confessions of a foodaholic

sharing my life through food

Welcome to the gluten free world!

on December 16, 2011

so you’ve chosen to give up gluten, what are you going to do next???

one week ago i asked myself this very question, as i decided to embark on the journey towards better health. to give a little background on myself, i just recently was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, possible crohn’s, on top of having an already underactive thyroid.

what does a girl do when her health goes from 100% to 0% in less than a year??

curl up and hide from the world? No!

say screw it and go on like nothing’s happened? No!

take every pill thrown at her? No!

change eating/exercise/lifestyle habits? YES!

i’ve decided to take a serious look at the way i live my life, and what improvements i can make in order to make it a better life

for starters, what i eat needs to change

we all know the old adage, “you are what you eat”

well, now is the perfect time to test that out!

i want to be a healthy, nutrient dense, piece of fruit

not a stale, over processed, chemically filled piece of “food”

i want to give my body the nutrients it needs,

so it can in turn repair itself and give me the energy that i need

nothing is more important than health

for without it…what do we have?

at this point in my life, i’m already a vegetarian (thank you food, inc!)

and after some research, have decided to give up gluten as well, as a lot of it shows great improvements for those with UC

so, welcome to my health journey

as i embark on this new, gluten free world!
