thanks for the welcome.
11 years ago my son was tested for Celiac - came back negative *whew* was such a relief (he was an infant at the time - 9 months) I'm pretty confident that none of the family has it.
I'm mainly waiting to try this just to see if it has any effect on the moods on the family.
What books did I order from the library:
250 GLUTEN-FREE FAVORITES : includes dairy-free, egg-free and white sugar-free recipes by Donna Washburn
HEALTHY BREAD IN FIVE MINUTES A DAY : 100 new recipes featuring whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and gluten-free Ingredients by Jeff Hertzberg
The autism & ADHD diet : a step-by-step guide to hope and healing by living gluten free and casein free (GFCF) and other interventions by Barrie Silberberg
The G-free diet : a gluten-free survival guide by Elisabeth Hasselbeck
Living gluten-free for dummies by Danna Korn
and today the following book came in and I picked it up this afternoon:
You won't believe it's gluten-free! : 500 delicious, foolproof recipes for healthy living by Roben Ryberg
I really was amazed at some of the recipes in the book... I'm rather excited.
My oldest son (almost 12) was NOT happy to hear about the changes that will be taking place - but daddy told him "you wont even realize it... these foods will be just as good if not BETTER" (he was looking at the book with me) and we already have been talking about trying to get away from as much processed foods as possible and making more things from scratch. What a great place to start!
I also just ordered the Eat Right For Your Type book as well as Cook right 4 your type and The ultimate metabolism diet : eat right for your metabolic type by Scott Rigden
Yup, over the next 3 months we'll be "cleaning house" - using up all the things that wont be included in our diet starting in January... and hopefully by January, we'll be ready to go 100%... I told the family we'll make a 3 month goal January through March... and then we'll decide whether we want to continue, see if we notice any differences in moods, feelings, health ect... and go from there... hey, we might actually be enjoying it so much by then, eating things all made by scratch, that none of us want to "go back".
