Although I think you need to know these 5 things when you go gluten free, it will take some time for you to fully understand all of them. This is a listing that you might want to re-read at different parts of your gluten-free journey and see “anew,” so to speak. It might not all make sense until you’ve been gluten free for quite some time, but I think it will be helpful to consider these 5 Things and keep them in the back of your head as you face different challenges along the way.
This list is not an all-inclusive one at all. It’s simply what’s been on my mind when helping folks make the transition to gluten-free living and seeing them well into their journeys. So I’d love it if after reading my 5 Things that you’d add your own “things you need to know when you go gluten free” along these same lines in comments or give your thoughts on the five that I’ve shared.
