People I knew always loved when I posted pictures of what I ate, so I decided to start sharing them more 🙂
The summer of 2011, my naturopathic doctor had me on a very strict diet. I had been really sick, so she decided to test me for food sensitivities. She found 11…amd I had to stop eating all 11 of them! She wanted me to eliminate them for 4 to 6 months. She hoped that this would allow my body to “reset” itself. They were a long few months let me tell you…but now I can enjoy eating them! Well, all of them except for one.
That brings us to the summer of 2012. I always had “stomach” issues and I was even diagnosed with acid reflux when I was little. I had been feeling a lot better, but something still wasn’t right after all the foods were reintroduced. Finally, someone had the bright idea of testing me for Celiac Disease! I went to my doctor and sure enough…I have it. Good thing one of those sensitivities was wheat..because now I had beginner practice going gluten free. Now this time I just had to do it for the rest of my life!
I grew up shopping in health food stores (and trust me they’ve gotten a lot better in the past 20 years). I didn’t come to terms with my diagnosis right away…I didn’t even do it the right way for a longggg time. But I have found it can be just as exciting as “regular” eating and I’m here to show that to the world!
I don’t have a great quality camera (I use my galaxy s7) and I’m not a trained chef…but I hope you enjoy my journey!
