Are We All Going Gluten-Free?

The PhD of feeding your family
It used to be that when it came to meal planning, parents considered questions like what’s in the pantry? What will my kids like and what do I have time to make? Perhaps what’s going bad in the produce drawer factored in? Then, along the way, peanut allergies and gluten sensitivities entered the picture. Next, nitrates in sandwich meat, antibiotics in beef, pesticides on produce and questions around farm fresh, organic and local entered our decision matrix. And all the while, the question of ‘does it taste good?’ is omnipresent.

Number of adults avoiding gluten hits new high
Feeding your family in a healthy and thoughtful way has increasingly become associated with a gluten-free diet and made it one of the top diet trends in the U.S. According to a recent study by NPD, Gluten-free diet appeals to 30% of adults in the U.S. On Foodily, gluten-free has been a top search category for over 2 years. Gluten-free far eclipses all other exclusion searches including no meat, no dairy and no sugar.

An amazing 73% of recipe interactions on Foodily are health related – find, share, fave – it’s all happening on gluten-free, low-fat and low-carb recipes, with gluten-free leading the pack.
