Many people who are going gluten-free often have questions about how their new diet can fit in with certain lifestyle choices they make. One such choice is to focus on eating seasonal foods, especially fruits and vegetables. We’ve put together this handy list of gluten-free foods that are in season during the spring season for you to enjoy:
– Vegetables: right now it’s all about green vegetables like artichokes, broccoli, collards, beets, spinach, lettuce and green beans. These tasty and healthy foods should form an important part of your gluten-free diet in spring.
– Fruits: While your choice of seasonal fruit may not be as extensive as in the summer months, you can focus on different kinds of melon, rhubarb, strawberries, apricots and citrus fruit for healthy additions to your meals.
-Non-gluten Grains: Rice, Buckwheat, and Quinoa are good throughout any season and should supplement your dishes during spring.
Seasonal eating in combination with gluten-free living can seem limited, but combining the available ingredients into creative gluten-free recipes will help you plan amazing meals and snacks so that you are never bored with your food.
