2012 was the year of the marathon. 2013 was the year of uncertainty. 2014 will be the year of gluten free.
As much as it pains me to think about eliminating all my favorite foods, it pains me even more to eat them. So it’s decided. I must try. I had to miss work yesterday because of a flare up from bad choices I made over the weekend. It started Sunday and I’m still recovering 4 days later. It felt like stomach flu. This is no way to live.
I’ve been doing a lot of reading. It’s so overwhelming. There is so much information and a lot of it is conflicting. All I know is I am tired of feeling sick and tired.
Considering that basically everything I eat contains gluten, I’m going to take this slow and expect some mistakes. I’m having to teach myself how to eat all over again.
Made a trip to Natural Grocers tonight and it went a little something like this:
After I recovered from the shock of the prices, I did end up getting a few things to get me started. The main sources of gluten for me are bread and tortillas so I figured I’d start there.
Something tells me that brown rice loaf isn’t going to be as tasty as the honey wheat I’ve been eating my entire life…
But food is not an activity. It’s not a celebration or an event. It’s fuel for my body. And my body apparently likes the chevron with techron premium unleaded type of fuel. What I sposed to do?
If anyone happens upon this post and has some good tips for a newbie gluten-free eater they are much appreciated
