January is a time for people to make changes and the perfect opportunity for me to help anyone who wants to go gluten free. The most common question I am asked is "How do you go gluten free?" This month I'll share with you how our family did it. Our story...
The day I saw my blood test results confirming wheat was making me sick was the last day I ate anything intentionally with gluten. My emotions were wild, and my whole life passed by me...a life that had been filled with delicious food and unlimited choices. How could this be? I looked at the test results over and over again in disbelief.
What was I going to eat? I immediately knew my daughter probably had the same problem as this is genetic. The panic button pushed even deeper. That night I dreamt I was at the grocery store when suddenly all the lights went out. I felt irrationally terrified. I couldn't see anything, and I couldn't find my way. My dream said it all.
The next day my survival instinct took charge, and I ruthlessly emptied my pantry and refrigerator. I'll share how I did this in tomorrow's post.
