A gluten-free diet has gained popularity among people without gluten-related medical conditions according to the Mayo Clinic. The claimed benefits of the diet are improved health, weight loss, and increased energy.

 

According to the Food and Drug Administration, food that is labeled gluten-free must have fewer than 20 parts per million of gluten.

 

Some people have a lesser condition called non-celiac gluten sensitivity and may feel better on a gluten-free diet.

According to the Mayo Clinic, a well-planned vegetarian diet may reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. Choose a variety of healthy plant-based foods like whole fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains. Nuts and legumes – such as lentils, beans, and peanuts – are considered healthy options.

Please note, some favorite VEGAN snacks, which may be better identified as treats, often have more sodium or sugar but are plant based and thus fit the Vegan lifestyle of no animal products such as meat, eggs, or dairy products…Oreos anyone? Yes Oreos are Vegan, but definitely fit in the treat category! -WebMD
