    gluten free?

    Can someone give me some feedback on gluten free products such as pasta, tortillas, pizza crusts, etc? Are these Primal or not?

    Most Primal folk avoid all grains. I personally only eat rice, a mix of brown basmati & wild rice in 50g serves, & only about once every 2-3 weeks. I do occasionally indulge in seaweed rice crackers but am trying to cut them out.

    Not necessary. Avoid them.
    if you're desperate for a sandwich, go for Pure Wraps or lettuce. Pasta & Stir Fry have other options, too, like spaghetti squash, angel hair coleslaw, and broccoli slaw.

    There are some primal substitutes for those things.. they usually involve nut flours..and aren't really that healthy for you, they are really meant to be treats not staples.

    Once you learn to cook and eat real food, you will not find it necessary to eat those old foods. This comes with time and experience. There are loads of delicious primal meals out there.

    I use pasta made from rice about once a month. It's pretty good but I would never eat it on a regular basis. My husband has to eat gluten-free but is not primal, and the only gluten-free product he will eat is the frozen pizza crusts made from rice and that's only because he really wants pizza. Substitutes are usually weird tasting and unnecessary. I think it's easier to live without them.

    Primal eating focuses on low toxin eating - generally this means avoidance of all grains. Many of the wheat-free substitute foods have bad oils, chemicals, and highly processed grains in them making them not a good choice for regular consumption.

    Focus on eating foods without an ingredient list. Lots of meats, fats, veggies, and fruits.

    Pasta, tortillas, pizza, and bread are processed foods which often contains gluten. Hence it is not the primal way of eating. Even if there are some that are gluten free, they are still high in carbs. People with celiac disease should definitely stay off gluten. However, many people who do not have clinical celiac will may still have some limited amount of gluten sensitivity without knowing it.

    There are gluten-free substitutes for absolutely everything. I actually enjoy most of gf-made foods. However, since being primal, I do not eat any. The foods usually aren't primal.
