Gluten-free cooking can be incredibly diverse, delicious and easy to throw together, not to mention an easy way to lighten up your diet. Keep an open mind in the kitchen and you'll be surprised how many great meals you can make without wheat. Consider substituting pasta with nutritious grains like quinoa and buckwheat. The dessert repertoire does not have to suffer either – keep it cool and fresh with seasonal fruit and popsicles and you won't miss a thing.
