Trying to Live the Gluten Free Way

Image

I had been so sick for so long and I couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong. Well, then after doing some research, I found out that what’s likely been going on is that I have an allergy to gluten. It made perfect sense and so I decided to try to go gluten free with my eating habits for awhile to see if that made any difference. It has worked wonders, though I have slipped a few times. Some of that was due to not knowing what to look for and some of it was due to special occasions and decided, “eh, why not?” Though, each slip was something I paid for.

Since beginning this change, I feel so much better. But, I still have so many questions. I have been asking friends and family members who deal with this for advice and for tips on what is edible and what isn’t. Well, now I am going to turn to you, my WordPress family. Two of the things I struggle with most right now is finding a good gluten free bread and also tortillas. I tried Mission gluten free tortillas and I can’t stand them. That so far is my biggest issue actually and for that, I guess I am glad.

I found a gluten free pasta that I love and also other stuff like gluten free soy sauce, pretzels, ice cream, etc. And I love that eating my fruits and veggies, as well as most of my dairy products are still possible for me. And of course knowing I can still eat meat is great, though now I have to watch what I season and marinade it with. So, if any of you has any advice, I am open to it!

I am aiming for a healthier and happier me! This is but one step towards that goal! Spring coming and becoming more active will certainly help as well. Bring on the walks to the park, kickball, summer bowling league, playing outside with my son, and just being able to get more Vitamin D, without freezing. 😉 I look forward to anything you wonderful people can share with me! And if I can help any of you who might just be starting this yourself, I will do what I can! ❤

Winter Can Be Kind Of Swell

Penguins

Through the wind and the freezing rain

It becomes increasingly difficult to ignore the pain

My knees are crying out to me

It would be best for us to rest, can you not see?

 

Tis the season when Bronchitis stalks me

I beg with all my might for it to flee

But like a stubborn child unwilling to submit

It decides it’s going to be something of a twit

 

Soon the snow will be here for a long unwanted stay

Though I ask it politely to leave, it won’t go away

Get out the shovels, coats, hats, gloves, boots, & snowbrushes too

Make way for slick roads, icy sidewalks, cold days, and say hello to the flu

 

Oh but it’s not as bad as I make it seem

See how upon the trees the snow gleams?

There’s sledding, skating, skiing, snowmobiling, and forts to build as well

Sometimes I admit, I suppose winter can be kind of swell

 

Reading a book all curled up under my favorite fuzzy blanket

And watching the Packers play on our awesome television set

Hot meals, hot cocoa, a warm fire, Christmas, and some cuddling too

It’s not so bad when I remember I get to spend it with you

I have been so busy lately, oi. (This has been mostly a good thing!) I swear I haven’t forgotten any of you though. 😉 Now on top of all the moving stuff and job hunting, I am sick too. Oh joy of joys. 😉 My son came home on Friday with what seemed like a minor cold and I seemed to escape it until Monday evening. (poor kiddo was worse for the wear on Saturday, but got right onto caring for him, so hopefully between myself and now what his dad is doing, he’s better now.) I now have bronchitis, not surprised because I have chronic bronchitis and asthma. However, enough whining!

The closing date on the house is tomorrow and we begin moving in and should be done this weekend. I am nearly ready to go, just have my pictures to wrap up once I have containers for them and I will have them when I am done with laundry (laughs) and keeping a few bathroom things out that I still need to use yet and will be putting those into my backpack later. We went shopping Monday evening for basics, it was so exciting, a bit expensive, but cool none the less. 🙂 I am so ready for this next chapter to begin!!!

I have a great guy in my life, a wonderful son, and some pretty terrific friends that I am surrounded by on a constant basis. There are some pretty outstanding family members and friends that I don”t get to see often as well, can’t forget to acknowledge the difference they make in my life, even if it is from afar. 😉 Doug’s dad gives me work when he can so that I can feel productive and have a little cash. Help is coming for Grandma and still doing the best I can for her until things change that way, glad I have been able to do this for her. Life has some pretty big bumps along the way, but the good outweighs them in the end and they also teach me and help me grow.

I won’t have internet for a little while once we move, so don’t be alarmed WordPress family, I am still here and will be back to posting more regularly once things have settled down a bit. Till then, I hope you all are out there living life to the fullest! Make cherished memories, let kindness and good deeds happen naturally, love fiercely and with all you have, and live each moment being grateful for the time you’re given. I love you all, be back soon!
