15 Foods You Miss When You’re Gluten-Free—and What to Eat Instead

15 Foods You Miss When You're Gluten-Free—and What to Eat Instead. (When we had to leave baguettes behind? It was a tearful goodbye.) It doesn't really matter if you've been gluten-free for years or are just taking the plunge now—here are 15 foods you will probably miss and the best gluten-free replacements we've found. If you're craving flour tortillas, swapping in corn tortillas is definitely a no-brainer.

Though there are plenty of gluten-free cracker options in grocery stores these days, you can't beat the simplicity of a rice cake. Whether you need bread crumbs in a recipe or just as a topping, gluten-free oats are a great substitute if you send them through a food processor first. It'll also add a healthy dose of protein to your morning, and we're always good with that. Chopped nuts are a great way to emulate the consistency of traditional granola without risking gluten contamination.
