I Really Lucked Out

I'm sooo excited!!! In the last couple months I've found a pretty good variety of gluten-free foods at various makets but yesterday I hit the jackpot! A girl from work told me she saw a store that had a big sign in the window stating they had the largest selection of gluten-free foods in the Bay Area. This girl doesnt really know what gluten is....just that I cant eat it. I checked out the store last night and they had brownies, muffins, pizza crust, bagels, cookies and so much more. They were taking orders for gluten-free pumpkin pies. They had alot of Kinnikinnick stuff...I figured the only way I'd get that stuff was online. Anyways...I cant eat any of it yet cuz I'm still dealing with leaky gut and eating pretty bland right now. At least I have something to look forward to though!

Also we are having a BBQ at work...my boss told me to let him know what I can eat and he'll make sure they have food for me...I thought that was a nice gesture. :)
