Gluten-free diets have become a very popular trend in recent years; some even consider it a fad. However, there are health benefits to a gluten-free diet.

Some of those benefits include improving cholesterol levels, promoting digestive health and increasing energy levels, if you have gluten intolerance. On a gluten-free diet, you would likely eat more fruits and vegetables, just because they are several food sources that are non-starchy, and almost completely gluten-free.

That does not mean you have to give up all those tasty items you enjoyed before. For example, try these delicious gluten-free turtle brownies. Even if you are not on a gluten-free diet, you will love them.
