Yes, you would leave so that I'd have time to bake some other delicious gluten-free baked good! And....if it's later in the day, a glass of wine or a nice cocktail! If I could just get back cheese!!!
Cheese... after over a year gluten-free, I'm dabbling in some dairy again but I'm afraid to restart cheese because I don't think I could stop again. LOL
I take the diet very seriously for two reasons:
- I was diagnosed in middle age so I had developed more AI diseases and painful problems that were getting really hard to ignore. With the way things were going, I could clearly picture myself as a balding, stooped over 65 year old who needs a walker to get around and couldn't open a bottle if my life depended on it. If I had been diagnosed 20 or 30 years earlier into this disease I could see having a harder time staying gluten-free simply because the stakes weren't so high yet - I hadn't lost so much at that time.
- My kids have issues with gluten and there is NO WAY I will let them experience the health problems I've had just for convenience or a treat. I model healthy eating, spend a tonne on fresh foods and organics, and don't let them near gluten in the hopes that they will grow up to be healthy... I won't risk them.... I'm going all mama-bear here. LOL
