If you or someone in your family has been diagnosed as being gluten intolerant by a physician, you may be feeling a bit helpless in the recipe department, because so many common products do contain gluten. Celiac.com's gluten-free recipes is a good starting point for finding ways to still enjoy grains in your meals. Note that people often have more than one food intolerance or food sensitivity, so talk to your health care professionals as you choose foods and recipes to deal with gluten-free eating.
