Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or told by your doctor that you should not eat products containing gluten? For many, this is a hard diagnosis to hear because changing their diet so drastically may seem to deprive them of flavorful foods. The new dietary restrictions may seem confusing and hard to follow.

Topics covered include learning how to decipher gluten-free labels, what to look for and avoid when shopping for gluten-free foods and how to make gluten-free meals taste good. Practical tips on staying gluten-free when you are eating out and how to recognize good carbs and bad carbs.
