So far, so good my Skittles.
Not a whole lot to report on the G-free front – except – that I’m learning more each day and I’m a label-reading guru. I’ve added some new things to my meal plans.
I have found out I can eat:
Taco seasoning (certain brands)
Salsa (Tostitoes scoops are gluten-free)
And the list goes on. At my local grocery store, I have found all the gluten-free flour I could ever need (for making gravy) and an entire gluten-free section of food.
This section of course, has good and bad. Oreo cookies and cookie mixes – all gluten free. Of which I didn’t buy any. I’m still trying to aim for mostly health – not just gluten-free.
Instead of eggs for breakfast, I’ve been making smoothies.
One cup of skim milk, one cup of yogurt and one cup of frozen berries. YUM!
I did buy gluten-free pasta to try.
Other than that – I’m sticking to the staples of brown rice, potatoes, chicken, tilapia and broccoli…and eggs.
Today begins day 8 and I’m down 3.5 pounds so that’s a nice bonus. I’ve been drinking tons of water and still taking magnesium and Vitamin D.
A surge in energy and the absence of migraines (except for the one) are the two major changes I’ve noticed. And not feeling sick after I eat.
3 more weeks to go!
