Cravings? Well, if someone offered me a buttered slice of sourdough french right now, I might look at it a bit longingly, but I wouldn't feel like I was going to die because I couldn't have it. Like I said, think of all gluten as being rat poison, and you will pretty soon learn not to want it. I look at OP's shopping baskets at the checkout and I think, yuck, look what tht woman is eating and feeing her family It depends on how quickly you transition from the grieving phase to the experimental phase. But you have had such a lot of grief lately, it must be really hard. I lost my best friend to whom I confided everything about six years ago, and I still haven't found anyone to talk to the same way I talked to her So I feel your pain.
I am really not sure what foods fall outside your must-have organic category. I too attempt to avoid GMO at every opportunity, and so eliminating corn and soy helped that problem a lot. And of course wheat. I don't know if there are any organic processed gluten free foods - this will require more label reaing on your part, but then you are alrleady used to doing that
Let me know if there is anything else we can help you with. And feel free to come and talk to us any time.
Thanks, Mushroom! You've been a huge help already, as well as a comfort. Yes, I have been a very avid lable reader for many years. I also research everything thoroughly on the Internet and in books. There just seems so much to research all at once now, so it's extremely overwhelming. What do you use for hair products? Do you have to research every single ingredient to know if it has gluten or is there a list published somewhere to tell if ingredients in hair and skin products contain gluten? I haven't been able to find much on that yet. What do you use for a moisturizer? Do I need to be concerned with laundry and cleaning products too? Can hand soap contain gluten?
