Those of you who've been following my blog for some time know that a) I have zero willpower and b) I don't like changes with my food.
Well, I'm about to be sorely tested. I'm going gluten-free for the next two weeks, a gluten elimination diet to rule out some health stuff.
Oh man. I've only been on it one day and already I miss bread. And pasta. And yes, yes. There are gluten free replacements for both. I was looking at them in the grocery store on Saturday. They never so much as budged from the shelf. Tapioca bread???? Um, not right now. I'd have to be really desperate, and it's only day 2. Complete desperation hasn't set in yet.
I was looking at some corn tortillas, thinking they could be used as a bread substitute for sandwiches. Um, no thanks. The pack I found was soft and mushy and just looked blah. Maybe it was the brand--and when desperation sets in (you know it will) I'll be searching other stores for different options.
I'm very thankful that my three favorite food groups--caffeine, potato chips, and Snickers bars--aren't affected by this diet. Some chips are, but not the ones I eat. Thank goodness. A girl can only take so much deprivation.
