My son has been having some GI issues as well as some other stuff going on. After some research I decided it would be worth it to go gluten-free and see if his issues resolve. So far things are heading in the right direction, but eliminating gluten is like eliminating all the sunshine in the world, and I’m in Portland! I know I sound like a whiny fat kid, probably because I am a whiny fat kid, but I live to eat. The first thing and the last thing I think about everyday is food and what I’m going to eat. Gluten, I’ve come to realize makes up 75% of my diet, between the sandwiches and cupcakes, I’m literally starving and it’s only been since Monday. What I wouldn’t do for a vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting or a soft pretzel covered in salt warm from the oven. I know, I know there are gluten free options available, but when you start making bread without gluten the list of ingredients becomes scary long and that’s not really a trade-off I’m willing to make, plus it just doesn’t taste the same. I just made a trader joe’s gluten-free pizza and it was ok, but the crust was sandy and kind of gritty. The best things for us are never the easiest-that’s for sure!
