I've only been at this gluten-free 'diet' (or rather 'lifestyle') since April 7th. That's about three weeks. Last week was a challenge. I had extra appointments and evening events and skipped dinner a few nights because of them. There was food at a couple of the events, but I couldn't eat any of it. I was in too much of a rush to pack my own, so I just went without.
What a mistake. By the time the weekend came, I was ravenous for a square meal. All I could think about was eating meat. On top of that, the cupboards were nearly bare. There wasn't anything to grab to snack on. Everything I had that was gluten-free needed to be cooked and I wasn't in the mood to cook it! I'm still dealing with anemia and a lack of energy. A vicious circle.
So, I went grocery shopping on Saturday and Sunday and stocked up! I'm going to try to stay ahead of the game (assuming my pocketbook cooperates) so that I have quick meals on hand. I know there will be times when I run out of food again, but I'm just going to have to suck it up and spend more time preparing food and freezing it if i want to stay on top of this.
I really don't want to be obsessed with food, but what a desperate feeling when there's food in the house and I can't eat any of it!
