Wow, my quaility of sleep has been so good since we have gone gluten free on the 10th of May. I had no idea what I was missing out on!!! True rest!!! And truly I have a lot of it to catch up on . I have no idea why going gluten free has increased my quaility of sleep, but it is so good, I feel like having a party over it!!!
Jim & I chatted today & he had some new health points he has noticed since going 'mostly' gluten free, no more IBS symptoms, unless he gets glutened, better sleep and his heartburn (which used to be constant) is nearly gone!!! Only one episode this past week! That IS amazing! And, we both have noticed, a more slender, less puffy look around our his face and mine. It is nice.
Wondering if I have to give up all except baked taters while at resturantes? The oil the potatos are cooked in, if vegitable may have gluten in it, so baked would be safest. Chicken,
though, I ordered grilled and it was cooked in oil, and not sure what kind. It is a local resturante that we have frequented for years and are on a first name basis with the owner, so maybe I will call her and see what oils they are using. Chili's, by the way goes out of their way to make sure you don't get any gluten in / on/ or around your food, they are outstanding!
My hands had been puffy, swollen and sore for sometime, and they reminded me of my great grandmother's hands~ I thought I was destined to have those painful hands the rest of my life. Guess what? The puffiness is down I'd say more than 60%! :) Things just keep getting better!!!!
More so than thinking back to what my life would have been like all these 39 years without gluten, I find myself wondering what my grandmothers, aunts, uncles and my mom. How can eleminating one ingrident cause such a drastic change? Simply amazing to me.
