Last week I started cutting gluten out of my diet to see if I will start noticing any difference in my symptoms. Instead of cutting all gluten products out of my diet at one time, I have been replacing gluten-free items for the regular foods I was eating as I run out of them. The reason for slowly transitioning is because I know me and I would get too overwhelmed if I cut everything out at once. I also have to consider having withdrawal symptoms from cutting out all of the gluten at once and I do not need to suffer from anymore symptoms. I ran out of my favorite wheat bread last week and I replaced that with brown rice tortillas. I am going tomorrow to get gluten-free noodles so that I can make some homemade chicken corn noodle soup. I notice that since I’ve been sick with this sinus problem the only thing I can eat that doesn’t make me feel nauseated is chicken corn soup and chicken noodle soup.
I have been checking out online different gluten-free recipes and I hope that I can adjust to this new diet regimen without too much difficulty. There will be lots of things that I am going to miss eating but it’s worth a shot to see if I feel any better.
I’ll keep everyone posted on my gluten-free transition and progress!
