I have been gluten free (again) for a few months now. Its something I have played around with time and time again as wheat and gluten has never really agreed with me but this time I am doing it for health reasons; to fix my gut and thyroid issues once and for all. I don't find it hard to stay off gluten when I'm focused. I love cooking and there are heaps of fun and healthy alternatives to keep me on track. BUTTTTT last week when we went to the snow; I was tired from being up late launching the ebook and the fluffy white stuff kept staring me in the face everywhere I went so I had a bit of a gluten binge... Nothing over the top, just had a nibble on some white sourdough here and there. It was pretty tasty but I could tell my body wasn't agreeing with it almost instantly, I felt a bit yuck in the stomach but let it go and got on with things. The next day was a different story; I was puffy, bloated and a complete psychopath... like really depressed!!! Not because I felt bad for eating it, I didn't at all, it was just my mood, it was what really showed me how much my body doesn't like gluten, food can affect us is such different ways and I was feeling like that most of the time when I was consuming the stuff. How did I not realise before that something so simple could make me feel so crap; tired, lethargic, depressed, down and all round yuck. Its definitely something I know now that I need to stay away from. Its nice to be aware of what works well and what doesn't, Its time to be more mindful in the way we all eat.
