I’ve forgotten when I started my (mostly) gluten free lifestyle. It almost seems like I have been doing it forever. It isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I didn’t have to try not to eat the rolls or pie at Thanksgiving. I had made some stuffing with gluten free bread, and that was good, and I had made some gluten free cookies. They were yummy!
I’ve ordered a set of gluten free flours from King Arthur Flour and Bob’s Red Mill. Now I just need to have time to try some of my new recipes. I thought I would miss the bread the most, but maybe once you stop eating it, you stop craving it, sort of like cigarettes.
It doesn’t hurt that I feel a lot better. I haven’t lost any weight, but I don’t have that bloated, lethargic feeling that I used to have. And my brain doesn’t feel as fuzzy. I actually got my clothes out that I plan to wear tomorrow, and I’m not leaving the house until 10:00. And the laundry is all folded. Okay, it’s not all put away, but almost! I am making headway on my Christmas shopping, and I have already started making plans for our Christmas get together. I think someone should call the doctor! I never plan anything ahead of time.
I had to work today, but it was alright. We weren’t busy at all, so I got to play around and do a lot of different, creative holiday designs. Some of them worked, and some of them didn’t, but that’s okay. I have to actually make a cake to try out an idea. Today was the first day I had done anything creative at work in a long time.
Sorry I didn’t get any pictures for the Thanksgiving Photo Quest. I just didn’t feel up to taking pictures. I was fighting a cold, and it was trying to take over. I hate coughing. It wears me out.
