Hi there. I have been doing a lot of reading and researching the gluten-free resources and recipes preparing to go gluten-free myself after several months of learning and supporting my dear boyfriend, who has been following a severely spartan GFCF diet for over two years. I am finding the challenge interesting and have begun baking for him about once a day, re-introducing grains and breads and cookies and etc. into his diet. If left alone, he would continue eating a tablespoonful of peanut butter here, a boiled egg or two there, and occasionally if he's feeling spry and moneyed, a dinner out at a sushi or thai restaurant.
I personally am not interested in going the boiled egg and peanut butter route, so am considering going GFCF myself not only to support him but to make meals for us easier (cooking for both rather than one... him...)
Would love any suggestions and support I can find. I also have found over the last few years since trying the Atkins diet that I probably do have a dairy and a mild gluten allergy. I doubt my issues are strong enought to be actual celiac disease, but would consider any help or suggestions on how to get that diagnosed you might have, as I understand I would need to get diagnosed BEFORE I go fully gluten-free.
Happy to be here!
