Hi! I am gluten free and was just told by my doctor this past tue. that he wants me to go dairy free for about 3 weeks to see how that affects a health condition that I have, he is thinking that I have a dairy intolerance that is triggering some health problems. I have yet to start the dairy free diet, I have to gain some courage first. I agree that gluten free has been easier then I thought but I cook mostly everything from scratch too!
I also am gluten and dairy free..it has been interesting these last 3 weeks. I love to cook form scratch so that helps. I also make turkey meat balls and gr turkey with organic salsa and or chicken breasts up ahead of time so all i have to do is weigh out my 2-3 oz and I'm all ready to go! I am eating every 2-3 hours and a lot of proteins. a typical day is egg and egg white omelet with cut up veggies, protein shake for am and afternoon snack (whey as i can't do soy with my thyroid meds) lunch is a big salad with protein usually chicken or turkey and then supper I get to add my starch usually potato or br rice with protein and veggies or another salad. I just use balsamic on my salad. i do not follow the spark menu but add my own and alot of member already have the info in...it does take a lot of effort to get going, but well worth it and you will feel so much better. hang in there you'll be a pro soon. let me know if i can help in any way!
