I haven't been able to eat even a bite of salad without horrible pain; now that I have been off gluten for a month, I stole a few bites of my hubbies and had no extra pain! If I have to give up bread forever I would love to get back to salad. I am still doing really well with this, much more energy which is fabulous. good friday to you all, yp

Isn't it empowering to take charge of your health in this way! I'm so glad that the gluten-free diet is quietening your symptoms.

yes, bell, it IS empowering to feel some control after such an out of control couple of years. I have so much energy I am practically bursting; my friends keep threatening to sneak me wheat, cuz they have forgotten what a hyper-spaz I am by nature.
thanks, Chas, I am happily still eating all the other junk I love and it is working fine so far! I giving up gluten seems enough for now.

Hooray for salad....isn't it wonderful! I apologize to those who can't eat it! It took me soooo long after surgery to eat it again. I still have to be careful not too eat too much at one time and only drizzle the olive oil & balsamic vinegar. Crunch....crunch...crunch!

Glad to hear you're feeling even better! :-) It's only been about a week and I really miss spinach.
 
I just ordered several SCD and grain-free cookbooks. Decided to try that after the liquid diet. I've been feeding my dog grain-free since he had cancer 3 years ago, the difference in energy is amazing and he looks great for his age (70 in dog years). So I guess it's probably better for everyone tongue
