The Gluten Free Learning Curve…
I am beginning the gluten free lifestyle, and in so many ways I feel completely clueless on all of this. I feel like there is so much I need to be learning, but I am committed to taking charge of my health. Thursday after my endoscopy and colonoscopy I was told that I needed to go gluten free. I have the weekend to enjoy my gluten filled favorites, but sadly Monday morning begins my new gluten free life. As silly as it sounds I am not quite sure how to take care of myself, I am learning, I have gone to the library and checked out several cookbooks, and am busily reading to learn what to do and what NOT to do.
I did get one new cookbook this week as a gift from Mr. Love From Scratch (thanks honey!), that I am really looking forward to using. I have done some gluten free cooking, but most of it has been for other people. I am learning about all the different flours, the different combinations needed to successfully bake gluten free. I am very excited to try the recipes in this cookbook, I am sure a review will be coming in the future on this book. Actually on Amazon I am finding lots of gluten free cookbooks that will be on my wish list. I know that with these adjustments to my cooking and baking there will be some changes to this blog. Obviously there will be lots more gluten free recipes, and I am sure you will be reading of the flops and successes. It is a learning curve, and I am hoping that soon I will have the hang of things. I know there are others other there that are gluten free…what are your secrets & tricks to living gluten free? I’m learning so be patient with me on the journey, but as for now I see a few gluten free recipes calling my name for me to try.
