The biggest concern I have is how I will adjust to the different taste and texture of gluten-free foods. As anyone who knows me can attest to: I am a really picky eater! Not only does the food have to taste good, it also has to smell good and have the right texture. Gluten-free bread and pasta will be a challenge to get used to for me.
I am encouraged, though. I have spent the day looking at gluten-free recipes, and have found some good ones to try. I have also ordered some books on Amazon.com. These include: "The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide" by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and "Gluten-Free on a Shoestring" by Nicole Hunn. I look forward to seeing what they have to offer.
I was advised to just eat as I normally would until I meet with the doctor in a couple weeks, so I will be able to have the BBQ ribs I asked for on my birthday!!! And I still get to eat some delicious Christmas cookies, but I also plan to try out some gluten-free cookies too!
So good luck to me as I set out on a new journey! Once I get going, I know I will start feeling better and it will all be worth it!
BTW: Anyone who is already gluten-free, feel free to send me a message with a recipe to try!
