Getting Derailed

I haven’t published any posts this week, and it’s already Thursday. My intention is to do at least two or three recipes a week, hopefully even more as time goes on. This week I got derailed.I got what we like to call “glutened,” and I have been sick for days. My kitchen is safe, and by that I mean there is literally no gluten there.

Pasta and Self-Pity

How long will I mourn the loss of gluten?  I stood in the aisle of my small town grocery store tonight and held back tears because the slot where my gluten-free spaghetti usually sits is now occupied by a whole-wheat pasta version that no one ever buys.  I felt pathetic standing there with my mouth agape, pasta sauce in one hand, bagged salad in the other.  Three years after my diagnosis of Celiac Disease, I'm still stumbling along in the wilderness of gluten-free living....more

Why It’s More Than Gluten. 19 Reasons Why You Might Not Be Feeling Well.

What I LearnedIn 2002, after being sick for over a year, I found a doctor that was able to give me real answers. Since a lot of my symptoms were GI related he recommended a stool test. The results showed gluten, dairy, soy and egg intolerance. I definitely felt better after removing those foods and supplementing with nutrients that I had lost from all the GI distress and leaky gut. But I never completely had freedom from stomach pain, itching, post nasal drip and fluid in my ears....more
