you're doing everything right! I agree eating out is hazardous to our waistline and our diet but we do want to enjoy social events with friends. Google your city with the words gluten free and you should find lots of recommendations from your gf eaters. Also, check the recommendations in our sticky topics. Barb (gf 30 yrs)
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. Charles Stanley
I found out 6 weeks ago that I have Celiac's Disease and going GF has been one of the best things in my life. My only challenge is eating out, and since I found out that all the Outback restaurants have a gluten free menu at least I have several "go places" Cheeseburger in Paradise even has a GF bun. However I am trying mostly to eat grain free as I am following a modified Paleo diet. ( I tolerate fermented dairy so I can eat most cheeses and yogurt) The hamburgers are a real splurge for me though as they are very high in fat. I am a type 2 diabetic and for the first time ever I am in control and my A1c has dropped from 8.7 to 6.8 and I expect that it will be lower next quarter. Cooking at home I keep everything simple and I am experimenting with spices and stir frying. I still want to eat out a lot and that is hazardous to my waist line. I am hoping that meal planning will help me to better lose weight and to continue to get healthier.
