Today is the day I chose to give up Gluten for good.
I have had an autoimmune thyroid disease *Hashimotos* for at least 5 years now and it wasn't till this week during my research that I finally understood how this protein truly makes the pain in my
SO...in true Heather fashion I had a moment with each of my favorite gluten dependent faves. There was Chicken Fried Steak and Buffalo Tenders and Macaroni and Cheese...there was Pecan Pie...and a LOVELY Chocolate Chip Cookie *that I was forced to share* and there were pita chips and fine cheeses.....I could go on and on!!!
Today will be easy and this gluten thing is nothing new for this family. We have had Olivia on and off EVERY*good*THING free diets for sometime.
I can do this one step at a time. These are big steps toward a healthier me. One that hopefully will feel energized and less dizzy and brain fogged 24/7. Vertigo is nobodies friend.
Gluten is just the beginning of my overhaul.Over the next few weeks I will also be removing the rest of the grains out there....eggs.....and dairy.....maybe even nightshade veggies too. Those will be the last...I don't suspect they are causing any of my trouble....and I will cry without salsa and hot peppers!!!!
I look forward to getting thru AIP (autoimmune protocol) and healing up my guts!!!! *please let there be eggs in my long term future*
Send me some prayers and mojo!!!!
