Gluten and eczema - why it’s good to be gluten free17 October 2018
Gluten and eczema can go hand in hand. Since looking at the way what I eat and drink can affect my skin, I decided to go gluten free. As with all things, while this worked for me it doesn’t mean it will work for everyone, but it’s certainly worth trying.
Gluten and eczema links
Gluten is a group of proteins found in products like wheat, barley and rye. It can be difficult to digest, causing bloating and other digestive problems. And there have been some links found between eczema and gluten intolerance or allergies. So it could certainly be worth trying to eliminate gluten from your diet for a while and see whether it makes a difference to your skin. The benefits of gluten-free eating have been very clear to me.
Lots of supermarkets now have ‘free from’ aisles, where you can find products like gluten-free bread. There are plenty of tasty gluten-free grains around too, like rice, buckwheat and quinoa, so it really isn’t too difficult to still enjoy delicious food that’s gluten free.
My favourite gluten-free products
There are some brilliant breakfast items out there, such as Erbology Gluten Free Tigernut Granola, Nutribrex, Nature’s Path Rice Cereal, Sprouted Oats by Rude Health, and Primrose’s Kitchen and Cacao Granola.
For lunch, my favourite brand is Amy’s Kitchen, who do a delicious range of gluten-free products like burritos, chilli, lasagne and soup.
And for some delicious treats such as my bounty bar and vegan cheesecake recipes, head over to my YouTube channel!
I have honestly found going gluten free pretty easy, and these days there are so many more options to choose from that if it works for you then there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy it too.
Lots of love, Camille xx
