Delicious & Gluten Free Food Recipes

Gluten-free diets were originally designed to combat coeliac disease, a serious autoimmune disorder that effects the intestinal tract. Coeliac disease affects more people in Ireland than you might think in Ireland and can be reversed by removing gluten out of the diet. Most people assume that those who can’t eat foods without gluten in it are missing out and are forced to eat food that lacks taste and excitement. This is not the case, as these gluten free recipes clearly show. They are full of flavour and easy to prepare.
