That makes a lot of sense. I'm no longer waking up with a 'coated tongue' if that makes sense. I could never go back to eating gluten as much as I still crave it.

Very true, Living4us! I am very grateful for all the choices we have now.

As for the flavors of foods, I think the gluten in foods masks some of the flavor because it is used as a thickener, which absorbs some of the flavors in the food being thickened.

@KACEYSW, My Dad had Celiac and had to go GF almost 25 years ago. I'm glad that I have to do it now rather than back when he, or you, did when the GF options were horrible and horribly expensive. There's so much more knowledge available now at our fingertips than what he, or you, would've had back then.

@MEG-NATALIA07, I've noticed a higher pain level (Fibro and Osteoarthritis) too with sugar/simple carbs.

Been experimenting with GF baking and eating for the past year, but didn't see the benefit for myself until more recently. I have made the leap for health reasons to fight pain and fatigue and help my body fight other issues. I do notice that when I indulge now, usually with dairy and sugar, my skin is very sore and tender the next day and my stomach will hurt more.

GRACE. BEAUTY. LAUGHTER. REST. COMPASSION. GOOD FOOD.


I love to cook and bake. I have compiled hundreds of recipes on Pinterest: Crowd pleasers: Traditional & Lightened versions of timeless favorites, as well as: gluten free, vegan, Paleo & Grain-Free... and a ton of Scones and desserts.

I have been gluten-free for 17 years and noticed early on that foods seemed to taste more flavorful once I eliminated the gluten products. I bought very few "gluten-free products back then as they were incredibly expensive and very "styrofoam-like" in flavor and texture. I am just very grateful there are so many tasty gluten-free options out there now than there were before!

As for getting "nuked" (as I call it), my body is very quick to let me know that I have erred and responds accordingly. No fun at all.

I wonder why that is?

Me too when I've been glutened.

I have experienced the same thing BUT like yourself I have no clue why. I do know that when I eat something I am not supposed to BOY does my body let me know it and have it!

I've been GF for 12 weeks, 2 days and counting. There have been numerous benefits for me and I know it's a way of life. Of those benefits I noticed the strangest thing over the last week or so...I am tasting my food now. We were eating chili last weekend and my husband was surprised when I said 'I never knew chili tasted this good before'. We figure it's because I'm not eating it with a (2-3) bun, I just had the chili.
I mean, I'm not complaining but is this normal? Has anyone else GF experienced this? And do you know why?
