Going gluten-free seems to be the most popular dietary choice these days. Close to 30% Americans have made this choice, so there must be something great about it. In the United States alone, close to 18 million people have some form of gluten intolerance, also known as non-celiac gluten sensitivity, while 1% of the population complain of celiac disease. These come with serious health complications, which is the reason the gluten-free diet is getting a lot of thumbs up.
Now, going gluten-free doesn’t mean you’d have to settle for tasteless food. If you love the tang of acid in your food, here are seven gluten-free recipes that incorporate the citrusy goodness of lemons.
