While everyone seems to be ganging up on gluten these days, most athletes need not shelve their bread. A 2015 Australian study found that following a gluten-free diet provided no performance or digestive health benefits for nonceliac athletes.
But of course if you really can’t or don’t want to eat gluten, there are a lot of decent gluten free breads available. No one should have to give up hot, gooey grilled cheese. It’s a blissful way to get your recovery carbs and protein.
A cast-iron skillet is made for producing great grilled cheese, as the heavy metal turns out deliciously toasted bread—just another reason to add ye olde iron skillet to your kitchen arsenal.
- Replace apricot spread with slices of fresh peaches
- Use gluten-free bread
