Avoid Gluten Mistakes & Stay Healthy with Gluten-Free Crepes
Zucchini and coconut gluten-free crepes are extremely good for you. Although they might sound strange, they are tasty and healthy. To stay healthy there are some standards for keeping yourself gluten-free.
There’s one huge mistake people make when going gluten-free; they turn to gluten-free products.
When gluten-free products are manufactured (such as bread, crackers, wraps, and anything else that may contain wheat, rye, barley, malt, and some oats), they have to figure out a way to replace the gluten itself. It’s the gluten (a protein) that gives bread its addictive texture and flavor.
If you’ve ever tried a typical gluten-free product and found yourself checking to see if you accidentally ate the packaging instead, it’s not an easy thing to do. And most of these products that taste decent, aren’t made with ingredients that contain gluten, to begin with.
So in order to improve the flavor and texture, they start adding a host of horrible ingredients that are just as harmful to your overall health as gluten.
To begin with, the products are highly processed and the food industry replaces the flour with corn and tapioca starch or rice flour that your body converts to sugar at levels higher than it would a candy bar. On top of that, they use a huge amount of added sugar. The high starch and sugar content can completely throw off your gut flora and lead to fun things like SIBO.
Inflammatory oils are also a staple on the ingredient list in addition to xanthan gum which can trigger allergic reactions and bloat.
And even after all that, it STILL tastes like sugared cardboard.
So what’s a bread-starved, cracker-craving person to do?
Start making your own nutritious, delicious, and EASY alternatives to those toxic choices on the grocery store shelves. I’ve already posted some of my favorites, but there has been such high demand, plenty more will be coming.
This time it’s my basic gluten-free crepes. It’s hard to believe something this simple could be so delicious and versatile, but that’s what’s so great about this recipe.
If you prefer it stay slightly sweet for something more along the lines of my cannoli recipe (coming soon), it’s great as is. If you prefer a more savory flavor, try adding onion or garlic powder along with some Italian herbs, or go a more Middle Eastern route with cumin or fennel.
Make it your own, to best fit your meal plan and nutritional needs.
If you have difficulty finding organic coconut meat, one of my favorite online sources is Symbiosis, formerly Exotic Superfoods. You have to order a large quantity, but the cost savings is worth it if you have room in your freezer.
