I'm Gonna Miss Ya, Home Slice

I've been reading for a while now about the possible link between Celiac and Hashimoto's.  I've been working hard to ignore that link.  What fun is giving up gluten to someone who adores baking bread?  Not to mention the extra hassle of checking every ingredient on everything I buy.  Yuck.

Fortunately, there are a large number of gluten-free bread recipes.  Unfortunately, most of them call for things I'm not yet familiar with.  Xanthan gum sounds like alien vomit.  Yippee!

"Kids, get excited!  We're having alien spit biscuits for brunch!"

Yeah, not so much.

I haven't plunged into this with reckless abandon.  The recommendation is to try it out for two weeks and see if it has a positive effect on your symptoms.  It's definitely worth it if it takes away at least some of the fatigue and daily pain.

I'm looking for simple, healthy ways to make the switch.  The good news is that aside from the breads, it's really not that hard.  Fresh fruits and vegetables are familiar and comforting in our current menu.  Pastas and pies will add a bit of a challenge, but I'm certain there are a number of alternatives.  This recipe looks promising.

I'm saving the big switch until I get paid next week, and will have to adjust the grocery list.  The farmer's market will be a huge help.  I'll keep you updated!
