It’s really not as difficult as it sounds, it’s just cooking at home or choosing restaurant items carefully. If you have never eaten a gluten-free meal consciously, then you certainly have subconsciously. Generally, if you have had a meal without pasta, bread or pizza crust, then you’ve probably had a fairly gluten-free meal. You might have had gluten in a marinade or sauce, but that’s a different issue. Choosing to eat...
