So it has been 20 days since I adapted a gluten-free lifestyle – woo hoo! I say lifestyle because it is SO much more than just a dietary change. In fact, the numerous benefits of going gluten-free has been more than amazing! From feeling more energetic and less spacey to treating medical issues and losing weight, I am a big believer in the healing powers of removing gluten from my body. 

I want to make it clear that while I am removing foods and drinks containing gluten from my diet, I am certainly not depriving myself of eating delicious, healthy food.  Here are just a few pictures of what I’ve been enjoying:

As you can see from the pictures above, I am not starving, nor am I eating things that taste less than pleasant. I have to say, going gluten-free has been a wonderful reminder to try new foods because I am definitely getting a little bit more creative at meal planning now!  :)

Do you have any dietary restrictions? Going gluten-free has been pretty easy for me. Was it difficult for you to make dietary changes in the past?

  • I at one point wanted to go gluten-free because I suspected I was sensitive to gluten )I was never tested for it cause apparentlyt he internist didn’t feel it encessary). However, I reside in an institutions o it’s kind of hard to go gluten-free and sitll eat healthfully.

  • I don’t have any dietary restrictions, but I do like to eat quite a few gluten free foods. Glad to hear that your gluten free diet is working for you.

  • I did not realize how many great foods you could make gluten free, thanks!

  • I at one point went gluten free because i have been struggling through health issues in my stomach and gave it a try to see if it helped. Just be careful as most of the items marketed as gluten free are very processed and altered that they are 10 times more unhealthy for you. I learned that the hard way :/ I have now learned how to really eat healthy and clean and most it still gluten free but naturally gluten free (fruits, veggies, etc.) We also make very yummy foods!

    I have an aunt who is gluten sensitive & since she switched to gluten free, her quality of life has improved. She says at 75 she feels better than she has in years.

  • Heidi C.:

    I don’t have gluten intolerance/sensitivity but I do have IBS so I am very careful as to what I eat. I can’t wait to follow along with you, though, as see how this change affects you!
