Congratulations! I know it's hard but that is the best attitude. I strive for that, too, but still struggle sometimes. We have a choice. Keep looking up:)

Have you heard of the specific carbohydrate diet? It's used to help heal digestive disease. I got on it and after 2 day I could notice a difference. I have a mild form of C and I'm in my 20's and I'm afraid it will get worse if I don't get it under control. I ran across this website http://pecanbread.co.../coprotocol.htm . The diet she is referring to is based on Elaine Gottschall's book Breaking the Vicious Cycle and there is more information on scdlifestyle.com. I wish I knew more of what to tell you but sometimes it helps me to read people's testimonies of what worked for them and maybe it can work for someone else, too.

When eating at restaurants, I ask for the manager and ask questions about how exactly they cook it (what kind of seasonings, is it made with the same grease that something has been fried in, separate utensils from gluten food...). Sometimes you can feel them out and see if they have any clue with what you are talking about. If I don't think they have a clue what is or isn't 'gluten free,' I prefer to just get a salad (no croutons!). Whole foods, such as chicken, vegetables, and fruit, is always the safest way to go.

 

I know the gluten-free lifestyle can be overwhelming at first. We've all been there, and at times it still is. When you get back, I would recommend doing some research. Gluten can be in 'hidden ingredients,' such as natural flavorings and food starch even. If you have an iPhone, that has been a tremendous help to look things up when at chain restaurants. Don't hesitate to ask questions. This forum is a great support. Congrats on the new job! Hope all goes well so you can enjoy your retreat!
