Well today I am starting a gluten free diet. It isn't because I have celiac disease or any known gluten sensitivities. My PCP suggested going gluten free and preservative free to help with my joint pain. I was eating preservative free during the four months that I lived with my daughter, son in law and grandson as they eat preservative and organic. I did all of the cooking.
I ordered a cookbook that arrived today and did some grocery shopping as well. I am not much of a bread eater. So cutting out wheat bread shouldn't be a problem. I actually made a gluten free potato muffing for my "kids" last week and it was very good. I make a to die for pumpkin cookie recipe which I think that I can substitute the wheat flour with another.
The hardest thing for me to give up is my coke zero. I brewed a large batch of green tea and started drinking that this morning instead of my morning coke zero. I hate coffee.
After going gluten free for 8 weeks, I am going to add PurePea which has also been recommended. I do not want to start both at the same time as then if I feel an improvement, I won't know which one it is.
