I love that Gluten is now a verb.
In any case, I believed I had made it 8 days without wheat, and I certainly haven't binged, yet I wasn't feeling as great as I remembered feeling during prior Wheat Free streaks. The way I feel now can only be described as "meh". So what's the difference this time around?
A new Keurig machine. Actually, this was a gift from a few months ago that I never set up because I was very attached to my coffee maker. I have heard that the simple act of lighting a cigarette starts to release endorphins for smokers; for me, placing the coffee filter, scooping out the coffee, and setting up the pot works in much the same way for my caffeine addiction. I was loathe to give that up.
When I ran out of coffee filters on Sunday, I decided maybe the Keurig wouldn't be so bad. I've been enjoying the variety pack of K-cup coffee my Keurig came with since Sunday morning, and I'm not missing out on the coffee "process" like I thought I would. On the contrary, the Keurig is getting caffeine into my system much more quickly than before, so all is good on the Keurig front.
Clearly, the machine itself isn't what's causing my lack of focus or slightly bloated feeling. Perhaps it was the Dark Hot Chocolate K-Cups I had been indulging in nightly before bed time. But I checked the nutrition label and confirmed no wheat.
Ok, so it wasn't the Dark Hot Chocolate K-Cups either, Leaving one final culprit... wp.me/1N36Q
