Going Gluten Free [aka Figuring Things Out]

Sunday, April 14, 2013

Whelp I'm hopping on the gluten free wagon for at least 60 days. I am, for lack of a better word, broken in many facets. Whether it's my tummy or a migraine or being exhausted or some obscene virus someone my age shouldn't really get -- I just always seem to have something going wrong.

SO after much denial and resistance I have finally conceeded and decided to try going gluten free for at least 60 days. My mom sent me this article: www.naturalnews.c
and urged me to try going gluten free (not for the first time). My sister is gluten-intolerant and they think it might be genetic so...she's been really wanting me to try it.

So I'm on day 2 and things are going alright. It's a tad easier than it might have been otherwise because my sister has already been eating gluten-free for a few years now so I have a pretty great resource. It's still certainly an adjustment, but I figure I can get through 60 days at least and if it helps my problems then GREAT and if it doesn't I guess I will just have to accept I am actually broken. What a bummer that would be, right?

So far I've stocked up on gluten free goodies and am hoping I will eat a lot more "natural" foods because of this shift. Fingers crossed! I'll keep updating. :)

    I also went gluten free for several months and it was fantastic. I loved it. I felt so much better and didn't really miss the wheat. I hope you feel better, too!

    My DH is gluten intolerant and we do many things gluten free, but he sneaks in his little discretions. Pretty sure you will feel better in less than 30 days.
