Day 7 of gluten-free

1 1
Ms. A


Here I am a week into this lifestyle change and hoping I am on the right track. In general my digestive system feels better, but I seem to be constantly finding gluten hidden in things I wouldn't think of. Yesterday's discovery happened while reading the ingredients to an Italian dressing packet. I wouldn't have guessed that it would have wheat in it.

Other learning curves are happening as I study labels, noticing where they clearly state "gluten free" and where I am left questioning the food. Most packages have the "CONTAINS:" area in which I check for it to say wheat. However, I realize that wheat isn't the only thing that has gluten.

My appointment today with a nutritionist had to be rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances. I have the appointment rescheduled for next week and am looking forward to getting more education on this topic.

It's much simpler to stick with whole foods, or at least foods with 3 ingredients or less.  You don't have to spend all your shopping time reading labels that way.  After 6 months gluten-free or so is a good time to start expanding your diet choices.
