Eating grain-free / gluten free means eliminating any grains such as corn, wheat, oats, and rice from your diet. This way of eating originally started to grow popular as Paleo/Keto became more well-known and grains were linked to digestive inflammation issues. People have reported that after changing to a grain-free lifestyle they noticed better overall health including improved digestion and reduction in autoimmune symptoms.
Typical gluten-free breads usually contain grains such as rice, flour, and oats. Is this for everyone? No, but for me it was a must. After doing food sensitivity testing, I realized my body is sensitive to most grains. This pushed me in the direction to experiment with some incredible grain free flours. Cassava, Tiger Nut, Teff, and Buckwheat flours are my current baking staples! They are high in fiber, vitamins minerals and protein.
Traditional bagels are usually high in refined carbs, which may lead to a spike in blood sugar. Made from wheat, they are also loaded with gluten. This easy gluten, and grain free bagel is delicious, warm, or toasted. I made mine into minis so it was more of a side dish with an egg, veggies and fruit.
