|Had I known this I would have |
given up gluten years ago. #cellulite
Nora will stop referring to herself in the third person now.
|A pan of what we thought was gluten free lasagna.|
That was before I discovered sausage does indeed
contain gluten. Dammit - so close to being gluten free!!
He said it was really not likely.
Hearing his opinion made me decide to try going gluten free for a month or so and see if there was any improvement.
I started at lunch last Saturday (had to do some shopping first!) and it really hasn't been too bad. It's a learning curve for me, however. Things I thought were gluten free are not, and I ate them in the last week so I guess I haven't been truly gluten FREE, more like gluten frugal.
|Part of my gluten-free lunch one day this week: |
salad with honey-dijon dressing, and for dessert,
Annie's Vanilla & Cocoa Bunny Cookies and
chocolate covered pretzels. The other part was
the lasagna with gluten failure.
Even more crushing news: I found out that envelope glue contains gluten. (Stamps too!) Such a disappointment! First I had to come to grips with the fact that the occupation of "Hand Model" would never be listed on my resume. Now I have to give up the dream of appearing on "My Freaky/Disgusting/Attention-Seeking Habit" and showcasing my compulsion to lick 5000 envelopes a day???? This sucks!! I'm never going to be famous.
Annnnnyyyyywhoooo.....Allow me to say goodbye to a few of my gluten-filled friends I can no longer hang with:
- Gorgonzola cheese
- Grey Goose Vodka
- Cottage cheese
- Clif bars
- Chocolate Malt-O-Meal
- Boca burgers
- Steel cut oatmeal
- Did I mention Oreos?
But the friend to whom I most hate to say goodbye?
DON JULIO TEQUILA.
That's going to be a tough one. (If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you know how much I adore my sippin' tequila.)
But I adore running even more so if this experiment works, it will be well worth it.
