Gluten-Free Protein Bars and Gluten-Free Shakes

Whether it's personal choice or related to gluten sensitivity, going gluten free doesn't have to impact athletic performance. Vitacost.com stocks a wide selection of gluten-free products for sports nutrition, whether you're looking for gluten-free protein powder, snack foods, vitamins or supplements.

It's important to know where the gluten is coming from-because this protein in wheat, rye and barley that gives bread dough its resiliency can also cause numerous problems for gluten-sensitive people. No, this isn't another low-carb lecture, but a look at where you get those carbs.

Following exercise, you need protein to fuel muscle growth but also carbohydrates to give the body energy to recover. While many athletes find this energy through a mix of simple and complex carbs, for the gluten sensitive there are a range of choices to get energy from complex carbs; who doesn't enjoy a good baked potato jacked up with a little butter and parmesan cheese? However, gluten-free protein shakes are always a tasty, time-saving option until you can get back to the kitchen.

So keep some gluten-free bars on-hand, watch food labels for gluten-containing ingredients, and remember that complex carbs such as rice, potatoes, lentils, beans, quinoa, millet and tapioca all offer fuel to keep you performing.
