Such fun! So many of us from all the provinces and territories. I am north of Toronto, off Lake Simcoe. Originally from Belleville Ontario.
I took my diagnosis as the dream come true that it was to me. Finally a reason, a definable, medical reason, that others could understand. No more pain, no more embarrassment, no more bloating up and looking pregnant randomly, rashes from my job...I was a Baker :-)No more 2-3 times a year hospital visits, with an exhausted husband asleep by my bedside while I cried silently in frustration that I was back here AGAIN.
I already knew how to bake and cook, though for a week or two I felt a bit overwhelmed and just ate salad and chicken lol. Then my appetite and creativity kicked in. I have always been the daughter that cooked for my family since I was 9, it was a passion! SO now, when we visit my mother, or sister or M-in law, I still make everything, but its all gluten free now. X-mas dinner was a mescalin greens salad with lobster in a lemon and butter vinagrette, followed by orange roasted root vegetables, mashed potatoes and Leg of Lamb. Pavlova with fresh whipped cream and berries for dessert. Anyone who says they don't know what to eat...give it time, you will find your way. It just takes time.
Without my husbands support, before and after diagnosis..well I don't even want to think about that.
To anyone trying to find certain items at a local store but coming up short, I would say, check out a recipe and have a go at it yourself. Making your own food is very satisfying and somethings that you may have thoughts were complicated are not. Things like beef jerky, or yogurt/sour cream, or even your own potato chips. All super simple things. If you need any recipes, PM myself, or check out the recipes section.
I am super excited to see so many Canadians on this forum, lets keep this thread rolling!!
