We created the Health Hacks on a Budget video course series to make it as easy as possible for everyone to save time and money while living a healthy life. In this series, we share simple recipes, easy tips, and educational information to help you and your family thrive.

It seems like no matter where you look, from restaurants, to grocery stores, to coffee shops, gluten-free labels are popping up everywhere! But what exactly does it mean to go gluten-free—and is it actually healthier?

Our host Sara Snow explains all you need to know about what gluten is and where this wheat protein is lurking in the foods we eat every day. Plus, she lays out who should be eating a gluten-free diet—and who can skip it.

Sara also lays out her favorite gluten-free grains that anyone can include in their diet, like:

  • Amaranth
  • Millet
  • Gluten-free oats
  • Rice
  • Quinoa

Still not sure if the gluten-free diet is right for you? Watch the video to figure out if you need to try it. And we finally answer the question that everyone's asking: Is it healthier to eat gluten-free?

This is one video in a series that's free for all Thrive Gives recipients. See the rest of the videos here. Applying for a free membership through our Giving program is easy—just click here.
