Mom’s Meals Insights: Gluten-Free Doesn’t Have to Mean Taste-Free

May 24, 2013

A gluten-free diet, used to treat celiac disease, sounds simple in theory, but many find there is gluten in more foods than they realized, and that substituting gluten-free food often leads to a flavorless diet. Mom’s Meals has introduced a new gluten-free menu, balancing quality and taste.

Gluten-free diets sound relatively simple to understand; they are diets free of the protein ℠gluten,´ most commonly found in wheat, barley, and rye.

A gluten-free diet is used to treat celiac disease in which gluten causes inflammation to the small intestine, often leading to complications. While in theory it sounds simple to follow a gluten-free diet, many find there is gluten in more foods than they realized, and that substituting gluten-free food often leads to a flavorless diet.

For those on a gluten-free diet, Mom´s Meals, a company that prepares and delivers meals, has introduced a new menu, allowing those on a restricted diet to eat gluten-free without sacrificing taste and quality.

“It can be a challenge to change your diet to gluten-free because of the additional costs, the need to carefully check labels, and knowing there are many foods you simply have to do without,” said Rick Anderson, president of Mom´s Meals. “But that doesn´t mean it can´t taste good. We looked for a balance of flavor and health, and think we have found it with this new menu.”

Among the new options for breakfast are a Fruit Breakfast Pizza with apples, peaches, strawberries and string cheese; a Breakfast Skillet with turkey sausage, scrambled eggs, and seasoned potatoes with cheddar cheese; and Cinnamon Oatmeal with sliced peaches and granola.

For lunch or dinner, the Vegetable Ratatouille with baked chicken breast; the Chicken and Vegetable Pot Pie; and the Honey Lime Chicken with black beans, corn, brown rice, and salsa verde are among the favorites.

“The Honey Lime Chicken has found a permanent spot on my dinner rotation,” said one customer who has been struggling to find the right gluten-free meal choices for herself and her husband.
