Do You Ever Just Want To Try It Again?

Recommended Posts

I did a gluten challenge and got so sick, I'm PARANOID about gluten! But, yes, a hot buttered homemade toast sure would be nice. eKatherine, sure do wonder about those biscuits you mentioned- could you share the recipe? I don't know if that's "off-topic", sorry.

Wow. What an appropriate time for me to read this topic. It has been 1 1/2 years since I have been on the gluten free diet. I have been doing so well, never purposely eating anything forbidden on purpose. I had completely lost the urge to eat anything but gluten free foods. Then, yesterday, at a family gathering, someone brought out a homemade apple pie! This pie was bigger than any pie I ever laid eyes on. (maybe that was all in my mind) But it was homemade from bottom crust to the little laces across the top. The vanilla icecream sat beside it and I just felt myself foaming at the mouth. I have never had such a strong urge to cheat. Then, I remembered how I got glutened 2 months ago at a BBQ and how my weekend was ruined and how painful it was. But I just can't shake that feeling I got yesterday, my mouth is watering right now as I think about it......(oh, and by the way, I just ate the icecream!!)

I can definitely relate to the wish to partake in special celebrations that center around food. The social aspect of this illness is one of the hardest parts. But on the bright side, it's easy to make really good pie crust gluten-free & most fillings can be adapted by replacing flour with tapioca. Now yeast bread.... that's my tormentor. I need to knead!

After a year of being (what I thought was ) gluten-free... I made a beautiful crusty loaf of bread that I'd been known for earlier... and my daugher walked in to find me stuffing a huge buttered piece in my mouth. It was like a slow-motion movie... her yelling "N-O-O-O-O-O-O!!" as I chomped down!!

Nothing happened!! I thought maybe I could "plan" a cheat every month or so... next month I was gonna try Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza!! I was so excited.

I didn't try it the next month, but the next time I was accidentally glutened... it really hurt me.

No more planned cheats... and w/ the help of folks here who showed me stuff I was doing WRONG... no more cheats at all!!
