What Am I Doing Wrong?

Recommended Posts

I don't know much about migraines but I know plenty about cooking. To this end I say GET YOURSELF A CROCKPOT GRL. Whether you'll be cooking large meals to eat for a few days or small ones that thing saves me so much time on "cooking". Just throw together the ingredients, set the timer (always get one with an automatic timer it's worth the expense) and when you get home from your day you'll have a fresh unprocessed flavorful meal right there waiting for you to eat it.

Really does wonders for my busy schedule.

I second this! I love my slowcooker. And check out this blog: http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ (Everything she makes is gluten-free)

Thank you Lena and GlutenFreeManna. I actually have 2 ancient slow cookers. They are from the early 60's but they still work well. No timer though. I love the link and I'm exploring it now.

That would be bad they are so handy for work especially since I work with a bunch of gluten eaters. I can just keep my bars in my purse wash my hands pull out a bar and it never has to touch anything in the breakroom. I think for the first few days I'll chance it. I'm off work Thursday and Friday so I won't be eating them those two days, if I'm suddenly feeling better on Saturday I'll definitely remove those from my diet.

Thank you.

I eat one Lara bar or Kind bar a day and have not had trouble with them. They are lifesavers for me for travel, work and business events where they leave food for everyone but I can eat it or get out to get my own food. I have some stashed in my purse, briefcase, car and desk.

I do second the use of the crockpot and Stephanie's 365 day crockpot blog. She's great.

Are you a vegetarian? If so, you might get some good ideas from the gluten free goddess's blog: http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/

Good luck!

I am now pretty confident the migraines came from the artificial sweeteners. Now I'm starting to the think the tummy trouble was caused by eggs. So I'm going Vegan and see if that fixes everything. It certainly can't hurt. :)
