I am through the withdrawal and am feeling great!! I am experimenting with a few different bread mixes out there. The Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain one is very good if you like the taste of rye bread. I also like the Kinnikinik sunflower flax seed bread. That one is not a yeast bread, it is a little heavier and sweeter than most breads, but is very good to make a peanut butter/banana sandwich with. I am also eating tons of salads and fresh fruits, and frittata's are also my new favorite for breakfast, lunch or supper.
I will have to start experimenting with bread recipes from scratch, as the mixes are a bit expensive, however, it is only me eating them, and I cut the slices thin, so a loaf lasts me quite a while.
I was away for the weekend skiing in Kananaskis country (Nakiska ski hill) and the weather was gorgeous, fresh snow, absolutely beautiful. It was also my first trip away going gluten free and managed to get through the weekend okay....stuck with salads, etc in the restaurant, and other than that packed my own food (yogurt, homemade gluten-free muffins, homemade gluten-free sandwiches, fresh fruite, etc.) so with my cooler full of goodies I was set. The only thing that caused me grief over the weekend was the red wine but I think that was a quantity issue .
