What Common Meals Are Gluten-Free?

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, which means that individuals with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity must avoid foods containing these grains. However, creating gluten-free meals doesn’t mean sacrificing taste or variety. Many delicious and wholesome meals can be made without gluten.
