Talk about your culture shift

I just finished a two hour meeting with a nutritionist and we will be going dairy free, gluten free, and (almost) sugar free, as of Monday. And yes, “we” meaning all six of us. I’ve got some good tips and supplements for the Bulldozer, an outline for menu planning and a phone number and email address for emergency help. (You can bet I’ll be using that.)

And my stomach is in knots, my mind is racing, and I am FREAKING OUT!

I’m also kicking myself for the 5 boxes of crackers and 6 boxes of cereal I bought yesterday. Yes, I only paid $0.50 to $1.00 for each of them, but still.

This has been a long time coming, but I think I had to be sufficiently frustrated with our lack of progress with the Bulldozer before I took that leap off the gluten free cliff. (Does this make me a bad mother? It feels like it.)

What this means: bigger grocery bills, much more “from scratch cooking,” absolutely NO eating out. It relieves you from buy levitra http://www.slovak-republic.org/history/national-oppression/ stress and promotes sound sleep. Natural herbs have some highly important ingredients that body recognises as viagra 50 mg food offer potent results. Precautions need to be taken with both the branded and generic ED drugs contain sildenafil pharmacy australia cialis citrate. Take this mixture thrice daily for viagra super effective results. And no more bread. My heart is breaking. (But as my children are giving up mac and cheese, I can at least keep my bread belly aching quiet. I’ll just blog it.)

Oh yes, and lots more planning. Fortunately there is a wealth of information about gluten free/dairy free eating out there. I’d better get cracking. Only 5 more days until our whole new culinary world.

Merry Christmas to us.

    May I strongly, strongly recommend the yahoogroup "Foodlab"? I and a bunch of other food-restricted mamas are on there, to talk about things like how to modify favorite recipes, how to find new traditions for family, etc. It's more about cooking and ideas and recipes and support than anything else, and it's a great resource.

    Going gluten free/dairy free isn't hard, once you get the hang of it. It's the learning curve that's tough. But hey, for someone who questions the culture all the time, this will be easy. =)

    Depending on your choices, it isn't necessarily more expensive. We've been eating this way for a while. And it doesn't mean no eating out ever, it just means you have to work with restaurants and choose more carefully (Japanese restaurants are pretty darned easy to negotiate on a gf/df diet, for example).

    A very wise man, who was a raw foodist and bodybuilder, once said to me, "Nothing tastes as good as I feel" and he was right. Even people who don't necessarily have health problems find that all kinds of little annoyances they thought were "normal me" disappear on a gf/df diet. Just give it some time.

    Good luck on your journey!

    Ooh, I love Japanese. Yeah, as I told the OT, the hardest part is jumping off the cliff. After that, you're just falling.

    We are not gf/df, but I love the A Year of Crockpoting blog which has lots and lots of easy crockpot recipes that are. I believe it is crockpot365.come if you want to check it out. She has some great stuff that we've enjoyed!

    Best of luck to you!

    I love her blog. Crockpots are great for mommys. Although she isn't dairy free. She loves her cheese! (So do I. Cheese, I shall miss you, too!)
