Gluten Free is HARD!

FEW

Well.. here’s an update on my gluten free and dairy free experiment. It is HARD!

I’ve been doing it for almost 2 weeks now.  And it is getting easier, but it is still very hard to be a gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian.

There have been moments when I realized too late that I didn’t check a label, and yes… my upset stomach let me know about it.

However the upside is that I am actually feeling better.

My aches and pains are down quite a bit.  I haven’t needed a pain reliever for the last 2 weeks.

I lost over 10lbs and I haven’t changed my exercise routine at all.

My inflammation issues seem to be a little better.

And overall, I feel like I am starting to feel less grouchy about giving up gluten and dairy.

It’s hard.  I really really miss my mac and cheese.  But, I know that in 6 months, I will be better able to see what difference it makes for me.  I’ve learned a few new recipes and I am happy that I’m learning a new cooking skill.

  1. <3 I feel your pain. Humans are addicted to gluten and don't know it. So it takes me typically 2 weeks to loose that crave. Even when I glutened by accident, the smallest amount, I'll crave bagels REAL bagels and it goes away after just about 2 weeks. It sucks!
