Featuring our friend and columnist Shelley Case:

Quote:
Though the North American diet emphasizes gluten-based foods, celiacs shouldn’t obsess over finding substitutes for those grains and flours, says Shelley Case, a Regina-based dietician and member of the professional advisory board of the Canadian Celiac Association.

I agree with this article. I'm a celiac, and I rarely use substitute flours. I focus on eating brown rice and rice noodles in order to get my carbs. It was very difficult for me to change my diet, but once I did, I was surprised by how much better I felt. I actually didn't need to eat sandwiches and waffles. It's interesting for me to see how changing my diet changed my life. It was very liberating to me to discover that I didn't miss the food that I had such a difficult time giving up.

I was one of the people obsessed with finding a GF flour substitute. But then I realized that we rarely eat that way anyway and I can always buy gf baked goods and mixes if I need something. The thing I like about this article is that she mentions substitutes for the things you are missing when you aren't eating gluten (eg, b vitamins).
