I Broke Up with Bread
By OM of Mom on January 15, 2014
I have a wheat allergy! It’s not big deal I just can’t eat a single thing I grew up eating. So, it has taken me approximately 365 days to acknowledge my wheat allergy and get a grip on it.
I tried stopping cold turkey “sandwich” which is just the way I “half ass” my way through life. When that didn’t work I cried.
I tried only buying “gluten free” foods. Less than yum! I got heartburn and almost threw up a few times that lasted a whole week. I again cried.
I tried juicing – no gluten in juice right? Woman cannot live on juice alone – I cried again.
It has taken a year of tragedy and failure! This is my first week (not weak) completely gluten free – without crying!! I found the things I already liked (that were gluten free) and made a plan. I planned dinner and lunch. I bring seeds and nuts to work and I never buy anything that says GLUTEN FREE on the package – by the way Chocolate is gluten free so there’s that!!!
If you are struggling – remember I have cried enough for the both of us. Take each meal at a time. Don’t give yourself a chance to get hungry because we all make BAD decisions when we are hungry :D
Take Care – Dear Friend
