Good to hear from you Kaycie, been wondering how you were. I think you did the right thing, and who knows maybe one day you can get 'hooked up' again.
Gluten free isn't that hard, although I'm not sure how much it's helping me. Take care.
Funny thing is, my great-aunt (a retired 40 year surgical tech) asked me if they've tested me! They never have! Oh well. More stuff to question the GI about
. To be perfectly honest, now that I'm post surgery.. I'm starting to eat more healthy foods.. granola, yogurt, wheat bread, meat, veggies, fruits, etc.. it's quite amazing! I was living on the ice cream/peanut butter/cereal diet before! We went to the grocery for the frist time a few days ago..and I just stood there and went.. "I don't know what to choose!" It's been 3 1/2 years since I had WAFFLE syrup! I mean, I don't eat pancakes all day everyday..heck, MAYBE once a money, but it was awesome to taste it again. I had it twice in the hospital, now I could care less if I had it again for a long time. I'm going to eat an apple here for dessert soon! I'm eating strawberries..hamburgers.. I'm just thrilled with that.
Thanks for the info on gluten. Really, it isn't hard..it's just figuring out what it IS in. I have a bread maker.. and I'm considering starting to make my own bread.. Probably cheaper and I could make it easily with a few loaves a week. I just have a tiny kitchen so I hate hauling it out and then hauling it back! If I made bread though, my only other downfall would be tortillas.. and pasta.. but I bet I could figure that one out.
