She called me a few weeks ago and said she thought she should start eating gluten free. She doesn’t have insurance that would cover the cost of testing for Celiac disease, but since it does run in our family she is starting to research and gather information about Celiacs and wheat intolerance. She is sick and tired of feeling bad all the time.
I quizzed her about her symptoms some of the more common ones; The stomach aches, diarrhea, cramps, skin problems, extra weight, foggy brain, depression. To name a few. Her response. ” I have all of those! So we started talking about foods that could replace some of the comfort foods she so loves. Her comfort foods are “pizza and pasta and anything bread”she said.
She was concerned about the holidays coming up and she wouldn’t be able to eat some of the traditional dishes we all look forward to at Thanksgiving and Christmas. My suggestion to Becka was to start researching and looking for recipes. Most of the core dishes can be or are naturally gluten free. Such as the turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetable and fruit salad. Hey, you can even make that green bean casserole with Gluten free cream of mushroom soup if you have to have it. Just find a substitute for the crunchy onions on top and your in business.
A few days later she sent this recipe for both of us to try. Gluten free living can be very yummy.
Becka is on her way to finding that out.
Happy hunting Becka and you will reap the benefits of better health.
