    Oh, Rachel, I hardly can imagine my life without dairy products or wheat! Sometimes it is necessary to take two steps back, then to jump forward.
    You’re in my thoughts

  2. I couldn’t imagine life without wheat or dairy either!! I look forward to hearing about your food journey in the future.

    Oh, honey – I hope this is just a break for you all, while you get healthy. I’m glad you are seeing results already. I’m also looking forward to seeing where this food journey takes you – you always come up with the most interesting recipes to share. 🙂 xo

    Hey! Playing catch up. Don’t fret about the wheat. There are healthy substitutes and you will find “new” baked goodies with time. I hope this new diet helps get everything “right” with you body. It did wonders for my sister and in the long run, it was worth it.

    That salad looks divine – good start. If anybody can do it you guys will find a way!

  6. Rachel,

    Since I love those things too, I am hoping for you it is just temporary. And, I really hope you feel better soon!!! Whatever is topping that salad looks just fantastic!

    I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised at just how good you can really feel once all the junk from dairy and wheat are out of your body.
    I am doing a mod version of Whole30 right now [still can’t eat meat, but I have introduced bone broth in my diet and lived ;)]. I haven’t tried it yet,but I keep hearing about coconut flour which sounds promising. My family loves to eat farro [a huge favorite], quinoa and millet, have you tried any of them?
    Keep at it Rachel, I am cheering for you!

    So should I not tell you that I came home from work today and stirred up wheat bread, white bread, working on pumpkin bread and still making cookies before bedtime. I’d better get back at it ‘cuz once I sit down, I’m toast!!

    My sister has celiac disease and she makes amazing bakery treats, so don’t fear the junky food is out there with diet restrictions. I’m entitled to read more about your journey 🙂

    We started as gluten free because my niece has celiac disease. I felt much better, although via testing I do not have the disease. We have now gone completely grain-free. The kiddos do still have grains occasionally. Too tough not to while we stay a few weeks with my parents. I agree the hardest is the idea of not baking. I love to bake! You will adjust, but it is tricky at first. I think you will be amazed at how good food tastes.

    I once was on a nutritional cleanse for 6 weeks that did wonders for me. It included homemade chicken/veggie soup broth. A cup a day, everyday.
    I am always on the fence about eating meat products for animal welfare reasons, but I really believe in the power of chicken soup as “medicine.”
