Gluten-free foods do not have to be boring, bland or uncreative. On the contrary, a variety of gluten-free recipes combine healthy whole grains with colorful flavors for a wide range of delicious, satisfying dishes. Many of these gluten-free grains also contain higher protein levels than their glutinous counterparts (wheat, barley and rye). The recipes below, from Eating Well magazine, use a variety of whole grains that are free of gluten, including polenta (made from corn), rice, quinoa and millet. Hearty and warming for the coming winter season, even people with gluten intolerances will enjoy these delicious dinner ideas.

Monica's comments while showing concern simply don't apply to all Celiac diagnosis. I was diagnosed 2 years ago at age 43 and I can eat many milk products without problems. I am careful though because even as a child too much milk wasn't a good thing for me. I can eat soy as well but never really liked the texture and tend to use it as flour when called for. As for my gut needing to recover, that wasn't a very long process for me as I wasn't eating a lot of processed foods at the time, I threw away all wheat containing items ( donated to local food pantry)and started baking without wheat. I feel that a lot of the problems with diet are mainly the results of creating GMO strains of our food supply. Chemical companies are doing this because so many grains and birds(thin eggshells) aren't surviving the newest pesticides they're cranking out.We're going to see alot more cases of food related intolerance before people wake up and to me, that's a true tradgedy.

Not everyone will have to apply your rules on GF restrictions Monica. We are GF, and have been for 5 years. My baby almost died from celiac spru, yet when we found out we gave him raw milk to help him heal and did not have to avoid everything. MEN has no responsibility to us to provide an information session on GF recipes or other allergies/sensitivities. That is our responsibility if we have problems, not others. I do not feel entitled to anything, and think it's great that they made the effort to help some of us who have to live a little different than the usual whole wheat that they use in so many recipes. Thank you Mother, for your articles this week. It is appreciated, and I plan to share with all my friends!
