Lately there has been the new trend of going gluten free. Now some of you don’t know what gluten is in the first place. Gluten is a substance found in wheat that is responsible for elasticizing the texture. So by going “gluten free”, you are essentially taking out gluten of your daily diet. It’s supposed to be a game changer.
Since it’s so popular, I decided to do my own experiment on this. I going gluten free for four days and here are the results. Since I have a busy schedule, I often meal prep on Sundays, in order to save myself some time in the kitchen when I know I am going to have a big week ahead of me. This was one of my weeks. With the challenge of going gluten free in mind while going grocery shopping, I decided to buy my first ever “zoodle” maker. I also bought the staple of veggies and fruits but instead of buying my go to pasta, I just added more zucchini to the cart. When I got home, I decided to break open the zoodle maker and tackle meal prepping. I found that the cooking time for zoodles is very quick. Three to five minutes tops. This just made meal prepping a whole lot easier. Zoodles also go with everything. You can make a light sauce with them, or you can pair it with a creamy vodka sauce like I did!
Fast track a couple days and I kid you not, I felt different. I know I only went gluten free for a couple of days but the main thing I noticed was the fact that I was less sluggish and more alert. I urge everyone to try this experiment out yourselves and see how it benefits your body. Although I intended this to be a short experiment, I think that I am going to continue going gluten free for a couple weeks or so.
