Going GF

 As I said in a previous post...My Acupuncturist  advised me to go on a Gluten free diet to reduce the inflammation in the body to lower NK cells that attak the  baby around implntation time etc..I was a bit worried about it...Not sure I could stick it out.

But, I have found that going gluten free is not nearly as hard as I thought it would be! There are so many great GF options out there to replace what you might normally eat...I actually find this to be less of a sacrifice than going carb free all together...THAT does me in! But this is manageable for the most part....I will admit I have cheated like twice...BUT I am not going to beat myself up about it, I am going to let yesterday, stay in the past and let today be a NEW day. I will be steadfast in my desire to eat better and help my body heal. I will conquer today. I can do this!

I have learned to really like rice again...So many ways to cook it and make it taste yummy and mix it with all sorts of great veggies etc. I need to work on learning to cook fish a bit better...I  like fish, but have a hard time cooking it healthy. Of course chicken is a no brainier, and I have gotten down  a few quick and easy ways to make my meals with it. Oh and corn tortillas! I LOVE them to wrap stuff up in those! I can use them for so many things! Of course not everyone likes them, but man O man am I glad I can have them, because I do love them!

 It is getting to be summer type weather out here, so with that comes grilling season! which I LOVE...so looking forward to that. I also am enjoying learning to cook differently, and it has made my whole family eat better. Even DH is doing the GF with me for his migraines. That helps me stay a bit more accountable...He also has been bringing me home new things to try every day! what a doll! =)


If there is anyone else out there doing a GF diet, feel free to drop a comment of your fave site to get GF recipes from! Id love to check them out!!

  1. That's so interesting! I've heard that GF can help with fertility stuff, but I've never heard that from a professional! So interesting...

    As for sites, I'm not GF, but I do know glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com :)

  2. Very interesting post! I am GF because a blood test said I am sensitive. When I eat gluten is makes my joints hurt (I have RA), gives me headaches and makes me nauseous. It's just not worth eating! I had no idea going GF also helps reduce inflammation. Well, that's a bonus for me too! Good luck on maintaining your GF transition. It gets easier the longer you do it! ~Angela
