Those of you who know me know that lately I have been eating mostly Gluten Free.
Before you all roll your eyes and say ``oh, another one of THOSE`` know that I am not eating this way to lose weight or to be trendy.
If I could indulge in all things gluten all day everyday I would but unfortunately I can`t.
Since I can remember I have suffered from what Dr's called IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).
I also have suffered from low iron, chronic fatigue, eczema and severe bloating.
After having Luca last year I started developing really bad rashes on my arms, feet and elbows.
I went to the Dr. who prescribed cortisone cream like many times before but this time the rashes were not going away.
I talked to a friend who was in school studying to be a nutritionist and she suggested cutting out gluten from my diet.
I cut it out for about 2 weeks and noticed a world of a difference.
Not only was my rash less inflamed but I found I had about 10x the energy I usually have.
I ate something with gluten in it during this trial and within a couple of hours I had a rash all over my lower arm.
The day after I had consumed gluten I had a migraine and felt so tired I could barely keep my eyes open.
Since then I have been doing my best to eat gluten free.
I won't lie and say I am enjoying eating only gluten free.
I miss my gluten but I don't miss gluten nearly as much as I thought I would.
Probably because the thought of the rashes and exhaustion coming back terrifies me.
( and probably because most potato chips and french fires are glutten free WOO HOO)
I am going to see the Dr. in the next few weeks and I am going to mention to her I'd like to be tested for Celiac.
 I sincerely hope I don't have Celiac and im crossing my fingers that it is something completely different than a gluten intolerance.
 I would really love to just eat all the yummy stuff I used to eat without worrying about feeling like crap the next day or breaking out in a rash but I have a strong feeling this won't be the case.
There are so many great products available for people on a gluten free diet but I find most of them taste like cardboard.
I have been sticking to good old meat, veggies and fruits for 98% of my diet.
I know I need to try to incorporate more grains into my diet but I am slowly trying to figure this gluten free thing out.
I did find one gluten free product that I am happy to say does not taste like cardboard at all!
Betty Crocker makes the most delicious gluten free Bisquick mix that I have been obsessed with so I hope all you on a gluten free diet can enjoy!!!
