You Are Now Entering the Gluten-free Zone
Yes, I've decided to go the ever-popular "gluten-free" route for the next week. I don't want to bore (or disgust) you with my reasons, but I've been advised that if gluten is my problem, I'll know it within a week of being g-free.
Seeing that I rate "cookies" as my second-favorite food on all the earth (right under ice-cream, the reigning king), the task of cutting all wheat and wheat-related products from my diet presents its challenges. Honestly, though, I'm faring pretty well. I'm entering day 4 and feeling good. I eat a lot of fruit, homemade granola (thank heaven above that oats don't contain gluten because I love me some granola), and eggs.
That being said, I am getting a little bored with the current menu and was hoping that some of you might be able to help me out with some fun, jazzy, gluten-free recipes. If you don't even know what gluten is, well, then just consider yourself exempt from this assignment; we'll catch you the next time around. But for all you gluten savvy folks, I'd love some new ideas!
