Anti-Inflmatory Diet Gluten-free 2024

By Luci Fardo

This is a new year and the first week has already passed. I can't believe how fast time flies. I've been busy with work and had lots of new opportunities fall in my lap. One is that I am getting my certification as a nutritionist and as a gym instructor. I'm super excited about those things. I also wanted to focus more on the need for a healthy diet in 2024. This is something that is challenging for people who have to follow #gluten-free and #dairy free. I have decided to follow an anti-inflammatory diet in the coming year. I want to work on putting our recipes and content about this. I am following this diet myself personally.

We went to dinner with friends at #Outback and I was tempted to get the steak but went with the baked salmon instead. I was so happy to see that they have a gluten-free menu. You can order so many different things on the menu. They were so kind and helpful.

There are many reason in the coming year to try to use this diet. Here are some of the one's I would like to share with you. Here are some of the reasons to incorporate this into your lifestyle.

I have suffered from chronic inflammation and had suffered from bloating, no energy, and this caused me to suffer lupus flare-ups, head-aches, insomnia, and anxiety.

After my diagnosis with #mixed connective tissue disorder and other auto-immune diseases I started connecting the relation of what I eat to how I feel.

Learning how to reduce the chronic inflammation hasn't been easy. I went on vacation and then there were the holidays. I was consuming a lot of sugar and other unhealthy foods. I decided that after the holidays I would try the #anti-inflammatory diet. This will help alleviate a lot of flare-ups with. This isn't always easy though. Temptation is everywhere.

Sometimes our lives have to be shaken up with illness to help us to make changes that we might not normally decide to take. I want us to look at information about inflammation and what it means to our bodies. I also want to provide information about the #anti-inflammatory diet.

An #Anti-Inflammatory Diet: #Gluten-Free

Inflammation is a natural response of the body to injury or infection. However, when inflammation becomes chronic, it can lead to a host of health problems including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. One way to combat chronic inflammation is through an anti-inflammatory diet. In this article, we will focus on an anti-inflammatory diet that is gluten-free.

What is an Anti-Inflammatory Diet?

An anti-inflammatory diet is one that focuses on foods that help reduce inflammation in the body. This type of diet includes foods that are high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. It also limits foods that are known to cause inflammation, such as sugar, processed foods, and trans fats.

What is #Gluten?

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. It is what gives dough its elasticity and helps it rise. Gluten can cause problems for people with celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or wheat allergy. In these cases, the immune system reacts to gluten, leading to inflammation in the body.

How Does Gluten Cause Inflammation?

For people with #celiac disease, gluten triggers an immune response that damages the lining of the small intestine. This can lead to malabsorption of nutrients and a host of other health problems. For people with gluten sensitivity, gluten can cause inflammation in the gut, leading to symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. In some people they can also suddenly develop rashes all over their bodies and require steroids to clear it up.

An Anti-Inflammatory Gluten-Free Diet

If you have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or wheat allergy, it is important to follow a gluten-free diet. However, it is also important to follow an anti-inflammatory diet to help reduce inflammation in the body. Here are some tips for following an anti-inflammatory gluten-free diet:

1. Focus on whole foods: Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and lean proteins. These foods are high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats that help reduce inflammation.

2. Avoid processed foods: Processed foods are often high in sugar, trans fats, and other additives that can cause inflammation. Stick to whole foods as much as possible.

3. Choose gluten-free grains: There are many gluten-free grains available, such as quinoa, brown rice, and millet. These grains are high in fiber and nutrients and can help reduce inflammation.

4. Avoid gluten-free processed foods: Many gluten-free processed foods are high in sugar, refined grains, and other additives that can cause inflammation. Read labels carefully and choose whole foods as much as possible.

5. Use healthy fats: Healthy fats such as olive oil, avocado, and nuts can help reduce inflammation. Avoid trans fats and saturated fats, which can cause inflammation.

6. Limit sugar: Sugar is a major cause of inflammation in the body. Limit your intake of sugary foods and drinks.


Following an anti-inflammatory gluten-free diet can help reduce inflammation in the body and improve overall health. Focus on whole foods, avoid processed foods, choose gluten-free grains, use healthy fats, limit sugar, and consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian if you have any concerns or questions.

I plan on putting a full diet online and will also be willing to work with you to come up with a diet that works for you in the coming year. If you haven't tried this before after consulting a physician I urge you to give it a try. So far it has really helped me. I'm early into it.

I have made the decision to eliminate meat from my diet except for fish and a limited amount of chicken. You must be careful about chicken because some of the chicken we buy in the store has been given anti-biotics and that is not good for us in the long term in my opinion. I don't have study numbers about this. Feel free to do your own research on those statistics and studies.
