If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Good food makes a big difference in wanting to eat gluten-free. Of course--you can have all the fresh fruit, veggies, and lean meat you want but sometimes you don't want that so here are some yummy gluten-free foods.
Pamela's Gluten-Free bread machine mix (an actual gluten-free bread that is not so dry you have to put something on it and yummy too!)
Lunderberg Rice Chips, Sante Fe Barbecue, these were my favorite chips before I found out I had Celiac. They are sweet and salty.
Act II Popcorn balls, maybe not the healthiest but only 100 calories per ball and it feels like a treat.
Simply organic banana bread it's moist and just the right amount of sweetness.
and for special occasions:
Simply organic carrot cake. I had the carrot cake at Thanksgiving. I added lots of carrots and walnuts, then frosted it with cream cheese frosting, it was to die for.
There are lots of alternatives that the gluten-free if you're willing to cook that are really yummy.

Best wishes on your new journey! I need to do the same thing--was told over 20 yrs ago that I was "allergic" to wheat, but I've just kind of cut back here and there, once in a while, you know how it goes! Linda C

Hi all! I am 36 and have quite a few health issues (lupus, fibromyalgia, GERD, arthritis, acne). I have been on numerous meds and am hoping that I will be able to reduce the number of meds by totally changing my diet. A year ago I decided to do a gluten-free trial and I felt much better, but then I was going to be tested for celiac and needed to start eating gluten again - it took me a year to finally go back to gluten free.
So I am on week two. I have gone off my antidepressant and the sleeping pill I took because my antidepressant caused insomnia. I am also attempting to go off my heartburn med. I suspected that it may have had an impact on my weight gain, and a recent study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology confirmed that. I am working on more "natural" GERD remedies - eating apples so far...
I have two children and am starting a new career as a lactation consultant, so making major changes to my diet is definitely a challenge, but if I feel better and am able to reduce my meds that will keep me motivated.
