  1. VN: Can gluten-free food be just as delicious as traditional foods?AK: Absolutely! With the variety of foods out there, such as Butler Soy Curls (which are great for replacing seitan) and hundreds of great recipes for gluten-free pie crusts, pizza doughs, breads, cakes, cookies, and more, you are really not missing out by being gluten-free. My entire family eats gluten-free 90 percent of the time and even though I’m the only one with an intolerance, they are all quite happy and well-fed. In fact, many of the vegan foods we enjoyed before my diagnosis were already gluten-free. There are also hundreds of great blogs that not only offer wonderful inspiration, but also solid tips, tricks, and recipes that work.
