Let’s debunk a myth about Gluten free – apart from the obvious benefit of getting rid of gluten, there’s virtually no nutritional benefit to most gluten free baked goods. In fact, by taking out gluten (protein) and replacing it with more starchy carbs (rice flour, sugar, etc), thereby dramatically increasing carbs at the expense of protein, most gluten-free products actually contribute to all kinds of nutritional and health issues that we all want to avoid. Think.Eat.Live takes a Positive Nutrition approach – adding in good stuff that’s actively good for you! Each serving provides a perfect balance of protein, fiber, fat and carbs to keep you feeling satisfied and energetic longer, without the hunger ‘rebound’ that comes from eating most carb-heavy baked goods. Compare Think.Eat.Live to a typical gluten-free product and you’ll see what we mean:

Next time you pick up a gluten free packaged good, look carefully at the nutrition label. Aside from removing gluten, does the product have any nutritional benefits or is it full of empty carbohydrates?
