Gluten Free Recipe: Vegetarian Potato Chili

Potato Chili

We’ve whipped up a gluten free recipe that’s stick-to-your-ribs good!

Celiac disease affects one out of every 141 Americans. It’s different from a gluten allergy or intolerance. Celiac disease is actually a small intestine disorder that causes sufferers to be hypersensitive to gluten. For someone dealing with celiac disease, eating food with gluten can cause serious symptoms, like digestive problems, anemia, bone density loss, and numbness in the extremities.

Gluten can hide in unexpected places. People suffering from celiac disease need to avoid bread, pasta, and other obvious gluten-packed foods, but you also find gluten in surprising places like beer, malt vinegar, soy sauce, and even some salad dressings.

The good news is that there are lots of healthy, gluten free foods and gluten free recipe ideas out there!

You might also be surprised to learn that potatoes are a naturally gluten free food, which makes them a perfect addition to a healthy, gluten-free diet. They’re also naturally fat and cholesterol free, so you can eat those potatoes without an ounce of guilt!
