I am one of those unlucky individuals who is sensitive to wheat. Whenever I eat it I get brain fog ... and sometimes I even get so exhausted after eating I have to lay down. The worst part is that I really love breads and pastas, and I travel to Europe on business at least once or twice a year. (Can you say TORTURE?)
Fortunately, I can eat a little without feeling the symptoms. So my new tactic is to save my wheat treats to those times when there's an especially delicious-looking, handmade pasta with a fabulous sauce, or when there's a freshly baked, dense, whole-grain brown bread with an irresistible aroma.
I took the photo above in Rome, where they serve their pastas with a pink sauce, not the red one we're used to. It was freshly made beef ravioli and worth every bite.
Do you have any food limitations? How do you cope?
