Gluten free for a week and not regretting it

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

I've been gluten free for a week now and I don't regret it one bit. I know that I've only lost 2 pounds but I feel great.

Sunday night we went to the little pizza place for supper and dad wanted to get pizza. I didn't because it has gluten in the crust. Told him if he wanted pizza he had to get a small one. He wanted something bland because he had an upset stomach a couple hours prior. It feels like he was trying to get me off of my diet. But I didn't. Don't think that he realize that he is. Think that I'm going to have our doctor talk to him whenever I have my appointment. I don't know how to tell my dad that what he's either doing or eating is affecting me. Before I became gluten free, he would eat something that I shouldn't eat and I would eat something. It wouldn't be all the time. Its gotten kind of worse since I became gluten free. I would eat something healthy and he would eat something that I use to crave like cookies, chips, donuts, and a few other things. But I tell myself that I don't need to eat whatever he's eating. Try to eat healthy in front of him since he has been feeling the affects of his COPD and his heart problems. He will be 78 In May and I want him to be there longer to watch his great granddaughter grow up.

    I am not gluten free but find that at times I load up on the carbs too much and am always on the lookout for alternatives. Have you tried this recipe for cauliflower crust pizza? I did and it was so good. I tried another recipe that completely didn't work, but this one was good.

    You are inspiring me to try a gluten free diet. I don't know if I am sensitive to gluten - have always eaten a lot of wheat. Anyway, think I might see if there are benefits.

    As for your Dad, don't let his poor habits deter you. Be strong. My own father lived to 95 and pretty much ate whatever he wanted. I do believe the last few years he ate berry or apple pie for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
