getting on the gluten free bus

It was very difficult being a gluten free girl in the big city. However, because my lil sis is already a professional at eating this way, she has given me her wise advice. I have been spending all of my spare time at

If you want to lose weight, switch over to this diet. It is similar to the protein diet, but a little more healthy. Right now I am not allowed to eat raw veggies, that makes it very difficult, but soon enough, I will be able to add them too. My intestines are in bad shape, every little thing I digest has become a major issue. Another bit of advice...chew your food more than your usual chewing time. This makes a huge difference for your body. It even increases nutrient absorption...who knew?

So, I'm not feeling strong yet and the need to rest is still a priority. Denise is arriving today at mom and daddy's and I get to see her tomorrow and Friday. I can't wait to hold her in my arms and give her a big smooch.

I'll take plenty of pictures :)

I have been reading her story for several years and she has just written a book on her path and success overcoming celiac disease. She is a great writer, too.

Wow! Blessings on the diet. It's so hard to follow any kind of healthy change in this country. I had to go anti-candida for 2 yrs to get healthy. It was hellish for a while. Thank goodness for good supportive friends that would always provide edible options for me at their parties and dinners.

I'm glad you have a plan of attack.

I second the motion of getting to know Shauna over at gluten free girl. She is a huge -resource for changing you diet. I have a friend at church suffering from lupus and has chosen a gluten free lifestyle. While she claims no medical miracle she does report feeling much better and having more energy.

I continue praying for you and yours through this time and the challenges you are all facing.

My brother-in-law learned he had seliac (sp?) disease and they have gotten completely gluten free.
Though at times difficult it does seem to waken a creativity with food which is to open to creativity in life.
Good luck!

Oh Dar-I bet this is a big adjustment, but will be fabulous for you. I am really close to taking the gluten free plunge myself.

Lots of hugs and snuggles.
