What should I eat if I have celiac disease?

Obviously, you cannot eat any food that contains gluten. That is, all flours and foods made with wheat should be avoided: white flour, white wheat, spelled, wheat germ, wheat bran.

Make sure to always read food ingredients carefully to ensure that what you want to eat is gluten-free. Also, discuss choosing gluten-free foods with a professional nutritionist or health professional who specializes in celiac disease. 

You cannot eat any food that contains gluten

Foods such as meat, fish, fruits, vegetables, rice and potatoes, without additives or seasonings, do not contain gluten and are part of a well-balanced diet.

You can eat gluten-free bread, pasta, and other foods that are now easier to find in stores, restaurants, and specialty food companies. You can also eat potato, rice, soy, amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, or bean flour instead of wheat flour.

In the particular case of oats, although there is some controversy about its safety, in recent years there are indications that most people with celiac disease can eat moderate amounts of oats.

As long as, yes, they do not come in direct contact with gluten from wheat during processing.

However, we advise you to consult your doctor about whether or not it would be appropriate to include small amounts of oats in your diet.

Celiac also can eat extra virgin olive oil

In addition, we must not forget healthy oils such as extra virgin olive oil, extremely rich in healthy fats and antioxidants. You can also go for sunflower or corn oil. Dairy is also safe.
