Focusing on Healthy, Gluten-Free Foods for My Family

In late 2012, Christina started to experiment with strict gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free eating along with exercising 6 days a week for 6 months. You can read about how it transformed her body in her 6-Month Nutrition and Fitness Experiment. She’s done two experiments since then with very positive results. You can read about Christina’s experiences (and find more gluten-free recipes) on Fit Body Full Life.

Because of Christina, Terry and I started eating gluten free at home. We often eat foods with gluten when we eat out, but I’ve converted all my recipes to gluten-free versions. I bake with brown rice flour a lot. Following is my latest adaptation of a peanut butter muffin recipe I’ve used for a number of years.

I do use regular oat bran in the muffins, which might have a slight amount of gluten. You can find certified gluten-free oat bran.
