluten allergies.
With those unable to consume gluten, going out to eat can be a headache. Without having the luxury to choose from pasta, breadsticks or pizza to name a few, there isn’t much left on the menu to pick from other than a tantalizing house salad, but be sure to hold the croutons!
We have found six local Fargo-Moorhead establishments who offer gluten free options for their customers with a gluten allergy– making going out to eat less stressful and fun again!
