That day again
Sunday, January 01, 2012
That we all make our new years resolutions. I have one extra reason to keep an eye on my eating. It has happened a few times to many to be a coincidence: Whenever I eat something with gluten in it I end up with a migraine.
I had the first small slip up on Tuesday night. I had forgotten my glasses and the guy from the shop who read the label for me, screwed up. By the time I read the label and found out, I had already eaten some of it. Then I had some ice cream on Friday. The ice cream itself would have been fine, but there where some mocha beans in there that were crunchy. I still haven't checked the label for that, but I'm pretty sure there was some wheat in there. Last but not least I had a cappuccino dessert that had a layer of cake in the bottom. I just scraped off the dessert, but apparently I still ended up digesting some of it. By Saturday morning I had a whopping migraine. Lousy timing, because that was New Years eve. To make matters worse, I thought that the shops were open until 8 p.m. Turns out they closed at six. I either read it wrong or I remembered it wrong. There was still a night shop open and I got some goodies there. (considering it's supposed to be my last 'junk food' for a while) Some Ice cream (Yogurt ice cream this time) and some potato chips. I really need to start taking my glasses with me when I go shopping, because I'm not even sure that that ice cream was okay. (although another brand of yogurt ice cream I had last week was) My usual supermarket has icons on there home brand stuff for allergy information. They have a special icon for 'Gluten free' (even when it's a product that never has any gluten in it) That way there is no second guessing.
Here's to a gluten and therefore headache free 2012!
