Many of the things we eat every day affect our overall health. Gluten, for example, is one of those things. Many people have a gluten intolerance or allergy. We were brought up thinking it was a vital part of the “food pyramid.” Now, we’ve learned that is can affect our bodies adversely. Gluten allergy and intolerance symptoms include hives, stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, headaches, and more. Check with your doctor if you think you need to be tested for gluten or other food-related allergies. At NoHo Senior Arts Colony, we want you to be happy and healthier. Even if you aren’t allergic to gluten, a gluten-free lifestyle has definite perks which include less bloating, more energy (more pep in your step), less joint pain, better weight, and the list goes on and on. The good news is that there are many delicious gluten substitutes and gluten-free recipes to augment your food choices and satisfy your belly. And more and more restaurants are offering gluten-free cuisine, and pretty much all grocery stores have gluten-free items.
