Gluten-Free Potato Love - Celiac Disease

Gluten-Free Potato Love

I have seen many articles out recently about potatoes being gluten-free.  Yep, they always have been.  In fact, they have been a staple of mine for most of my life, not just the last 5+ gluten-free years.  When I was a child I would order mashed potatoes at a restaurant instead of French fries.  What do you mean McDonald’s doesn’t serve mashed potatoes?!  As I grew up, I didn’t meet many potatoes I didn’t like and made them a regular part of my diet until the South Beach phase.  Potatoes got a bad rap there for several years due to the popularity of the low-carb diets like Atkins & South Beach.

Once I started the gluten-free diet, I knew I could always depend on a trusty baked potato or baked sweet potato.  Many restaurants serve baked potatoes and that would often be a safe, filling option for me in addition to a burger without a bun or a salad.

I received an email the other day about the US Potato Board creating a bunch of gluten-free recipes on Potato Goodness and hosting a Twitter party on Wednesday, May, 25, 2011.  Check out this awesome Potato Lasagna:

I’m reaching out to let you know that the US Potato Board has recently created a new gluten-free recipe collection on that includes more than 80 gluten-free recipes from several ethnic cuisines, many of which can be prepared in 30 minutes or less! One of the featured recipes is a new Quick & Healthy Gluten-Free Potato Lasagna – it’s true there’s no need to give up comfort food favorites like lasagna if you’re on a gluten-free diet.

According to a recent survey, only 19% of Americans rate potatoes as excellent for being gluten free but in fact, potatoes are 100% gluten-free!  Potatoes are a fresh, natural, affordable and convenient gluten-free option for those suffering from side effects associated to eating foods that contain gluten.
