At this year's Oscars ceremony, host Ellen DeGeneres delighted guests by sharing out not just pizza, but gluten-free pizza."No worries on the pizza peeps!" tweeted pregnant Scandal actress Kerry Washington during the Academy Awards. "I'm gluten-free! LOL #SnacksInMyPurse #Oscars" "Yes! @TheEllenShow =D There IS gluten-free pizza!!!! #OSCARS #greenroom."Kerry isn't the only one going gluten-free. Victoria Beckham and Rachel Weisz are known to follow the diet. Lady Gaga once went gluten-free to lose a few pounds and Miley Cyrus has a gluten and lactose allergy and has encouraged everyone to try it.
"Everyone should try no gluten for a week. The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing" tweeted theWrecking Ball
