Today is one of those â€œhurry up and waitâ€ kind of days. We had an early patient at the clinic, so we rushed out of the house! And now Iâ€™m doing the secretarial thing.
Busy mornings call for cereal.
Lovinâ€™ this Organic Whole Oâ€™s from Natureâ€™s Path. Itâ€™s a gluten-free cereal that actually doesnâ€™t taste disgusting! Wahoo. Maybe people have asked me how Iâ€™ve been feeling since switching to a lower gluten diet (I took a saliva test that revealed I may be sensitive â€“ saliva tests definitely arenâ€™t the final word on gluten sensitivities, just an FYI). Honestly, before the test, I never wouldâ€™ve guessed that I was sensitive. I ate gluten all day long (literally) and never had any of the telltale signs.
But I have to say that I feel so much better since I stopped, which confirms to me that I am sensitive. I havenâ€™t had a single headache since reducing gluten. What I thought was â€œmy body shapeâ€ was actually minor bloating â€“ hah! And really, eating mostly GF hasnâ€™t been that hard â€“ Iâ€™ve been filling on quinoa, millet, GF oats, Udi bread (LOVE!!!), and other tasty GF alternatives, like this cereal. Once I stopped focusing on what I â€œcouldnâ€™tâ€ eat and focused on all the yummy stuff that I could eat, it stopped feeling like torture. I think thatâ€™s true for any eating style, really!
In the mix:
- Whole Oâ€™s
- Greek yogurt
- Chia seeds
- Almond buttah
Back to work I go! HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
