Can I eat a Gluten Free Mediterranean Diet?

Yes!  The Mediterranean Diet isn’t just pasta and bread.  There is so much amazing food in the Mediterranean  that is naturally gluten free.  Did you know, for example, that many versions of traditional Italian eggplant parmesan have no bread crumbs in it?   And did you know that falafel, one of the most enjoyed foods in the Middle East, is usually gluten free?  The truth is that the majority of recipes eaten in the Mediterranean are gluten free.  Below are 21 of our absolute favorite recipes from the gluten free Mediterranean Diet.

Enjoy!
