Making a Change?

The stars have aligned and I can ignore them no longer. Certain health problems persist in my home and too many sources are suggesting that a gluten-free diet might be helpful on all fronts. I really want everyone to feel better and I'm willing to try this approach.

The latest person who pointed me toward gluten-free I asked for shopping advice. I don't really know what I'm looking for as a read a label and the idea of reading every label before I put it in the shopping cart is overwhelming to me. She just said, "Oh, just ask the supermarket employees to point you to the gluten-free aisle. There are lots of nice choices."

So I went to the market and picked up these options.

I'm nervous, though. There are people in my family who are not adventurous eaters and resistant to change.

This is going to go over like a turd in a punch bowl.


  1. I have to admit I don't have gluten problems myself so I can't really speak as one who has to face those limitations, but I think we'd probably all be better off if we ate a little less gluten in our diet. And there really are a lot of good alternatives (although that doesn't necessarily mean getting the same end product with different ingredients). Sometimes the best "alternative" is a completely different mindset.

  2. "like a turd in a punch bowl" - - tee he. but health problems are no laughing matter. Share with us what you find out on your new journey. I don't know much.


I write my posts imagining that I am already in the middle of a conversation with you. I hope you will comment and be a part of the conversation.
