I spent the next week scrubbing out kitchen cabinets, drawers and my toiletries to be sure no traces of gluten remained.
Thankfully, M was on board so he kept his gluten eating to outside the house.
A year ago, I couldn't believe how much I had learned, but I can say the same of this year. Everyday make it a little bit easier and even sometimes fun. Sure, I still miss certain foods, but most of all I miss the ease of going to a dinner party or restaurant and just being able to eat whatever I want, but this is my life and I know what will happen if I do get accidental gluten, so I will NEVER intentionally cheat. That pain and discomfort is not worth it. Not to mention the damage it is doing to my health.
We recently returned from a fabulous trip in Disney World where eating gluten-free was easy-peasy. More on that in the next post.
I want to send a huge heartfelt thank you to all who have helped me along the way on this gluten-free journey and shown me patience and guidance....un grand Merci!!!
