Dairy and Gluten Free – we’ll see

For the past four weeks I have been on a no dairy, no gluten diet. Prescribed by my Naturopath because I was complaining about a puffy gut. The thought of putting pants on had become so uncomfortable I was beginning to live in my housecoat.

To date I have been fortunate enough to be able to eat everything I want but perhaps the tide was about to change. We discussed why my belly wasn’t its usual self and we decide it’s either age (oh my) or that I have been carrying my stress there and it’s had enough. Either way I was willing to cut out many things I love eating in an attempt to rectify the problem.

It is amazing how the body craves what it can’t have. I could handle the no toast with my eggs, or the putting on hold the pasta, but when I was out with my sister for dinner and I ordered my favorite martini…grey goose with three blue cheese olives… OMG I realized I couldn’t eat the olives. I knew this was going to be harder than I thought.  My love for food and flavour was being cut off at the knees.

In the name of science, and fitting back into my jeans, I persevered and in short order my stomach did indeed calm down and I felt a lot better.

After a few weeks of eliminating everything that could possibly have cow dairy or gluten, I have begun to slowly reintroduce my digestive system to these potential irritants to test the water. I believe I have found a happy healthy balance. Some of my takeaways; I like hamburgers better without the bun. I love goat milk. There are actually gluten free breads that are very tasty. Beware of the ones that you could use as the corner stone for your next house. The most valuable lesson for me has been that even though I thought I was a healthy eater, there will always be a way to improve my diet.

Going forward I will continue to put St. Agar in my salads and eat a chocolate chip cookie from time to time. I will certainly partake in the splendour of the blue cheese martini without hesitating. This has been a lesson in moderation and awareness. Being more conscious of how much gluten and cow dairy I am feeding my body. My belly will serve as my fail proof measure of whether I am doing a good job.

When was the last time you reviewed your eating habits? Is there an area that could use a tune up?

  17. Based on my observation, after a foreclosed home is available at a sale, it is common for any borrower to be able to still have any remaining unpaid debt on the financial loan. There are many loan merchants who try to have all expenses and liens paid by the upcoming buyer. Nevertheless, depending on certain programs, laws, and state legal guidelines there may be many loans that are not easily handled through the exchange of loans. Therefore, the duty still falls on the borrower that has obtained his or her property in foreclosure process. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this web site.
